Main page: Ranking Criteria
For the record, these include the recent changes made from the discussion forum. Any rule that is being discussed is listed here as it used to be and will be updated once the discussion reaches an agreement.
All rules are exactly that: rules. They are not guidelines and may not be broken under any circumstance.
Considering most keyboards use USB connections which do not allow 7 simultaneous presses, we make this rule to help more people enjoy the game. The end of hold notes are an exception, because they are released and not pressed.
Guidelines are important and should be followed in most maps. However, they are not rules, so they may be broken in special cases. If you want to break a guideline, ask yourself this, "Does what I'm about to do make sense? Is it more fun to play like this compared to sticking to the guidelines?" If you answer yes to both these questions, then it is probably okay.
9-10 when using mainly notes and just a few amount of holds
7-8 when using a mix a balanced notes and holds
5-6 when using mostly holds
