    I just bought ARMS, it's an awesome game, but I noticed some flaws.
    • I got into a party match with a player named "Timo" and they seemed to be hacking or lagswitching. They were jumping all around the place, I couldn't grab them, strafing all around and even TELEPORTING.
    • When I join a 3-player fight or a 3vsHedlok fight, it seems to go normally, until everyone stops, and then ARMS notifies me that "Connection with <player name here> lost." and slowly after that, it says that about the other player too. It gives a "Draw" result, kicks me, and in the lobby (bugged, noone is there and I can only do training, not even quit), I wait a little and the Switch says "A connection error accured" and kicks me to the character selection screen (or the main screen, I don't remember).
    Have you had problems? Tell me in the replies.

    Hacking doesn't exist on the Switch yet, what you saw was most likely lag and connections errors.

    Well, the errors sure aren't on MY end. I have good Wi-Fi.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    there are other ways of hacking\cheating...
    i remember the xbox, people would modify a lan cable so it wouldn't disconnect the person but would mess the entire match for others

    I'm waiting for mine to come through the post, its looking like tomorrow now, I ordered it from gameseek.co.uk yesterday morning but I shall test it out for you soon as possible!. @BlastedGuy9905 its sounds to me like your internet connection is not very good your end, have you ran a test in system settings to see what grade your getting on your wifi connection? you should be getting at least minimum B grade, if you get a C then that's your problem. If you have an ethernet adapter than test Arms with that but a lag problem alongside glitches online play, is certainly a connection issue your end.

    Might just be server load from all new players online on release day.
    I've played since last Saturday with no issues, it's actually been very smooth.

    Ooh, last Saturday you dark horse you did get it early! I'm pleased it sounds & looks so good. I would be very surprised if Nintendo released a game like this with issues as he has explained and I'm betting on his connection is the end result.

    Edit: sorry was you talking about the "Global Testfire" demo?

    Hmm. I'm getting NAT Type B, Down 20.7, Up 2.7. I should really get a better plan and a newer router.

    If your getting a Grade B with 20Down and 2.7Up that sounds plenty good enough to me. Have you got good coverage bars for your wifi signal? try altering your channels on your router settings, it still does sound like a connection problem somehow to me.

    Soon as my copy comes I will test it for you to see.

    Between my Switch and my router there is only one wall, so I say it's okay. I think I'm getting one or two bars.
