    I was so excited to get this game for the online play.. We have a fast connection!! My husband plays his xbox 360 live with no delay or anything.. We turned of everything we had uploading or down loading the xbox wasn't on.. the lag was so rediculously slow it took 10 second for the timer to clock down a second.. has anyone else hand laggin issues and I had to wait forever to play couldn't find anyone to match me with to play..

    yeah lag can be pretty bad at times, it may not be you however, it could be another player that is making the game slow down.

    While the speed is dependant on your connection at home, where your opponents are count a great deal more. You generally can't have a lag free game with anyone more than 800-900 miles away.

    You should not have been expecting Microsoft-quality online services.

    Your lag is a combined effort of:
    1. Your potentially poor connection.
    2. Your opponents' potentially poor connection.
    3. A poor online service in Nintendo
    4. The large number of players trying to use this service at once.

    unfortunately, if your opponents have cruddy internet connections, all 4 players will suffer.

    sucks, doesn't it?

    Make sure to get some friend codes near where you live. That way you might have more lag free battles...

    Indeed there is more than online mode in the game : )
    In fact online isn't even that big part of the game, that is why Brawl and Solo option are so big, emphasizing the main part.

    One problem with your reasoning: Xbox Live works flawlessly, without lag. If her lag problems were the result of poor connections from other players, wouldn't this occur with Xbox Live as well? Honestly, few lag problems these days are going to be the result of the players having poor connections as most connections are very fast these days.

    And I'm not quite buying the distance thing either. I've played lag free games with people 2000 miles away, and I've played lag filled games with people 50 miles away.

    So, it's Nintendo and their uber crappy online service and servers. Once again, Nintendo takes every opportunity to slack off and cut corners. This is exactly what they've done here and will probably keep continuing to do.

    I think that's what he's saying is the problem. Nintendo dealt with the lag in the worst possible way, instead of just having it affect the person who has the bad connection.

    Xbox live does it right on the other hand(along with pretty much everybody else but Nintendo), if it's your connections fault then it's your problem. I wouldn't call it lag free though, there are always laggy matches every once and a while, its just that the effects are more unnoticeable, the screen doesn't actually freeze up like it does in brawl.

    Come on Nintendo, get with the system. Online gaming is nowhere near new. It was mastered years and years ago.

    The online portion of Brawl is pathetic at best. I have an 8mg line up and down and have played one online match since I got the game. I am thoroughly disappointed in online play. Good thing the rest of the game is great though or I would be really pissed.
