i must agree with this

finding an original (non-series related) background for an original song would be the best option imo
it's probably because you're used to the other United, but ar9 on this kind of map is totally fine imo

i did not ignore the bg problem, i've replied back like some replies ago. well, hope my words can help you understand instead of some words like lmao
- The tags, " i19 koa%wer koapower stream".
First word is the name of one of the five girls in the bg. First of all, tags shouldn't be used for name of the girls in an irrelevant bg that is also highly recommended to change, but also, why did you put only one name out of five? This doesn't make sense, the ranking criteria is not made for putting random bgs and for using tags only about the preferred girls.
Why are "koa%wer koapower" in the tags? that's words you used for other graveyard maps right? then those doesn't make sense here. Last people I remember using this kind of thing was GoldenWolf with "woof" but he had to remove it after Kanjou no Matenrou ~ World's End.
"stream", heh, really? People never tags maps going for ranked with "jump", "stream" or, idk "a lot of triplets", there's no point in keeping that.
- you're totally missing out the actually important tags like dnb/drum and bass.
i've read ranking criteria, and sadly i've not found any guildlines of tags besides gd tags. if my way of searching this map is actually not the way tag works i will remove it. tbh i've never type any keywords like drum and bass or vocaloid to find songs. i use like certain diff name (koa%wer) or mapper to find those series of maps
- I guess left-low corner didn't need any attention is this a problem?
- 01:00:945 (1) - what's the point of shapes like this? they look ugly, forced, red dots don't follow any point of the music and if they're changed in something more good-looking, playability of the map doesn't change. it is good looking to me tbh
- 01:16:030 (1) - same as ^ tbh ^ tbh
- 01:16:545 (3) - other forced shape ^
- 01:48:430 (8,2) - Unnecessary and bad looking overlap sorry this is not a problem
(oops missed )
- 02:32:488 (10,11,1) - what the hell lol please manually stack those with like 0.1/0.2 distance snap because yeah oh, didn't notice that
- 02:38:830 (5,6,7,8,9,10,11) - why not moving it so (5) stacks with 02:37:802 (9) - ? because unnecessary
- 02:45:516 (3,4,5) - this needs to get manually stacked too. ^
- 04:06:602 (4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,1,2,3,4,5) - I guess you just got lazy to follow the rhythm? I don't understand well, borrow your words, "I guess you just got lazy to listen to the music?"
many of my thoughts are subjective, of course, if not subjective why should i even bother to type those out? (no one cares what mapper thinks anyway lol)

Also, it fits Highscore better because kantai collection is a game and the term "Highscore" is from videogames. well if through this connection make sense, then my explanation make sense
I would still recommend changing the bg. The reasonings that you said only really contribute for the beginning of the song where the rain noises are. i mentioned that is because that's the unique part of the song to explain the bg, climax of the song can be explained as battles those girls encountered, too
Also, the girls in the bg don't say "united" or "team". It just looks like a generic anime background. girls in the bg definitely shows united, they are allies and stay in the same team, maybe you define 2D characters bg all anime i guess.
This may be subjective but I'm confident most people would agree with me. it is subjective, mine is subjective, too. but that is actually an explanation comes from, isn't it?
Not being able to find a more suitable bg seems more lazy than a proper excuse. It's okay to have some anime style bg, but this one just doesn't fit the song well at all. sadly i was telling you the truth, i've find many but no bgs match my satisfaction, you think it doesn't fit but i do feel it good, that's why i even use google translate to explain my thoughts to you guys.
Also, if many people mutually agree that the bg should be changed, then I think that's a sign to consider replacing this bg. For these reasons, I highly recommend to change the bg of this map. if you are aiming for a bg change, sure, but i have to find something better than current version and satisfy my expectation.
ironically no one mentioned bg choice before it get bubbled.Let me tell you why there was no outside attention for this set before it somehow got bubbled.
thank you! i'm really glad that at least you still type your thoughts out

You've remapped one of the more iconic pieces of music in this game, which means you're already in a vast pool of duplicates and are competing for clicks that way. You've slapped on a BG from an obviously unrelated and massively popular franchise that doesn't really even fit your self-explained vision of the song. i do explained it in my eyes and thoughts, fit or not is subjective this way
Already you've turned away a big chunk of random beatmap browsers. But what did the few people who actually ended up clicking on this god-forsaken beatmap entry see? A difficulty name that was a meme, and tags that looked like nothing more than gibberish. Great.
changed the diff name, and considered the tag already.
Now, if by some miraculous chance, someone, after seeing all this, did go ahead and download the map anyway, what did they get to experience in-game? A lazy, repetitive, washed-out version of the classic that is Asphyxia's United. Nothing unique, no twist, just a dumbed-down United. And you expect anyone to have thought of your map as a serious attempt at a ranked product? yes, i'm serious, and i can somehow understand why it is quite lazy, repetitive, wash-out in your eyes. if looking into the famous(as you said) Asphyxia's united deeper you can find there are many undermapping or even overmapping stuff i cannot really understand why is the beat there or be ignored. so i made my own version to express the real united beats, and this is what it should be like+my own mapping concept. what i've discovered is that many people just don't understand where the beats are from instead of "oh, streams, 2hard4me". and some others comes to disagree my spacings stuffs, and thus i've asked ppls' opinion, well as a conclusion ppl have different views on it.
This submission looked, smelled and tasted like a bad meme, not a serious beatmap. THAT is why there was nobody in the thread to point these issues out. You weren't being taken seriously.sadly i agree with you
It must be really infuriating that this somehow gathered enough attention after the first bubble, and you couldn't just slip this through to qualified silently when it'd be too late for you to have to fix anything. Better luck next time I guess. um actually no, i don't think attention is the problem though, the problem is the "attention" is not trying to understand my thoughts and map (if someone read the whole thread miraculously), and i was trying to explain stuffs > ppl doesn't even care my effort and thoughts in this map(instead like lazy, not unique, or just like you thinking this map is not a serious product) > more ppl come, more different opinions made those kinda mixed. well at least ppl seems disagree my BG choice, and my explanation doesn't work to you anyways. i have already consider it through months, this bg still works to me.
Oh, and to avoid being completely non-productive, here's a couple BGs that somewhat fit your "vision" of the music (which I actually agree with, to an extent), but aren't from god damn Kancolle:i must say thank you to this, i will consider it.
this is not a weeb song zzz
this bg is ok for this song

Still looking forward to rank this, but seems like some part of the mapping community didn't like it.
