    Nintendo Switch Online launched on 19 Sept. If you want to play online, you will need the membership, or the 7-day free-trials. I know, many people don't want to pay for it. Therefore, I am here to ask, can CFW on NS help getting free memberships (mainly want to know can Reinx do that)?

    Nope, that stuff is all server-side, so we can't do that. Sorry bud.

    No it's a server sided thing, the only thing CFW can help with for online is getting banned.

    No, CFW works on the Switch not on the servers. In order to get 'free membership', you would either have to make your own online network (extremely difficult) or hack their servers (prepare for prison).

    If people don't want to pay for it, I'm sure they aren't concerned with it at all. :ninja:

    As many others stated it’s server sided...most likely will never happen. Even if it did work, the bans this time around are heavy. Probably wouldn’t be able to use it anyways.

    You wouldn't need to be worrying about bans in prison

    However if you are willing to put a little work into it there is a thread on how you can get a free membership to the Nintendo Superban Club. Very exclusive.

    That's why nobody cares about ban.

    IDK, how low can a company be to make their clients pay for p2p multiplayer?

    Or pay full price for titles from the 90s.


    Yeah it's the users fault! Not the company!

    but we are still getting banned for past modifications, i would like to play diablo online, pay for the original game and the NSO, but as there is still chance to be banned and render the switch useless for online, i think the risk is not worthy.

    even with piracy, some people would still pay for games, but not now with the online bans.

    i'm fine with getting banned from online for piracy, but buying a second switch for legit games, is such a smart business model....

    i could still give my money to NSO and games that i consider to be worth it, but it is meaningless if you are getting banned anyway with a legit game.

    No reports of a ban with a Nand restore.

    Yep I just plopped down another $300 for 3rd CFW Switch and will still buy games for the other 2, sometimes even 2 carts.(BotW, Splatoon, Odyssey) Nintendo certainly isn’t loosing money on me.

    Willing seller willing buyer. I don't want to pay so I pirate and don't care about ban.

    Then piracy is not for you. I am 100% pirate with only Mario Odyssey as legit game because I bought set.
