16th Official FFR Tournament
Posted on: July 1, 2023, at 03:26:26pm   [4 comments]
yoyoyo, this is the one that really matters. Now that im in D7, competition is alot more steep and I will have to step my game up. Im going against monsters like Deamerai, Hayden, Klarion, Zenith, TheTrueXfish, Eppu, SK8R43, goldstinger, etc. I got just within reach of top 3 last tournament, being knocked out at 4th place. My goal this tournament is to win or atleast get top 3, but im doubtful. Im hoping for a major skillboost that will get me there, but we'll just have to see.



Round 1: The End of Dreams (AAA)

Got the AAA after 2 attempts. Nearly dropped a good in the last 30 notes which was nerve racking but I still got it anyway.



Round 2: Angel’s Salad (0-0-0-1)

Managed to get a 2g 1b fluke score that i was trying to improve for a few days. Gave up then decided to do the file after a skillboost session on Etterna and got a booflag. After all of the attempts I did on this file, im happy with this.



Round 3: A Battle I Absolutely Can’t Lose ~ Kill the Nyanko (0-1-0-3)

Got this score during one of my first attempts just to see the entire file, tried it a few more times then put it off for another day. I picked the file up again a day or so later then managed to mindblock the [24][34][24] pattern. I gotta get my shit together for next round or I might be left in the dust by Deamerai lol.



Round 4: Nhlev (4-0-0-0)
It was around this round or so that I started getting some huge self-doubt about my abilities and comparing myself to others. I kept getting bullshit misses and I was constantly misreading patterns. Oh well, in the end I managed to only get 4 goods on this so its whatever.



Round 5: Illegal Trap (3-0-0-1)

Got 6-0-0-3 around my first attempts and decided to put the file down. I then picked it back up around 4 days later and managed to fuck up the D7 Elimination line down to 3.6 Raw Goods.



Round 6: O Wings that Embrace Senju Banmei (2-0-1-1)

The score I got on this still surprises me, considering that it's nearly better than my Round 5 score and was done on a file that seemed intimidating at first glance. The beginning is somewhat mindblockable and plays almost like a repackaged Shinderu, while the rest of the file contains tricky jumpstream, handstream, and bursts. I managed to cop the score within 8 tries.



Round 7: VIS::CRACKED [Another] (18-0-3-6)

On my first attempts at this I couldn't even get myself to see the file to the end. The first half of the file relies heavily on awkward speed sections that require you to put your full attention on the reading aspect of it, even having a left hand minijack around 980 arrows in. The second half is even more absurd, the breaks have awkwardly timed trills that I found myself dumping up to 4 goods on in my first attempts. After those, it throws a short section of repeated handstream patterns with bursts in between each pattern. It gives you a breather before presenting the final section of the file which is a rainbow puke colored speed nightmare that seems really bad until you realize how simple and rolly it really is in reality. The file ends with a hybrid of the last section with easier jumpstream

All of this is to say that I struggled with this file on my first attempts, not even being able to finish it initially. So I put the game down to return to another day, and the next day I decided to warm up with more speed-oriented files on Etterna to prepare myself for it. All I did on FFRs end was turning off my Halved noteskin and putting it on Mirror and I managed to get this score in 2 tries, totaling 10 attempts total and solidifying me a near guaranteed 3rd place finish. On to the Grand Finals...



Round 8: Braindead [14-0-8-5]

I honestly stopped caring about what score I got this round mainly because whatever I got I would still be getting a guaranteed 3rd place score, and I knew that I wouldn't be beating Deamerai in 2nd anytime soon lmfao.



In conclusion:


I honestly couldn't believe I got top 3 this year, considering the bouts in motivation I had throughout this tournament and how it didnt even feel like I was playing at my best most of the time. I didn't even have the confidence to make it to the finals at first, so this was a major accomplishment for me and felt like a crazy upset. HUGE thanks to everyone who supported me in the tournament and delt with my highly critical self-depricating attitude, and thanks to the tournament organizers for putting this awesome tournament together!

FFR Spring 2023 Tournament
Posted on: March 25, 2023, at 01:13:16am   [5 comments]
So FFR decided to do something that was kinda out of left field in my opinion and do an officially sanctioned Spring tournament that I guess acts as a prelude to the 16th Official Tournament that's gonna come later in Summer. This tourney basically forced me to get back into FFR and get accustomed to the game again. I've improved a ton since I last was into FFR as I'm currently 27/28 MSD in Etterna. So apperantly because of this, the FFR event organizers (mainly Layla) decided to place me into Divison 7 because of my etterna scores (that I never expected them to actually be following lol). I am happy to technically *be* in D7 but I still dont really have that much faith in myself to be honest. There's potentially a lot of eyes on me from the community so my only goal is to not to fail the tournament horribly like last time. enough with the long intro though, Stay focused, stay alive boys.



