Say I want to pause the song once to prep my fingers for a ridiculous solo. Is it considered cheating? Do you support it and/or do it yourself? I've always been curious.

I personally don't do it anymore.

Though, I'll take Speeding as an example. If I paused right before... whatever that section is called it'd make it a fair bit easier, and would probably have the FC by now by using that. But it is a game mechanic, so I have no problems with people using it. In games before WoR/RB3 I kinda see it as more impressive to not screw up on the unpausing. Minus maybe a few outliers like Satch Solo D, possibly FSA in GH3/M. But it's a game mechanic that allows you to pause, as long as nothing is added that isn't a game mechanic... I'm 100% okay with it. Used to do it for one of the FiU Solo's to remember how the strumming was supposed to sound. And I believe used it in my FC run of it.

You can also extend it a bit further into pathing. I pause a decent amount just because I forgot the path. Which... sometimes there is a hard solo that you activate on/just before/etc. So I guess in a sense I still do use a form of it. Just not in the form you're talking about. I say no cheat.

I don't really see it as a problem.

Personally, unless you're abusing the system to hit something you normally wouldn't be able to otherwise, I see no issue with pausing. For example, pausing during a break in the song wouldn't change anything. Now, pausing mid solo in a place that would be really hard for you to hit due to transitions to allow yourself to get your hands positioned to then hit said place once you unpause..well yeah, that's proooobably frowned upon and could be considered cheating.

I have to say I did use the WoR pause mechanic on at least one song when going for a first FC. There was some transition I knew I was able to hit, but I was stupidly losing FC runs to that part so I decided that I'd pause in there so I would not spend hours and hours retrying because of one dumb part. It's not something I'm proud of because I don't think it was too legitimate of a strategy, but it's still part of the game to be able to pause anywhere, and it's hard to draw the line for which pause is legit or not. What I'm gonna say is, if we're going to ban some pausing, we should definitely ban it all together, and THAT is definitely not an option.

its also very hard to prove unless we only accept 1st score with a video link, which ain't an option for some people.
