yoshilove:"It's fun, even though it's designed to be played with two fingers.

Very well thought out."


Laddie_A:Stable quality. Outstanding in this competition I have to say. The chart is well organized. Everything looks neat and tidy, and it's even better when you play it. I love the pattern from beat 166.The experience is entertaining, and exciting as it offers a smooth challenge for players in a quite decent way. You deserve an e. :P

Second Place

yoshilove:"I found it somewhat lacking in a lot of tracing motions.

It would be better to reduce the number of Wipe notes a bit and let the player tap them."


Laddie_A:Love those slides from beat 113. It's eye-catching, and elegant, and definitely draws players attention back to the chart while the song has been on for nearly one minute with basic patterns only offered. Yet there is a problem that malody has pretty strict judgement on slides. It has different judgement rules when there is one single slide or multiple. Thus, it leads to a disturbance of getting miss accidentally when a slide ends in another slide, which means in that moment the "Single Slide" rule takes the place of the "Multi Slides" rule. But I mean, afterall it shows great ability of the mapper in organizing a chart. It's still worth a solid 7 isn't it.

Third Place

yoshilove:"It would have been better to put another note on one side of 41-48.

It's fun enough for a tap type chart."


Laddie_A:"Unseasoned as it is. Too weak to be a star, too plain to be a bard."

Awesome Competitors

yoshilove:"It's pretty good that the notes are placed as true to pitch as possible.

However, it feels lacking in places, and lacks excitement at the end of the song."


Laddie_A:The creative and lively uising of notes length builds up a quite unique eperience for the players. Meanwhile, I'm looking for more connection between the chart and the song, yet seemingly that's where the author might want to put more efforts on.Besides, in details, I didn't get that "Tap-wipe-tap" jack, which appearts quite weird when playing. But overall it's good, and I would like to give a strong 6 on it.

Laddie_A:Bugs on slide judgement as well.

yoshilove:Just the right amount of fun and movement.

yoshilove:"The tapping does not fit the song.

Too many slide notes added forcibly."

Laddie_A:Same problem with 3H. Also, overlapping one slide on another leads to judgement bugs.

yoshilove:It's a little fun. However, it was a little uncomfortable because it was removing sounds that should not be removed.


Laddie_A:You might want to turn the grid lock on.

yoshilove:It was nice to have a pattern to stick to, but it was not suitable for playing.


Laddie_A:Lots of sparks of creativity in this chart, to be honest. But they can not form as a complete idea. What all mappers should know is that, in slide mode, I do not look for some random inspirations. All inspirations works until it's been organized and well delivered. You see, mapping is about providing your own ideas, as well as the theme or things behind the song. It's more like a language, and it needs grammar. It shall be a working system, a machine, that makes sense in some ways, but not just some ideas stacked up into piles and piles, and no one can really figure out what's really going on. Feeling like a light 4 for this one.

yoshilove:It's a good thing that the last part is harder, but it may be too difficult for players to play properly.


Laddie_A:The chart is still okay until the end part…

yoshilove:"There is a part where the note is not placed in the exact position. If possible,

use a pattern that matches the pitch of the notes."

contest chart:2E



Laddie_A:Too many ideas in the chart, while they can hardly work as a unity. And the notes in the beginning part is a bit narrow by the way.

yoshilove:Do not make unnecessary BPM changes or overlap the start of a slide note with another note.

Laddie_A:Glad to have charts like this. Pattern from beat 317 is disturbing, but most of the other parts are quite pleasing. Also, try to use effect when coding for the SVs. This will help you a lot. And certainly, you deserve a π.^ ^

yoshilove:"The grid can be aligned from the grid settings.

There are occasional patterns that look fun, but a lot of notes are not placed in the right rhythm."

yoshilove:"The grid can be aligned from the grid settings.

Don't just put down notes for now, listen to the song carefully until the end and make a chart."

yoshilove:"The grid can be aligned from the grid settings.

You should increase the note size.

The 「WINTER」 note pattern may be a good idea, but it is a bit too forced."
