    why would i tell you stalkers where i live?
    just a random comment, but i got the update nag, so i updated luma and made a nand backup so i could update and play online. After that i checked on my games and i discovered that i can still play online games, why is this? i'm still on 11.3 and should not be able to play online due to me being on an outdated firmware.

    1: the minimum friends driver version is enforced server-side, and this check is not updated on the instant a new update is released (a few days of tolerance are common)

    2: Luma has a patch that spoofs this version, exactly so that you can still go online (for multiplayer, at least) without updating any system titles. Since you have updated Luma to a 11.4 compatible version...

    Some games force system update, and some do not. Smash 4 still does not, and I am currently on stable Luma for the Neos and USM-eM mods. Pokemon S&M probably do, but I haven't bothered trying because Gen 7 was a real disappointment in my opinion.
