Title.for improving reading under ar9, try playing old maps (2009~2010) it helped me a lot.
Im not talking about reading high ars.
"Play more" posts will be ignored, in 100h my reading didnt improve anything
when i first tried old maps i couldn't even read the 2star hard or normal difficulty properly.
I was able to fc a lot of 5* maps but it was just too hard. the map looked so easy but slow approach rate was so confusing.
I just tried again and again. (sometimes with memorizing) spending over 30 minutes for retrying 3* maps to get fc..
so stupid way but after few months i got skills to read ar6 and play ezdt
if you are stuck at some patterns, memorize it and try to read again.
