How can a pp system be so broken?
Flowing maps from mappers like koliron, CLSW, alienflybot and Ascendance give you way too much pp.
The thing is that many maps between 4-5 Stars are still not FC'ed because they are way to underrated and maps with like 7-9 Stars get FC'ed with HR or HR HD in the next few days after the map got released. With the current system we don't need anything like rankings.
Examples:
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/306583 894pp for SS and in the first few days we even had 3 FC's with HR.

https://osu.ppy.sh/b/27638 A not flowing map with 9.03 Stars. As you can see there are only 2 players with under 20 misses.

https://osu.ppy.sh/b/800237 6.71 Stars and there is one player with 25 misses which is the best score.

https://osu.ppy.sh/b/693288&m=2 A good example is this map because it's only 3.95 Stars and still only 4 people got FC on it.

https://osu.ppy.sh/b/657916&m=2 Also this one with 4.39 Stars and no one got FC NOT EVEN ExGon.

At the end I wanted to say that I don't hate these mapper / maps I just hate the pp system (not just me many many other too).
These maps are cool to play and should be enjoyed by other but, instead many people just go and speak bad about the mappers which put much effort in these maps.

Hi there! Out of P8107, the other maps you linked are osu!standard maps. As it is known, osu!standard mappers don't really look into making their beatmaps good look or play well in other game modes... which is sorta logical because they only map for their own game mode. Converted maps usually have tons of the so-called "edge dashes", which is a borderline distance between 2 notes that doesn't generate an hyperdash but it's still possible to catch. Veteran players know the struggle to play those ones!

You can post your concerns in this thread instead of opening a new one. I'm not gonna deny that "edge dashes" make a beatmap have less Star Rating and therefore give less PP than hyperdashes, but you cannot blame those 4 awesome mappers for making nice projects for your game mode which are actually enjoyable, challenging and hey... they make you win PP and go further in the global ranking!

My 2 cents: Play whatever you like to play regardless of the PP and enjoy this game as much as you can. Peace out.
