00:08:122 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - I think it's not clear what rhythm you are following here.1 and 2 clearly follow the guitarish sound, and so does 3. Then 4 is on the drums and 5/6 follow the guitar again. What I don't understand is why you'd prioritize drums on 4 when 3 completely ignores the drum on the white tick.
All objects but 3 could be seen as "following the drums" (since they hit white ticks aswell), but 3 misleads into thinking the guitar is the main focus, so 4 is just confusing. A solution to this pattern could be something like this. That pattern makes more sense because all clicks are on white ticks up to 3, which introduces clicks on the offbeat with a passive rhythm, and 4 makes sense here because no white ticks were ignored. Consider making 6 a reverse, since ignoring the guitar sound @ 00:11:872 is not justifiable at that point -- Some notes are really out of rhythm so I deleted them

00:12:122 (1,2,3,4) - This pattern has a similiar issue. Here I think this rhythm would be the best solution, because it's consistent with the previous pattern. The clickable on 7 can be justified because in the previous pattern a reverse 6 had an object there. It's about properly introducing rhythms and patterns with passive rhythms first. I did a slider 00:14:122 (4) - shorter so now the pattern should have a clear guitar rhythm

00:16:122 (1,2) - 1, 2, and 2's sliderend all represent the same sound. Plus, 1's sliderend follows the bass line, while 2 ignores it. To solve both of these issues I suggest you shorten 2 and add a clickable object, like so I think my version is better

1. 00:58:122 (6) - I prefer NC here, cause I think a 00:59:622 (9) combo in Normal is kinda weird. I see no reason for NC
2. 01:11:622 (6) - Is start of this slider you should add a normal addition, cause better consistency in hitsounding. Done
3. 01:19:622 (5,6) - I think you should make here a normal addition on start of slider and auto addition on circle, cause then it sounds much better in my opinion. Done

1. 00:09:122 (4) - There is no reason to skip the drum @ 00:09:622 , especially when 00:08:122 (1,2,3) - starts off so dense. You should shorten the slider and add a clickable object, like you did for 00:13:122 (4) - Fixed
2. 00:10:122 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - Rhythm is all over the place with this one. While there are sounds an all objects, the emphasizing is way off imo. This is an example on how it should be done, and I'll explain thoroughly why to ensure you get an idea of how to fix similiar patterns:
4 was shortened to land on the drum. Consequently, 5 and 6 were placed on offbeats since 1, 2 and 4 also follow the guitar. 7 was placed as a circle rather than a slider so that 8 can be a slider instead. This is because 8,9,10 emulate 00:08:122 (1,2,3) - same clicking Fixed
3. 00:13:872 (1,2,3,4,5,6) - I can hear the continous 1/2 noise in the bg, but the guitar and drums are more prominent and not prioritizing them plays poorly. I suggest the same changes as above Fixed
4. 00:16:122 (1,2,3,4) - 1,2,3 are perfect. 1 follows the guitar, bass and drums, 2 makes sense because of the bass addition and the slight guitar sound, and 3 is emphasized by having it be a slider. 4, on the other hand, emphasizes the same sounds differently for no reason. I advise you restructure the rhythm starting from 4 onwards by repeating 1,2 and 3 Fixed

In general this diff could use some better rhythm.

1. 00:13:122 (4) - Why there isn't clap on a head of slider like before? You should to add it for better sounds.
2. Ok, that's all form hitsounds. To be hosent with you this is not the best diff i've seen ever. The Distance Snap is really randomely and aesthetics is kinda bad. You need to still improve your mapping, of course everyone must started. I prefer to you watch a pishifat videos on YouTube, because he is learning newbies and experienced mappers how to making our maps better. nice mod

01:41:122 (4) - Looks weird could change it to look nice like this
https://puu.sh/vQa18/a01e436610.jpg

01:53:122 (4,5) - All of the other patterns with similar rythmn have much smaller DS like at 01:44:872 (2,3) - or 01:18:122 (1,2) -
Why is the DS larger here?
01:29:622 (5,6) - Same here, no prominent sound on 6 to justify such a large jump
01:40:122 (1,2,3) - The sounds here are really similar and I feel should be mapped the same ( 2 sliders or 4 circles )

Feelzy's hard:

General: The DS changes so often its hard to point out everything, but the constantly switching DS looks really unorganized in a lower diff

00:16:622 (2) - Not too much of a problem but this touches the health bar, might want to move it down a little
00:12:622 (2,3,4) - Just opinion but this looks kinda sloppy to me, looks like 2 failed blankets imo
02:00:122 (1,1,1) - I like pretzels too but these objects look pretty weird
hi from modqueue o/
this seems like a wellmodded map already, I'll do my best to find what others may have missed

[General]
00:33:122 (3) - counting these sections as kiai time is weird as the rhythm itself doesn't change intensity. It'd be like seeing a wub map adding kiai every time a fast slider came. The same applies for all of the other onesound-sections.

[Easy]
02:00:122 (1,1,1) - shortening these 3 spinners by 1 redtick will make them follow the music and give more time for new players to react to the spinners.

