I just can't stream

Koma-
Hi guys.

I've been playing osu since a long long time, I just came back from a long pause, and I suddenly got a lot (HELL LOT) better. In like 2 weeks, I made it through 3 et 4 stars and I could finally end some 5 stars (Yeah, I'm bad, but that's better than nothing ^^).

And right now, I'm stuck really REALLY hard because of the streams. I've got a mechanical keyboard with mx black switches, and I like it, but I feel that my fingers are just way too slow to stream at this level, and I sometimes fail on 4* streams.

I can't stream at 130 BPM properly (which is really bad) and I don't know what to do since it's been like 1 month I didn't do any progress at all, which kinda ruins the fun for me.

If you guys have any advice on what to do, which map to train and that could actually help me, I'd be glad to take it.

Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language at all, and thank you.

P.S : Oh, I forgot. I can't actually do EZPZ maps since I won't be focused at all on FCing this or just aim, so I'll basicaly end up failing a thing I could 100% DT HR easily.

Hello there.

Start by playing this map
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/13019

Until u can get a good accuracy on this. Force yourself to stream only. Don't single tap.

Then you can move onto
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/34468

The basic idea here is to feel the rhythm with your fingers and tap accordingly.

Since I am struggling with the same thing as you I hope I was of some help.

Just play more stream maps. Something will click in and it'll be fine

I watched a lot of "how to stream" videos. In the end, 2 tips really stuck with me: 1) if you can do a triplet, you can stream too, just extend the triplet with the same consistent rhythm and 2) have a place for your arm to lean on for stamina.

Another thing that really helped me was to practice on stacks rather than spaced streams and shorter streams are a good place to start (like 5 note streams).

Alright, I'll take note of everything here !

I actually can do a 7/9 notes stream as long as it's not really fast. Once it exceeds 12/15 notes, my stamina just run from 90% to 0 in 0.5 s. It just bored me quite a lot. I'll try to put something under my arm to let it rest a bit.

If there's any other tip, I'll take it :3

I see everyone saying here and on other posts "play a lot of stream maps" etc. It doesn't mean only play stream maps constantly, both for your own entertainment and health. I did that, got carpal tunnel. (I assure you, you don't want that, it's almost gone now :D) Just keep that in mind.

I'm actually having a hard time on streams too! I play with a laptop and the keys are just a pain in the a**! I can only do like max 15 notes before choking real bad. It's annoying because many times I've nearly FC'd a semi-long beatmap and then my fingers just freeze up on a stream because there's no resistance (struggling to find the real synonym for it). What I mean is I have to use the same strength to pull my fingers up as I do pushing down, which isn't a problem with mechanical keyboards.
Hopefully you understand what I mean!

I'd like to know if there's an experienced laptop player who has had the same problem!

Uh, what if I can't alternate ? I've learned osu single tapping since the beggining, and I can't even follow a 3* song fully alternating. I can only alternate during fast jumps, and that's all. When there's nothing special, like slow sliders or stuff, I always end up losing control when I alternate, but when things get interesting, aka fast jumps/sliders, I alternate so easily, idk '-'

Just play and try out different postures and keys which to use and streaming eventually gets easier. I know exactly your problem as I've suffered from it long time mainly because my table is too tall for the pose I was used to.

You don't actually have to alternate the whole map to be able to stream decently.

Dunno why people expect to stream instantly while it require a lot of practice in controlling fingers and aiming stream. Just play the fuckin game and it will come while you play. Searching magical ways of improving doesnt help, same as sitting in forum and crying.

Download tons of maps on your skill level and play them all.

Personaly i started streaming consistently 140-160 bpm around 2kpp, 180-190 bpm now after buying mechanical keyboard. How i done it? - Playing more insteed of posting.

Tbh I think it can be usefull to go to the forums once in a while if you have trouble with a certain aspect of the game. I always get a ton of usefull tips whenever I ask somethig. Just playing the game doesn't always work if you want to improve in a certain aspect of the game, atm I can't stream at all (yes 2.8k pp player who cant stream at all) and I'm pretty sure that if I just kept playing the game like I did till now that in another 23k plays I would still not be able to stream.

Just by passing GnR first page i noticed more than 1 already existing topic about "i can't stream", by using search engine i found BILIONS of topics like that. Maybe with account peppy should consider creating for everyone separated personal topic named "i can't stream" right away?

It's already most annoying spam topic in GnR, literaly SPAM, SPAM SPAM, worse than any shitposting if each page of this subforum contain few topics named the same.

Learn to use internet, k?

Play more and use brain while doing this.

@Edit: to not lie, these are already existing topics in FIRST FREAKING PAGE:
t/392243
t/392521
t/392515
t/393511
All 4 about the same --- "i can't stream, how to do this". This one is 5th.

// Lock & trash pls.

And how many of these topics contain usefull information lmao. Not everyone has the same problem when they say I can't stream you know. Yes I made a topic with a question that has been asked a thousand times before, but it's not like I didn't go through some other can't stream topics before I posted. Chainpullz gave me an amazing map list to practise with, I feel like all these maps are perfect for me unlike some other lists/spreadsheets I took from older topics. If you dont like these topics just ignore them...

Something I realised recently is that people may not actually be able to stream due to being weak.

I'm serious, it may stem from stamina issues; you can't stream because you get tired to easily which may cause your fingers to slow-down involuntarily because you're muscles are crying.

An alternative approach OP could be to play longer maps (not necessarily streamy maps either), keep on going until you can't. You'll also improve in other areas as well.

I'm pretty sure that's bs, you just keep increasing your stamina the more you play.

@Op By saying I can't stream 130 bpm do u mean u can't stream anything starting at 130 bpm or just low bpm. I can stream 185-200 bpm up to 220 bpm if I spam my way through the streams, but fail on 100-140 bpm maps. And maybe you should try some maps from ranefire's spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... li=1#gid=0.
