Tri-Attack actually freezes, burns, or paralyzes. Though you do bring up a good point.

I think once a basic online is in play, it mainly will just be syncing the psuedo-random numbers to make everything work.

If there's anything I actually can do to help with Essentials' having proper online functionality, I'd love to... But it's mostly a scripting thing as far as I can tell, and when network or internet starts getting involved, I lack even basic scripting knowledge.