[Eiji's Normal]
01:03:872 (1) - Sliders should start on strong sounds and end on sounds of equal or relatively less strength.
01:38:872 (6) - follow the concept you establish here 01:34:872 (6) - and shorten your slider by 1 red tick to end on a strong sound. note: i see you do this through most of the map from then on. The easiest fix would be to lengthen the first slider by 1 red tick, but I don't feel that reflects the music accurately because of the strong beat/vocal on the white ticks, so instead I suggest to rework all of those other sliders. sorry, I know it's a pain.

[Feezly's Normal]
00:10:872 (3,4) - Sliders should generally start on strong sounds and end on sounds of equal or relatively less strength. This is done all throughout the map, consider reworking those sections. Look at Eiji's Normal to see a good example of this. Some of his ending /vocal lengthy sliders are up for debate though, but I consider them okay because it's a normal where undermapping is used heavily.

[Panty's Hard]
00:08:872 (3,4) - these are angled differently from these 00:08:122 (1,2) - . It's an easy fix with copy paste.

2. 01:44:122 (1) - Maybe stack this on 01:41:872 (4) -
3. I think the diff feels empty and needs more objects Unlike Easy, this diff feels really less dense and it's like mapping only to 1 sound which is pretty 1 sided.

2. 00:34:622 (2,3) - Fix blanket
3. 02:00:122 (1,1,1) - This feels too repetitive. Which is kinda boring. Is this aspire? xddd
4. The diff needs flow and aesthetics, I feel the notes are just randomly placed and it's just like you're eyeballing everything, like for example 01:28:122 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7) - This section feels so random because the flow changes every time on each slider and it looks aesthetically bad. I believe you should do comfortable flow since the song is soft and slow and doesn't need such flowkillers even if it's a hard diff

[Panty]
1. If this is a hard then you're breaking the ranking criteria guideline that says
Avoid streams made of more than 5 notes.
Consider nerfing this
2. 00:52:872 (6,7,8) - I think this jump isn't necessary as there is no strong sound there. Also people might think that this is 1/2 spaced instead or w/e
3. There are too many streams, which is not appropriate for a hard diff, consider removing the streams or rework this as an Insane diff instead.

[General]
1. Is the storyboard done? It looks like there's just a blue line in the middle of the screen going up and down

[Easy]
1. Whenever you have 1/2 sliders like 00:33:122 (2) - , you can still have a clap hitsound play in order to preserve the hitsound pattern. You just need to switch to a custom sampleset on the slider tick, and name the clap hitsound drum-slidertickXXX.wav, where XXX is the number of the custom sampleset. Ths way, the long sliders won't seem weird compared to the rest of the notes hitsound wise.

[Feezly's Hard]
1. You need justification for the DS changes which currently occur multiple times in the map, seemingly at random. As a result it looks very disorganized as it is. For example, the map starts out 1.5x, but suddenly switches to 1.3x at 00:12:122 (1) - seemingly for no reason. It then goes back and forth betwwen 1.5 and 1.3 before moving to 1.2x? The intensity of the music remains pretty much constant until the chorus at the end so there should be DS changes like this unless you are implementing jumps (which there doesn't seem to be)
2. In general, I think the notes need more structure. A lot of the map feels a bit randomly placed, even ignoring the varying DS changes. For example, 00:51:122 (6,7,8,1) - these notes could have easily been in a perfect line, and most of the blanketed notes (eg, 00:08:872 (3,4) - 00:33:122 (3,4,1) - 00:34:622 (2,3) - ) are not blanketed precisely, and a lot of the notes which come directly before or after a slider (eg, 00:10:622 (2,3) - ) could be placed so that they are directly in line with the slider, and certain runs like 00:17:122 (3,4,5) - could easily be made into perfect triangles. There's a lot more examples of things that can be changed in order for the map to have more structure. Basically you should always try to ask yourself whether there's a reason a note was placed in a particular location.
3. 00:49:622 - You can still have a clap hitsound right here by changing to a custom sampleset with the clap sample as drum-slidertick.wav, same with 00:53:122 (3) - and a few other long sliders
4. 00:57:122 (1,2,3) - For 1/4 triples such as these, I would recommend using a much smaller DS than 1.6x. I think 1.0x would be an appropriate DS for the given difficulty of the map.
5. 01:08:122 (1,2) - I highly reccomend you switch this pattern either to 01:07:122 (1) - , 01:06:122 (1,2) - , or 01:04:122 (1,2,3) - . The slider tail is not a clickable element, which makes the tail weaker than the head. However, the 3rd pulse of the beat, which lands on the slider tail, is by convention stronger than the 2nd pulse. Thus, this pattern is rhythmically uncomfortable to play. Also, this is the only instance where the particular pattern is brought up, meaning it could easily be chtanged to one of the other options without affecting the map.
6. 01:17:122 (1,2,3) - Why do you start stacking triples here, only to stop stacking them at 01:25:122 (1,2,3) - ? You should probably be consistent with the rest of the map and space out the stacked notes. If you're going to have stacks, you should at least have some sort of reasoning on why one triple is stacked and another one isn't. You shouldn't just haphazardly switch between the two
