Hello! From my NM Queue~

Intense

01:15:211 (5) - Maybe place it at X 144:Y 92 to make a straight line with 01:15:395 (6,7,1) - -- The problem with doing only this is that the curve at 01:14:475 (2,3,4,5) - would look funky since the angles of 01:14:475 (2,3,4) - and 01:14:843 (3,4,5) - would be so different. So I set up this combo better to keep this curve and move (5) to get the linear feel

You may want to consider putting sliders here 01:33:248 (1) - and 01:34:721 (1) - ,give the mapper a breather from that massive singletap especially for this difficulty like what you did at 01:30:303 (1) - -- I agree with the sentiment, but doing so would give 3 measures of single tap at 01:26:254 (2) - and only 2 measures of single tap at01:34:721 (1) - . For pacing reasons, I'd like the latter measures to be more intense than the former measures, so I made 01:32:144 (2) - into three 1/2 sliders, which gives a bigger break to set up the 3 measure singletapping. Good suggestion

Insane

01:11:346 (2) - Blanket with 01:11:714 (4) - -- While your design is nicer, I prefer my flow. The reason is that if I make your change, than 01:11:346 (2,3,4) - would have the same inward curve kind of flow that 01:11:714 (4,5,6) - has. I want these to feel different, so having the different curves into them expresses that a little nicer, in my opinion.

You may wanna consider putting the hp drain for this difficulty to 7 cause its 5 stars -- plenty of 5 star maps have HP = 6, and I think 163bpm doesn't want too high of a drain rate.

Good rhythm and flow,generally cant find many mistakes in the map.Good luck with your map! -- thanks!

Check AI Mod for a few distance snap issues. -- fixed

....aaaaaaand I spilled my tea all over my keyboard – oh no :(

00:20:365 (3) - If you do this here you might aswell do it 00:23:310 (3) - here and 00:26:254 (3) - here etc – made this just a circle because I see your point but don't want to change the latter parts
00:44:659 (1,2,1,2) - I don't really think these are the best option here, they don't really make much sense rythm wise and really catched the eye – they go with the strings in the background, and slowing down this section seems okay to me for pacing. If you don't like the design, well, sorry I guess, but I think they're fine. If you're talking about 00:50:549 (1,2) - , then I could see changing them, though I need to replace them with something better, I just don't know what.

[Normal]
If you care, check dem blankets – too lazy XD
00:19:076 (3,4) - These feel kinda awkward because you were following a totally different rythm before – Okay, I also like going with the 3/2 tuba here, so changed this up
00:25:702 (5,6) - All these kinda things where you have 2 on top of eachother and then big spacing (00:25:886 (6,7) - ) with the same timing are really not a good idea imo. I am not going to mention any more of these – the idea was to express pitch changes, but this is not the difficulty for it.
00:28:647 (5,6,7) - I think you only did this custom stack once or twice in the whole diff. So maybe just stack it normally? – I don't have a problem with this
01:34:721 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - Don't you want single notes here again like 01:28:831 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - for consistency etc? – Originally the early parts were also sliders since I was told they looked messy. Made these rhythms consistent

[Hard]
00:14:291 (2,4) - Stack these perfectly – wish the editor did this nicer so you and I wouldn't have to check these
00:21:837 (3,1) - ^
01:03:800 (1,2,3,4) - Make this spacing more consistent. It will look very clean if you do so – The slider leniency on 3 makes it so that keeping consistent distance plays odd. I did try to clean this up though.
01:25:334 (4) - You can just stack it under 01:24:598 (1) - , it will be np – I like having it like this so the player can see the note instead of it being hidden. I'm fine trading this playability for a slightly uglier pattern.

[Intense]
00:12:635 (3,6) - Perhaps you can avoid this overlap – Ideally yes, but there's a lot of things that would be disrupted if I change this pattern, and the overlap is placed in the middle of the slider, and 3 fades almost all the way out, so I don't think it's too bad
00:17:420 (4,5,6,1,2) - Spacing inconsistencies – 4 → 5 is for slider leniency, but I fixed (1) so it's a little smoother
00:19:261 - I'd put a note here instead of the sliderend. I highly recommend you change this – There is the main melody rhythm of the chimes, and there is the harmony of this tuba. Using a combination of both rhythms doesn't make sense, so I have to pick one. I think using 3/2 rhythm of the tuba is too slow for this section, and the chimes sound nice. I know I'm in the minority on this (Alheak pointed this out above), but I'm going to insist on giving the priority to the melody.
00:33:064 (2,4,5,7) - Please give these some more space – you're probably right, but I'm so afraid of spacing being an issue. Re did it a little but probably not quite as much as you want
00:56:622 (1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,7) - This is quite messy. Try to make an actual pattern in them – That's mostly due to the low spacing (which I want), but I did move 00:56:622 (1) – up so that the pattern it's going for makes more sense
00:59:567 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - ^ – I think this is fine, albeit (4) and (6) are a little close
01:03:064 (3,4,5) - Make an actual triangle outta this or something – I tried

