Someone's got an AAA on this already, so I think the competition is going to be tight on this one as the week progresses =/


I'm down to a clean 4g run for now and I think I'll leave it at that, but not sure how long I can do that for. Only time will tell.

This is a hard song for me to PA - and apparently everyone else as well. There hasn't been any AAAs throughout this whole time.

I got an 8g 1boo run and I can't beat it.

[EDIT]

It happened, the thing that I thought I had overcome. I got angry and started thumping my keyboard because I kept messing up on this song. I think it was more so that everything seems so much more laggy now and I was starting to get nervous.

[EDIT]

7g clean run - that's the best I can do for now - should be enough to get me through tbh. What a frustrating song to PA.

[b]Round 5 - Cold Heart[/b]

[b][u]Day 1[/b][/u]: So the previous day I had warn myself out playing a lot of FFR and got a couple of nice scores but my hands were not feeling good after it which conerned me about how I would play today. My hands are having trouble with warming up and being loose for some reason and I think it's because of too much playing lately. Anyways my sightread on Cold Heart was 6-0-0-1 and all the goods were outside of the wall lol. After that I could even come close to SDGing the song again because I kept screwing up the wall and I have major issues with the [24]444 jacks that repeat a lot during the song which is SUPER ANNOYING. Eventually I got a 3-0-0-0 run by getting 3 goods before the wall and then AAAing the rest of the file which I ended up doing twice both on mirror and non-mirror. Got the second 3 goods run on vid. I tried to adjust my speedmod up from 1.7x to 1.75x to see if that would help but I think it only helped a tiny bit. From the looks of the scoreboard though this will more than likely be my last round because I can't do that first half of the file before the wall. Atleast I was able to AAA Pants and Accelerator today I guess :/

[color=green]Current Score - 3-0-0-0 (54 restarts)[/color]
[color=red]Score Needed - TBD[/color]

round 1: truth (xkore remix)
the first two times i played this i was seizing up due to nerves
restarting my laptop and calming down did the trick

round 2: a yodeler in texas
was still playing with my laptop's kb at this point so this took a while to AAA
i BF'd on the same note near the end of the song three times (including twice in a row)

i switched to my mech in the days after AAAing this and oh god did it show
it led to Teh Urn Day, when i AAA'd sleep (sightreading half of it) and blind AAA'd gunkienen immediately after

round 3: blue
more mech powah showed when i got the first AAA on this
my sightread was hilariously bad rofl (16-0-0-3)

i should get into the state of my laptop now
in the weeks before the tournament when i was farming plays to enter, my computer crashed three times in as many days while playing ffr
i traced this back to an intel utility which i updated, but that didn't fix my problem entirely
now i can expect my laptop to flash either white or gray about, say, half an hour into a playing session, followed by an increase in frame dropping
eventually ffr will enter a weird softlock where the applet turns black or gray but is otherwise still functional (i managed to grab a screencap from it once and it looked completely normal)
now, it was still playable at first- the glitch happened to me on Teh Urn Day after i played gunkienen
however, after a huge installation a couple weeks ago, ffr started frame dropping much more frequently
i am considering a system wipe to fix this problem but obligations for a project mean i can't risk it now
fortunately, this didn't affect me too much at first...

round 4: exclusive utopia
this was more zzz-worthy than truth
however, i noticed that the constant frame dropping was making it a lot harder to read files like 2-9 with unpredictable, non-constant rhythms
combine that with a key in my setup for the first four rounds showing signs of dying not 10 minutes before midnight, and, well.....

round 5: accelerate+djentrap

Round 5 D2 10th Official
Everyone else is doing one so why not...
So far every round has been an easy AAA.
This round will take a little work. I got the Blackflag with a bit of luck, but two trouble spots, around note 180 and another towards the end will make it tough to AAA it all the way through. D2 has been spoiled so far with short songs, 2:25 still isn't too bad, but its longer than I prefer. Anyways, back to the song I guess. It's not the best tune, but at least its not Poison of the Earth.

UPDATE:
Got the AAA.
Good luck to everyone else.

The progress... I see it
So I FC'd my first 70+ song (70 in this case), and it's safe to say the improvement I've seen over the last few weeks and even the last month is amazing. Hopefully once I hit a plateau I don't get discouraged and I can push through it to see what I can actually do.

Just in case
you wonder why my 3a count is basicly not rising, well, I play this game for fun only, not to be 1st or something, 3a will happen maybe.. sometimes.. on good winds :D FC is enough for me... ... ... for now >:D
Well, still grandtotal Nr.1 with frigin 21 AAA's would be hilarious :D (k thats too much in future.)

A rare thought about FFR
Today I started giving a little more than a slight shit about my stats and played a bunch of songs that I didn't already know. Slowly, I've cleared through all the songs I was ranked below 100,000 on, and played the few that were between 85k and 100k. At first, I was gonna clear everything below 50k (which is... a handful), but right now I'm tired af and want to sleep for a few hours before I wake up again for the WORLD MOTHERFUCKIN' SERIESSSSSSSSSS, thank christ i don't work tonight.

truth be told, i probably could've finished, but instead i spent like a half-hour with the visuals. i couldn't get myself to tolerate any of the arrows besides the originals, but LOOK! MY COLORS ARE PRETTY!

i'm lame

Anyway... problem that I keep having with FFR is that I'm always lagging. Always lagging just enough to make me hit a Good when it should be Perfect. And it really pisses me off. Even worse is when I lag so hard for a few seconds that I actually miss completely, such as this massive waste of time.
[img]http://i.imgur.com/UdsQHCf.png[/img]

A lot of the songs I had to play were in the Rock genre, 'cuz I reeaaaaallly never felt like playing beginner songs over 2 minutes. Actually, I still don't. But this time I was obligated. I think I AAA'd one of them. Wow.

[img]http://i.imgur.com/ECLPRmi.png[/img]
And remember... most of these songs are below 15 in difficulty. Definitely in my range. But NOPE. Internet has other plans. I sorta tried Velocity for a little, but didn't do anything for me. If anything, I actually played worse. Was getting like twice as many goods as perfects. ?__?

Yeah, idk. If anyone reading this has suggestions on how to remedy this atrocity, that'd be splendid. If not, maybe I just won't get fully into this game, since I can't be the best I could possibly be. (weeps)
