Finally, the sheer weight of accrued low difficulty files has overcome years of rust and neglect, and I have reached my 1100th AAA. Or so the side bar claims. My profile still says 1098, so...I'll probably update this once I reach *that* particular variation on 1100.

If I sound less enthusiastic than in previous milestone posts, it's primarily because this represents a very different situation. Previously, these AAA thresholds were at least in part an indicator of progression. Now, I'm worse than I've been in a very long time. Until a week ago, I hadn't played at all since the last tournament, and the layoff shows. My efforts at derusting have been less effective than in the past.

And yet, I'm sort of at peace with that. My peak in FFR, meager though it might have been, came at a time when I was pouring an enormous amount of effort, daily, into the game. I won't say that I'll never get back to that point. FFR is still fun, and in coming back to it once more, I'm enjoying myself. But if I don't reach my previous heights, my struggles to get there have given me a greater appreciation for what I had accomplished. It's very easy to become discouraged by comparison to the many talented players in this community. Strangely, by struggling badly to play through files I've AAAed in the past, I've found a greater measure of pride in what I did back then.

Now if only I could actually de-rust, this could start sounding less like an obituary. :P

EDIT: My 1100th AAA (per the bar) was Claiomh Solais.

I knew this was coming right after the last one! It feels a bit anticlimactic, but I've reached 900 public AAAs, part of my now 1002 total perfect files.

The 900th AAA was Atmosphere. At the time of this post, it is still rated 0 for the tournament--but I was the first person to ever AAA it, so there's that. :) In terms of personal progress, my skill isn't back to where it was before my last break, but I'm slowly getting there. Hopefully I don't just throw it all out the window again.

In the past, when I've done these AAA updates, I've used public files only, since they appear more readily on my profile. But this is such a significant personal milestone that I feel like I have to make a post.

The 1000th AAA of all kinds was CHERRY DOLL. I suppose it's fitting that I barely managed to avoid being bmah'ed at the end of the file. I've taken breaks here and there from FFR, and I'm not at my personal peak, however meager it was. But hopefully I'll build back to and past it as I continue to play. :)

That took a while. But in my defense, I took two long breaks from FFR! My 800th public AAA was "Eternal Excavation." I don't feel like I'm quite where I was at when I left off toward the end of last year, but I'm working my way back, and I've improved a lot since my return.

Just what it says on the tin. I finally AAAed Guitar vs Piano, the last sub-40 file remaining for me. At this point (excluding the 0s and Token Whore), my lowest remaining un-AAAed file is a 43. So I consider that a triumph of consistency and persistence, if not skill. :P

Yeah, you should definitely step more stuff. I'd like to try it out myself, but I don't really have any idea what I'm doing, so it might be a while. :P
