Both, but all my teachers are Dutch anyway.
I mean you guys say "My English teacher" too right?   right?

- Check m.1-4 and related measures (9-12, 37-40) for the RH notes
It's really hard to make out what the right notes are. I did some messing around though.

- For m.8 it'd seem more practical to have the E's be played by the LH and the eighth notes by the RH, although you don't need to
Good point, fixed that!

- Clashing slurs with accents on m.19-20 and m.47-48

- The G in m.30 sounds like it should be an A
Yeah, I know, but it isn't. Check the original.

I tried arranging the percussion (which is just as hellish as a piano arrangement) to see what happens in the first part. The first 5 bars are kinda weird, because the percussion itself sounds like it's in 12/16.
m. 1-4
Bars 6 and 7 are definitely arranged in 3/4 time though.
m. 5-7
And so are m. 8-15: there's a snare on every 2nd beat and no real accents whatsoever on the upbeat of 2 (what would be the 2 in 6/8) This speaks for m. 16-23 too.
m. 8-15
For m. 20-23, the bass doesn't really make sense in 6/8 either. Compare m. 20 to m. 21:
m. 20-21
I confess, m. 24-35 do sound a bit 6/8, though the drums show a more 3/4 kind of pattern, with snares on beat 3 in m. 27-29 and the upbeat bass drum in m. 34-35.
m. 24-35
The melody and bass do lean towards 6/8 a bit, but the drums show a 3/4 rhythm so consistently, that it'd be wrong in my opinion to display the first part in 6/8.

Aside from that, fixed the other things and updated the layout a bit <3

i refuse

I feel like the timpani set up is more like a transition from the "previous" 6/8 part back to 3/4, as the song is endlessly repeating.
The part from 0:10 to 0:33 definitely feels and plays like 3/4 for me, and the part from 0:33 to 0:48 has so much anticipation to the 2nd beat (while having almost nothing going on on the upbeat of 2) that it screams 3/4 also

Also, saying the whole song is in 6/8 means saying the first part sounds the same rhythmically as the second part, though I feel the things hinting towards 6/8 are in the minority in the first part, while they are strongly present in the 2nd part.

I'll get to those fixes tomorrow, but I don't agree that the first half of the song is in 6/8. The electronic percussion beat clearly says 3/4 to me: I hear a snare on every 2nd beat, starting at m. 8. The timpani in the first two bars seem kinda 6/8-y, but that quickly get's countered by the next two bars. The percussion plays a "tsh" sound on beat 3 in bars 1, 3 and 5 and the snare rhythm in bar 6 also plays a 3/4 rhythm.

but ultimately one player isn't allowed to physically make changes
Doesn't that kinda take out the fun of the arranging contest? I think it could lead to situations where the arranging-deprived person is unsatisfied with the end result.

I'll participate again too

I'm not really too fond of an "in the style of [composer]/[game]" theme. I think it restricts someone too much artistic freedom, because you have to think about "What would they write?" instead of "What would I write?"
Also (I'm speaking for myself here), in the case of a composer's style, I don't know much composers and even less their styles. A composer's style could be pretty arbitrary anyway, like Dekkadeci said.

Fixed those!

i liked the song so i started it a few hours ago and finished it just now

I'm taking some time thinking about passionate playing <=> flawless playing. I've never played passionately for a long time, so I do wanna get more feeling into my music. The thing is though that because I play faster when playing passionately, I make more mistakes, which usually frustrates me and pulls me out of the zone. This is probably why I play it more cautious. Maybe I have to practice more, so when I get to performing the piece, I'm less likely to make mistakes. I'm going to buy a piano soon, so I'll probably rerecord this piece on that piano when it's in!

I'm really glad I did manage break you with my music though x) I haven't heard someone say something like that yet so I'm glad you do, thank you!

As a rule of thumb, I think performing anything by Liszt is only meaningful if you put yourself in the shoes of a humble-bragging piece of shit that only cared about impressing the ladies and showing off. Not saying that Liszt was that, but he definitely wrote elements that looked amazing visually - so that's a whole new dimension of performing, hehe :)
I'm not sure if I completely agree: I don't know a lot of Liszt yet, so I'm not an expert on his music, but this piece in particular is too emotionally loaded to be played like a "humble-bragging piece of shit". Looking at the poem that inspired the piece, the "dream of love" is more than just a dream: for me, the loved one "thought about" in this piece has died. I believe the second part, in between the two cadenzas, is the actual dream, while the two other sections being reality. The third section especially is a sigh to reality, waking up from the dream and realizing the loved one is dead.
i kinda let myself go there but i hope my point is clear
btw i'd be impressing the guys here :3