[Insane]
00:03:432 (1,2,3,4) - Please be more consistent in your spacing – Yeah, 2 → 3 is me derping, but I want 3 → 4 to have higher DS to reflect the pitch change.
00:19:261 - Same as last diff, I'd put a note here instead of the sliderend. I highly recommend you change this
00:39:874 (7) - Try x288y284 – I don't know what you're trying to accomplish with this change. It doesn't make sense to me, so I'll keep it as is
00:44:107 (3) - End looks bad – How would you suggest fixing it?
00:56:070 (5,6,7,8,9) - Try to do something more interesting – Try is the keyword
01:10:610 (4,5) - Too far apart. – I'll test a slightly smaller jump (2.17 → 2.06)

GL! – thanks for the mod!

  1. 00:24:046 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - I think under such an AR, it is not easy to identify which is which. (I will click 6 first and then 5....)
  2. 00:58:095 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - Sudden changing distance kills me. same as above.
  3. 01:17:604 (3,5) - Maybe move (5) left-up to improve this blanket?

For this reason, I moved (6) 4 units to the right and down to give more visibility to (6). Other than that, I'm not sure how to improve this, and I think this should be readable to my target audience. Perhaps increasing the AR would be good, but I'll hold off on that for now
  2. 00:58:095 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - Sudden changing distance kills me. same as above. -- I like the change in distance to reflect the changes in pitch, but it might not be good for the pacing to do that here. I'm going to keep it for now, but thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Nm cause i liked :)
[General]
The Kiai time would be end at the song end too.
[Easy]
Looks perfect
[Normal]
Looks ok* but AR4 is too low. A thing that i can say is make overlaps dont make it easy to read, at normal and easy try dont make any overlap, only in special ocasions. In This case u can up AR to 6.5 to reduce the reading difficult made by the overlaps between 1/2 rithmy. OR remap it without overlaps at 1/2 rithmy.
[Hard]
Change AR to 8 at least
01:25:334 (4) - stack at x79 y250
01:29:199 (2) - why overlap if u dont do no other on the rest?
[Intense]
Looks ranked 8-)
[Insane]
00:26:439 (5,6) - make aligned with the previus flow movingo to x54 y284
01:06:745 (1) - x84 y192
01:07:481 (4) - it could be have move distance because the strong beat
01:08:217 (1) - give a extra spacement or make folowing previus flow, visualy its looking bad
01:08:402 (2) - i like it on x93 y233
01:37:665 (1,2) - the strongests hits are those, then give more spacement it
Good luck to find a BN... :)

Overlapping on 1/2 rhythm is a common practice in Normals, but I do abuse it, especially in some instance. I'll see what I can do about some of them.

01:29:199 (2) - why overlap if u dont do no other on the rest? -- I didn't understand what you said after overlap. In general I don't like overlapping, but I think this flow is worth it, especially since a half overlap on (1)'s midpoint isn't that bad an overlap.
[Intense]
Looks ranked 8-) -- nice
[Insane]
00:26:439 (5,6) - make aligned with the previus flow movingo to x54 y284 -- fixed
01:06:745 (1) - x84 y192 -- The current position is where the circle would be if I continued doing the zig-zag slider pattern. What's your reasoning behind changing it?
01:07:481 (4) - it could be have move distance because the strong beat -- the spacing is kind of big already, and it's not a downbeat, so I think the spacing is appropriate. I'll keep an eye on it while I continue testing though
01:08:217 (1) - give a extra spacement or make folowing previus flow, visualy its looking bad -- the small angle is to start the next pattern strong since (1) is a downbeat, and I like it as
01:08:402 (2) - i like it on x93 y233 -- I like it the way I have it
01:37:665 (1,2) - the strongests hits are those, then give more spacement it -- 01:36:193 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - is the climax and 01:37:665 (1,2) - is the resolution. So I disagree with some of what you say, but I think the spacing could be a little bit bigger, so I did Ctrl + Shift + S by 1.05
Good luck to find a BN... :)
Thanks for the mod, I appreciate it!

  3. 00:51:101 (3) - Move circle into jump triangle -- I've gotten complaints about this, but triangle flow is not the intention. I want back and forth flow, so I moved (3) closer to (1)
  4. 01:01:960 (7) - NC -- see above
  5. 01:07:481 (4) - Blanket if u want -- I could see that working, but linear sets up the next stream better.
  6. 01:07:849 (5,6,7,8,1) - Style stream doesn't look nice or u can fix it like curve or straight stream to look better -- I'm not doing this for style. In terms of style, you're right, a smooth stream looks better, but the angle into (1) serves the purpose of starting a back and forth/angled flow, which better represents the start of a new rhythm than if I were to have a smooth stream.


Oh my god. I like this song -- glad I could share it with you :) . Thanks for the mod!

Hey! M4M request in-game.
Well, here goes nothing.

