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.
