About me:
Hey, I'm 27 and although my scores are appalling I've actually been playing pretty much every day of my 12-13 years here. I found this place after several Google searches for "DDR for your hands" and, after a little while playing SAGMD (and later the sequels) I ended up here; the rest is history.
I spend a lot of time on Twitch, streaming with soggyTissu3. I knit, I play rhythm games, I love delving into unfiction projects. I also really enjoy a good otome game...
Fav Music:
Varied and misc... I listen to a lot of YouTube artists, because I'm more likely to leave YouTube on in the background than the radio. I love visual K and follow artists such as The Gazette and Miura Ayme.
Fav Movies:
Lilo & Stitch, Mulan, Rocky Horror Picture Show. There's quite a few others I could do word for word and you I still don't think I'd consider them favourites, more like scraps left over from my childhood.

On the 5th of July 2022, after 13.24 years I *finally* became a veteran player! In true Diddley fashion I did so while getting the last AAA I needed to clear the -Easiest- category because I'm nothing if not consistent in my mediocrity :3

Gonna try and keep a log of plays this year so I know what happened once I look back on it again next year.

So this year Ii am in division 1.5, the merged D1&2 for this year.

The R1 track is Space Doggity and I genuinely choked more than once because I got too emotional... This song makes me sad and whoever decided it was our play is mean!

So, after a few tears and much sad I managed to clear the track on the first day after just 59 plays (I know the amount of times I play a track surprised a few people last year, I've come to think of myself as a persistence hunter).

FC'd the D3 track Decadence but doubt I'll score much better on it within the week.

Lessons I learnt during OT14

So, as I see myself about to leave the tournament wile I sleep tonight I kinda felt like reflecting on the things I've actually learnt during this years tournament, almost as a reminder to myself for the next time we go round.

1. You are a better judge of your own skill than anyone else's predictions!

After seeing how the rest of the division performed during round 1 I am about to exit the tournament in exactly the round I thought I would. I thought that maybe I was over inflating my own ego when I compared my personal predictions with those people shared in the predictions thread but think I'll trust my own judgement more in future now.

2. Setting personal targets outside of the tournament is incredibly useful.

I set my sites not on winning or getting any specific scores but on A) making it past round 4, which is where I dropped out last year, and B) finishing better than a specific player that I knew played very similarly to me last tournament, as a marker for self improvement, and that seems to have done me a world of good. Watch out Dan, if we're in the same division next year, you've just become the prime *one to beat* target for me then.

3. How raw goods actually work and just how useful they are as a metric.

So it seems daft for someone who has been kicking around here as long as I have to have only just taken the time to figure out what the heck "raw goods" actually is and how it's used; what can I say, when I play for myself I'm an FC kind of player.

4. I am a far better player than I was last year (and even 3 months ago).

Last year I struggled to FC anything over a 25, this year I AAA'd that and found myself comfortable playing tracks in the 40's; when the tournaments over I need to keep the momentum to build on that even further.

5. Trust your hands, they recognise patterns before your eyes do.

There have been multiple tracks that I've looked at this year and thought "I can't read that!" but once my hands have given it a go they've taken over, recognising familiar patterns at unfamiliar speeds.

So with so much new knowledge gained I'm far more comfortable than I perhaps should be with having gotten *so close* to the last round but not having made it. I'm sure there's more but those are the main points that seem to be sticking in my mind. If anybody happens across these weird introspections, are there any specific lessons you've learnt this year?

My first AAA of OT14

you'd have thought that after 554 attempts it would have been Asgore but no, after just 282 plays I finally AAA cleared Mercy. Finally feel like I'm waking up in the tournament. I might not be able to beat you Fireo but I'm sure as hell gonna chase you as hard as I can :) Good luck in the tournament everyone!
