So if the disconnect truly is a universal problem that everyone is experiencing, and Nintendo's fault, not the fault of various crappy ISPs or old routers, then why did I have virtually no issue playing Splatoon 2 for like 6 hours this weekend? I do agree that Nintendo's offering is pretty bare bones, but it is functionally fine on a good internet connection. I hold to the problem being with ISPs or router issues and not Nintendo on this one. If it were Nintendo, everyone would be experiencing these frequent disconnect issues.

Now the Joycon drift? That does seem to be a real issue that is entirely Nintendo's fault. After so many years in the business, it is surprising to miss something as standard as a dust shield to keep dust out of the delicate internal components.

The reality is probably somewhere in the middle, but people don't like middle ground. It's easier to wrap one's mind around extremes. Server stability can fluctuate, and connection stability when it comes to gaming has so many factors to consider, all of which can fluctuate from one moment to the next.

But it's easier for people to demonize one entity. Much cleaner than giving thought to the numerous factors.

I'm more concerned over the Joycon drifts than the Internet. Mine's stable enough, and had no issues connecting this weekend to the Splatfest. Nintendo should have used a solid rubber on the sticks, instead of adding a flap where dust can enter.

What Nintendo should do is block anyone with a below average internet speed from their online games. Their games uses peer to peer, so your experience is only as good as the worst internet speed connection.

That might work in theory but it would make the paid online service almost useless to anyone with a below-average connection.

Right, especially considering that they are charging money and they don't have dedicated servers.

@Heavyarms55 as I said in my initial post I think it’s a game by game basis, because I also have little to no problem in splatoon or Mario kart, but I have major problems with smash bros. Obviously without Nintendo’s input it’s impossible to pinpoint exactly why these issues are happening, but what is possible to state is that (in my case specifically) it seems to be very clearly a Nintendo problem. Reason for that is I have no issue with connection when playing halo 5, black ops 4, apex, battlefield 5, division 2, destiny 2, killer instinct, Etc.

It may be that smash bros has more people playing it online which adds to already existing problems with Nintendo’s online infrastructure and it could also be smash requires better connections for smooth gameplay considering the type of game it is. I will give Nintendo credit where I can, but even if you agree that smash bros just requires better connection than most Nintendo games require, that argument breaks down when compared to the other consoles that have far more sophisticated online games and don’t have the lag and connection issues Nintendo does.
