    Is it safe?

    I know that Gateway 3DS is compatible with netplay, but is there a risk of getting caught and getting your 3DS banned or anything? Whether you're playing via online matchmaking or with a friend via FC?

    Since a few updates ago.
    I've not heard of anyone getting banned for using a Gateway online yet. People have been banned for using stolen credit cards on the eshop etc. but no bans for flashcart usage, yet.

    Does anyone know if it's even plausible to get caught, technologically speaking?

    It's possible, sure. Each cartridge has a unique ID, and if they see multiple people with the same ID playing at the same time, I imagine it'd be in their power to blacklist that ID from the servers.

    Will it happen though? Who knows.

    Netplay is an emulator solution to playing online, not sure if you and OP are getting terms confused or if I missed something big in the scene.

    I believe their definition of "netplay" is "playing on the net." You're right, they just phrased it confusingly.
