    someone was saying that Nintendo is giving BAN to people that play online on games from other region.... and that is why i have the wireless OFF.

    there are reports of bans here or it's safe to play online on other region games?

    Considering how quick people are to post about any old inane crap on here, I'm sure we'd have loads of posts about this by now if it was happening.

    Ancient rumor. "Reports" of this are extremely rare. It can safely be disregarded. There have never been any, AFAIK, proven reports of people getting bans for that. If anything, it's for using identical headers (.3ds only) online at the same time. If you're using CIAs you can rest assuredly knowing you're fine. If you use .3ds with a flashcart, you're gonna make sure you use private headers, regardless of the region.

    Just played a match on monster hunter x with the 1.2 patch and no ban. As long as you don't cheat online or for anything that's online based or something you need to get from high rank quests online only
