I was very doubtful I'd join this official because I haven't seriously played in a few months but I just signed up today. I'm guessing I'll be placed in D3 but we'll see xD Hopefully I can skillboost back to my old skill level again and maybe reach the halfway mark (That's my goal anywho)At the moment I think my skill is low D2, and my stamina/speed is horrible. Really need to work to gain it back.
EDIT: The FFR addiction is all consuming... I think I'm going to regret this when I have college work lol
Round 1: Reading for Days (42) AAA
Only played this file 2 times, first time i lagged a little bit. I was kind of nervous before playing because the preview for the song seemed a lot harder than it really was. Really great file though Xiz! Glad I got this round out of the way, now back to study/photoshop and work :3
Round 2: Exogenesis (51) 3-0-0-2
Finally managed to get a pretty clean score on this. I really love the song choice but Xiz why you gotta add in the 1 hand parts ;~; After practicing on it with some 100 restarts I finally got the patterning down, still tripped up a little bit but I'm happy with my improvement. At least I beat loop, that's all I care about ;) (Unless he sees this and improves his score)
Round 3: Aishiteru Yo Ne (57) 7-1-0-4
I'm happy with this score, I don't see myself improving anytime soon especially with my laptop broken now so I'll gladly stick with this. The most trouble I had with the file is the one handed purple parts on normal. I can AAA them on mirror but don't do so well on the purple pink jacks going down/up afterwards. I think had I practiced that more I could've done a bit better.
Round 4: Nintendon't (59) 2-0-0-0
I reallly like this song way much more than the last round, maybe it just caters to my skills a little better but I feel Aishiteru was a bit harder and they should've switched last round with this round. I think I can definitely AAA this but my hands got so shaky near the end I was forcing myself to play through. I'll possibly try in a little while again.
Round 5: ORIENTAL SEA!!! (64) 35-4-4-6
Didn't have the time to practice this ~_~ The jumps I split on so bad, and that end trilling... wat
Well I had a lot of fun and I managed to reach my goal which was to place further than I did last official so I'm happy =] I just wish I could've taken loop down too, props for doing well!
