It's no secret that participation in OCOTW has sharply dropped off, both in terms of courses submitted and scores entered. Furthermore, it's getting a little tedious to total up notes and set up the new course each week (especially given that I'm not even playing IIDX at the moment), I don't mind doing it if people are actually interested but if not then I'd rather use the time for something else.

So basically, my question to you is this - what should we do? Should we end OCOTW or at least put it on hiatus until things change, or should OCOTW be changed in some way to bring back interest?

If you don't currently participate in OCOTW, what change would get you playing again, if any?

I would greatly appreciate your input with regards to this issue.

What incentive is there to get #1 on anything on the site though? And people still do it for everything but OCOTW

If a course is too hard I just won't bother cause it's no fun for me. That and I need to spend like 30 minutes warming up just to play it. I dunno, most of the time the course has to look fun and I have to randomly get the time to play, which I haven't always.

I enjoy the courses, I just don't have a lot of time right now to do them.

This. I don't play very much at all anymore, and I'd rather not force myself through something that's way too difficult for me. Then again, I'm well below the expected level for people that would be entering this, anyway, so I know my opinion on it shouldn't matter much. tongue.gif

I really like OCOTW but of course everyone knows that. I've put up scores for every one I have the style for except that 10th course that I failed half the times I played it. But I don't think I have any idea what to do about it since I already don't really have an issue with how it works.

Not that I don't see other people's points, though. And it doesn't actually matter to me but I can kinda understand what schala's getting at with the "too late" thing. The overall ranking isn't like the style rankings because (aside from the small number of 1*s where more than 3 people have 100%s) anyone can come back and get the top spot any time, where somebody picking up OCOTW now couldn't get first for 11 weeks even if chkn stopped playing (which he kind of has I think?)

that's why they should be "official original course introduced for the first time each week but you can play them and rank indefinitely so basically it's the same thing as the old original course feature but you're just gonna have to make like a straw and suck it up"

I participated for the first time last week and I plan to do so again this week (I already even created THEFINAL [and failed on it]). The reason I did not try these before was that they seemed so hard it would be a waste of time. I saw them on the front page, I checked the song list and just thought "oh wow fuck that". Now I just thought "oh whatever I'll just enter even if I fail, it looks nice". I was genuinely surprised when I cleared FISH. I actually cleared it twice, out of seven tries.

Another reason was that I didn't play IIDX from April to September or so, I might've missed a few.

But yeah since "too hard" has already been said how about making the course available on a lower difficulty too. For example another entry for THEFINAL where all the songs are [h] or even [n]? That way us who can't clear shit even if our life depended on it can play them without the imminent risk of losing hands. Hell it would give the pros a chance to 98% them if they wanted to.

e: at FISH ie. was fucking Himiko the only song that has scales? The chart is absolutely disgusting and I think it was the sole reason for low entry rate. Don't get me wrong, I liked the course but...

Seriously I originally thought we'd get a balance of hard and easy submitted but when people only submit courses in the 48-52* range what can you do?

Yeah submitting easier courses would be an option but what if the better players find them boring? Not that I could submit easier ones anyway, I'm not creative.

I actually submitted THEFINAL with anothers because I figured it'd get more plays from the better players, though now that obviously doesn't work. They seemed to enter score more often for the harder stuff, so yeah maybe not the best idea...

That and Hell Scaper and The Last Striker were 11s I could actually play.
