As most of you know by now, NetherRealm Studios dropped a patch this past Monday. The patch for Injustice 2 brought a new matchmaking-embedded approach to identifying opponents' connection types. This patch contained some balance changes, bug fixes and most notably, and the Wi-Fi indicator. Out of the entire list of changes, the Wi-Fi indicator was and still is what players are talking about. Along with the stir this has caused within the community, there are also others watching from afar to see how (or if) this may impact online tournament play.
For those who may not know, when playing a fighting game, there are two types of connections that players can use: Wi-Fi (connected via wireless signal) or Wired (directly connected to internet router). Well, this new Wi-Fi indicator that shows up on matches displays what kind of connection you've been paired up with.
Kotaku has put together a feature on the subject, with opinions and thoughts from Joshua Gray, @Pig Of The Hut and others.
