Oh, what? Oh shit, dudes! On the 10th spot we have AJJ who is also known as “Himo Nopee Antti” (Extra Speedy Antti). At the end of the year, Antti got unbanned on bancho after a long time of trying which means that he isn’t a really known guy yet. It didn’t take him long though, until Antti FC’d for example: D.M.C with DT and got other crazy scores on long, high bpm stream and stamina maps. It may be that Antti only got 10th place because of the small period of time since his unban but it will be interesting to see what he might pull of in 2020 after his new beginning *Random rambling* Placing 9th on the list, Sonoda-Umi, who is also known as Pesukarhu, who placed 2nd last year. The sudden drop in rank can be explained by him not playing as much as last year but when he did play, it really stood out. Pesukarhu especially set scores on long nomod heavy, stamina, aim and consistency maps that are still unbeaten, especially in loved maps. One of the most famous examples of this would the current top play of Finland: 775pp on Foreground Eclipse – Songs Compilation. Like a bull, on the 8th spot, we have our very own Santeri. The wild, known by everyone, tech player, SanteriP. Last year, Santeri’s fame didn’t manage to pull him all the way to the top 10 Finnish players list but this year he showed us, why he belongs here. It feels as if he has almost unlimited skills for gimmick and tech heavy nomod maps. Santeri can also very well play intense, flow aim demanding, long stream maps. An example for this would be the first FC in Finland on Raise My Sword mapped by Sotarks. Those slow, finger control maps were no biggie to Santeri with nomod, or even with hidden. Santeri has participated in various tournaments, which makes him an experienced tournament player. He played in osu! Finnish tournament where he reached the semifinals and played for Team Finland in OWC where he was carrying the tech picks. We’ll be waiting for Santeri’s upcoming scores with a huge spark of interest in 2020. Being an honorable mention last year, Sakke showed us what he can really do if he wanted to. That’s why he climbed the Finnish rankings and reached the number one spot in just a couple months and reached the 7th spot on this list with all the votes he got. Sakke became the rank 1 of Finland out of nowhere, faster than Miseration this year and even if he got in to an accident earlier this year he still managed to destroy the Finnish leaderboards on high speed maps. Sakke is also one of the few players in the top 50 of Finland that plays with a mouse and showed us, that a mouse can really do anything. The king of Lapland, Tikkanen, who is also known as Kenraali was an honorable mention last year but this time Tikkanen can be found from the 6th place of the list. This year Tikkanen kept setting insane scores with DT, nomod and HardRock on stream heavy maps. It doesn’t matter if the beatmap is loved, ranked, or unranked, only the BPM has to be high and streams need to be long. In tournaments Tikkanen played for Team Finland in OWC and in osu! Finnish tournament he reached the losers bracker quarterfinals. Even if Tikkanen is mostly seen on high tempo beatmaps he has also shown his high level of skills in other skillsets as well. Coming up for the 5th spot is boleks bolek_gamer_05, kelbo_remag, bolek or “that one lizard profile pic guy”. Last year, bolek managed to place 7th but this year, he went on a battle with the 4th and 6th place and managed to respectfully get placed on the middle of the list. Bolek never took his leg off the pedal even though he did go on a coffee break outside of Bancho. In the osu! Finnish tournament he reached the losers semifinals while showing us that he still is a strong player no matter the mod combination or AR. Bolek was able to hold on to his beautiful row of Legend of Millenium plays in which of his top diff HardRock choke would have been the first 700pp play of Finland with HardRock. Bolek was also the first one to 3-mod FC CBCC and was the 2nd person to FC Raise My Sword, right after Santeri. And on the 4th place is our very own Dragonmob, a.k.a Kaarlo who is known for his statements, such as “Good heavens! It’s multi o’clock!” or “Siipihommia”. Last year, Dragonmob was ranked 6th on the list, but this year managing to crawl 2 spots forward barely going past Bolek and almost getting the double of the points that the 9th place got. Dragonmob participated in OWC for the 3rd year in a row, this time being the team captain. Dragonmob was used to be known for his low accuracy but this year he turned the statement upside down and managed to get near 600pp scores on jump heavy high bpm loved or unranked maps. If the hidden modification hasn’t been chosen in the mod menu then the circle size, AR or bpm wouldn’t matter, because Kaarlo would still play the beatmap from start to finish. Number 3, Wucki. He’s on the top 3 for the 3rd consecutive year now. Placing 1st in 2017, 2nd in 2018, and 3rd this year. As the years go by and more players start popping up Wucki manages to improve with the same pace as the others. No matter what beatmap, mod or time of day Wucki manages to destroy the leaderboards and everyone on the board. If you were to describe Wucki with different sayings, they would be: “The Finnish WWW” “Speed Demon” or the “Lil’ Internet Troll”. In the osu! Finnish tournament 2018 Wucki placed 2nd after barely losing the tiebreaker after barely losing the tiebreaker. And now in 2019, he lost to Freezd, placing 2nd once again. Wucki also played for Team Finland in OWC for the 2nd time in a row showing us his wide range of skills. Wucki isn’t known for wanting to be high in the ranking but he rather emphasizes his sessions on playing harder maps and having fun. If Wucki goes on with the same pace as now we probably won’t see him high in the pp rankings but rather in the top of the beatmap leaderboards. Thank you. Did Jupe’s monitor break?! Jupe, Jup3KiloWatt, Jup3InflatableBoat, Deep-Fry KW is on the top 2 players for the 2nd time in a row now. Last year, on the 1st place he was the only player who managed to break the 100 point barrier and this year coming in 2nd, with 101 points in total. If you were to describe Jupe’s perfomance in any way the best way to do it, would be as Jukkii said: “Jupe versus AR9 and below”. May the beatmap type be anything but if the approach rate is 9.9 or below then it must be played with hidden and hardrock, no exceptions. Making it to the losers quarterfinals in osu! Finnish tournament and playing for the Finnish team in OWC for the 2nd time in a row now as the HDHR pick Jupe still managed to show us his skills on consistency picks and on accuracy and managed to conquer the global leaderboards on various beatmaps. If Jupe would practice more slower maps in the upcoming year then he’d become a strong contender for the 1st place. But looking back at the history of the 1-trick, nothing can be taken for granted. One word: “gamers”. An absolute gamer shines above this person. And this person managed to be so good this year so that he was accused of cheating a lot until he proved everyone wrong in the beginning of the year at a LAN-party. Last year, Freezd was ranked 4th on the list but this year, he got 1st place with a total of 145 points which almost the double of what the 3rd place got. Freezd could be very well called the “Hope of Finland” since even a blind person could see just how much of an important role Freezd playedthis year. If it were about osu! Finnish tournament, which he managed to win. Game Osu!, where he almost reached the prize pool. Or OWC, where he played on every single map and carried Team Finland with his full power. May the beatmap be anything and It’d be as if the beatmap was made for this player. It doesn’t matter in which kind of setup he plays on because he will play on it like a smith. Fucking nice.
