Fat Merk DDR brags

Post by Merk » Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:48 am

I wanna talk about my random DDR scores but I don't want to clog up the Merk vs. IndyDDR thread and I try to keep Bemani related stuff out of Conversation Cornucopia. Guys this is some serious shit.

So I'm a fat motherfucker, that much is clear, and in the grand scheme of things I was OK at DDR before people started AAAing everything and I started to stagnate. While most people were getting their 100th AAA I was happy in my prime to get a SDG on a 9 or a clear on the World Tour oni course and I never really got much further than that. In light of my fatness, I feel like even the most dubious of scores are an accomplishment so the handful of people that read this thread should expect, you know, pretty bad scores! Is a SDG on V (oni) an accomplishment? Nowadays that's average, but you have to keep in mind that I'm carrying about 75-100 pounds more than the average DDR player so hey, maybe a fatty SDGing V isn't too bad!

With that being said, here's some shit I did while playing singles on Extreme yesterday:

Cowgirl - 2 greats
Saint Goes Marching - 15 greats
Cleared the From Solo oni course!


Will I ever get another AAA? Will I lose weight and get to the point where I can handle the harder stuff? Will I clear hard oni courses? Will I ever AA a 10 that isn't Max 300 or PS? THIS THREAD HAS THE ANSWERS!

The DDR/ITG community has always had an attitude where people talk about how bad they are, even when posting a good score.

There's an active player base?

In my 14th year of playing DDR, I still have ZERO AAAs. I think you are probably *still* better at the game than I am as far as score/grade/accuracy is concerned. If I beat any of your scores in our little contest, it's probably only because I played it 10 times.

That being said, the scores you just posted look pretty good to me! Congrats!

To be fair I am lumping ITG and DDR players in the same boat since they are legally indistinguishable from each other.

I think I played the song for about an hour and a half straight until I got the AAA. I want to say it took about 30 tries, maybe a little less. I black flagged it once and got 3 greats on it probably 10 times for one reason or another. I tended to fuck up and get a great somewhere in the beginning, either at the first 16th note little diddy or shortly after it. I always got nervous and psyched myself out if I had a perfect run going into the part at 0:45 where the vocals come in a second time (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-R78axeAtfQ).

Oddly enough I never had any trouble on the little part before the end run where it goes BOW...... BOW.... Biggi-ba-BOW (about 1:13 into the song) which I feel like on paper is the hardest part of hte song to PA.


Man maybe I should write a nice little three paragraph story about my trials and tribulations for each AAA I get.

God damn it, I'm going to AAA Super Star today. I've gotten like 5 or less greats on it countless times, it's time to run this shit into the ground and just AAA it

Well I played Super Star about 17 times in a row and the best I could muster was 3 greats and a run of 2 greats and 2 pad misses


Guess I'll keep whoring it out!
