    Just played a few games and ran into people spamming lighting and spikes shells while lapping people multiple times. I thought you can’t go online with a patched Switch? Wouldn’t you immediately get banned?

    The word you're looking for is "hacked". And second, I never knew this is happening. Did they find a way to bypass the detection?

    Edit2: Nope, confused save data with game data, saves are saved on the Switch itself.

    Confirmed according to what? Because on Nintendo's website, they say the exact opposite of what you are claiming.

    Technically you can go online with a patched Switch or any hacked console for that matter. There is no such thing as an insta-ban and Nintendo typically bans in waves but there hasn't been a banwave for a while. That being said, it is not out of the realm of possibility for a hacked console to not be banned after going online but it is strange that these "hackers" haven't been banned yet as people who actively hack online games tend to get hit rather quickly.

    Uh... I guess I confused it with the game data.

    I guess.... transfer save data from a hacked switch to an unhacked one might work?

    https://en-americas-support.nintend...-save-data-to-a-nearby-nintendo-switch-system

    So you need two switchs, a hacked one and an unhacked one. You backup your save data on the hacked switch then transfer it to the unhacked one. Then restore the save data from the backup in the hacked switch?

    Does that work?
