[quote=MilkBoneBut there is still a server involved. I didn’t say it was a complicated dedicated server. But either way there’s still a cost.

Costs that are already recuperated through eshop sales.

Whatever dude. You can cry till the cows come home, it won’t change anything. Nothing is free in this world. They are following suit to PS and Xbox. If you have this big of a problem with it you are crying in the wrong place. There is nothing anyone here can do for you. Maybe you should seek some legal advice and sue Nintendo then.

Unless you're on PC where 99% of online play is free.

Why is it that those with a weak or non-existent argument insist that their opposition is "crying?"

I am absolutely furious now with the Nintendo Online Service!

Yesterday my son was all upset, since he suddenly no longer is able to play for example Minecraft Multiplayer together with visiting friends in Splitscreen mode!

This was never an issue before, but now since the launch of Nintendo Online, all accounts need to be FULL Nintendo accounts with a paid subscription!

WTF??!! This was never needed, as long as the main user launching the game was a Nintendo Account, it just worked! But now ALL local Switch users require to be fully managed Nintendo Accounts with a subscription, even for local Splitscreen in Multiplayer games! That's just bulls hit!!

@toiletduck I made some comments recently that didn't align with the mainstream and thus proved controversial enough to warrant de-modding.

Glad to see you're still here then and didn't feel pushed away! I like you're comments and I'm a loyal reader of your stories in de FIFA thread.

And all of that still has nothing to do with tying.

But still, can you tell me where Nintendo have costs associated to playing online in rocket league?
And I would also want to know the difference between Fortnite and rocket league while we are at it, since one is behind a paywall while the other is not.

I just did. Since you didn’t pay close enough attention, I’m not going to re-explain it in different ways.

If the costs they have are "friends lists", then everyone should pay. But still, those cost are negligible. They are also needed to even get the eshop to work, do you think you should have to pay to even be able to access their shop?

That's not it. Didn't you pay attention to what Milkbones said?

It doesn’t matter, Therad isn’t going to sub up no matter what. They’ve made up their mind.

I see. He's one of those people who refused to listen to reason and tries to make a point, right?

Yup. To each their own, but the online service is here now. Love it or hate it, that’s not gonna change.

Mojang will release a patch to fix this problem. Just go to your world's setting and disable multiplayer game it should allow you to use local split screen.

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

@Therad How do you fancy a negligible subscription?

I've just created a family group and have sent invites to 2 users here. I've got 3 spaces left for anyone else who fancies it for £5 for 12 months.

Guys remember this is not a cult, there's no point in trying to force the subscription onto others.

Let's respect other's decisions and opinions.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I guess I’ll return all this cult apparel to Party City.
I don’t think anyone should be doing the “prove it wrong or right” thing. Not all opinions can be swayed, either. NSO either has value for an individual consumer, or it doesn’t; such and such is why the individual feels so. No one needs to ‘defend’ their choice, we’re not the masters of each other.

Now where’s the closest Party City?

Money isn't the problem, I have a well paying job. I have no problem paying for content, I know it costs money to make quality content. I really dislike the entire concept of online subs because it is an extremely exploitative practice. The platform holders are abusing their position over especially smaller devs.

If someone pays Nintendo to play for example rocket league, nothing of that money reach psyonix. This is a company that have already paid Nintendo to be on their platform. Which have increased the value of the switch platform.

Simply put, it is pure greed and they can get away with it because it is a closed platform. What do you think would happen if Google did the same thing with the Android platform? Do you think they would have gotten away with it?

@Starfy I think it will work. You don't have to pay me anything until you've accepted my invite, so we'll know whether it works or not. But you can pay £5 sterling or gtfo

I sincerely hope so, as it's really annoying and stupid. Going to test and see if it's the same issue with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, since it also offers Online Multiplayer+Local splitscreen.

^ This! And vice versa. I come on here to talk about the service on how it’s working, the features blah blah blah. Instead we get how it’s illegal and paywall and stuff. I don’t care if others like it or not. But for those who are using it, hows it working and info about the features.