General:
  1. All clear!
Easy:
  1. 00:03:800 (2,4) - Tbh, I personally don't like these kind of placements. Why not move 00:04:904 (4) - here X: 132 Y: 312. It looks better and also makes a nice blanket with (2) and (3).
  2. 00:13:923 (3,4) - This isn't allowed in Easy diffs! Beginners will get too confused and is too hard to play. (It's only allowed in a Normal diff) Why not just lengthen (3) where (4) ends. It is very easier to play.
  3. 00:15:211 (1) - Just for fun, why not Ctrl+> until it looks like this slider: http://puu.sh/lTNsi/0839f02b70.jpg. Imo, it looks better and it also improves the flow.
  4. 00:16:867 (3) - Same here. Please follow my advise above. I think it's really unrankable since a BN pointed it out in one of my Easy diff.
  5. 00:18:156 (1,2) - Mm. . imo, the placement can be improved. Why not Ctrl+< (2) so that you can have a nice blanket with (1). It seems neater to meand also plays nicely.
  6. 00:20:365 (3,2) - I think it will be better if you just move (3) here X: 360 Y: 352 so that it avoids the overlap with (2). (Doesn't really matter if you don't fix it. I just like to have things in easier diffs look neat.)
  7. 00:31:592 (4) - This slider seems out of place since there is no other sliders that look like that. . and it also looks a little nazi. Why not just turn it into a nice curved slider. . It's easy to fix and no one will have a problem with it.
  8. 00:43:371 (4) - Uhm, I think it will be better if you blanket these two notes 00:42:819 (3,4) - . (I mean, don't forget about the blankets!)
  9. 00:50:549 (1,2) - Stack them better please.
  10. 00:54:966 (3,4) - I think it will improve the rhythm if you switch these two notes. If you can hear the the music is higher. . so a slider will fit better imo.
  11. 01:10:242 (3) - Mm, this is too hard for newbies. I suggest you end (3) tail here: 01:10:794 - . Remove the note of course.
  12. 01:13:187 (3) - Same here. Just follow my suggestion above.
  13. 01:22:021 (3) - ^
  14. 01:29:567 (2,5) - This blanket can be improved. Why not just copy and paste them so that they look alike.
  15. 01:37:665 (1) - Okay. . instead of doing that. . Why not remove this slider here: 01:36:929 (5) - and then add a note there. Then just add a slider here: 01:37:849 (1) - which ends here: 01:37:849 - . It plays way easier for beginners. (Remember! Easy diffs must be easy enough for newbies to play. Please remember that in your future maps.
  16. Anyways, this maps looks pretty good!
Normal:
  1. 00:29:935 (1,2) - I really don't like that overlap. It looks pretty nazi to me. Please try to avoid these.
  2. 00:29:935 (1,3) - Same here. ^
  3. 00:32:880 (1,3) - I highly suggest you stack them instead. It looks much neater.
  4. 00:41:714 (1,2,3) - Mmm. . this looks really like old mapping style. Why not do something like this: http://puu.sh/lTOKv/da8a877f3a.jpg. It looks much better to me.
  5. 00:46:684 (6,1) - Why not stack?
  6. Okay, the big problem I had with this diff is that the placements are really and I mean really nazi. I don't really like it when they are over each other for no reason. . Please. . avoid these useless overlapping at all time!

I guess that is all from me.
Good luck with this mapset of yours~! :)
Yauxo
Why arent you using soft for the 00:56:622 (1) - part? o:

[Insane]
■ 00:10:610 (10,11,1) - Is this stack intentionally derpy?
■ 00:13:923 (2) - Nazistuffs; Stack this one properly
■ 00:33:064 (2,3,4) - Compared with patterns like 00:27:175 (2,3,4) - or 00:36:009 (2,3,4) - , this one feels really slow. You might want to space them further apart
■ 00:42:819 (3) - More Nazistuffs; the end isnt stacked properly
■ 00:50:733 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - You didnt map anything overlapping like this previously, I think it'd be better if you kept it that way (you know, consistency shits)
■ 00:57:359 (5,6) - How about changing this to an expanding pattern? ~1~ (You might want to adjust the following patterns in a similar style then)
■ 01:01:040 (2,3,4,5,6) - Even though I suggested expanding patterns, I feel like this spacing is too much for a calm part like this. You might want to tone that down (maybe +0.10 DS each pattern, instead of around +0.20 DS (+ the boost at the end)

■ The ending seems kind of questionable in terms of sudden spike in difficulty, but the BNs will handle that, I guess
[Intense]
■ 00:03:432 (1,2,3,4) - I think it'd be neat if this combo had the same <visual> spacing for all of its objects
■ 00:15:580 (3,4) - ýou could equalize the spacing here and maybe on 00:17:235 (3,4) - too
■ 00:38:770 (1,2,3,4) - Having a straight like of speeding up for a jump and slowing down for a normal spaced object is kind of mean. It's pretty easy to overshoot or undershoot some of the circles if your cursor control isnt that good yet. You might want to add some directional change here

■ Same end-thing here
[Hard]
■ 00:20:365 (2,3) - might want to space this just a little bit forther away for aesthetic purposes
■ 00:32:512 (4) - curve this one less in an attempt to make it look like a blanket thing?
[Easy]
■ 01:19:997 (1,2) - Not too sure if this is readable for new players. I dont think that overlaps like these happen too often in easy diffs, so they might think that 2 is somehow connected to 1 and does a curv- oh wait it doesnt, shit, what do I do what do I do - and they break. Might want to un-overlap to be save

Somewhat short, but most of the diffs stay true to their style and dont have too many major problems. Good Luck!

