Worth noting that FEFEMZ has been able to select Tohoku Challenge, fail on the first step, and then get into it again within about 10 or 15 seconds. Repeat three times, clear one of the three Challenge charts, then do THAT whole process two more times, and you're into Hou. You can get through the three fails in under a minute and then the Extra in about 2, making it more like 10-12 minutes.

Seems like with these events the amount of money gets bigger and the amount of time playing the game gets smaller.
From his livestreams, that seems like an underestimate; I semi-reliably see one 鳳 attempt every ~20 minutes or so when he's picking Tohoku EvolvedChallenge, and slightly more when he's playing other songs. The Galaxy Stage definitely takes longer than just 2 minutes when you factor in time spent on the song selection screen and the results screen, and there are also screens to go through in between credits (which I kind of just merged into the "it takes 1 minute to fail out" counting).

"Makin' my rounds. Happy"
I was just thinking about something. Maybe those who break down the scoring system are the ones better equipped to educate me on it, but I'm curious. I kinda think 'Hou' is destined to be DDR's first 20. Do you all think this is still meant to be a 19 solely because the requirements for passing it are just because of the special requirements with the Baby-Lon event as an EES -- with meter going down with Perfects and below? It may be easily passable if it were just a regular unlocked song so that's why it should still remain a 19?

I'm just curious if others kinda debate this as well or maybe I'm just thinking about it solely because of this event, and no one passing it after almost 3 weeks... Fefemz and maybe even Hibiki get a lil closer with their attempts, but still... Shocked

(...keep in mind, I still think 'MUTEKI BUFFALO' Challenge should be an 18, but that's just me)

What do you mean by "is destined to be"? Do you mean "ought to be re-rated to"? If so, "destined" is a strange way to put it.

As far as I know the community doesn't have an objective way of rating passing difficulty the way it rates scoring difficulty, and the in-game numerical ratings are based off of passing difficulty (not scoring).

As a reminder, Over The PeriodChallenge has never been cleared under Flare Gauge EX conditions.

"Ought to be" sounds more like a demand or imposing my will, instead of me saying an opinion (at least that's what I was trying to do, just state an opinion). It's been a few years since I've regularly played DDR so I thought maybe scoring also may play a factor especially in special events like this.

But I follow you, I didn't know Over the Period Challenge hadn't been cleared with those conditions either. I did think there was some mechanism Konami and/or players used to kinda determine if a song has an "accurate" rating to which it may get downgraded or upgraded.

This. There's no way we have seen what Konami defines a 20 until they actually release one.

And either way, ENDYMION would be the first 20 of all, as that is proven harder than all other 19s. Plus I feel Hou seems to fall closer to Valkyrie Dimension in difficulty, mainly in its raw speed. Probably a bit below it.

Hou is brutal purely over its gimmicks whereas ENDY is brutal on all fronts

Also Egoism 440 D-Challenge should be a 20 too, it's way too stupid to be a 19

25th Anniversary celebration being one song.

Konami onto nothing. As if botching KAC both in the leadup and in the actual event wasn't funny enough.

"Beisudoroppu!"
Ok so we've got quite a few updates:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/GAAMxGEboAAfU64?format=jpg&name=small
1. BABY-LON'S GALAXY is undergoing some changes from the 30th. To summarise:
- You can now replay Hou if you've previously failed ENCORE EXTRA STAGE without replaying the three Challenge charts (New Millenium, come to m1dy and SISYPHUS)
- The diffilculty for Hou will be bumped down to Heavy
- The gauge will remain at FLARE IX. but it will be expanded

Someone please let me know if there's been a mistranslation here i'm fairly certain i've messed this up

2. New GOLDEN LEAUGE Challenge charts for Lightspeed

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/GAANHAybkAA87Ji?format=jpg&name=small
3. The DanceDanceRevolution 25th Anniversary Song Contest song that was previously announced will be released on the 30th

Basically people that have access to Hou can now play its Expert chart or higher (either Expert or Challenge) and can challenge it from FLARE IX or higher (FLARE IX or FLARE EX).

I imagine FEFEMZ is gonna clear the Expert pretty easily. It's actually likely that if he figures out that final run in the Challenge chart that he could also clear that under Flare IX.

His current run has him failing at the same spot (873k). Brutal section.

There's a ridiculous run featuring crossovers and crossunders during the section he failed at and we're all pretty sure that there's some gimmick fuckery waiting at the end if he makes it past that. Wouldn't be a 19 without it.
