About Online Matches

This Beta Test uses rollback netcode for online match connections.
You can enjoy online matches with responsiveness comparable to offline matches.

◆About the numbers displayed at the top of the screen during matches

・ms: Refers to the ping (response speed from your opponent's connection). This changes depending on your network connection and the distance between you and your opponent. Your match will be smoother the lower this number is.

・Rollback Frames: Refers to the average number of rollback frames during a set period of time. This number increases the worse the connection between you and your opponent is. When this number gets too high, the match can be difficult to display.

When reporting your impressions or errors encountered during online matches, please include the two numbers detailed above in your report.

In order to perform the network test with variety of connection conditions, the Beta Test will not include features such as a connection compatibility display before the match, or matchmaking filtering based on connection strength.
