This poll could have been expanded a bit more to accommodate for those who primarily map in one mode, but have intent on mapping in another. For example, I primarily map for mania, but I'm slowly tinkering around with mapping standard/Taiko as well, haha.
The only thing that prevent me for mapping (because I'm no professional)is mainly: 1. Manual BPM setting (so tedious, is there any alternative I wonder...) 2. Abbreviation and other things that I didn't understand(SV, 1/2, 1/3 I don't understand) 3. There's so many things to do, but can't really tell the actual phase of it (like step-by-step or something) 4. Unwritten rule about certain things (maintaining the flow, set a fitting AR, CS, and OD for each difficulty [FAQ is not related], and other)
Is there anything that can help me solve this problem, then I'll map right away
Well atfer school mapping is my 2nd life. I map whenever i have i some freetime and feel like it. Why do i map? Because there are so so so many good songs out there which deserve a Map, and since there are so many japanese songs already im mainly focusing on House, DnB, Hardstyle etc. Mapping can be really fulfilling as well, whenever you start a new map youre like "How the hell am i supposed to map that" then you map it like 2 times and just now how to map it. Its an awesome feeling. And the feeling to contribute something to the game itself is really amazing, and thats where all the fun comes from, as a mapper youre actually keeping the game alive. Mapping is love, mapping is life.
