I have been placed in D7 cuz I'm D7 I guess. Anyway Let's do this, and hopefully derust as much as possible before finals.

Round 1: Inferno of Fomalhaut - AAA
We start this tournament with an alright file consisting of about every type of pattern known by people who play this thing a lot. The beginning OHT wasn't much of a problem, but I got stuck for a bit on the 2nd orange burst. Then the dubstep drop had a few jacks that didn't look that bad but I kept slipping on for some reason. Ending polyrhythmic section felt a bit weird, but the absolute killer in this song was the ending jacks on which I choked 3 times then stopped. Tried again the next day, choked 2 more times on them and eventually got the AAA after yelling at my heart to stop beating fast (cuz it makes my hands shake). I'm off to a good start.

Round 2: The Glorious (Final Sketch Remix) - AAA
I legit have no clue how I AAAed this one so quickly. It is pretty fast but definitively not as awkward as Inferno of Fomalhaut was. Song was awesome and the file is one of the few jack files I actually enjoyed. Not much else to say other than good luck for all.
I then tried the D8 file and that one also felt a bit easier than G e n g a o z o. I'm not entirely sure why we both got early breaks, but perhaps it is in reserve for something really hard on next round? I also kinda feel bad for D6 who got a really hard file for their division... Oh well, to round 3 we go.

Round 3: HeadXplit - 6-0-1-0
Before I started raging and grinding this ultra awkward and mindblockable file, I should have asked one very important question : are tournament scores cumulative or does only the current round count? Turns out it was only the current round. Man I HATE myself for grinding this! I'm usually good with jumpstreams but I bet you the ones that you find in this file are enough to make IcyWorld cry. I did expect round 3 to bring a tough file, but I expected AT LEAST something enjoyable, not something that no one in D7 can hit without mindblocks. No offense towards you, gold stinger, but my god what have you done... :(

Round 4: Chronomia - 2-0-0-0
Not a AAA but I'll take that. Didn't grind it as much as HeadXplit under fear of mindblocking it. There was only a few transitions that were difficult, one being the 24th into handstream, and 2 of them are near the end of the 2nd jumpstream. Despite being a faster file, it felt easier than HeadXplit cuz everything was much less awkward and mindblockable than HeadXplit. I also thought it would screw D7 over just because of the DarkZtar memes haha. File was alright, hopefully the next ones won't fall onto HeadXplit's level.

Round 5: Vantablack - 11-2-1-1 (RIP)
No. Just no. No one has ever told me how to get a good score on a file without grinding it (grinding leads to mindblocks). I don’t think I’ve EVER HATED A FILE THIS MUCH. For fucks sake man, 4 minutes, lots of filler, extremely awkward bursts and the entire thing is mindblockable in less than 10 attempts. I seriously need to know one thing : how the hell do the top players in tourney get good on this? I dont want to insult TC_Halogen here, but imo this is the worst file in the game. I’m almost glad I didn’t film any of the moments I played this, because I raged really hard. I treated HeadXplit too harshly it seems, because this file is just... I don’t know what else to say at this point.

« It’s a tournament. The files are supposed to be challenging » Thats correct, but you are forgetting the ENJOYMENT part. If you actually enjoy playing files that you can’t do because they are mega awkward and mindblockable, then it’s fine, but I’m not one of those people.

I really hope next year’s tournament will take in consideration the enjoyment factor as much as the difficulty factor. No need to decrease difficulty at all, but I can’t with mindblockable files.
