    This sucks but in all honesty there's not much stuff Nintendo has that makes me want to go online anyway. lol

    I've played a few matches of Smash Bros over the last couple of days. Been fine so far.

    I mean did they really think they could get away with going online with pirated shit?
    Has the history of J-Tagged Xbox's and CFW PS3's taught us nothing?

    Sounds like everyone with a flashcard just needs to flip that internet switch off and pray.

    Most online servces nintendo provided in the past hasn't had piracy verification, which mean anyone with a dump of a game and backup loading/linkers could play online just fine. Great move nintendo :)

    I hope that Nintendo takes a soft-handed approach and just bans people using cheats or playing pirated games online, unlike Sony, which bans anyone even suspected of altering their system in any manner.

    It is one thing for Nintendo to lose potential sales of games due to pirates. It is quite another thing for Nintendo to subsidize pirates by paying for their online play.

    So far, they seem to be going after only the most blatant abusers: people playing pirated games online and cheaters.

    Good job, Nintendo. Seriously. Keep up the good work. People want to play online- they can fucking pay for their games.

    I wonder if Nintendo also logs the headers of a played game instead of only the title and gameplay duration.
    Just thinking out loud :D

    If they just use their own headers, they're fine.
    I've used public headers, (I own every game i've ever downloaded), and haven't played online since begin february, and haven't been banned.

    Is it possible to change your NNID?

    seriously though everyone knows if you use a flash card, mod chip or even soft mod and use online there is always a risk your going to get caught. if you want to play online without fear buy the damn game!

    xD this Ban is to easy to bypass, i just use a Webbrowser Exploit from a ROP file on a EMU nand with a costum NNID and MAC/UD adress from header/ram loading of arm11 that what you already know. And proxy i use after that.

    Same here, i have a sky3ds and gateway, but every game on my sky3ds i own myself and dumped it myself, so i use my own headers to.
    It's just the ease of having 1 cart in the console instead of taking 30+ games with me.

    I would probably actually care if there was something worthwhile to play online
    it should be easy to bypass if all they are doing to banning the mac address, so you should be able to spoof it in emunand