  6. 00:20:365 (3,2) - I think it will be better if you just move (3) here X: 360 Y: 352 so that it avoids the overlap with (2). (Doesn't really matter if you don't fix it. I just like to have things in easier diffs look neat.) – the earlier note has faded well before the other shows up, so I'm okay with how it is
  7. 00:31:592 (4) - This slider seems out of place since there is no other sliders that look like that. . and it also looks a little nazi. Why not just turn it into a nice curved slider. . It's easy to fix and no one will have a problem with it. – I like using a wave slider, but it's too straight right now, so I'll give it a little more curve
  8. 00:43:371 (4) - Uhm, I think it will be better if you blanket these two notes 00:42:819 (3,4) - . (I mean, don't forget about the blankets!) – That would make (4) and (2) overlap awkwardly. Right now they overlap in a slightly reasonable way and I think it plays fine
  9. 00:50:549 (1,2) - Stack them better please. – I stacked the right one, but the left one has faded well before any stacking issue can even arise.
  10. 00:54:966 (3,4) - I think it will improve the rhythm if you switch these two notes. If you can hear the the music is higher. . so a slider will fit better imo. – so ctrl + g these notes, right? hmm interesting. I think both rhythms have their pros and cons. I'm not entirely sure about this one, but I think I'll try it.
  11. 01:10:242 (3) - Mm, this is too hard for newbies. I suggest you end (3) tail here: 01:10:794 - . Remove the note of course. – I'm not sure it is. I'll keep for now, but I'll get a second opinion.
  12. 01:13:187 (3) - Same here. Just follow my suggestion above.
  13. 01:22:021 (3) - ^
  14. 01:29:567 (2,5) - This blanket can be improved. Why not just copy and paste them so that they look alike. – These are copy pasted, and that's why they're not blanketed. (5) needs to have less curvature than (2) in order to be blanketed, but that looks odd to some people. Since it's a toss up, I'll go with the lazier option and keep as is.
  15. 01:37:665 (1) - Okay. . instead of doing that. . Why not remove this slider here: 01:36:929 (5) - and then add a note there. Then just add a slider here: 01:37:849 (1) - which ends here: 01:37:849 - . It plays way easier for beginners. (Remember! Easy diffs must be easy enough for newbies to play. Please remember that in your future maps. – I think you're pattern is harder because now you have four clickable objects at 01:36:193 (3) – instead of only three, and the ½ slider isn't hard when nothing comes after it. I also prefer the rhythm I have more. However, I am going to be more wary about ½ rhythm in Easy's in the future thanks to this mod.
  16. Anyways, this maps looks pretty good! – thank you! :)
Normal:
  1. 00:29:935 (1,2) - I really don't like that overlap. It looks pretty nazi to me. Please try to avoid these. – I like the pattern, so I'll keep it.
  2. 00:29:935 (1,3) - Same here. ^
  3. 00:32:880 (1,3) - I highly suggest you stack them instead. It looks much neater. – Stacking doesn't work well with the reverse slider imo, so instead of going for a triangle, I spaced them out so that it's easier to read
  4. 00:41:714 (1,2,3) - Mmm. . this looks really like old mapping style. Why not do something like this: http://puu.sh/lTOKv/da8a877f3a.jpg. It looks much better to me. – flow like that is too common for me, like at 00:53:862 (2,3,4) - . I like trying interesting flows and designs, and I like this one.
  5. 00:46:684 (6,1) - Why not stack? – I'm confused, these are already stack
  6. Okay, the big problem I had with this diff is that the placements are really and I mean really nazi. I don't really like it when they are over each other for no reason. . Please. . avoid these useless overlapping at all time! – My biggest concern of the map is the stacks like at 00:22:757 (5,6,7) – might be a bit tricky. If this is part of what you were talking about, then I would love to hear what you would do to fix it since I don't have any good ideas. If you're talking about 00:29:935 (1,2) -, then I disagree

I guess that is all from me.
Good luck with this mapset of yours~! :) thanks a bunch!

