In that case, Saturday is fine with me as long as it's still 16-17 UTC. Will have to ask rest of team though.

I though Americans use the AM/PM system lol. So 4-5PM UTC right? That should be fine yeah.

That awkward moment you try to play Solo Queue Ladder and you find your Osu NYT referee

So I've been told that there was some dissent/dissatisfaction during our match verus pls enjoy game. First off apologies on behalf of myself (and to a lesser extent my team) towards the staff. I can understand how it would be frustrating to deal with this match in particular since we collectively pulled some rather brazen shenanigans. That being said it's been a rather hectic weekend and whatnot with real life obligations and scheduling conflicts. I'm pretty sure most of us didn't even have time to practice the map pool, so a few of us took some liberty in messing around on the maps during the match. Granted that's not an excuse or meant to be taken as such, but I hope Suhun/Tehron/Bubble don't feel too upset about it especially since I can assure you guys that there are no hard feelings or "disrespect" among us (the participants from both teams).

On a side note since this is the new year's tournament happy lunar new year to those who celebrate it!

-= This is my personal opinion, only mine, not the opinion of my team. I did not discuss this topic with anyone but myself. =-

I believe the difficulty of map pool for finals should be lowered because it contains maps that have only been fc'd and completed by players of ranks way higher than ours (#1,000 - #4,000). I'm not saying it should be the same or lower difficulty as semi finals, I would really appreciate the difficulty to be higher than semis but not THIS high. I got a friend of mine who is currently #2,000 (consistent Nomod and HD player) and even himself found difficulty in getting high combos in some of the maps.
Examples of these are:
EOS - Hidden
Haelequin - HR
2010 - Nomod
d:for the DELTA - tiebreaker
Bluemenkranz - DT

If you look at the global rankings for some of these, you will find that, for example, in Bluemenkranz, there are only 7 global fc's with DT, done by players with much more experience than us (#1,000 players). For example "mrspazzameme17" fc'd this with almost 99 accuracy, and he is #845.
Another map is Haelequin which has barely no modded fc's at all, and you are asking us to do it with hr.

I can completely understand why you would make the finals bracket hard and intense, but I personally think this is overdoing it.
This tournament's maximum rank for entrance is 10k and some of these maps can be way out of the league of a #10k player so please, if possible, review the map pool you picked.

PD: Lmao I'm not salty. I just want everyone to have a chance to play a map in which they will do decently good at and not so much rely on luck or smacking the keyboard keys, not saying it should be easy to fc, just possible ;)

Sincerely, Snowwy ~~

The tiebreaker seems pretty damn extreme

I am completely aware of the difficulty of the mappool though I don't feel like it's too hard. I do agree some of the maps are exceptionally hard compared to some others (Blumenkranz and d:for the DELTA for example) but there are reasons these maps are hard and why I picked them. Blumenkranz for example has low AR which makes it harder to read thus has less FCs with DT in global rankings. The reason I picked these maps is to challenge the player in different aspects of the game and yes, the main goal for the tournament is to have fun but I still want to keep the competitive and challenging side of the game in it. Although the maps are hard and challenging, they are also fun and rewarding after a little bit of practice (this is personal opinion and does not apply to everyone).

The global rankings on a map has nothing to do with making a mappool since a map can be recently ranked/qualified or even unranked. To be honest, you can just ignore the rankings on the map and just look at the map itself, see how hard it is to play and read, test it and come to a conclusion based on the information you gathered. I'm not saying this is how it should be done or how everyone else does it, this is just how I personally do it.

I acknowledge this and I do agree the map is a borderline pick for the mappool. I could still change it but note that this leaves less time for you and everyone else to practice the map.

With this stated I will not change the mappool other than the tiebreaker, if that is what people want (I would like to know this today since the change will leave you only a couple days to practice the map).

I appreciate the feedback I get from everyone. Most of the time it's helpful and will help me improve the current and/or future tournaments and this is no exception.

I wish the best of luck for everyone in the finals and I hope you will have fun and enjoy despite the flaws in the tournament!

I don't know about anyone else but I'd be cool with the tiebreaker changing right now
*To clarify, I'm fine with a TB change but am also fine with the current one staying
pkk
lets change TB to dreamless wanderer xd
