When playing online with random band members should you play at your comfortable skill level (you can usually perform at 95%+ and earn 5 stars) or should you go to your stretch level and rely on band members to save you? I sometimes see people switching difficulty on different songs. What is the best way to do that?
I am new at pro drums and I can do most songs at hard (1-4 difficulty) but most of those nightmare songs can waste me on expert. When I play online I see a variety of instruments and skill levels being used. Some people can gold star just about any song on expert and others struggle at medium.
Also, sometimes people drop after selecting songs (irritating).
Lastly, I am rocking on the Wii and there is no integrated voice or text chat. When selecting songs, what is the polite process? How many to choose? I usually wait for 1 or 2 people to pick a song, and then I put one in. Sometimes the set lists get longer than I would like to play (12 or more!).
Regardless, it is usually great run to play online. Thanks to everyone for playing!
For those about to rock, we salute you.