[Insane]
■ 00:10:610 (10,11,1) - Is this stack intentionally derpy? – hopefully fixed
■ 00:13:923 (2) - Nazistuffs; Stack this one properly – fixed
■ 00:33:064 (2,3,4) - Compared with patterns like 00:27:175 (2,3,4) - or 00:36:009 (2,3,4) - , this one feels really slow. You might want to space them further apart – the idea is to be like 00:21:285 (2,3,4) – by having lowered intensity, but I think you're right that it's a little too low. Spaced it out a bit further but still relatively small. I think if someone else brings it up though I might end up changing it.
■ 00:42:819 (3) - More Nazistuffs; the end isnt stacked properly – peppy please make nicer editor
■ 00:50:733 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - You didnt map anything overlapping like this previously, I think it'd be better if you kept it that way (you know, consistency shits) – I think if there is a good reason to be inconsistent, it's okay. The reason is that I want back and forth flow, but I don't like lowered visibility of objects when you stack them. I think this looks and plays fine.
■ 00:57:359 (5,6) - How about changing this to an expanding pattern? ~1~ (You might want to adjust the following patterns in a similar style then) – it's nice and I think you could make it work, but I don't want to give much emphasis on the pitch change at 00:57:175 (4) – since I want this section to feel as calm as possible, and I had trouble getting the patterns/spacing to work for me.
■ 01:01:040 (2,3,4,5,6) - Even though I suggested expanding patterns, I feel like this spacing is too much for a calm part like this. You might want to tone that down (maybe +0.10 DS each pattern, instead of around +0.20 DS (+ the boost at the end) – I am going to keep the idea of having a boost at the end, since I feel linear growth of intensity does not feel as good as exponential growth of intensity for building up the pattern like this. I tried scaling the last combo down by .9, but that felt too weak to me. I realize I'm a player that is comfortable with this kind of spacing and my target audience might not be, but for now I'll keep it and probably scale it down by .95 or .9 when someone else brings this up.

■ The ending seems kind of questionable in terms of sudden spike in difficulty, but the BNs will handle that, I guess – I'm very open to change about the execution of this (i.e how much I increase the spacing), but I think the idea of significantly increasing the DS to emphasize the climax is sound. It'd be nice to have a number from you as to what the DS should be so I have a little more of an idea what the community thinks.
[Intense]
■ 00:03:432 (1,2,3,4) - I think it'd be neat if this combo had the same <visual> spacing for all of its objects – a picture would be really nice because I'm not the best at design issues like that. It's also hard to keep the flow/spacing the way I want it if I try say http://puu.sh/lU9I9/5d24d2c33a.jpg, or http://puu.sh/lU9KK/b6107a0b56.jpg. There's also an argument that the increased pitch at 00:04:168 (3) – justifies the change in visual spacing. If you show me a design that keeps the general flow/spacing the way I have it, I will very likely change it, but for now I'll keep.
■ 00:15:580 (3,4) - ýou could equalize the spacing here and maybe on 00:17:235 (3,4) – too – What is the intention behind this? I'm trying to emphasize these notes in the music due to their higher pitch. Is there something wrong with that or the way I did it? Should I also be changing the spacing at 00:12:267 (1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4) - ? Or is is that you want to improve the design at 00:15:580 (3,4) – by going along the hexagonal path? If it is, then I disagree, since I don't think the pattern looks intrinsically bad and flow takes more priority in my books.
■ 00:38:770 (1,2,3,4) - Having a straight like of speeding up for a jump and slowing down for a normal spaced object is kind of mean. It's pretty easy to overshoot or undershoot some of the circles if your cursor control isnt that good yet. You might want to add some directional change here – interesting, I hadn't thought about it that way. Ctrl+H'd this, and hopefully that angle will fix what you mentioned.

■ Same end-thing here
[Hard]
■ 00:20:365 (2,3) - might want to space this just a little bit forther away for aesthetic purposes – I thought I did, but yeah I could go a little further.
■ 00:32:512 (4) - curve this one less in an attempt to make it look like a blanket thing? – this is pretty subjective. Some people like the fact that 3,4 have the same curvature and prefer it this way. I think both ways look fine, and this issue doesn't affect rankability, so I'll be lazy and keep this.
[Easy]
■ 01:19:997 (1,2) - Not too sure if this is readable for new players. I dont think that overlaps like these happen too often in easy diffs, so they might think that 2 is somehow connected to 1 and does a curv- oh wait it doesnt, shit, what do I do what do I do - and they break. Might want to un-overlap to be save – Darn it easy players, get better so I can make more interesting patterns for you XD

Somewhat short, but most of the diffs stay true to their style and dont have too many major problems. Good Luck! - Yay! You brought up a lot of cool things to think about. Thank you!
Yauxo
About the visual spaced thing, here's what I mean.



In the picture we have 4 basic Sliders. 1-2-3 being spaced equally (~1.3DS in this case) and 4 being spaced further apart (~2.1DS). Even though it has an increase of 0.8DS, it doesnt really feel or look like it'd be that much more, as it's still visually close to the other related objects. It's more of a feel-good and aesthetics thing than something you'd definitely have to do. (You could also add that players dont have to follow 3 all the way to its tail, but that's another story)

Ctrl+g'ing 3 would result in (about) equal spacing throughout the combo. You can take http://puu.sh/lV0M1/aa840db886.jpg as reference.

