  1. Yup, usually in my experience the minute someone brings up certifications, I worry for their intelligence. If they didn't have something to prove they wouldn't feel the need to bring it up. And yeah, wifi is usually always fine in 99% of cases. Things like games that use delay based netcode however, yeah every last ms counts and ethernet is really the only option (especially in our pandemic world where competitive gaming is all online now.) But for casual gaming... as long as the signal is good, Wifi will do just fine. It's just the statement that "ethernet is equal to or even bett
  2. Right??? Even if Slippi was illegal (it's 100% legal), all it does is bring Nintendo fans together during a pandemic to play a game Nintendo hasn't sold and ignored for over a decade. Nintendo has NOTHING to lose here. Whoever sides with Nintendo on this gives no shit about consumer freedom and loves the taste of boots.
  3. You could always buy a Switch used on ebay, that way you get to enjoy the Switch and Nintendo gets not a cent.
  4. What the TOs did was completely legal, it's so clear that you have no clue what is going on here. Do at least two minutes of research before you make yourself look foolish please.
  5. Piracy is not the issue here. Nintendo bringing piracy into this is a strawman tactic to make Slippi look like the boogeyman. Slippi, events and streams are not piracy.
  6. And where does this 99.9% figure come from? Are you prepared to back yourself up with proof or a source of any kind? Anything to show you're not just pulling numbers out of nowhere? I guarantee the vast majority of anyone entering these events owns at least one copy of this game. I've owned it myself several times, got my first copy in 2004. Do I have direct proof of this? No, but you don't either. But as someone who's actually in the community, everyone I know has at least one copy, most have several because at local events you are incentivized to bring in setups for people to play on. P
  7. Except nobody needs to illegally obtain their image of the game. Saying the events should be closed because some people will enter with pirated copies is like saying stores should be closed because some people will shoplift. Nobody is required to use a "specific rom", I don't know where you're getting this information from. And like I've said, Nintendo does have the right to cancel any event that features their IP, but this has NOTHING to do with piracy or emulation issues which is what they say they're after and besides, legal =/= moral. As far as the legality of Slipp
  8. It's the sad reality of how the legal system works. You don't have to be in the legal right to make someone hurt, you just have to have more money than them. Tearing down the little man is all too easy for big corporations, even if they have no leg to stand on.
  9. Except backing up your own games is not illegal, and nobody is forcing you to use an illegally obtained ISO of the game. Read: I don't care what Nintendo "literally says", they're lying and they're full of shit.
  10. Oh yeah, play the new game with 5 second input delay online. Great idea. If you knew what you were talking about, you'd know that all Smash Ultimate pro players are basically doing nothing right now because of covid, the online is so bad that it's almost unplayable. Hell, when Melee rollback came out, most ult players were playing Melee because they can't play ult.
  11. Did NOT expect to see this covered on this site, nice. Yup, Nintendo is fucking dogshit. Facts: Slippi contains no Nintendo code or reference to any of their intellectual property. Project slippi is code injection, not directly modifying the original game code. Emulation is 100% legal and has been proven in court. ROM ownership in itself is not illegal, piracy is. Nintendo has done nothing but stand in the way of the Smash community (not just Melee). Nintendo doesn't have the rights to shut down Slippi. They do however h
  12. People get any kind of basic certification and think they're Wendell. Just witnessed one of these so called "people" arguing that Wifi is just as good as any wired connection in everything. Latency, stability, speed, etc. They have "Tech Professional" in their bio and use the emoji every time they make a point. He was 100% serious too, Welp, gonna rip out all the cat5e I ran earlier this year and switch to Wifi. All the time I wasted!
  13. Would have been a much stronger launch if they had released non X models, or just did away with non X and priced these X models well. It's exciting to see AMD finally grab the gaming performance crown for sure, but this is not exciting at all from a price-performance standpoint. Now we know there will be price cuts (as there usually are), especially considering Rocket Lake next year, but this launch still could have been much better. A 5600 for 200$ would have been mind blowing. Let's see if AMD does it down the line.
