I joined this community recently because a friend recommened i join up in the tournament taking place currently. I must say that some of the minority of members here seem very immature and inexperienced in using forums and i understand that but naivity is no excuse for rashness. I think it is far too early to start worrying about online play not being perfect as it has been working but with hundreds of thousands of us all wanting to play it is difficult to cope with the load of people. To be honest i think that if the people are complaining do trade the game it will be a very small loss to the game because they bring little to the game in the first place but I urge the rest of you to wait and give the game a chance because i think the server/load issues will be resolved within the week. Although i am agrieved at the fact that the UK is being used as a pilot model for the americans as it seems to be but at least we have a game that has strong potential and the UK market is being recognized more. I know that £35 is a lot to spend (give or take a few £s depending on store) but i feel that it will be well worth it after Nintendo plays around with the features allowing this to be one the best and most awaited games on the wii. Teething issues are expected, so be patient.
