    Hi, no you won't lose the Homebrew channel or any CIOS you have on your vWii. The only thing you will loose is the possibility to run the only publicly know Wii U Native exploit that does absolutely nothing good so far (but might in the future).

    1st you will be required to update to 5.2.0 it's on the disc. than you either update to 5.3.0 or miss out online there are no other options. if you try to go online it will force you to update to 5.3.0 there's no i'll update later option either if you don't update it will kick you off the nintendo network until you do.

    What you need to do is update and play SSB. It's worth it. It's the only game worth playing on a Wii U.

    Why does everyone like smash so much? The game is way too fast, I can't see what's going on. It boils down to mostly randomly button pushing and a lot of losing. I'm not in a hurry to get smash.

    It's not fast or random button mashing. It's like any other fighting game. You learn the characters and techniques, and you know the most likely move your opponent is going to be make at any given time. Until a Pokeball spawns, then it's a mad dash for the pokeball.
