The release of Street Fighter 6 has sparked a debate in the gaming community as to whether a wired or wireless connection is more effective for online play. The developers of the game have included wifi indicators that appear next to players heading into online lobbies. While the new game has an improved netcode, the stigma surrounding wireless connections still remains.
The argument about wired and wireless connections has been ongoing for years, especially in genres where a stable connection is critical. In the early days of online gameplay, wireless connections were known to result in unplayable matches. However, as the netcode has improved, wireless connections have become more reliable, though doubts persist.
