Duplicating my thoughts from #scores. The tier list of files I’ve played so far.
In order from best to worst, including within tiers themselves.
Straight off the bat, the best file in the pack. Even meme song choice aside, it’s a masterclass in charting. I have literally zero even remote complaints about this.
Superb composition, pure sex. Only got a couple minor weird moments, but those are probably just skill issue.
Mila Toh Marega
Absolute cockslammer of a song. The file is ludicruously, unreasonably fun and even downrates well. 9 / 11.
This is NOT a 24. It’s a lie. It’s a stinky lie.
The file clearly showcases Zeta charts like a madlad, but I’m literally shitting myself, how is THIS a 24?!!111
Subtle, yet present PR, all the good shit indicative of superb composition. Thumbs up.
Just a well-made file, straightforward and needn’t bells and whistles to be playable.
2econd 2ight 2eer
This file is GIGA POGGERS. Just go play it. The piano part alone is worth it. I don’t care if it has some flaws, they’re amended by the file being fun.
A clear example of how to do dump charting. This chart should be used as an example of what dumping should be like.
Very straightforward, yet great file. The song alone is worth it.
Nice file, nuff said.
Artistic charting, an experience of a chart.
Glorious file, too sad it’s so short. Would definitely love if there was a lot more.
I’m not too big on the chordjack segment in the file, but the rest goes like a bomb. The song is slamming, too.
It’s just a good file. Nothing to say.
The color theory is epic, but the file has some noticeable flaws. Despite that, a worthy file.
AVGN Theme Trash Metal ver.
Most of the file is fun, but this ending can suck my dick.
Very straightforward charting, nothing to say, nothing to complain about. It’s well-made, but nothing super memorable.
Same as previous. I’m not too big on chordjack, but it’s just a well-made file.
Turbo testicular torsion. Unbelievable, Sklitter made a decent file! It’s a dump, granted, but it follows the music closely. It does feel a bit too dense at times.
A keyboard smasher of a file. Straightforward, but not super memorable.
Anchors and chords to an anime song. Need I say more?
Rave 2 Rave
OSUMANIA FILE. This file is just a straight trilly JS for 2 minutes 3 seconds straight.
[CMOD] One year closer to death
I love this song so much, but I feel like it was a mistake to use 16ths in it, the song doesn’t really have those audible. This feeling of something missing lasts throughout the chart and… wait, why is the chart file SSC? OH SHI…
Earbutter ft. Spragga Benz - War [Zardonic Remix]
Nice fucking title, you are supposed to put artist in the artist segment.
Anyways, the chart is as dry as a noodle in the desert. Not a single opportunity to chart something interesting was taken. There is nothing wrong with the file charting-wise, it’s just a wasted opportunity…
Can’t let go of RMX
A weird one. It doesn’t feel like a dump, but it doesn’t feel like a straight chart either. There is nothing fundamentally wrong, but it doesn’t seem to make up its mind what it wants.
My own submission. I got probably one of the WORST song in the whole pack, I hate it so much.
While I did my best to chart it, I’m not super proud of my file and I blame it entirely on the song choice.
There is very few opportunities to take with this kind of song and it’s a mess, too. I’m never gonna stop malding about it. I could have dumped it, but fuck that.
A submission for me [subtitle is wrong, it’s not for NanakuraRin], so more words.
This file was a disappointment. While it does have potential, the dumping here doesn’t follow the music nearly enough and there is a lot of what feels like filler. As the charter explained, this is due to his style of putting constant strain on the player, but this just ain’t it chief. Don’t put filler stuff if nothing is happening in the song. In short, could have been a lot better.
At least it’s synced okay.
Dense chordstream that doesn’t follow the music at all imo. Or rather, the music is completely secondary.
This could have been an A tier file, but it was ruined by a ridiculous difficulty spike that’s there for absolutely not reason and it’s not a singular occurrence either. A good file in theory ruined by major flaws.
[XMOD] One year closer to death
Apparently this file is supposed to be an xmod file. Well, just don’t bother, it’s unreadabullshit. The charter simply doesn’t know how to use scroll gimmicks correctly. My disappointment was immeasurable and my day was ruined. This song is PRIME for xmod charting, but alas the charter fucked it up.
Maybe I’ll chart it myself at some point, it’s a shame to waste such a song.
Man’s not hot
“Was this chart autogenerated?” as somebody posted really does explain my thoughts about this file. It’s bad, it’s really bad. It doesn’t follow the vocals at all.
[BG diff] 1-800 Ghost Dance
I understand why poco did it [nice song sub lol], but whatever, this chart is straight up a “play the song and mash keys randomly in ArrowVortex”. Unironically I think that’s how this was made.
…wait, why do people recommend I play the other diffs, they’re like 2 minutes files with 2 notes…? OH SHI
Pallet feat. mikanzil
This file should not even be in Secret Santa. I’m surprised theropfather did not even boot you from Santa for this. It’s 26 seconds of a 2 minute song charted and it’s not even good.
Files I, for various reasons, cannot rate.
As the world caves in
Too hard for me. Seems promising, but cannot play.
Would rather be asleep
Straight up a modchart from ulti. On its own it’s not bad, though it forces a scroll speed on you which is too slow for me, but honestly it’s a pretty XD chart.
Wa Da Da
The intro is good, but then it goes downhill from there tbh. Honestly just cannot consistently rank it.
I just cannot decide where to put it. It’s a very bizarre case for me.
[HD/IN diffs] 1-800 Ghost Dance
I knew the memes of charters charting files in notepad [or Sublime Text or VSCode or whatever] were true!
I quit Etterna to play better games. This is pog!
I love how the songs are all completely different too!
