Reading how to git gud posts, threads, guides, etc. won't really help you get good tbh. You just need to play more of whatever you want to be good at and eventually it will click. There is no "everyone is good at X after practicing it Y hours," it's different for everyone.

I found thelewa's post about accuracy and jesus' post about streaming very helpful.

If you are one of those new players who think "I am doing this wrong", "I am hit a wall at 1k pp" well chances are someone else half way across the world is tapping the same way you do, holding mouse the same way you do, scratching his nose the same way you do, and he is a successful player. Also as mouse player it helps to do some research about mouse you use, you might learn something.

To get out of this mindset first you need to forget about what you are doing coz that information will not help you, and instead pay attention to detail and focus on how you are doing it. e.g. What: "I am claw grip user" -> How: "Middle finger sits on right side of mouse-wheel for Y-axis control, ring finger on right lip for X-axis control, pinky adjusts yaw for miscalculated maneuvers, etc."

Once you habbit yourself into this level of thinking that you can tweak your performance. After awhile it becomes natural, then you don't have to think anymore just let it happen. You will stop thinking and just do. When you see pro players spectate other pro players and see a really good play they say "how is he doing this?" If you're still unable to figure out your weakness then just focus on what you think you are doing right and play maps to your strength you will enjoy the game more this way. Good luck.

stop playing hards, challenge yourself, but play stuff that you can still actually play, aim for B's ~90%, and play more

I actually decided to give up tonight.

I went back and couldn't even complete C on 4* beatmaps I'd previously got S on. I'm progressively getting worse every single time I play this game I have no idea what's going on. I turned off hardware acceleration which people had said was a crutch and I guess that's causing me to have to "re-learn" the game but I'm not actually relearning anything, I'm just worse at it. Period. I don't move the mouse properly, I just plain suck at the game now. I can barely play 2* at this point.

I've invested a lot of time into this game but I simply don't have the eye-hand coordination to be able to play it at a level above a novice. The fact that I've devolved so rapidly after having investing so, so, so, so much fucking time into the game has sealed the deal for me. I need to quit. This game just isn't for me.

Have you tried a tablet

I would've quit this game a long time ago without one because playing with a mouse is horribly un fun.

Haven't tried playing with a tablet, but I originally started playing the game so I could get better at games like League other RTS-type games.

Ironically, I've become better at League in the meantime. Is using a tablet that much of a difference?

I'm a lefty, would that be a big impact?

Tablet made the game more enjoyable and I instantly went to fcing low to mid 4 star maps so :|

Tablet might not be the answer for you #mousemasterrace
If you're going to buy a tablet you'll either:
1: Have to learn how to tap with your right hand
2: Have to learn how to play with your right hand.

I'm a lefty myself and bought a tablet a while back. Learning "how to tablet" will be a bigger obstacle than playing with your mouse tbh.
Just try to enjoy the game, and don't force anything. If you're not having fun then stop playing.
Good luck~

Learning how to tablet won't be any obsticle at all; especially if you remain complete shit at mouse, ehat do you have to lose?

I'm already tapping with my right hand and mousing exclusively with my left hand. I single tap currently because double tapping fucks with my head, though I've heard it's impossible to get "good" at the game without double tapping.

Is that your term for alternating? because you dont need to alternate

Did you hear that from some shitty 50k player?

Accel is evil and will stuff you up in ALL games not just osu! Turning it off is first step to victory :D

It's helped me with a lot of other games but it fucked me royally with Osu.

I'll be frank OP.

I am not by all means a pro player, so this is entirely subjective.

I have also once hit that 'wall'. I know how angry you become when you cannot even pass maps that are considered 'easy' by the community.
Sure, playing more is and will always be the answer! But if you become discouraging, you will be unable to continue with a clear mind. And without a clear mind, you cannot focus therefore you aren't playing at your best. You must think positively. I've seen people who has only played one month that have gotten scores that took me almost 3 months to get.

Don't be influenced by others and buy a *insert shitty gaming item*. Play your own style and your own way and stop comparing yourself to others.
That's how cookiezi managed to become such a great player perhaps even the world's best. Playing maps at your own skill is a great advice, but a excellent advice is to always surpass your limits. I myself played insane maps everyday whether I couldn't even pass first 30 seconds or not, though it's a horrible way for many, it was able to make me grow fast and surpass the limits that I thought I would never be able to break.

Don't take other's path, pave your own path. MP is a excellent way to improve your skills fast, as it allows you to compete against others and the human nature always wants to win, and that craving for victory will gradually increase and your skills will increase.

Though there are many that are making fun of you(I'm looking at you Taiga), everyone started out this way. Rafis,WWW,hvick and even the famous cookiezi. So don't be discouraged.

I want YOU to listen to this and I want YOU to improve and BECOME a better player. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhzNSPiqO0M

Have a nice day mate! And one day, I hope you become a top player~ The Actor
