BenDaBeast A started this petition to Nintendo

This was something I originally started on the Mario Maker subreddit on reddit.com, and everyone seemed to agree with me, so I'm creating a petition so that hopefully Nintendo will notice. u/punkonjunk was also able to correct me on some things, so thanks to them. You can view my original post here

 

How many times are you playing some Versus/Co-Op mode, and you are about to make that jump, but all of a sudden you get a sudden lag spike? Or, the game is lagging constantly, you get used to it, and suddenly the lag goes away, completely messing that jump over a pit or enemy? It's annoying, right?

In case you didn't know, with Nintendo's online service, there are no servers unless the game developer hosts some themselves. Since SMM2 doesn't have any servers, each online game is hosted on a random player's Switch (and it also eats up bandwidth). That being said, the quality of the host's WiFi influences how much lag there. If the host has bad WiFi, you are going to have a lot of lag, even if your WiFi is top notch.

Another reason is the bad netcode, which is the code that tells the game what to do in online situations. Currently, Nintendo's netcode is causing the game to match the speed of the person with the most lag. So if one person is having a lot of lag, and everyone else isn't, the game is still going to lag for everyone.

I think that this is completely unfair. There are so many times when I'm winning, but then the game starts to lag horribly, messing up my jumps. Sometimes the game lags constantly, and I'm just saying, there's nothing enjoyable about having to wait a full minute just for the starting countdown to finish!

All of this could be solved if Nintendo were to create and host dedicated servers like Sony and Microsoft do, as well as changing the netcode. I know that if the servers are put up and the netcode is changed, whoever has bad WiFi will lag constantly while everyone with good WiFi have a smooth experience, causing the bad connection people to not have any fun, but trust me on this, there's nothing fun about having to die and start at the beginning because of that Goddamn lag!