Round 1: Black Lotus [91] (1-0-0-2):

I was getting around 5 goods consistently due to the middle of the file, Then I turned on mirror then settled for this score after 3 tries. The funny part about this is that I have a similar score to Syd07, a D6 player who also got put into D7, but with 1 extra good lol.



Round 2: Deadman DJ [92] (2-0-0-1):

At first, this file seemed intimidating due to the shitty beginning, but actually playing it and getting past the beginning made me realize that the file isnt even that bad. Its just a somewhat generic Venetian Snares breakcore file. It took me 8 tries to get a FC score. Next round.



Round 3: Delirium V2 [95] (8-1-1-8):

This file is a bit special in that it's one of the first files from the dump batch actually to be released onto FFR. Nevertheless, during my first attempts, I thought this file was just a total mess that I couldn't even describe. On my second day of trying, I still hated the file, but I realized that I would've liked the file if I wasn't playing it on FFR or for a tourney for that matter. I would probably enjoy the file for what it is, but playing it on FFR didn't feel good at all. My last attempt was a PB until I fucked it up then did this.

https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/730200737757266051/1093664230735106048/image.png

Onto round 4.



Round 4: Labyrinth -Labyrinth Lilith- [96] (11-0-1-1):

dont you just love it when you get your best score on FFR on a tourney file but it doesn't count because you were outside of the short ass 4 day timer to set scores on a file so your bad, damn near unfinished score is the one that gets set. yeah i love that.

fun file though



Round 5: Extratone Pirates (Drunk Optimus Remix) [98] (6-1-2-2):

did this after a skill boosting session on Etterna. Next round.



Round 6: This Is The End of Everything [100] (68-19-19-66)

This file isnt really hard until the ending part 1900 notes in.

I cant write, next round.



Round 7: Finding Her Not [101] (DNF)

I would've finished this round's file if there wasn't this annoying part near the end. I eventually gave up not only because I just couldn't do that part, but life stuff got in the way.



Round 8: Critical.Error [103] (72-2-21-17)

similar situation to Finding Her Not where I was gansta and holding a SDG until the ending part where it got really annoying to try to read and hit, this time though, i actually powered through.



Conclusion:

Division 7 was just a group suffering session lmao



15th Official FFR Tournament
Posted on: May 15, 2022, at 12:29:32pm   [3 comments]
It's that time of the year folks! The OT is right around the corner! This will be my first OT since I joined in the direct middle of OT 14 back in 2021. School is ending soon so I have more time to play. As of writing this, I'm level 86 in D6. My only goal is to take the Top 3 spot. Katana i'm rooting for you, plz win D5.

Round 1: NOW'S YOUR CHANCE TO BE A [[BIG SHOT]] (gomotion RMX) [AAA]

This took me exactly 37 retries. I already AAAed it on Etterna so idk why it took me this long.. I did it at like 9 PM and warmed up with etterna (like how god intended). and the entire chart felt pretty comfortable up until 600 notes in with the 4[34]4 motion. I rushed it so many times and nearly mindblocked it along with some stupid easy parts in the beginning. Im glad i got this lol. GG Goldstinger.

Round 2: Janus [Blackflag]

I got the flag about the first try then I tried to close out the AAA for the sole purpose of asserting dominance over Division 6 but unfortunately couldn't get it (only person this round to get the AAA is ststst). I tried the next day, and no AAA. after about 3 days of trying I just decided to give up and be happy with the 1 good. The file is the second jacky song that D6 has gotten in a row and I swear to god if we get another CJ or minijack file for R3 someones gonna feel pain. By day 3 of trying I had mindblocked a few parts of the song, mainly the rising action part that leads to the roll jumptrill and the gluts that come right after.

GG ace4evr.

Round 3 Previews: I usually won't write thoughts about the preview but this is an exception.

I'm not to fond about the fact that D6 has technically gotten 3 jack files in a row. First Big Shot, Then Janus, now this. Granted R3 is more light JS'y than minijack file like the first 2 rounds but there's still enough minijacks in the file and the ending section to say that the file leans alot into minijack territory. I kinda screwed myself over with Janus trying to get a AAA on it but that doesn't change thr fact that I'm just tired of minijack'y files at this point. D6 has historically gotten some weird-ass oddball file choices for OT's and I would've expected that to change this OT, with the other divisions not really getting as many "wtf" type choices in comparison (ok maybe). According to Klarion this tourney's R3 is the best out of them all but idk man. I know it's hard for GS and the other people behind the scenes to pick the best files and I understand that and that's why I'm not being too vocal about it, but I would have still preferred something vastly different than this.

