Play every osu! beatmap in existence on Insane mode and then you'll have some godlike finger speed.

Going to ask this here because it would make no sense to make a new topic for it:

Do you think that having hypermobile joints and cracking your knuckles all the time can have adverse effects on streaming speed, because I just can't do fast streams even if I have been training streams for like 8 months.

BUT AT LEAST I CAN DO FUNNY THINGS WITH MY FINGERS

You should practice your single finger's speed first.Without high single finger's speed you can't play any map which have high bpm,so your ability on play streams will have not enough practice :)

- Play insane streamy song until hand feels like breaking
- Don't play osu! for a day or however long it takes for your hand to recover
- Come back stronger then ever
- Repeat
(results not guaranteed though, in theory this should work :p)
sort of reminds me of super saiyan on Dragon Ball Z on how they can "almost" die and then heal and become a lot more powerful afterwards

also a nice way is to play maps that are way too hard for you, and then go back to a map that had too fast streams but is slower than what you played before, for me it always seems a bit easier then.

I have bought a new keyboard lately, not a mechanical one, but one with high keys, unlike my previous flat keyboard, I feel like streams are going better, but I still cannot follow 175+bpm streams. It goes like: 300-300-300-300-100-100-50-50 followed by mistimed hits.
I've been doing the stream compilation a lot, but I always fail at the first Marisa song.

If I watch how Cookiezi does his streams, it`s way more aberrant than how I do it, he mostly uses one finger, but if long streams come, he uses his other finger along with it. To know what I really mean you should watch this:

My hand refuses to move like this, unfortunately.

I fail on that first marisa song too. Thing is, I passed that song a few times before too. Either I hit the stream near perfectly, or hit half of it then miss the rest :/

I usually can stream 200bpm streams but i cant do well on long streams like Cry of eternity or Revolution deathsquad (Deathstream rape)
-> 300 300 300 100 100 50 50 X X X X X

Well, My tip would be to play stream maps.

i know how you feel :(

Play Taiko specific maps on relax, and configure your keys to your standard keyboard keys.
Should improve streaming a lot.

It's not really about the max speed that's the issue I think, atleast not for me.
I have serious problems staying onbeat on low and high bpm streams (streams longer than, lets say 12 notes or so). ;x;
Even though my max streaming speed is quite fast.

Practicing every day though, hopefully I get used to it. (not being a keyboard player is also a big minus, I'm a mouse clicker, only stream on keyboard ;x;)

This. I'm not sure if I'm hypermobile, but my index finger phalanges does bend 90 degrees or something. Is that some kind of bane? Some people has the power to tackle 200 bpms even when they were playing first time.

i'm ranking dt that i couldn't even pass before atm. and i didn't play osu a lot these past 2months.
Best idea ever. I did the exact same and it had the exact same effect.

Well, depending on the person's background, it varies.
I am pretty sure since this is a music game (or rhythm game, whichever works) I bet some musicians or players from other rhythm games are playing this, having some experience in button mashing.
