    No, you'll probably get banned only if you cheat/use out of region games online/use public headers on sky3ds/gateway. Using DLC as CIA will not get you banned

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Not quite. We can't confirm this yet. We need people to stop posting the assumption that CIAs won't get you banned, and things of that nature.

    Just because there have been no reports, doesn't mean it's not possible.

    If it was possible, it would have happened already.

    Again. This is an assumption.
    There are many things that would have happened already. Don't shoot the messenger.

    people need to stop this baseless rumor. nobody has been banned for using out of region games online, CIA version of course. i know people who already spent like over 1000 hours playing MH4G/MHX and still not banned. heck i have mario kart 7 US on my JP 3DS and i'm not banned.

    There may be legal reasons why 'out of region' games are not banned on-line.

    Perhaps region locking is a contentious area of consumer law and game companies don't want to force the hand of the courts or be party to a class action lawsuit. Or at least Nintendo doesn't want to be the face of such a thing.

    Using DLC you have not paid for in some games like smash will get you banned. A few people have said so as such. If you want to use DLC then buy it.

    Entirely untrue as well.
    I've been using scene DLC online since CIAs were first able to be installed.

    You and all the other kiddos need to REALLY stop spreading fake rumors. NOW.

    True to that, i should've said "will most likely not get you banned, no garanties tho"

    I've seen reports of people banned for using MHX online out of region. But i'll stop affirming

    Most likely, good to hear that, i guess the chance of ban comes from cheating/reporting, like with badge arcade