For your case; You could ctrl+j 00:03:800 (2) - and move it to 80/296

Hey, thanks for following up on the mod response. It's really nice to see you put in a little extra work to help me out.

I feel like I've run into this concept before, but the picture and your explanation makes it a lot clearer on how I can execute that idea in maps. I might actually refer to this picture when making future maps.

With that said, the exact suggestion makes the actual spacing a little too far for me, but I did do Ctrl _ J and rotated (1) and (2) to open them up: http://puu.sh/lVeC5/0e59e9a80c.jpg . While not perfectly equally spaced, the pattern gets across that idea nicer than before, and I still think the increased visual spacing works with the higher pitch argument from above.

  1. Metadata issue. The romanized title is wrong, it should be Sorairo concerto. (reference:https://remywiki.com/Sorairo_concerto) -- It seems the only change is to not capitalize the 'c' in "Concerto." This is a silly change. Titles of songs should have all major words capitalized, and to do otherwise is to mistranslate the original title.
  2. The name of the attender who makes the guest diff have to be shown in the Tags, make sure you write the gder's name in tags. -- All difficulties are made by me and my name is under creator.

I suggest you use a.k.a's Light Insane or a.k.a's Hyper -- Light Insane is a silly name. Intense starts with an 'I' to match the Red icon and is less syllables. I'd like to try to push this idea into the community.

title should be "Sorairo concerto", yes. it is not incorrect if the artist itself has stated this to be the translated title.
i would have used soft hitsound with a light snare drum hitsound on beats 2/4 here, i'm aware it's not in the song but it would be a very nice addition since as it is you just have whistle/bell hitsounds. it is not necessary to change this, just keep in mind for future maps.

[Easy]
00:19:261 (2) - imo, c/p from 00:18:156 (1) would make more sense: http://puu.sh/lXvnp/3282d58626.jpg
01:03:800 (4) - flow here could be improved imo. what do you think of this... http://puu.sh/lXvhq/9cbb9d89b5.jpg ?
01:15:579 (4) - ^ http://puu.sh/lXvj9/30b0a91c08.jpg
01:21:101 (2) - c/p from 01:19:997 (1) ? http://puu.sh/lXvl9/1293f2f650.jpg

[Normal]
00:22:757 (5,6,7) - i would advise against using 3-stack in Normal diff. it's kind of boring to play, and in the case of a Normal diff, if you have that many notes in a row, it's usually easier for beginner to hit a less complicated rhythm. imo, either space it out or use a kind of rhythm more similar to this: http://puu.sh/lXvLv/c08a3f44cc.jpg
00:25:702 (5,6,7) - ^. i will not point out all of these.
note, i would say 00:28:647 (5,6,7) is OK bc it's more interesting than just basic stack, so it's probably better to leave it.
00:43:371 (4) - for "combined curve" slider, imo aesthetic is better if curve is more defined. example https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142278

[Hard]
00:32:512 (4) - could easily make this blanket better: http://puu.sh/lXvwz/f58f43df56.jpg
00:37:481 (2,3,4) - this jump doesn't seem to fit imo, it's the only time in this section you make a jump like this. why not just use same rhythm as before?
01:30:303 (1,2,3,4,5) - imo this doesn't really fit the "rising" atmosphere ur building in the song... u could easily do sth like this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142265 or any number of similar pattern.

[Intense]
00:13:371 (6,1) - what do you think about using a 1/1 slider here instead? fits the song way better imo.
00:15:764 (4) - this slider doesn't flow well with the previous notes, since it's curved differently. better would be sth more like this... http://puu.sh/lXxbv/6277e35098.jpg don't forget fix spacing after
00:21:285 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - i know it's for pattern, but it is not good to make notes closer than base DS (1.2x). this kind of pattern is usually done by spacing the "close" notes at the regular distance, to keep the structure of the map consistent.
00:24:230 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - ^ i will not point out all of these.
00:26:070 (4,5,6) - spacing error?
00:29:567 (6) - now, for this one, imo just a hitcircle would be better to make the rhythm starting from 00:29:935 to be more distinct.
00:34:905 (4,5,6) - i really think you could make some more variable rhythm here. consistency is good, but you've used the same rhythm in the map for this every single time. even sth like this... http://puu.sh/lXxpj/d33ab60989.jpg to create some variance in the map would be good (in this case you could also make a jump on (5)). there are several ways to fix this, but this kind of thing applies to every one of these rhythms (even the ones before if you wish) so do sth suitable for yourself.
00:37:113 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - this, for example, was much more interesting.
00:41:346 (6) - same as 00:29:567 (6) .
00:47:052 (5,6,7) - again, i don't think 3-stack is suitable here. for an Insane diff, you can make some more interesting pattern than a long stack. using some different rhythm, again, could give you some better idea for this part and make the map more interesting, for example... http://puu.sh/lXxzX/f1018fd049.jpg .
00:56:070 (5,6,7,8,9) - again, long stack is kinda boring... what do you think about a kickslider here? http://puu.sh/lXxFx/bd946fe999.jpg would be a good way to transition to the slow part, imo.
01:03:248 (4,5) - spacing error?
01:25:886 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - i'm really meh on this. i get that you want to make some jumps here to match with the song but the placement feels kind of random. if you're going to do sth like this, i would recommend this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142483 ... would flow so much better since it fits into one pattern.
01:27:359 (1) - now, when you switch pattern here, a more intuitive way to do this would be to transition using some slider, or any kind of different rhythm; the switch in rhythm would make the pattern change more noticeable than just placing the hitcircles differently. i think this... http://puu.sh/lXyJ6/decde2fcd0.jpg would not only be intuitive, but also more sense pattern-wise (circles -> sliders -> circles) and consistent with 01:31:776 .
01:31:776 (1,2,3,4) - again, i can't comprehend the shape behind this. the song has a "rising" atmosphere here, and "free" placement doesn't fit very well - better to keep a well-defined structure to fit the tenseness. imo, sth like this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142449 would be perfect for this part.
01:34:721 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1,2) - this is so much better and is very intuitive to play since the arrangement of the notes is clear.
01:37:665 (1,2) - what do you think about this placement... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142505 ?

