It's been a loong time since I've done one of these but.. with what's potentially my last OT for a while, I figured why not do a blog on it for old time's sake? As always, the goal is to get top 8. With the introduction of the 8th division and the players inside, this is easily gonna be a much bigger challenge to achieve than previous OTs, but it's definitely worth a try.

So, without further ado...

Bracket: Godly (Division 8)

Round 1 - G e n g a o z o (2-0-0-0)
The preview made this look way harder than it actually is haha. Attempted the first half cold and it was fairly easy; the only thing that causes a problem are the trills in between the 32nd streams, but otherwise this should be an easy AAA when I wake up and get a bit warmer (currently almost 6am as I type this).
Edit #1: Gave it several attempts before work and managed to squeeze out a 2g run that could've easily been the AAA. Tried it some more afterwards with no luck, but this should keep me safe while I take a quick break for a few days (I've been playing waay too much this past week lol).
Edit #2: Well I stand completely corrected about an "easy AAA". The stream-trill transitions have killed every single one of my runs (which is probably well over 100 by now); the furthest I've gotten with a AAA is about halfway through the final stream (around 2500 notes in?). Might just wait until I'm actually in danger instead of trying to grind.

Round 2 - Brrrreeed Cicadididi (AAA)
Thank god I wasn't forced to AAA R1... taking a quick look at this file right before work, it looks like it's right up my alley. Excited to try it out!
Edit #1: Yep, like I thought it was fairly easy for me to AAA. Took me about 3 attempts... the main difficulty comes from controlling the bursts which is made even more difficult because of OT nerves but I powered through it using the advanced breathing technique Hamon. Onwards to Round 3! (P.S. there'll probably be a lot of AAAs this round by D8...)

Bracket: Guru (Division 6)

Round 1 - Le carnaval des animaux, Movement no. 14 ”Finale” (1-0-0-0)
The beginning trills aren't a problem for me but I keep mindblocking the first burst and it's crippling. If it becomes AAA or die I'm screwed...

Round 2 - Diamante Spectrasplosion (AAA)
There were minijacks on my left hand and my left hand was dead, and the bursts were awkward. But I changed my spread and isolated the bursts and eventually got the AAA. Next.

Round 3 - Kanon (1-0-0-0)
Pretty light file: for me, the easiest so far. But I keep on messing up around 1200 combo, for some reason that I can't describe. It's either the trills that feel off are the handjacks that messes me up, but I'll get it eventually.
Edit #1: Or not. I guess I'll just chill with my blackflag since I'm way above the cutoff anyways

Round 4 - The Scales of Strangeness (2-0-0-0)
They weren't kidding when they said the difficulty would increase this round, huh... nothing in the file is a problem for me except for the ending streams; those are quite the PA killers. It's not that I lack the speed; I lack the consistency. Which means the best I can probably do is probably around 4g. But hey, rounds last a week so you never know.
Edit #1: Got 2g clean after playing some hard files on FFRMania. Pretty happy about that; should be safe until the next round. But oh man, there's been talk about D6 having potential to be AAA or die...

Skilldropped, probably going to get wiped out next round. Also Fractured Sunshine obtained.

Round 5 - Maybe All This Time I Was Wrong (2-0-2-1)
Heh, of course there's jumpjacks in weirdass places... mirror makes it worse so I'll have to make it work somehow
Edit #1: The darn jacks 560 notes in are killing me! Let's just see where this score takes us for now.
Edit #2: Well I got pushed down to 7th place overnight. Started getting scared so I hurried to improve my score. Got 2-0-2-1, with a stupid miss during some easy trills that cost me a tie with AutotelicBrown(who is currently 4th). Currently 6th.
Edit #3: The jacks 560 notes are no longer a problem. Now it's the jacks at around 1300 notes that's troubling me since far left jacks are bad for me.
Edit #4: hope I don't get sniped
Edit #5: Aaand I got sniped. Played for 2 hours trying to get out of the pisswater but I give up. Good luck to the top 8.

9th place
I was hoping to get vROFL this year(Don't even know why I want it so much) but it looks like I don't deserve it yet. I would say "Oh well, maybe next year" but I'm certain I'll be placed in D7 for any tourney from now but... we'll see. At least I finished in a single-digit place, eh? EDIT: Whenever I think about how much better I could've been it infuriates me. I'm gonna train my ass off for next year so I can make it up for myself.
I'll just ghost from now.

Round 6 - Wizdomiot (2-0-1-0)
Not much to say about this file except that keeping up can be difficult at times. Gotta say though, it was amazingly stepped.

Round 7 - Epileptic Crisis (14-1-2-4)
Oh my god, if I were still in I would definitely be going out with this one. I rarely hit those 12th jumpjacks and the bursts are fun, but it leaves no room for error. The music is pretty cool though. On another note, the D5 song is stupid hard for me.

Round 8 - Odd22 (23-0-6-5)
Woooo, way more intense file than Epileptic Crisis. Speed requirement is meh, but the transitioning just makes it all so hard along with the stamina needed to even finish the file. The music is...odd.

I used to have an older Dell keyboard, recently decided to make the switch to a good mechanical. My primary keyboard is a Corsair K95 Plat with Cherry MX Brown switches, but I was hoping to get a more portable, compact keyboard to play FFR on regularly so I don't wear out the K95. I don't have the issue with the K95, but I have it plugged into USB 3.0 ports on my PC whereas the Magicforce was plugged into one of my monitor ports.

thx my dude :)

I'm US-based so that's no big deal - my problem is that I seem to get delay using it but it might be a USB port thing. I was hoping to have a strong enough connection via the available ports so I didn't have to use a USB 3.0 but I definitely can tell a difference using my normal keyboard vs the Magicforce that goes beyond "adjusting to the kb". I'll play with it some more I guess with different ports. Thank you!

I deleted the comment like an idiot - you said you use the Magicforce kb, right? Did you have to change any settings to use it fully?
