Map update as of 27/5/2023

In addition to the V3 adaptation that has occured earlier this years, a few tweaks have been made to the Arcs and general mapping across all difficulties.
In addiiton, NJS has been toned down across all difficulties to fit the ranking criteria of Beat Leader.

I would like to thank @lackwiz @loloppe and the Beat Leader ranking team for providing the necessary feedback based on the ranking criteria ! 🙂

Amoung the changes were :

1) Improved mapping for and angles for all difficulties based on feedback.
2) Got rid of a few weird angles and bad chains / miss-angled arcs.
3) NJS change – From 17, 15 , 13 , 11 ,10 to 15.5 , 14 , 12.5 , 11 , 9.5

I wish to offer my apologies once more to those of you who played the map in the past and have been stripped of your scores….
Hopefully, this new change will not only help in setting better scores, but will ensure the maps rankability in the coming times on BL !

I would like to thank Javierattor for once more providing a second gameplay preview !
