Post by Combine Hunter »

Looking for three people to join me for a few games of Smash Saturday evening.

Please use this thread to form your own groups of four.

The net code in this is bad.

Like, really really bad.

Played some games with Josh yesterday and at least 2/3rds of them had horrendous lag.

At one point I got dropped from the game and couldn't connect to any games until I restarted the WiiU.

Then I tried to join a random online game and it hard crashed.

I love Nintendo, but they need to be far more on the ball with their online infrastructure than this.

As I said on the podcast I was hoping for this to be the first viable online game in the series.
A darned shame.

I've had a few good, lag free games but ever since that debacle with playing it online (for glory mode) and it potentially bricking your system, I steered well clear

My experience with online play has been mostly fine. I almost exclusively play 4-player matches and I'd say that "only" 1 out of 7 or 8 matches is laggy to the point of being unplayable according to my standards. There is always *some* lag, which of course is frustrating - but unlike online in SSBB and SSB43DS, where it was so unstable I simply stopped trying, in SSB4WiiU neither the frequency nor amount of lag is enough to keep me away.

Yeah, I don't know what y'all are talking about, either with this or Brawl. Almost never had a bad match in any of the three online games.

frozentreasure on Miiverse if you wanna play at some point.

That's interesting - perhaps my own connection was to blame during the Wii era, and maybe I need to give 3DS's online another shot. I'll add you when I get home tomorrow by the way.

It is possible to resurrect a thread after a year and I'm doing it. Anybody want a game very soon?

Good man, I've been practicing so I don't get mutilated this time.
