Speaking of having little lag. I did purchase i wireless extender. It repeats a signal, so its halfway between wii and modem. I personally do not want to have a disadvantage against others. Its the little things that make the difference in my oppinion.
Nintendo told HVS not to support WiiSpeak since it's discontinued. As for USB controllers and mic, I don't think HVS would go to the trouble of writing drivers for every single one they can find, and that's not really their job anyway. The fact of the matter is that your USB controller and headset wouldn't work for any Wii game, not just this one. I understand your reasons for not purchasing the game, I just think that most of the blame should be going elsewhere than HVS.

Yes and no. Its the little things in how you play. But little things like lag, or controller... They will offer you very little unless you're playing them at their limits, as you will just learn to adapt and play around them.
Its an insult to your own abilities and potential to dwell on the little disadvantages that face you.
I definitely played Tcon to its limit. I logged so many hours onto it. Had the highest rank, competed in Gamebattles, and played with and against some of the best players that game had. It wasn't like i played that game casually. A group of friends and myself would play hours every day.
