Nintendo has released an update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Switch input in its star-protected brawler series. Patch 1.2.0 makes some adjustments to the difficulty of challengers shown in offline mode, but the more effective tweaks are for their online offers.
First, Quickplay will keep the rule you prefer in mind a little more when searching for opponents. Nevertheless, as noted by Nintendo in the update notes, matchmaking may take some more time because of this and there is no guarantee that the match you receive will use the rule.
Nintendo has also improved the stability of the connection in Battle Arena, and hopefully this should improve the shocking connectivity issues that many Smash players have reported since the launch of the game. Take a look at the full patch notes below, with Nintendo.
