    Net coding is also an issue. While optimization is key, there's always that one (usually innocent) person who is playing on the moon. If the netcode or connection is bad everyone has to suffer. That should be a no-no. CPU replacing is an okay solution but AIs aren't that smart or sometimes to overpowered and it gets pretty boring/frustrating. People disconnecting is just playing offline. Disconnection frequency shows next to people would help so you can decide whether to stay or not.

    Party with randoms... Maybe just reserve that for With Friends (and invites) instead. Randoms, like you said, are more likely to RageQuit. An option to leave the group instead of random strangers after minigames complete would be nice. (Or a set of 4, where each player chooses 1 game). Nintendo could and should do something like this, Mario Party or not.

    People will rage quit regardless LOL and for people who have bad connections in a free for all room should just be dropped from the match so the connection can stay strong.

    That'd be discriminating against anyone who has a bad connection, be it due to budget constraints or their area simply havin' bad infrastructure. Wouldn't go well in (U.S.) court, it'd be like that there class action lawsuit Verizon dealt with awhile back.

    So what could be a better solution then? Unless Nintendo were to start forcing everyone to pay a monthly fee to go online and have a solid connection. So they anywhere in the world the lag would be reduced greatly.

    That ain't how connection quality works lol. Ninty can't just bump up everyone's e-speed.

    Open server browser. Filter by ping. Those who join and exceed servers' specified limit are autokicked. Sigh, if only. It's basic necessity for pc. Why isn't it more common on consoles?

    Because simple-minded CoD gamers and children would be baffled by what that there newfangled "kicked for exceeding maximum ping" message means.

    That, and console games don't have server systems. Usually. For whatever stupid reason.

    srsly

    It'd be nice t' choose what parameters ya can play under. No more waiting five minutes just to join a taunt party in Smash Bros. No joining the same lobby full of homebrew kiddies five bloody times in a row. No worries about joinin' underpopulated lobbies for less popular games and spendin' half your time "gaming" that way.

    Everyone would just adore that. No desyncs, no lag, and no more wasted time searching.

    Alas, we aren't in that time period with a perfect solution yet and I doubt we would be soon. Money, resources, developement, and time are so limited. There're just too many variables out of our control for all that and then some. What we got isn't terribly broken, it just needs a lot of work.

    Don't say it like it's so easy. If it was, surely they would have done it by now...? N-do doesn't charge a premium for online play so they can't really give the same quality servers. Money is always a problem. And should the hardware be able to do it, it is getting more dated everyday. Servers are only one-side of the problems.

    ... But it is easy. Use the same servers they've ever had and just program the games' online design to be any good lol.

    ... More than video games? You monster.....

    But I'd do the same if I were you. The Wii U doesn't exactly have any spectacular games on it just yet.

    I would'a sold my Wii for extra funds towards my U, but my Wii U was actually a (shockingly expensive) gift.

    I can also use it for homebrew shenanigans.
