This was a question I was pondering and I was curious to hear what you guys think. It's still saddening that Nintendo WFC was terminated if you ask me. Nintendo WFC was much bigger, there were less trolls (technically not really, but since Nintendo WFC was so big, everything was pretty spread out), and people weren't constantly breathing down your neck because it wasn't so easy to find the same people over and over again like you do on Wiimmfi. So what would Nintendo WFC be like if it were alive today? Honestly, I think that a lot of people would have quit by now. The people remaining would probably resort to playing in friend rooms or playing CTGP. Maybe there are some brave souls who play in WWs still. The reason I say this is because a couple months up to the shutdown, hacking was getting really bad. People were making very malicious codes and surely they would get released to a majority of hackers, meaning that most WWs would probably get frozen, DCd, blackscreened, or whatever other inventions would have been made by now. Essentially, I think that hackers would have really ruined it. What do you guys think?

Everyone would still be hacking. I would use invincibility codes to protect myself. It would be really chaotic. Maybe there would still be the anti hack.

I didn't think of that. If the anti-cheat system by Bean were in play, I think that would be a game changer.

I feel as if, obviously, there would be thousands of more players and hundreds of more clans. Not gonna lie, I would probably still use hacks every now and then, but I would still do legit ww's and clan wars. It's hard to tell if the community would be better in terms of people being nicer, though, because I could see how the community could improve but also get worse at the same time. It's a good question Zach, but it's quite tough to answer honestly. Anything could happen if WFC was back/never shut down. :p

Yep, that's why I want WFC to be back.

Tons more people; tons more hackers. And I wouldn't have to wait a week for a new stupid console.

Why do you say that?
No hacker protection, they can't get banned on NWFC, and 20102 was already bypassed.
Who knows what codes could've been made now if hacking was still a thing you could do without getting banned in WWs

It would be chaotic. It would still be interesting though.

True, but Wolf also brought up a great point:
Tons more people
With more hackers, there would be more people to more or less keep everything balanced (more in the legit favor actually). Although, I'm sure there would still be plenty of hackers.

That's true, but I'm sure the hackers would kill rooms faster then ever before... I could be wrong though, :p
