"Every slider must have a clear and visible path to follow from start to end. Sliders which overlap themselves in a way that makes any section unreadable or ambiguous (including "burai sliders") cannot be used. This is so that no slider has an appearance that is confusing or impossible for the player to read. Additionally, the slider borders must never be covered up from the slider being packed in too tightly. However, sliders that cross over themselves are fine as long as the borders are clearly visible." ?
I don't really think low note density (as written in your answer to the mod mentioning this) is a valid reason to have this. Players playing this first time are almost guaranteed to fail or sliderbreak or best case "100" it. Not being able to "sight-read" a map is pretty discouraging for a player and shouldn't really be a thing. By sight-reading I really mean "reading". It's just not enjoyable that way. Another for this not to be acceptable is that this is the only time in the map you use those cheeky overlaps. If players are used to playing this they might expect it. But as you didn't do it before and the fact that there is a pause leading into it is just no acceptable in my opinion. Tricky patterns =/= unreadable patterns.
Not that my opinion would change anything anyways lo
