As of the last few weeks I've been mostly playing 3.5-4 star maps to work on getting my accuracy up (It used to be pretty awful, even worse than it was today.) Lately though, I've been trying out some 5-6 star maps, and just managed to clear a few today (Though it hasn't shown up in my scores yet, for whatever reason), though I've been able to beat a few with 75-80% accuracy,I'm worried that, by doing this, I'll be getting into the bad habit of just being okay with having poor accuracy so long as I complete the song. Should I go back to playing 4-stars, or just try and focus on better accuracy now that I can actually complete 5-6 stars?

Passing 5-6* doesn't mean much if you're getting 75-80%. Work on getting better acc at 3.5-3.6* first.

Play for A and S, not for B.
That will logically lead you to easier maps. It takes months until you can show a good performance on 5* maps therefore it doesn't make any sense to already push for them.

Alright.

On that note, do any of you know any good 3-4 star maps with a sizeable number of stacks and streams? Those tend to be my biggest accuracy killer on just about any star map. (Damn you Negastrife, and your 95%-To-Fail deathstreams)

Dont be desperate if it looks bad at first, streaming is hard to get into.
Thanks ^_^

And it's not so much *streaming* that I have a huge problem with, I can pass (most) streams perfectly fine (or theres no way in hell I could've ever passed a single 5 star map, it's like every single one of them has 10+ medium-length streams), I've just never been able to do them with good precision. Getting good acc on them has always been a crapshoot.

Well. More experienced players like me don't call it "streaming" if you just mash your keyboard at roughly the correct speed. I call that "mashing" instead.
Decent accuracy is an integral part of being able to stream. Doesn't have to be SS but should clearly head towards SS. Or more abstract: A low UR during streams.
UR is short for Unstable Rate and tells you how far your hits were from each in other in relation to the timing.
Meaning that on a fair stream all the hits are very close to each other on the hit error bar(even if they were in the 50 area it would count as streaming).

Do you realise the 'more expierience' means relative to the OP? Do you realise that PP does not equal experience?

>5.00*-6.00*
Just because you can clear a few doesn't mean that it is within your level already

And yes, you are trying to advance too quickly, skipping a lot of basics which you can learn over the entirety of maps near your level.

I'm currently trying to 99% FC these, you might find them useful:-

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys ^_^

I'll get back to you once I've S ranked all those maps.

Edit: RIP my accuracy

I second this.

Also, very nice B1rd. I remember when you first started and complained about not progressing, now your rank is amazing. Was your old avi from hellsing?

Also, yes you are trying to advance to quickly. Endaris has very good logic, but may strive a bit too much for accuracy.
