    Just wondering..
    Anyone knows if GBATemp will have another Wi-Fi night soon?

    It'd be a shame if we won't have another one.. :'(

    I have no idea about future plans but some of the other members have organised their own tournaments in the past which work well enough.
    Who knows, if you start the ball rolling (timeframe: games and modes thereof) you could garner "official" support.

    I might finally be able to join in now I have a modem as well.

    Some games according to wikipedia:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_DS_WiFi_games
    Nintendo also has a half decent list:

    If you want my suggestion: Worms2 4 player matches with plenty of girders and ninja rope.

    Worms would be cool, but there are soms bugs in the WiFi games, Ive witnessed some...
    Like I was playing against another person I knew online.
    Suddenly his worm started to wave the White Flag, so I won.
    But when I talked to him, he said my worm started to wave the White Flag, and he won.
    We didnt wave the White Flag, it was just a bug in the game, but that way we lost our WiFi match....

    My suggestion is Fifa 2008, great fun online!

    IMO, if GBATemp wanted to make a pwnage Wi-Fi night, it could make it something like a Wi-Fi Olympics. It would have different types of games, for example Fifa,Clubhouse Games, Worms,Mario Kart DS, Tetris, and other online games. Contestants would be grouped, and each group would play all sorts of game genres. And for example, only the 2 with the most points in each group, go to the next level and so on.
    Those who are good at certain types of games may not be at others, so it gives a fair chance IMO.

    But I'm just wishing... Here's hoping GBATemp makes something like this a reality [​IMG]

    I, for one, would not enter any competition with FIFA in it, as I have a strong dislike of sports games. I'm sure many other people feel the same way about other games, for example they may be put off MKDS because of snakers.
    Yes, you have these problems with a single game as well, but when they're all together it puts more and more people off participating.
    I think sticking to one game is better, unless anyone has a solution to the problems I have just mentioned.

    That could be fun, although I totally sucked at the card battles.

    @thread
    Bleach 2 and UMK3 are both good fun online fighting games that could be played.
