Though it was only submitted a week ago, I think I have enough confidence about the quality of this map. I mapped it seriously and tried all my best to find mods. So why not take a look I'm sure you will not disappoint about that
Next Round: November 1st. Summary: Not nearly as many marathons as I was hoping, but still some good contenders and a few good songs. I don't plan on telling you who I will or won't pick, but every map I choose will be done before the beginning of the next round. If you did not follow all the rules, your mapset will likely be ignored (unless the song is actually amazing). (Forgot to close this last night, thanks exam-studying.)
Please do not post in this queue until it reopens.
Similarly to last round, I accepted quite a few requests. I ended up getting to a few, but overall most weren't really up to par in song choice or mapping technique. I do plan on getting to Karia's mapset at a bit later date, as I found the map fun at least, it'll just take a bit of time. Overall, the queue seems to be really hit or miss, as the first round had some pretty great submissions and the second weren't as good. This is probably due to the nature of the themes, so I'll keep tweaking with this over time.
Round 3 (RD)
Duration: November 1st to November 10th. Restrictions: This round I'll be modding "technical" maps. Maps that require good reading skills or in-depth technical skills are required, that means no generic jump/stream maps. Details: When requesting your mapset, please include why you think it is ready for rank and what set its apart from all the other mapsets I could be checking. You don't need to write too much, just a sentence or two. Reminder: I'm not necessarily modding the maps during these 10 days, I'm reviewing them. Most maps I accept from this round will be modded by the next round, opening on the 1st of December.
Please read the first post if you do not want to be blacklisted.
It's an example of an easier, more consistent style of mapping Billain that is applicable to more players than the crazy, berserker style seen in Amber's Love or Boogie. This track has more simple rhythms than those two, but still displays the unusual rhythms Billain is known for. I mapped it to be extremely playable even for players normally unable to keep up with bluetick rhythms by encouraging polarity swaps and focusing more on flow and immersing the player in the weird rhythm, making the patterns and individual spacing secondary.
So far, the concepts have been proven extremely effective, and I want to rank it for it to be an example of proving that unusual rhythms don't need to be difficult to play.
That, and I like the creepiness of the track. ┐(°﹃°)┌
If you can see this it means I'm posting outside of the mapping forums and you should take anything I said with heaps of salt, or as purely intended for humor.
As the title says, this set is pretty overcomplex. Been pending for nearlly a year and I believe its been ready for quite some time now. Guess I could say Camellia is weird to map and offers a lot of variation and I believe we've captured that fairly well.
Turns out you modded this way earlier this year :p
I think my mapset is ready for rank because I have gotten feedback from multiple BNs, and have improved the mapset accordingly based on their responses. I believe that osu needs more "videogame music" (in terms of modern mapping). There have only been a handful of videogame genre maps that have gotten through this year (the majority of them have been undertale obviously) but I think my mapset will be a unique addition to osu. The song is fast paced (and somewhat repetitive) but requires the player to have exceptional reading skills in order to achieve high accuracy.
my mapset which is http://osu.ppy.sh/s/302884 I think it is worth a BN check because I improved it a lot these past 2 months and some people (modder and BN) think the map is good. I can say this is my 2016 style map. The map has great spread for almost everyone. I think that is all I can say, any suggestion is appreciated, thanks!
I've actually worked really hard on my parts of the difficulties to make it look really nice while adding my own style of mapping. I believe every guest mapper has done their best also so I don't want to let them down. I think this may be one of the best maps I've ever made. I believe the current set will be able to get to ranked with just a couple of mods, maybe 2 or 3 good mods after (with yours included of course). This mapset is mostly guest difficulties but that means people can enjoy a variety of mapping styles all with one download and who wouldn't enjoy another tatoe xdxdxdx
The map's been on pending for 3 years (by December it'll be 4th year), so it doesn't really follow much of the things we have on maps today. It's a little more straightforward with few twists and no confusing movement (except perhaps the last portion on the hardest difficulty.) Even then, I don't think its something too similar to something from its time period (2012/2013). The spread was aimed to increase difficulties playable by lower rankers instead of having a lot of extras, but the last difficulty is something pretty memorable for a lot of people. I think it's ready for ranking since I've already had a ton of feedback (a few mods, ingame suggestions, plus testplays) on it, and there are a lot of people saying its a good map, although that's up to you to decide. It would be great to see this ranked soon. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply to my pm btw.

Just some confusing cursor movement playing with anti jumps, linear flow and structured overlaps to reflect how I interpret the song, and I've explained nearly everything in the map so might be ready for rank
A map with generally slow slider velocity, which I was thinking fits the theme and song genre quite well. This means the map is perfect for people who have great snapping abilites otherwise they just fail miserably.
