# Are jumps the only important skill ?

The way to develop stream stamina is to continually push yourself to try to stream whatever speed even though you've already started hitting 100's,50's and misses a long time ago.

Every stream after the 20 second mark here is representative of that but if you give up and stop trying you won't develop.

thats actually some really good advice, and i myself already do this. i always play stream practice maps till the end
I wouldn't recommend stream practice maps unless they're like the first map I showed. If they're like axion that only go in squares with no patterns then fuck that. Dragonforce maps like heroes of our time are good stream maps around the 190-210 range.
i myself use this https://osu.ppy.sh/s/77609
i think its pretty good
Reading is the only important skill.

As someone who can't play&read jumps very well, it feels like going up in star rating is purely based on your jump-skill, since streams can be mashed and acc can be fixed by retrying - is that the way it works ?
Acc isn't fixed by retrying. The chance to get lucky and get 99+ acc when you usually get around 90 is very very low. You can show this mathematically.

Here's a simple example: Assuming hits are determined by purely by chance and assuming you have a 95% chance to get a 300, for a map with 200 circles the chance to get an SS is 0.95^200 = 0.003%. This would take you 28000 tries to get on average.
Streaming and Acc in general are my only good skills in osu, jumps are my biggest wall - that's why I wondered.
Farm pp from streammaps then:

Stuff like this, depending on what bpm you like...
And please don't complain to me about them possibly having a few jumps, most jumpmaps have a few streams as well. And yeah, you can just flail through jumps as well.

Not trying to be rude or anything but you are actually the perfect example of what I see when looking at some friends or for other people in my pp range:

You have multiple <95% fc's and 97% average acc - propably not because you are the master of stream accuracy but because you were able to hit all jumps. If you read a double as a triple wrong or mess up your stream timing all you will lose are a few 100's - if you mess up a jump it's a miss and nothing else. I only come up with: 'being able to do the jumps of a map makes you able to fc it.'
I feel like it's the opposite, I suck at jumps compared to most people around my rank but because my streaming around 200 bpm is okayish I can get free pp from maps like mei, eye of devileliet, rog limitation, ... that require almost 0 aim and have only basic jump patterns and stacked streams that require no aim (or slider streams for free acc).
Also streams.
Play More is a good skill to have aswell
One would think so... My acc is usually on point, 99% at least and usually more like 99.5 or even SS, until I sliderbreak something or miss. All I know is that when I fc something it is mostly with really good acc so it will give me nice pp.
pp farming is the only non-important skill
No.
Maybe yes... and maybe no...
listen

jumps is not the important skill
there are like a hundred of skill that you need to learn
ye but they don't give pp ;c
