Pack Guide for Efficient and Fast Improvement for Beginners and Intermediate Players

(Original FFR Thread Here -->
Packs that don’t have a download link next to them are in the in-game pack downloader

Now since you can hit a few arrows, you can
start playing some faster files with jumps and hands (2 notes at once and 3 notes at once). Playing files with lots of jumps and hands as a beginner is very important to get better at reading more dense files.

Thanks man! This will be very helpful
Currently, I’m in the 16-19 range. Started playing Etterna seriously a month ago, converting from o!m (sorry) after 3 years of slow progress. Apparently, it was my PC that was the problem. I was getting lag spikes and overheating issues all this time. I can’t read the notes properly when my PC is throttling, my FPS went down tremendously. I’m starting to get frustrated and I started to try Etterna. I actually played Etterna a year ago, but then I gave up because it was very weird to me at first. When I came back, I forcefully try to adapt to it (because o!m is making me mad). And now, I’m addicted to Etterna and it’s amazing community

I have been improving a lot this few weeks. Starting to get the feel of higher scroll speeds. If you are having problems reading dense charts (like I did), try to increase your scroll speed a little bit. Maybe your sweet spot is higher than you thought!
I started on 600s, then I got to the 700s. Now I’m doing 800s, currently at 810

No problem! Glad to help :))

Appreciate ya dropping into stream and showing me that intel! I’ll be getting some more practice in, and also reviewing more songs in the scopes in mind. We should see some good improvement next time I get on cam~

install lunatic rave 2, download insane bms, and play everything, solo is dead

also tbh i highly disagree with anyone playing official DDR packs, as a bms boi now i disagree firstly with playing official konami real game files and songs, and 2ndly the files suck for improving

sir this is a wendy’s
