First of all, it is perfectly fine and dandy to play Brawl online casually, but this discussion has nothing to do with this.
I’ve noticed a lot of times, users here on the SRK’s Brawl board will post as if playing some matches online will “prove” something or that it is “worth” something (other than fun). I’m talking about those discussions where so and so situation or so and so matchups are discussed and argued, sometimes by playing Brawl online, or showing evidence via online Brawl matches.
This happens much too often, and most of the time I want to reply in whatever thread this happens, so I decided to create this thread, albeit I may be a bit late since the board has slowed down, so “better late than never”.
This situation is baffling, honestly. I thought any input delay above what GGPO offers (eg Brawl’s) would suffer SRK’s wrath or at least be acknowledged as “bad, but fun to fuck around” and that would be that, but it doesn’t seem to be the case with Brawl. Why? Not sure, might be the “lol kiddie” syndrome I’ve heard about.
And before anybody says “GO GET A BETTER CONNECTION” or some similar remark, I’m just going to add that I’ve played guys that live roughly 10km away and it had second or so long input lag. And I’m sure that both of our internet connections are not bad.
Edit: Also I’d like to add that “no comp whaa” is not a justification.
