Could Nintendo eventually detect users booting into RCM menu (saving some record of this) and then hitting everyone with a banwave? Or is this log also deleted somehow? I wanted to have sysnand for clean online gameplay and emunand for offline backups. Don't wanna get banned and have my BOTW save stuck there forever.

Yes there is a high ban risk

If you've properly set it up, there are plenty of people here using a clean sysnand / dirty emunand to use CFW / homebrew / NSPs and still play their legit games online without getting banned. If done correctly, it's completely safe.

You are highly unlikely to get banned for merely entering RCM.

Certain homebrew applications, NSP-installed games, etc. can get you banned. Use an emuNAND for hacks if you don't want to be banned.

I doubt you can be banned just for entering rcm. I doubt even nintendo would be able to tell if your switch went rcm even once. Their banning relies heavily on your error, logs, and activities sent to them, that's why emunand is important if you really wanted to play online.

Considering that RCM is a feature of the console itself, they would be banning their own manufacturers for entering RCM. That being said, simply booting into RCM shouldn't leave any traces since its not a part of the NAND.

    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
