Hi,
So I recently looked into playing with a mouse and keyboard as opposed to just a mouse as higher level beatmaps are almost impossible using a mouse only. The only problem is, even with easy maps, this feels unnatural. Is there any way I can make playing with a mouse and keyboard more comfortable? Thanks!

Playing more will do, it's just a matter of conditioning yourself.
Regarding highlevel beatmaps being impossible with mouseonly:

Almost nothing feels natural at first. If you just play more using mouse + kb style you'll get used to it eventually... the initial stage is always the hardest. Stick through it! GOOD LUCK!

Try adjusting the position of your hand and the keyboard. Experiment to find your ideal position for playing Osu!. It's probably not the same position you would use to type or play other games.

i play Mouse Only and i can play up to 6 star maps/ Extra difficulties / etc. Not impossible, just takes a lot of practice and dedication

You're lying to yourself.

I had the same struggle when I started using mouse + kb (some time after that I moved to tablet + kb since I had one). It takes some time to get used to. The good thing about mouse + kb (or any "combo" really) is that you are dividing the tasks to both sides of your brain instead of just one (when playing with mouse alone).

why the bitching? i never said i could FC them, being able to "play them" doesn't mean having to get high scores on them. keep your shit to yourself, douchebag.

I played mouse only same as you and the same happened to me. It felt unnatural at first due to the different feeling to clicking that a mouse gives. However after about a week i was setting a lot better scores than i was with mouse only.

Theoretically of course you could get a lot better than me just by using mouse only. But it is a lot lot harder

What do you mean by mouse and keyboard? I sometimes move from mouse only to mouse click for single tap and keyboard for streams.

I can mash my way through Airman. Obviously that means I can play 7 star maps???

Being able to pass something doesn't mean shit and trying to use it as a point is also bullshit and you will always rightfully get called out for it.