imo, the map needs some work, structurally... seems all notes are placed at a different spacing without regard to DS. jumps are fine, but when all the notes are like this, it makes the map very unintuitive bc there's no structure or consistency anywhere. it seems you use 1.3x as base DS starting from 00:00:856 - here. then, at 00:06:377 (1) - you use anywhere from 1.4x ~ 1.5x which is fine enough, but then at 00:18:156 (1) is 1.2x which is very wrong since it doesn't seem have any reason behind it. 00:22:389 (1,2,3,4) is also 1.2x, it should be 1.4x like the rest. it seems this continue through the rest of the map, would be so much more intuitive if it was unified (using the same or a more similar one for everything).
what i said in Intense about rhythm/pattern also applies here, it would be much more interesting to make some more variable rhythm, it is possible even if song sounds the same.
i do not want to force my style on the map, so instead i'll just say if you accepted most things on Intense, you should really look through here to see sth suitable for yourself.

i hope this was useful, you can rank this if you work hard enough and look into the issues on Intense/Insane i think.
good luck ~

Hey I've been busy traveling because of holidays and getting used to the new set up, so that's why this took a little while.

[General]
title should be "Sorairo concerto", yes. it is not incorrect if the artist itself has stated this to be the translated title.I will direct my salt towards the artist then
i would have used soft hitsound with a light snare drum hitsound on beats 2/4 here, i'm aware it's not in the song but it would be a very nice addition since as it is you just have whistle/bell hitsounds. it is not necessary to change this, just keep in mind for future maps. – I didn't think of it since it's not in the song

[Easy]
00:19:261 (2) - imo, c/p from 00:18:156 (1) would make more sense: http://puu.sh/lXvnp/3282d58626.jpgI'm more partial to linear flows like this
01:03:800 (4) - flow here could be improved imo. what do you think of this... http://puu.sh/lXvhq/9cbb9d89b5.jpg ? – kept the linear slider but made flow smoother
01:15:579 (4) - ^ http://puu.sh/lXvj9/30b0a91c08.jpg I think it's fine
01:21:101 (2) - c/p from 01:19:997 (1) ? http://puu.sh/lXvl9/1293f2f650.jpg I'm fine with linear stuff

[Normal]
00:22:757 (5,6,7) - i would advise against using 3-stack in Normal diff. it's kind of boring to play, and in the case of a Normal diff, if you have that many notes in a row, it's usually easier for beginner to hit a less complicated rhythm. imo, either space it out or use a kind of rhythm more similar to this: http://puu.sh/lXvLv/c08a3f44cc.jpgI agree that this is problematic and would like to change it, but I don't like the suggested rhythm change for how it emphasizes the notes. I tried a ½ slider for at (5) and that seems fine, but I can't get it to flow with the patterns I have. I'm gonna leave it for now and try to remap some of these later.
00:25:702 (5,6,7) - ^. i will not point out all of these.
note, i would say 00:28:647 (5,6,7) is OK bc it's more interesting than just basic stack, so it's probably better to leave it.
00:43:371 (4) - for "combined curve" slider, imo aesthetic is better if curve is more defined. example https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142278 It's too curvy for me, I kinda like what I have

[Hard]
00:32:512 (4) - could easily make this blanket better: http://puu.sh/lXvwz/f58f43df56.jpgthe change in curvature might look worse to others, so I think this isn't a big deal either way.
00:37:481 (2,3,4) - this jump doesn't seem to fit imo, it's the only time in this section you make a jump like this. why not just use same rhythm as before? – the idea is to go with the change in pitch, but it might be a bad idea in this difficulty. I'll probably change it if I get more complaints
01:30:303 (1,2,3,4,5) - imo this doesn't really fit the "rising" atmosphere ur building in the song... u could easily do sth like this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142265 or any number of similar pattern. – The lowered pitch makes me interpret that it's more “falling” and so the stacks are trying to slow the map down with the music.

