I took a notion for it last year and played pretty religiously between October - December, then stopped again. I'd rather play other video games now instead.

As for me?

Uh... think the last time I touched any form of arrow mashing was a month ago?

Or was it two?

I had a short burst beginning of the year, I know that much.

I play daily on smo, and i think all of you that are worried about the future activity of the sm comunity should at least play online, because even if you want to play alone, it makes other users percieve a sense of activity, and is cool to track scores. Twitch streams also help if you have a decent hardware.

Regarding stepmania subforums on ffr, it is true they are getting more inactive everyday, but i can see that because the forum format is maybe too oldfashioned, the activity was been splited into a great ammount to the discord chat i guess

And +1 to wafles and hi19hi19, the main problem is the online play, and to be fair, wafles did sml, which was a great thing for the community, even if it wasn't directly related to sm development.

I stopped playing years ago because it wasn't fun

I stopped stepping two years ago because it lost meaning

I can't pick either back up because everyone I knew is gone or doesn't play and the new people that took over I have nothing in common with

This game is great for music aficionados, but other than that, you won't see many casual players. If any. Osu! has that on lock. It's either people who are familiar with this scene and have a strong affinity towards music games in general, or people who are hardcore and actually give a damn about getting insane scores, CTS, and paying for expensive keyboards.

Me personally, I've reached a desirable skill level that I don't really have a drive to get better. Plus, playing with my finger style (ring+middle) puts a cap on that. If I played with normal spread, I'd lost interest even sooner. Not to say I don't get that "damn that was a nice score" feeling, it's moreso that I no longer get that "damn I could've done better" feeling. Sucks all motivation and dedication from the game when you don't even care if your score is trash. Once the incentive salience dissipates, you can pretty much uninstall the game at that point. Risks outweigh the rewards.

The only reason I still have it installed is because I still enjoy some older files that I like to experience again every once in a while. Xoon 5, couple of those FFRCPs, ODIPack 2+3, Red Fraction, Dark Chancellor, and PMPoE are the packs I consistently go back to, just to experience it again. No recent pack has done this for me aside from the Untitled pack, that was pretty dope. I feel even the steppers don't have much of a desire or motivation to create dope files to dope music anymore tho, and that's a tough pill to swallow when quality files are the backbone of this game. Also I sense a loss of creative spark in the files that I come across recently.

For example. (not trying to diss or anything) I think the last Yolomania had like, what, 200 submitters or something crazy like that? The reason being is that it's very broad of a pack. you can submit anything. Let your mind fly. depsite that, there ends up being a central commonality in the song choices and file structures. In a pack with no limits on what you can submit, very few files really stand out. Makes you wonder..

Also, 6key > 4key. but unfortunately no real contributions for that mode anymore. I just play my usual suspects and dip out for a few months.

I play stepmania 6key on and off on a semi-weekly basis. I have absolutely no interest in playing 4key anymore because in order to relate to ANYONE currently you're pretty much forced to play exclusively speed and stamina files—both skill sets I've never had to begin with, or had the motivational drive to improve. I could play for my own enjoyment, but I would only do so for X amount of time before I'm bored out of my mind and just switch back to 6key.

If I want to play 4key, I'd rather just play K-Shoot Mania or Sound Voltex instead.

I stopped when combo scoring was no longer a thing.

Ruined mediocre scores. AAA or die is so disheartening. Theres no rush of "Ooh maybe I have a good FC this time!"

Now every bad pass looks the same, or its X goods from AAA.

I like to download packs from before 2008 and stalk the nerds who made them.
