I never had much trouble with Smash U, i keep wondering what people are talking about.
Maybe its a Usa thing that there are problems but as for me and my friends, all in the Eu (Netherlands) we barely had any trouble, ofcourse we had some hiccups but it wasn't as much.


U.S. is huge

So some parts have good infrastructure

Some parts have it s***ty

That makes sense.

Its more than just that. The size itself poses a problem for latency. Even if all the US had the same high quality internet infrastructure, New York is still over two thousand miles from LA. Even the best internet trickery can't make the speed of light faster.

Smash has technically always had poor online, but it still got as popular as it did.

Online problems would only limit ultimate to being as popular as previous entries, but not more.

It should, but it won't.

Nintendo is never going to learn a lesson about their online. It didn't matter with the Wii, DS, or 3DS, they started to care about it on the Wii U, but the Wii U sold like crap so any lessons they learned there were thrown out the window. The only lesson they learned was that they could charge for some basic, barebones stuff. And it worked!

(That being said, about 75% of my matches have been 100% fine, the other 25% were catastrophically bad, but it wasn't all that much worse lag than any other online fighting game I've played. But I'll openly admit to not playing a ton online. Nintendo's fundamental online problems go well past just lag, though.)

Anyways, for whatever reason, Nintendo is the one company that can more or less get away with doing core functions either horribly, or not even at all, and it not effect them at all. People just f***ing ignore it, and it's annoying. (and I don't just mean online.)