[Intense]
00:13:371 (6,1) - what do you think about using a 1/1 slider here instead? fits the song way better imo. – I like this, but not in Insane
00:15:764 (4) - this slider doesn't flow well with the previous notes, since it's curved differently. better would be sth more like this... http://puu.sh/lXxbv/6277e35098.jpg don't forget fix spacing after – I think it looks/feels fine
00:21:285 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - i know it's for pattern, but it is not good to make notes closer than base DS (1.2x). this kind of pattern is usually done by spacing the "close" notes at the regular distance, to keep the structure of the map consistent. – the base DS changes here to go with the change in intensity between sections of the song
00:24:230 (2,3,4,5,6,7) - ^ i will not point out all of these.
00:26:070 (4,5,6) - spacing error? – (see Insane for spacing discussion)
00:29:567 (6) - now, for this one, imo just a hitcircle would be better to make the rhythm starting from 00:29:935 to be more distinct. – okay, but not for Insane
00:34:905 (4,5,6) - i really think you could make some more variable rhythm here. consistency is good, but you've used the same rhythm in the map for this every single time. even sth like this... http://puu.sh/lXxpj/d33ab60989.jpg to create some variance in the map would be good (in this case you could also make a jump on (5)). there are several ways to fix this, but this kind of thing applies to every one of these rhythms (even the ones before if you wish) so do sth suitable for yourself. – from a global perspective I agree, but any rhythm change would make any individual measure feel odd to me. I'm okay with the repetitive rhythm if I can repel some of the monotony with flow changes or by sparsely going with changes in the music like below.
00:37:113 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - this, for example, was much more interesting.
00:41:346 (6) - same as 00:29:567 (6) .
00:47:052 (5,6,7) - again, i don't think 3-stack is suitable here. for an Insane diff, you can make some more interesting pattern than a long stack. using some different rhythm, again, could give you some better idea for this part and make the map more interesting, for example... http://puu.sh/lXxzX/f1018fd049.jpg . – I don't like changing the rhythm. How would you space this as is? The intention is for this to be a rest, so I tried a spacing of .5x using triangle patterns, and it didn't feel nice. I don't think this part of the song needs to feel interesting
00:56:070 (5,6,7,8,9) - again, long stack is kinda boring... what do you think about a kickslider here? http://puu.sh/lXxFx/bd946fe999.jpg would be a good way to transition to the slow part, imo. – I prefer the 5-note stream, but I gave it a curve
01:03:248 (4,5) - spacing error?
01:25:886 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - i'm really meh on this. i get that you want to make some jumps here to match with the song but the placement feels kind of random. if you're going to do sth like this, i would recommend this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142483 ... would flow so much better since it fits into one pattern. – After testing, the current flow transitions into the next flow better
01:27:359 (1) - now, when you switch pattern here, a more intuitive way to do this would be to transition using some slider, or any kind of different rhythm; the switch in rhythm would make the pattern change more noticeable than just placing the hitcircles differently. i think this... http://puu.sh/lXyJ6/decde2fcd0.jpg would not only be intuitive, but also more sense pattern-wise (circles -> sliders -> circles) and consistent with 01:31:776 . – While I agree with the sentiment behind the rhythm change, the use of sliders here lowers the overall intensity of this section beyond what I'd like, and I prefer the way I have it now.
01:31:776 (1,2,3,4) - again, i can't comprehend the shape behind this. the song has a "rising" atmosphere here, and "free" placement doesn't fit very well - better to keep a well-defined structure to fit the tenseness. imo, sth like this... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142449 would be perfect for this part.-- rotated (3) 10 degrees. The flow from 1 --> 2 is there because of the change in pitch, but then 2,3,4 is kind of what you're suggesting, but executed a little poorly. This rotation helps get that across.
01:34:721 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1,2) - this is so much better and is very intuitive to play since the arrangement of the notes is clear.
01:37:665 (1,2) - what do you think about this placement... https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/4142505 ? – The flow is good but the spacing is too much, so I did a smaller version of it.

I spaced it the way I spaced it to go with changes in pitch. So 00:18:156 (1) is very low in pitch, so it gets low spacing. The places where it jumps are the places where the measure hits high notes. There's also the idea of pacing throughout the map, in that the kiai section and early section are more intense sections of the song due to the more dramatic instruments playing, so less intense sections like the one in 00:22:389 (1,2,3,4) should feel less intense. To do this, I changed the base DS.

what i said in Intense about rhythm/pattern also applies here, it would be much more interesting to make some more variable rhythm, it is possible even if song sounds the same.
i do not want to force my style on the map, so instead i'll just say if you accepted most things on Intense, you should really look through here to see sth suitable for yourself.

Thanks for the mod! You made me think about a lot of things and had some very nice suggestions.
