    But the shitpost is true. The only argument people seems to use to defend the service is the "but it's cheaper than the competition".

    The shitpost itself isnt aimed to "stop liking what i dont like".

    I currently don't own a Switch yet but the online looks pretty abhorrent in it's current state. Nintendo has stated that they are working on dedicated servers from what I heard although considering the current state of the Switch's online and Nintendo's history with online services I'm a bit skeptical if Nintendo can even pull it off.

    Because many gamers including I would rather pay a little extra for a service that is more stable and offers more.

    This is the truest thing out there right now. Nintendo isn't exactly known for "excellent online services". So, if they're looking to start charging people for it, they need to offer real incentives. One of which being excellent dedicated servers.

    No. I'm going to avoid it as long as I can or at least until they release a game I really need to play online.

    That makes more sense. It was never about the money that was the problem, it was what they offered for that money. A game a Month would be nice. And I want better online from them then what we got in the past. I'm already over the VC service they have. Games are too slow released because of licensing. I don't care about it at all. We got Unofficial Emulators that does a much better job and I already have access to all games.

    But at the same time compared to PSN and Microsoft its a lot cheaper. So you are getting less for a cheaper price. I would like a basic online ($20) and premium service ($60) from Nintendo that does the same things PSN does like free monthly games. That would be better.

    BTW, those saying "There are no voice chat, there no features like on PS4/XBO"
    Guess why it's cheaper... seriously, take a guess...

    Because it is bad? Seriously, being cheaper =/= a good service.

    ...why would net neutrality influence that? There are _tons_ of services out there that offer premium servers for a fee alongside free servers.

    Preferential treatment by an Internet service, meaning a fast lane, kind of goes against the entire point of NN. ;)

    Is there any other online gaming services besides Microsoft and Nintendo that we can make comparisons.
    I want to compare if the $20 Nintendo Online is actually a rip off compared to other services if there is any in the same price range that offers more.
    Nintendo has NES games right now.

    If they add more NES and SNES games I think 5€ for a year is a great price (I divided a family subscription), as of now best games are ice hockey and balloon fight, 20 € as of now are not worth the service

    Some objective insight would be great, but I'm not seeing much of that outside of this biased negativity. :o

    Early days for the service I think - an earlier post mentioned the fact that there is no roadmap - which is the shitty thing.
    I just hope there’s better things in store for Switch Online - not a lot of pull at the moment!

    I with you on Net Neutrality. Regulation Kills innovation. It eliminates competition and consumers suffer from a worse service because of it.

    Any objective insight would be great. Biased negativity makes people dumber in the process.
