I'm pretty sure all of my friends dropped osu! after around a week of me telling them about the game, or don't know about it at all. And here's me - I'm playing for about 9 months, and have no intention of dropping the game at any point soon.
I'd love to meet someone irl who plays the game regularly, unlike everyone else up until now.
Probably most of my good friends know what the game is, half of those don't care and also call it a weeb game, the other half don't like playing it or have better games to play.
Honestly, the guys who call it a weeb game are fucking judgemental dipshits and I'm pretty sure only one guy in that first half actually saw gameplay of it. Why I like about the other half of my friends more..
I got to know osu! from a then friend. I dont know if he still plays actually.
I know that I remember feeling like a hopeless case of aim-trash, when I started and he was so much better lol.
So yeah my now friends know that i play a rhythm game, called osu!. Some of them I watched me stream a few times. My boyfriend knows that I play osu, and he thinks I am crazy.
I almost made him try... but then he was like "nope...pls dont...honey, pls dont" xD
Because I know how frustrating it is to have friends so much better than yourself, I would never force someone to try it. Thou' if they want to, I am a happy spectator. It's so f....iretrucking cute!
One day before the class, me and my classmates spotted somebody playing osu!mania. Before I could say anything one of them just started to babbling about osu! and I was actually surprised that somebody knew it. Here comes the funny part. He said he played on osu!standard and was actually pro or something like that. He told us how difficult the game is. Then he picked his laptop and started showing off his skill on 3*. He was like 'it may seems easy but it is actually super duper difficult'. So he asked us to try and we did, except me.
Later that day in the cafetaria my friends got really hooked up. They kept pushing me to try it. Instead, I picked my laptop and my tablet and just started pulling of easy 5* jumps and streams. That one friend of mine was like 'damn, you are pro boi' and i said 'no. you just suck mate'
one of them actually snipped my rank just in 4 months
