    I only get to play this when at my brother's apartment, as it was his Wii and game here. :(  Thankfully, I am finally getting my own Wii tomorrow. I don't have this game yet though. I can't imagine there not being anyone playing the game online. I'd say your problem is related to that error code. I'd recommend you contact Nintendo's toll-free help to figure out your solution.

    nintendo's smash bros servers have always been kind of flaky unfortunately. i had the same problem when the game first came out and traffic was high. i'm sure this soon after christmas a lot of people got the game and they probably are having similar problems. i'm not sure why they have no much trouble while mariokart runs without a hitch.

    I've never had problems playing smash online. Well, except the all too common person who can't stand losing, so he turns off his console, forcing you to get offline.

    I haven't had any problems like that.

    But then again, I've only played online once. Horrible lag is horrible.

    I never had the error code, but when I first started using it used to cut off for me during the loading time frequently. It got better eventually (the lag didnt though :/)

    I thought they had a work around where the character they were controlling just stopped moving for a couple seconds and then the game takes control. (I'm not sure what would happen if everyone you were playing against quit, though.)

    A quick search indicates that it doesn't replace characters when you play with friend codes. Maybe you just need better friends? :)

    I gave up on Smash Bros online.
    I got "Searching..." more than I ever actually played a match.
    Then when I got a match we couldn't talk and the lag was horrible.

    Maybe we could trade codes or something and try it again.
