This is nothing but a lie…
Most (like 70-75%) of the players are young on GF and do not know/do not care about getting a wired setup. Shit the person posting that (OZ) runs wireless and is in another country and has a shitty speed, but still “tries” to have “high level” matches… LOL
There are like 40-50 players on that site and at most 7 of them run a wired connection on high speed and do not have others on their connection all the time. That is at most. You could find 6 other players to play with in less than 3 months of pushing the game at locals…
People and Money build interest in any game. If you do not have people playing it, no one will care. If you do not put up money for it, people will not care… Less and less people are caring about the fact that it is on the Wii, but they are more concerned that no one play it and no money is ever going into it.
If you can change either one of those two factors then the game will build for you… Other wise, you can lie to yourself and play online with GF…LOL
Edit: The best and most efficient way to build interest in this game is to hold tourneys at other events, (I prefer smash tourneys because most all the people there have Wii’s or have access to them more than once a week) but you have to stay consistent. After two months of running tourneys at some monthly/bi-weekly, announce that at the next one you will put up $75-$100 into the pot. Keep the entry low as can be ($2-$5) and continue to put up bonus money.
I know it sounds like a waste but, if bringing the game back up is what you are after then you need to make some sacrifices to ensure that it happens.
Just some food for thought
