Natsu, after the changes I think it lost some uniqueness but it's fine, the jumps reflect well on the vocals and the contrasts are more suitable, I still wish you could keep that back and forth pattern because I understand the logic behind it and it is more fitting to the map than this imo.
The jumps you put there now still reflect the song well at the change of the vocal spine and the spacing you reduced in some parts and adjusted also looks nice.

I hope this can move forward without further ado.

everyone getting that problem just delete and redownload, I changed the mp3 to fit the video better a few days ago

Talked with alacat a bit about the map:



Also I already pm Mao and Irre, so let's see what they say o:

Edit:

from Okorin:

01:05:956 (2,3,4) - 02:08:356 (2,3) - 02:56:356 (2,3) - increased the spacing

Increased the spacing a bit at the cymbals in the end

01:36:256 (1) - improved the slider shape

00:18:856 (1,2) - increased the SV and changed the slider shape

from Irre:

03:02:056 (1,2,3,4,5,1) - nerfed

00:51:406 (7) - fixed a hitsound

00:51:556 (8,1) - about this one I talked with a few players and they said the flow was OK

Full log with Okorin
2017-05-16 23:29 Natsu: Hi Okorin, Irre told me that you have an issue with some jumps at the end of my map and also Mao told me to talk with you before asking BNs~
2017-05-16 23:32 Okorin: btw while playing i thought that 01:05:956 (2,3) - should stand out more through spacing 02:08:356 (2,3) - same, they seem really same-ish for what the vocals and stuff provide
2017-05-16 23:32 Okorin: i dont remember if there's one like that at the end of the last kiai or not
2017-05-16 23:33 Okorin: and for the ending i was just confused why you ignored cymbals from 03:03:106 - in terms of spacing
2017-05-16 23:35 Natsu: okay gonna fix these
2017-05-16 23:35 Okorin: also really minor but the two segments of 01:36:256 (1) - aren't parallel and it's bothering me so much that i have to write something about it
2017-05-16 23:35 Okorin: ok
2017-05-16 23:36 Natsu: any other thing?
2017-05-16 23:37 Okorin: not from my end, i was just asked to give my opinion about the diffspike jumps which you seem to have adressed in a way that makes sense, at least to me?
2017-05-16 23:38 Natsu: yeah, just Mao wanted me to ask to every one in the thread
2017-05-16 23:39 Okorin: btw why did you do nothing special for 00:18:856 (1,2) -
2017-05-16 23:39 Okorin: i mean you even have 02:38:656 (1,2) - being something special because it's the song title
2017-05-16 23:40 Natsu: mmm higher sv would work or a different slider shape?
2017-05-16 23:41 Okorin: anything that makes them stand out in comparison i think that would align with how you did this on most other instances of the song title
2017-05-16 23:41 Okorin: so
2017-05-16 23:42 Natsu: kk

what happened to the back and forths

obviously each kiai has three main intense parts
00:50:506 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - the singer goes back and forth between two notes, so the notes should also be back and forth, right up to 8.
01:00:106 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - this is the second intense part because the singer again goes back and forth between two notes rapidly
01:02:656 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1,2,3,4,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,1) - last part of the kiai, you can clearly hear the rise in intensity

why are those first two parts intense? not only because the density of the vocals is higher (sing more notes per second) but because the singer alternates between two notes, which is very very noticeable, hence the back and forth pattern.

well, 01:00:106 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - is also back and forth, so why aren't the hitcircles perfect back and forth, like the other pattern? well, the first back and forth notes, the singer sings at an interval of a 3rd, with 1 note between them. also, the background instruments are playing at the tonic key, which is the main key of the song. this is why the song sounds so stable. hence, the flat back and forths to express the stability of the song at this time.

