00:52:977 (3) - Unnecessary triplet imo. Make it consistent with 00:50:478 (2,3) - . theres drums there, i dont skip drums anywhere in this diff. these are also present in Insane
00:56:614 (3) - Also unnecessary imo... same
01:20:933 (4,5,6,1,2,3) - Use bigger jumps here like what you did with 01:19:720 (4,5,6) - . This section is quite intense imo, reflect that with more difficult movements! rotated these sliders to get bigger jumps 01:21:236 (6) - 01:21:842 (3) - 01:22:448 (6). DS slightly higher than other similar sections 01:11:842 - 01:28:811, but makes up for the easy circular flow i think?
00:51:690 (2,3,4) - imo, for verse sections, its fine to just stack triplets instead of spacing them. They really make the map seem cleaner too since you don't get as much overlapping visuals. Anyways, I would recommend this change for an Insane diff. You're welcome to keep them on highest diff for the extra challenge of having to aim and move through the triplets. They don't feel super necessary for me too though, so i guess stacking them (and subsequent ones) is a good idea. i only use regular stacks here 00:20:099 (1,2) - and here 01:08:660 (1,2,3) - (both have the same vocal pattern, leading into some important phrase). also if i make the stacking change, i wouldnt really have an excuse to leave the triples in the last kiai part 01:36:084 unstacked (slider-circle-slider stacking just looks really unappealing)
01:00:781 (1,2,3) - Etc... you can keep these i guess. keeping
01:41:236 (2,1) - Make these two one combo, cuz it looks nicer NC wise. Then NC 01:41:842 (2) - again. if i do that then https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/8165508 01:41:842 (1,2,3,4) - this combo will only be 1 beat, which i dont want. right now the NC pattern matches that of the highest diff. other alternative: https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/8165514 (3-beat NC pattern) lmk what you think about this alternative
01:43:130 - Silence the end. fixed
01:42:751 (1) - How about using a 1/1 slider then a circle at the end? Always nice to end on a click. if i do that, then the slider will also lose its visual impact since itll be matching with the rest of the 1/1 sliders in this final part 01:36:084 (dont really want to add any extra anchors because the slider is already short)
You have quite a similar aesthetic to my mapping style haha. This is great. The highest diff plays it a bit safe imo, but I'm sure you'll start experimenting with more spacing changes and jump patterns after this set gets ranked. Call me back for bubble.
note: also added extra kiai fountains (almost forgot to add those, rip) 01:19:114 - 01:26:387 - 01:36:084
