Played for 2 years and 1 month (25 months), rank #140 now. I had no rhythm game experience prior to osu!mania.

(I guess I'm one of those people that improve pretty fast :p)

played for 10 years+ on and off, one thing that i've learnt is that the first years of VSRG before i played osu! helped me to play until 2* maps (as in doing S ranks), it really depends on what kind of maps you get exposed to anyways.

Playing for long periods of time of course helps you improve but improving significantly has to take into account what maps you play.

Taking 5* maps as a rough gauge (well, star rating isn't all that accurate anyways but it is more relevant in this context), you'll probably reach that stage of S-ing most of them after 2.5 years if we consider you play maps that are challenging and fresh at the same time (enough to help you improve),
this also a rough gauge,
everything is a rough gauge,
enjoy pls game

ps: try to get into the multiplayer lobbies that are suited for your level+key, they get you exposed to more maps, try to find lobbies which are playing non-ranked maps since they are less popular and there should be a strong reason on why they chose these over ranked maps ya.

playstation: converts are really useful on the higher-end of the skill spectrum, you will find that you will run out of maps to play even though you consistently find lobbies (high-level lobbies are hard to find), so here's a link to converts if you'd like: t/399593

yea pretty much some tips on how to increase your Skill Gain/s

Have you been playing 7k from the start?
I began playing 7k sometime around 2007 with o2jam. My 4k experience goes back to stepmania, which I played until I found o2jam. I quit playing stepmania a few months into o2jam because I found it too hard to keep my skill in both games. Then I flat out refused to play 4k for probably a year and a half after osu!mania was released as well, so that time was not split between 4k and 7k at all.

been playing osu!mania for around 1 year, been hovering around rank ~1600-1700 for a few months now. i mostly play 4-key because i started with stepmania a few months before o!m.

i've been practicing 7k on and off for the past 3 months and can currently play lower 3* maps without an issue

Played osu!mania for around 1.5-2years now. Currently ranked around 950~1000. Only other rhythm game I've played before osu!mania was LLSIF. Started out with 7k when I first played osu!mania and I literally got some headaches for the first week or 2.

It does not take 10 years to become top 100 lmao. Maybe 5-6 but 10 is wayyyy too long, unless you're playing multiple other rhythm games too. Top 100 is also way too misleading to begin with because rank doesn't really say much in mania because it's so revolved around 7k.

Tbh, don't really worry about rank. It makes people think too much about their own skillset and could guide them the wrong way, especially if they want to enjoy the game more.

Took me a year and a half to reach top 100, but that lasted only 3 minutes because I decided to pass TLDNE with a really bad score. Been at least top 300 for I think a year now. I used to play this game like it is my job though, don't be like me, pls enjoy game

Been playing for a year and a half, still can't play songs harder than 4* 7k. =P
I don't play a lot though

Been playing o!m as my first rythm game for 7 months, now residing in the lower #2K rank.
I'm horrible at 7k tough >_>
posted
been playing mania for 8 months on and off now i'm ~13k rank. 4k only. I play 7k for like a month now and can do 2.5* at best.
posted
I don't even know how to count my play time orz
Considering that the first year of my account's existence was me being totally inactive, I guess I've been here for 2 years
1000-1100's for now, I'm better at 7k than I am at 4k (5-6 and sometimes higher on 7k, while 4k's 5.5* maps can make me fail) rip

Using rank as a measure over such a long period of time doesn't work that well. PP is probably a bit better to use, but that's certainly not a viable measure either, since a new ranked map can cause a big boost without any skill improvement.

Why is rank not a good measure over a long period of time? Well...




I was rank 666 quite a while ago and now I'm at almost the exact same rank while I'm not too far away from double the amount of pp as well as big skill improvements.

This whole thing with "x rank after y years" is mostly just spewing out nonsense since the ranking system doesn't directly show skill. I'm sorry to bring the negative ~vibes~ but someone's gotta say it -u-

Agreed, but we got what we got and have to deal with it for now

It's not like the pp system is just as flawed and needs a revamp