the second back and forth at 01:00:106 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) - is NOT at the tonic key, and the singer sings at an interval of a 2nd, which is why the song sounds a little more unstable. this instability is expressed by the rotating back and forths instead of linear back and forths

finally, at the last part of the kiai we see some harmonic planing, which just means that the song is continually rising in key, this is very clearly heard. the map should be increasing in intensity again throughout this section, which it is, and nobody complained about it. i'm just mentioning it here so we get a better view of the bigger picture

in otherwords, the kiai is characterized by increasing instability, which is expressed by the stability of the first back-and-forths, and then the more unstable second back-and-forths, and finally the harmonic planing section which is not a single pattern at all.

the lynchpins of this progression are the three sections i have mentioned. just because they are not louder does not mean they aren't more intense. intensity isn't determined only by volume, but by the notes the singer is singing, the density of the vocals, the chord which the song is played at at that moment, and how this fits into the context of the entire song. please do not decrease the intensity of those jumps, and don't hesitate to revert the first section to purely back and forths, if you wish to.

mapping is not just about providing justification for every pattern, mapping is about expressing the feeling of a song. sometimes a mapper maps something he feels is right, and just because he can't provide 100% convincing justification does not mean he is wrong. don't hesitate to criticize, but please have some trust in experienced mappers.

Thanks for understand my map :)

I didn't have any more arguments to keep the pattern after 5 pages of discussion, that's why I changed the back and forth, the current pattern also work, so I hope I can get a compromise with it.
Oh and maybe I'll add the previous diff to the description or something.

well i gave you another argument just now. if you want, maybe you can try that and they will accept it ^^

Well if you read from here p/6002818 until the end, you'll notice that we said everything we could to keep the pattern, but it didn't convince the like 3 persons who complained about it and to be honest I'm really tired of arguing with people about it, since we discussed it too much, even I explained to Irre before it was even bubbled: p/5988334

and yeah, I really love my map and I want it to be ranked, after all the work I did for it, so I just decide to change it.
posted
yeah, i read that. many of the QAT seem to not understand that how easily the patterns play is exactly the same thing as if the pattern makes sense... really stupid. why is exaggerated spacing bad? because it's too hard to play and thus does not reflect the song. but if it plays well then it does reflect the song, and there is no problem, it doesn't matter at all what the distance spacing number on the top right says. the only QAT who said anything good was mao...

but well, since you've decided to change it that's okay. the pattern you have now works anyway. good luck :)

I fell in love with the map when it got qualified and when updating just now I right away noticed the side to side/back and forth jumps are gone from the hardest difficulty.I came here to comment that but I see it's a big issue here somehow... The jumps played absolutely fine and were super fun + gave the difficulty that unique ''something I remembered strongly after the first play'' -thing to it.

.. but nuuu it has to be changed to something literally every map has because reasons lulz

I hope this map gets ranked soon anyhow, it totally deserves it. This is such an amazing mapset Natsu! Well done!

The offset of every map in this set is fucked up. Everything's about one tick ahead of the music.
nvm

Rebubble since discussion has wrapped up and all 3 QAT's associated with this discussion have given the green light to rebubble now. Sorry I wasn't able to participate in this discussion, was quite busy irl. But I'm glad it got resolved without too much drama.

Let's goooooooo finally

I'm glad that everything has been resolved now. So, since all QATs that were involved in the discussion are okay with the set, and the things were addressed by the Mapper, this should be good to go now.

We've changed some hitsounds through the difficulties to make them consistent, due that some of them were missed.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I spoke with Mao a bit during the whole thing, and from that discussion he said:
16:38 Mao: Something I want to clarify again is that the only actual QAT action in the thread was the disqualification in order to halt the ranking process so that we can discuss the issues that were addressed without rushing it
16:38 Mao: everything a QAT posted in there is their own opinion
16:38 Mao: which isn't worth more than any other opinion in the thread
16:39 Mao: nobody ever said that we force Natsu to do this
16:39 Mao: he can just find 2 more BNs and get it requalified
but from the way both of you write your posts, it seems like the QAT's opinions are indeed held higher than anyone else in the discussion. It might not be the case, it might not be supposed to be the case, it might be a misunderstanding between BN/QAT, or something else, but I just wanted to point it out since the impression I get from BNs and what Mao told me seems to not really match up.

Also, grats on the requalification!
