Apperantly not all games are effected by the shutdown. Earlier today i found Call of Duty 4 for the wii and i tried playing multiplayer. And it worked, without any modifications. So after a quick little research i've founded out that some games are still playable without pathing wiimmfi. The servers are smooth and i'm usually in a full lobby.

I really would't be so excited about that... even if Nintendo WFC did work on other games and such... not many people would be aware of that, which would basically make it a dead server.

Ohh I remember this.

Activision was mad about the shutdown or something, so they put there own server on the Wii for CoD? I believe that's what happened iirc (I found out from Fish)

All because of marketing. Nintendo wants to force you to get your fanny out to Game Stop or wherever you buy Mario Kart 8 and have you buy the latest and greatest from them.

Not in my eyes. The item balance is crap and it's hard to actually get around people. Not to mention if you win a race you go up like 9 points. GG Nintendo. #BringBackMKW

All about the $$$ as far as they're concerned. Unfortunately, MKW isn't going to come back (although I wish it would).

MrBean35000vr uploaded a video for when Mario Kart Wii was going to be closed down and saw there was a list of the games that were going to be effected.
