フへへへ....It's officially the 3rd of November in Japan which means....HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAYA 💚💚💚💚 you're my absolute Favorite and I'm so glad I got to know you 💚 I love you so much, you have no Idea. I love everything about you, be it your absolutely adorable Laugh or your knowledge of Music Equipment. You're the best, I love you so so much. Happy Birthday 💚
To preface this post, thanks to all the staff, captains, and participants that made this event possible!
It has been a long time since I have participated in a community and to find this one was a blessing. I joined a few weeks before Battle of the Bands, not knowing what it was. But the banner and the constant announcements about it got me interested.
Fast forward to October 27th, the groupies have been sorted and the battles began. I played around 6-8 hours per day with the missions. And spent some quality group time with the groupies. In the Discord chats and through group battles/missions.
I think the format of the event was very well done and I did my best to support my groupies and everyone during this event!
I accomplished every hard difficulty mission in the BOB which....I did not expect. I never thought I could AP a song (I got two during the BOB). I never thought I could get less than 10 greats on a song (I got three during the BOB). I never thought I could hit Goods and Bads purposely (I learned to hit it precisely and how to get it on demand). I never thought I could play songs on EX over 50 times with consistency (I played Redo over 100 times and Heroic Advent about 40 times in a row to complete missions). I never thought I would find a use for my ability to get a very high number of greats (Many missions required this). I never thought I could count the number of non-perfects I needed during the song and make sure I don't get too many/too few.
You can see how much growth this event can be for a player who is decent at the game. It was very eye-opening and a very good event to teach me new things. I think it was really cool that the missions were do-able even for players who may not be pros/gods at Bandori. The balance was really good, even if some missions were pretty demanding. Persistence paid off! (And some of you might know how persistent I can get)
If anyone reading this out there did not get to participate this year, I hope you can make some time next year to give it a shot! It's definitely something you need to experience. Even if Poppin' Party does not win, I think everyone wins in my book. We all had fun, made new friends, and got to be a part of something awesome. I definitely got so much out of the 4 action-packed days of this event.
I really need a space to vent right now. I'm sorry if this gets to personal or serious.
Two days ago, my mom woke up really early. 3:00 am, she told me. She said her heart was beating weirdly, and that she was scared to go back to sleep because she was afraid she was going to have a heart attack. Personally, I am really scared for her, because this morning, she didn't wake up right away. I am very nervous she could have a condition, and I want her to be safe.
I am very sorry for this giant wall of text, I need a space to breath. Thank you guys.
Update: Thankfully, my mom is going to be alright. We took her to the doctor and she's gonna be fine. Thank you for all the support, I love you all!