/major salt

Round 3: Micro Media Broth [5-0-0-4]

Ok, this is worse than I thought. This isn't a "light JS file with jacks", this is blatantly a jack file and no one can tell me otherwise. Why in the world did we get 3 jack files in a row? This is just baffling to me and IDK why I seem to be the only person to have a problem with this.

Anyway, the actual file's quality is pretty good, 8/10 if you will. I somehow kept missing on 2 parts in the first 300 or so notes but I eventually got over it. the rest was just a breeze trying not to choke. I'll update if I manage to fluke a better score.

I'm just more confused on how and why we got 3 jack files in a row, 2 of them being GS files. I like GS's files and Psychotick's files too, but it's just seems lazy to me how similar all 3 rounds are. I don't even know what to say at this point.. just why??. Are the higher-ups running this genuinely too lazy to find files with good variety in sillsets that aren't made by the GM himself, or are they just purposely fucking with D6 in order to get a laugh out of people? If it's the latter then it's CLEARLY working. Good joke FFR.

/OMEGA salt

^ this man is MAD SALTY. Do NOT trust him at all.

Round 4: Sapling [3-0-0-0]

I actually really like this file. It is a somewhat bursty stream file, with 32nd streams thrown at you for a challenge. The streams are light but with enough minijacks sprinkled in to make the file easily mindblockable. After that, the easy part is a 24th light JS section, but not before another burst with tons of rolls and minijacks in it. After that, the file is essentially over. Sorry if this is a really bad explanation lmfao. It took me 8 tries before I got a score that I am satisfied with. Nicely done Skayles.

Round 5: PUPA [3-1-0-1]

The file wasn't too bad for me, people were complaining about the spike at the end but I got through it amazingly. I ended up with the #1 spot in D6 with 5 RG when the #2 RG was like 8. This blog isn't lookin too hot.

Round 6: Tanaka [10-0-0-4]

D7 was supposed to get this song earlier in their rounds but I guess D6 got it instead cause Goldstinger hates us!!!!

Anyway, Tanaka is one of those files that seem daunting but can be broken down easily. Most of the file is JS with speedy bursts thrown in, which is pretty manageable until you get to the 1-minute mark and the file throws a long jack section with streams and some 4-note flams at you. The difficulty isn't over yet as the file immediately goes into a short trilly 24th section before giving you a break. After the break, there is more easy bursty JS for around 40 seconds. When you get through that, you have to deal with the ending. The ending is an extremely awkward anchory white note stream that even has a jumptrill in between them, then the same 4 note roll flams from earlier make a return but now has left and right arrows in between the flams to distance them from each other, before ending with some easy trilly JS.

I would constantly rush the ending with these bootleg hi19hi19 looking ass streams even though I knew that the flams were even harder for me than the streams. I wanted to improve the score so badly and get first but I eventually settled with a mediocre 11 RG score in #2 behind Sploder12. This round didn't really feel that competitive (granted neither did the entire rest of the tournament for D6 lol). Round 7 is where it's really gonna heat up. All the big shots in D6 will have to fight to the death. So see you in Round 7.

Round 7: DIST SQUAD [50-5-10-8] ELIMINATED

Ima just start this part by saying that this file is a complete mess. The file's main difficulty comes from these busted ass rolls that have alternating left and right arrows in between them, and 48th trill bursts that you cant cheese by jumptrilling. The middle of the file has this disgusting and near-unreadable rolly 24th stream that also has stupid trills in between them. If you get through this then you have to go through what's essentially a repeat of the first half of the file. Not a fan of this file at all.

I didn't really get a chance to play Etterna or FFR during this round and when I did get a chance to play video games, I would work on beating my backlog instead of FFR. So I took the L and got eliminated at 4th place above Pyriz. The training ark starts now bois.


All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this OT. For being the first OT after the falling out Kayla had with the FFR community, and for being Goldstinger's first OT that he's hosted, I think he did pretty well (for the most part). However, this OT didn't really feel that competitive in D6 (except for the last 3 rounds lol), and the fact that we got 3 jack files in a row for the first 3 rounds is still baffling to me. On top of that, Heartbreak Furry Fandom is a very controversial topic in the FFR community right now and the fact that Goldstinger went into the discord and kinda doubled down on the file just didn't sit right with me and probably a lot of other people, considering WHY people are talking about it so much. All of this doesn't sound too bad until you realize that Goldstinger is the person solely responsible for picking the songs for each round. A bit embarrassing IMO.

It may sound like I'm just placing all of the blame on Goldstinger and just ragging on him, but to be real, he tried his best and did pretty good and I don't think that he deserves the harassment he's been getting in his DMs. I hope that he does less stupid shit and outdoes himself in OT 16, where I hopefully place in D7 and win.
