Always nice to see a troll get what they have coming.

Rage quitting is a big issue in online games. It's not fun for the loser to get his pants whupped by somebody way better than s/he is, and it's not fun for the winner to trample his/her opponent and have the match end partway through.

The best online games will have systems in place to try to ameliorate this issue. Matching up players with similar skill levels is a good solution, but Nintendo's online doesn't really facilitate this. Another thing you can do is set up game mechanics that favour the loser. The loser might spawn faster, or get better weapons, like in Mario Kart. In the case of PES, Konami might have the losing team run faster or kick more accurately if they're down by 3 or more goals.

Of course, this turns off some of the hardcore, who feel that they've earned their right to pwn noobs with their 1337 skillz. But really, if you're that much better than your opponent, wouldn't you rather they put up a little fight? It's gotta be better than if they get discouraged and disconnect halfway through.

Hmm i forgot about other wireless access points as there are no lss than 5 on the block i live in.

Anyway, when i first played pro evo on the wii i used ManU as my team as did my opponent. He beat me to pulp but thanks to that i managed to learn a fw tricks and managed to squeeze out an honor goal near the end of the match. 7:1 the final result, it was. But i was nonetheless happy about my one goal.

@ That Guy

I would expect them to never come to the field in the beginning, if we're talking about the French. But good point nonetheless.

I personally think if someone disconnects they should atuomatically lose. If they have a crappy Internet connection or have to go somewhere it's there fault.

That said, I did disconnect on a guy in Mario Kart yesterday because he was a hacker.

Kept dissappearing and reappeaing from the track.



So why did they call it the 360?because when you see it, you'll turn 360 degrees and walk away- some guy on Gamespot

Latency and bandwidth are different issues.  Plus, most gamers seem to stick with wireless for online gaming with the Wii, which is a remarkably bad idea especially if you live near other people.  Wireless access points have only three channels that do not interfere with each other (1, 6 and 11) and the interference range is almost twice the demodulation range -- so you likely have more than twice as many wireless access points generating interference than you can see when browsing for wireless access points.

Plus, the frequency range is shared by cordless phones, microwaves, flourescent bulbs, bluetooth headsets, Wiimotes, PS3/Xbox 360 controllers, etc.  It is so over saturated that it is a terrible choice for gaming.


Isn't wireless your only option with the Wii?  Or do I need to go back and check the owner's manual?

I will add you tomorrow, I really sucked on the Wii. I have also the 360 version, but that one the online is broke, and in the Wii i never find people connected.
