As you may know, Nintendo has announced plans to discontinue its Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection setup which will leave all compatible Wii and DS games offline. This news is especially upsetting considering we here at NW were planning to include popular Wii and DS games as a big part of our competitive comeback. As announced in Site Restoration Phase 3, staff has been planning to add leader boards and rankings to the site in an effort to bolster competition among various games that has been missing for quite some time.
In an effort to make the best of this unfortunate situation, we will be focusing on Wii and DS online competitive gaming events and tournaments until the deadline of May 20th when everything goes down. Leader boards will be set up for each eligible game so that members can be ranked as they participate during this initiative.
Signups for games start 3/1/14 and end on 3/31/14.
Nintendo has announced the date and time for it's next direct. It will be available for viewing worldwide @ 2pm PST, 5pm EST ,11pm CET, and 7am JST. As usual, our NWTV will display the streams on channels 3,4, and 5 for US, UK, and Japan respectively.
