# Just me or is the new difficulty sorting different?

Holy shit this is actually a good feature.
I like it but the only problem is that I think I can start play 4 star maps (3.5) then this change happens...
Well I wish they just had actual ranges assigned to the ranges.

3 star and 4 star are both values, and not ranges.

so "is 3 3.00 - 3.99 or 2.50 - 3.49" is a pointless argument because both are wrong. One is evenly inaccurate, one is a bit faster to process. bad

please fuck off osu. just give
<1
1 - 1.99
2 - 2.99
etc. ranges.
That way you can refer to a "? - ?" range as a "? - ?" range instead of referring to a "? -?" range as a "?" value

Then you thought wrong.

Bauxe just said it's "#.00 - #.99". Im a bit confused at what youre trying to say here.
I nvr really considered a 3.5* - 3.99* difficulty to be a 4* tbh.

for example a range for
3.00 - 3.99 stars
is referred to as "3 stars" - which is a value, not a range
it might seem not relevant to anything but I feel that it can create many minor problems everywhere
# is a range while #.00 is a value if youre being specific.
"I can play 3 star maps" which implies 3.00-3.99
"I can play 3.00 star maps" being specific here which gives clarity

it seems like a non-issue, unless you have a better way to say a range in shorthand?

I've argued this before. Trust me, you don't want to start it again.
Oh boy, here we go again.

3 is a range that has a span of 0, beginning with 3 and ending with 3. Congratulations.

Hey if more people think this way then it's actually going to create fun threads in G&R, but I think it's better to take such statements as approximations (important when going above the stated value but it's not even related)

#### Dexus wrote:

It does, however that clarity should be worthless as 3 is equal to 3.00. I do assume that you know that - You seem to just have a different set of rules which is why I'm not trying to argue anything (can't either way)

The issue should already be evident as it allows threads like this one to exist and creates potential for confusion.
"n" ranges in osu have changed their hidden span of star difficulty to a more clear one. This thread was created because of confusion from this change.
My point is that for clarity, ranges should have their span stated before you open them. Not, for example, "5 stars" which was 4.50 - 5.49 and is 5.00 - 5.99.
Just state it on the HUGE box before it gets clicked. There is enough space for
<1
1 - 1.99
2 - 2.99
etc.
Yes, the different set of rules we're working with is that 3 with no precision is a range and 3.00 is the exact value

Shut up, mommy

I offer this solution to forever end the G&R madness

Go to 4 if you want something done about it.
