I remember when starting out on IIDX that having a constant rival-in-crime like Shinigami or Mazrim really helped all of us to get better simultaneously. I'm having a hard time motivating myself to play it all the time like I used to, but with the addition of the Troopers [B] charts it's made me interested in bringing up my game a notch again.

So I'm looking for someone roughly around my skill/scoring level. I've got about 12 [B] charts and maybe 10-11 [A] Another charts to clear left in the game, and have a good slew of 10*s AAAed, with a few 11*s here and there (most notable ones probably being Quasar [A] Random or W&W [A] Random). Anyone interested in making both ourselves better?

I've found what can work as an alternative to a continuous rival (they can be hard to find) is a stream of rivals who are incrementally better to catch up to:

May I recommend you go after JIMBO and/or PAPSMR. Then CHKN. =). Perhaps *shrugs*.

I'd offer, but you're 26% EX up on me and I can't pass all but the rarest of 11s... and you're beating me by more than 100:1.

Thanks, I do already do something like that though, with both JIMBO's scores and KONAMI's (Laggy's) scores, since I don't think either of their scores have moved a lot as of late.

I'd be down for a rivalry, I think I gotta improve my game a bit first though. I'm terrible at the harder songs but hope to change things a bit over the next few months.

Good thing there are PS2 -> PS3 adaptors... If IIDX goes triple, I'm definitely sold on the system even if though it's big enough to crush me to death in my sleep.

Poor Attack; in other words Ryujin needs to step up his game at the harder songs, since Faker doesn't get as many poors as him btns.gif

As much as I love that answer, its originally Perfect Attack from DDR, he just means his timing, but he's a fucking idiot and doesn't know how convey it properly.

And before anyone jumps my ass, I know him. He really is an idiot.

i'd take you on Ryujin but you're better than me on just about every song (not by much) and i only play arcade now since i let someone borrow my IIDX games. my progress is seriously skyrocketing though as i keep dumping more and more quarters but the fact that i can't enter any of those scores really doesn't help :/

Well, I'm not closing doors to any people who want to improve also. My timing abilities are pretty solid on most 10s and below but past that it gets cloudier. Going with DistorteD recently, I like stuff like Quasar [A] and Shoot 'Em All [A], but I'm still not so great on scoring with songs like AA [A] or even Due Tomorrow [A] (mostly due to the busted timing).

So really, anyone who's also looking to just improve the 11s and 12s would be good to team up with.

And for reference, I'm using a Dao ASC.

I dunno I think a rivalry could work but:

-Most of my scores are sightreads because im a score/clear whore so I want something entered on everything
-Pretty much everything on BMUS and Red-Gold are pretty bad (sans a few 11s and 12s I update)
-I have no 12 AAAs, 2 11 AAAs (R5 and Fake time), and a few 10 AAAs/FCs

Perhaps whenever I finish my [a] scores on DJT (which should be soon).

I've pretty much been doing the same thing as you. I go though these on and off seasons mostly, like when a new style comes out, I fill in my scores for everything with mostly sightreads excluding the hardest ones of course. Then as time passes I end up quitting again for a few months. Updating is also a pain when you have a score entered for every single chart. Still, I've been doing some comparing with your scores for time to time. If you think of some songs to do some more direct rivalry on, I'll be happy to play you.
