People were voting on different maps to receive leaderboards, and many felt red like roses (a map) shouldn't get them because it is not as technical and pretty as this other map, graces of heaven, which almost didn't make the cut because gimmicky maps (aka: "boring" maps") were voted for instead. Some people got very angry.
if red like roses gets loved i'm going to be a staunch opponent against this system
in no way shape or form should that ever get loved, it's objectively a terrible map.
it's pretty clear the mass of the community actually doesn't love the map i listed, but instead the people who can barely play it (or can't at all) voting for it.

red like roses is the least interesting map to play i've ever seen and it sucks so bad in a subjective and objective level because it flows terrible and it fails to follow the song while copying jumps straight from airman while the map looks like my cat vomited into an ocean of shit also the fact that it flows terrible makes it extremely awkward to play because the notes dont really follow a pleasant way to play the map
really there's absolutely NOTHING good about that map and people like it
the fact that people believe that map is good and "graces of heaven is not that interesting to play" just makes me want to commit suicide because of humankind's stupidity in failing at recognizing one of the only objectively bad maps there ever existed
so basicly if a bunch of people support something it justifys it? aight ISIS Hitler drugs and everything else anyone has EVER supported or agreeded / liked by a massive amount of people is alright. regardless of loved or not its horribly made and there are better maps that could be picked and its only getting picked because hurr durr jumps im 100k i like to play 7* its in bad taste theres nothing more to it. Honestly this community has such horrible taste in maps my god.Elitism: Elitism is the belief or attitude that some individuals who form an elite—a select group of people with a certain ancestry, intrinsic quality or worth, high intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes—are those whose influence or authority is greater than that of others; whose views on a matter are to be taken more seriously or carry more weight; whose views or actions are more likely to be constructive to society as a whole; or whose extraordinary skills, abilities, or wisdom render them especially fit to govern.

Fuck that vote, am I right? Graces of Heaven almost didn't make it, this just gets to show how bad this community is. If they had voted Graces of Heaven out, we should just have ranked it anyway instead of ranking this piece of shit map red like roses, nobody likes it anyway.
Some people are so full of themselves, they actually believe that graces of heaven deserves the spot over red like roses, even though the community-vote clearly showed which map is more popular. It is not a coincidence that all the players I quoted above, are players that have the technical skill to play graces of heaven. Fieryrage, who is currently #153, even had the audacity to claim that the majority doesn't actually love red of roses, AFTER the vote already showed red like roses to be the clear winner.
Think about this for a moment, because I believe this is critical:
"it's pretty clear the mass of the community actually doesn't love the map i listed, but instead the people who can barely play it (or can't at all) voting for it."
He doesn't seem to be aware that the people who can barely play the map, actually ARE the mass of the community.
This is one of the most open displays of despicable elitism I've seen on this site in a long time.
People voted for red like roses because it has a nice song, and because it is actually playable. Red like roses is a very popular map in lower ranked lobbies, people like the song and the challenge. It's popular where people aren't so good that they don't instantly die on graces of heaven, but can struggle their way through red like roses (while enjoying the struggle!). And for that it deserves to the leaderboard more than graces of heaven.
It's the reason the vote turned out the way it did. Only because you find it boring to play, doesn't mean that thousands of low ranked players feel the same way. The fact that particular high ranked players like to ignore this very simple fact is all the more worrying.
I don't want to make this thread an epic smackdown where I pick apart the elitist entitlement, blatant disdain for the tastes of lower ranked players, and generally disgusting attitude that came with the quotes. I think, knowing the context, the quotes speak for themselves.
You should be fucking ashamed.
