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...)

  1. gl!

  2. get it :3
