Nintendo Switch Online is launching in a couple days, and I've been wondering what exactly you can do without a subscription. I was playing NBA yesterday and realized that their MyCareer mode, which involves interaction with other players in "The Neighborhood", may become completely unusable. According to Nintendo, some games won't require a subscription, like Fortnite and Paladins. They haven't really been clear about whether strictly playing with others will require a subscription or if all connection will be blocked until you pay up. What route do you guys think Nintendo will take?

So people who have been playing Splatoon all this time suddenly can't? That's pretty weird.
No weirder than when payment suddenly started being required for PSN. People who still play a lot of Splatoon 2 probably won't have an issue forking over $20 for a year. I got my fill of it a while ago but I'll be subscribing mostly for Smash.

Have a group of friends and it ain't even 20$ a year, its like 4$ a year.
