    Well if you know your connection is shit then you just host a match and have no lag while they get all the lag. Lag isn't always dependent on location or quality though, sometimes someones internet connection just isn't good with another. In SSB there is a lot of on the spot button mashes and quick thinking blocks, lag will make this all for not.

    Nintendo did fine w/the DS lag. Sonic Rush adventure=Flawless, but turn based games (Pokeman) were very laggy.
    Dont know about wii games, havnt tried Wii's wi-fi but if it's like the Internet browser, it will suck.

    madden has bad lag and thats proabably EA's fault

    same with whoever developed Budokai

    MSC doesnt have very bad lag at all, its clean and Nintendo handeled that game so i dont see any reason why the one of if not THE biggest wii title so far and probably of the next year or so would have any lag...seriously...they would NOT let that happen. i expect some serious overhaul for the online portion of this game.

    as far as host advantage i think it shouldnt even happen, because of the close quarters combat this game promotes, i mean in games like halo where its massive and the host is one miniscule player no biggie but lets say your playing some 1 v 1 the host has a significant advantage...

    if there is lag then for tournies just have the spectator host like sum1 said above, problem solved

    yea thats true usually when i play msc i don't lag if the other person has a good connection so it probably depends on each users connection. and host advantage wouldn't be fair especially if there were rankings

    There is a slight solution to this but seeing as dragon ball z 3 is not doing so well in that department i don't know if it will work. its where nintendo hosts the rooms and two or however many players come into that room and if one person drops it doesnt cut the game out and the other three or however many can still play. but there is still the problem of how well you connect to that server. It also solves the problem of those lame losers that when they get there but kicked they quit out the game to avoid a loss and keep you from getting the win. Its a problem that has been in online gaming for a while.

    actually if someone leaves, they just get replaced by a CPU....so sakurai fixed that problem

    Well if the online play in this game is bad, then I won't be playing online (and possibly not getting the game at all).

    I'd hope that the games will be hosted on a Nintendo server, but it doesn't really matter how Nintendo does this, they better do it well.
