  3. How important is that Wi-fi filter?

After playing this game, can you go back?


So, what say you?

For the sake of the thread, are WiFi filter and indicator interchangeable? I highly doubt any sane fighting game developer would have a full-on WiFi filter, as that would lead to the alienation and ostracization of WiFi users, especially on consoles. Alienating and ostracizing WiFi users would cause a drastic decrease in profits for obvious reasons. Remember that Harada stated almost 66% of console players connected via WiFi.

The best compromise is a WiFi indicator, so that users can choose whether or not to take the plunge. To answer the question, I refuse to play fighting games that don't have at least a WiFi indicator. Look at how awful Street Fighter V's netplay is, it's a joke.

I'd say they were 2 different things.

An indicator is passive, like a logo or some text.

A filter is a setting that says you will automatically not accept matches from WiFi players.

I agree they’re different, but one has to be realistic. A WiFi filter would never be implemented, so the best one could expect is a WiFi indicator.

WiFi indication is mandatory. Consumers should demand nothing less after netplay became so prevalent during the early part of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
