Default New Difficulty System Name Suggestions

Hi guys!

Now, the new difficulty system has been a work in progress in the background and should be in place as early as mid next week! One of the less important challenges has been creating titles for each difficulty while maintaining unique acronyms for each.

What I would like to do is take suggestions from players regarding the final names of these difficulties. One in particular that has been deemed 'dumb' is the FSO title. Keeping in line with the For ____ Only scheme of things has been a long term tradition for FFR, but other suggestions would be great too. (I know some of the Team Indeed guys seem to like 'Brutal' as a fitting title). ??? will remain as the difficulty name for 20's as vRofl is the only song that falls into that category.

This is the current name list that is up for voting/changes.

---------------------------------------

01- Easiest
02-
Beginner
03- Novice
04- Very Easy
05-
Easy
06-
Light
07-
Moderate
08- Standard
09- Tricky
10- Very Tricky
---
11- Difficult
12- Very Difficult
13- Challenging
14-
Very Challenging
15- Expert
16- Master
17- Guru
18- Brutal
19- Ridiculous
20- ???



01- Easiest/For Beginners
02- For Beginners/Very Easy
03- Very Easy/Easy
04- Easy/Standard
05- Standard
06- Tricky
07-
Tricky/Difficult
08-
Difficult
09- Very Difficult
10- Very Difficult
---
11- Challenging
(approx. 46-50 in the 1-99 scale)
12- Challenging
13- Challening / lowest few VC
14- VC
15- high VC / lowest few FMO's
16- mid - high FMO
17- high FMO / low FGO
18- mid - high FGO
19- FSO
20- vrofl

---------------------------------------

A bit of background information. The new system is a 20 difficulty system with a 1-99 rating of each file that will set it in an order within its difficulty. (ex. 11s in the new system will be the 46-50 range)
The current 1-8's will be the new 1-10's. With the current 9+ difficulties filling the new 11+ area. Keeping in mind that the current ratio of 9:10:11:12's is 3:3:2:1, and that there will be better division of the upper tier files, so we're looking at high VCs and the lowest FMOs in the current system sitting in the FEO (difficulty 15) range, and the high FMOs and lowest FGOs sitting in the new FGO (difficulty 17) range.

In this thread, I'd appreciate if you'd make your suggestions in the form of re-posting the entire 1-20 list in the same colour scheme with changes you've made in italics.

Thanks in advance guys! We're hoping that this will assist us in making a system that will be essentially moderated by the players with transparency and public opinion taken into account every step of the way.

04- Simple
05- Light

I like how the new system looks. No longer will Eclipse be considered the same difficulty as Destiny v1, Oasis etc. or Mute City Remix and Szamar Madar being the same difficulty as Lawn Wake IV.

Seconded on having D/VD/C/VC like that, think it sounds a lot better. May just be used to the old naming scheme.

I like Middie's suggestions for lower level files, they seem a bit more intuitive. My thoughts for the upper-level files:
18 - For Legends Only
19 - For Ridiculousness Only
20 - For Death Only

Connotation wise, I believe there is more of a difference between Challenging and Demanding, than there is Challenging and Difficult. When one thinks of something as challenging, they think of it as somewhat difficult. However, when one thinks of the word demanding, it's more associated with a task being overwhelming or exhausting, something at a much higher level than simply "challenging."

Thanks for some speedy responses guys!! Personally I don't like the FSO title as it stands, but I was always intending on getting community input on the names before anything was put into place (as these require engine changes). Our 2 difficulty consultants & all 3 of us game managers are against the current FSO title too, so we're hoping for some good suggestions here!

Just one thing please, as I have no idea how many responses we'll get regarding this thread.

Eh, change my mind on what I said earlier. Here's what I came up with:

01- Easiest
02- Beginner
03- Very Easy
04- Easy
05- Simple
06- Light
07- Moderate
08- Standard
09- Tricky
10- Very Tricky
---
11- Heavy
12- Challenging
13- Very Challenging
14- Demanding
15- Very Demanding
16- Exacting
17- Punishing
18- Brutal
19- Ridiculous
20- Impossible


Not sure about 20.
Would also like to see beginner replaced since I like the difficulties better without having to use "beginner/expert/master" etc. Think it's more consistent that way, can't think of one more easy name though.

07- Tricky
08-Hard

19- Ridiculous
20- Ludicrous

Exclusively for Songs Like vROFL- Impossible
Unless, you plan putting vROFL under Ludicrous.


I took out all the words that contained "Very" in them, and replaced them with their own unique difficulty, that also represents closely to their own separate difficulty level based on the other difficulties around it. Sorry for completely re-doing it, looks better without "Very" all the time in my opinion.

- The Demanding difficulties didn't really sink in with me, it just looked like filler, so I swapped them out with something that would be a little more descriptive of what to find in those certain songs.

- I don't think we need to make another "For ______ Only" Bracket because It's jam-packed as it is trying to put in Stepman Only right now. Also, FEO doesn't sound all that great when you say it.

- The only thing I haven't changed is the For Masters Only and For Gurus Only titles for token and abbreviation purposes. Considering that you planned on removing the FSO abbreviation, and For Stepmen Only, I changed it to something a little more menacing.

- I made a difficulty for vROFL itself because it is a dump file, and has no proper place among other legit FFR files. Also, if any other dump files come into the game, this would be a valuable place to put them, along with event files that were meant to only be put into the game for a couple of days, making it easier for players to find said event files, and dump files.

-EDIT- Forgot to point out that I left challenging where it was as a reminder about when you are transitioning between difficulties 1-10, and 11-20.

A few comments:
-I dont like Oni as a term. most people would have no idea what that means (including me)...
-I've always been puzzled by having easiest AND beginner as different difficulties. to me they mean the same thing... thanks Middie for your suggestion.
-I like for legends only. makes FLO. not the greatest acronym, but better than FSO looks anyways.
-bahamuts suggestion "Impossible" i find fitting. nothing can be harder than the impossible ;) I know... bit sappy
-I'm against flashy lingo. I recon difficulty names is something that should be pretty low key.
-I guess i'm partial to "Very" since they've been in the game already...

I've combined my favorites. I'm not a huge fan of my 9 & 10 suggestion, but i'm not entirely sure what else would be good...

01- Beginner
02- Very Easy
03- Easy
04- Light
05- Moderate
06- Standard
07- Tricky
08-Very Tricky
09- Heavy?

Thanks mate ;D

Also guys, try to remember that we are aiming for unique acronyms across the board. Undoubtedly the biggest pain in thinking up new titles. With a need for more hard titles I changed D/VD from difficult to demanding as it fit better in the harder area of the difficulty scale. But as with all of these suggested titles, are up for votes to change ;D

The only song in the 20 difficulty range is vRofl, hence it was put in the OP as ???, much as it appears in the engine atm as a 14~

That being said, nice usage of terms Stinger, my only issue with some of the titles is repetitive acronyms which would make referencing files a little tricky over time. (Though I am confident people would be able to adjust)

---

Double Edit: I am aware that in saying we are after unique acronyms that I have used Easiest and Easy in theOP list, lol
