    So now we have paid online, I want to find peoples opinions on whether they will ever use their consoles online again.

    I have a SX OS and I'm debating of going down the nsp route as I get eshop and retail games within the same menu, and games aren't segregated. However this would increase my chances of getting banned.

    Because of this I don't want to pay money to get enviably just get banned.

    Which is why I want to get a few other peoples opinions. I don't play online on my switch so it's not a big issue if I do, but I'd still prefer to have the option in case I ever change my mind

    What say you internet

    I pretty much accepted that online wouldn't be a thing once I started using my SX Pro and I'm fine with it.
    Infinite free games > getting my ass handed to me by racist teenagers.

    And I'm of the same mindset, but what if we're only round the corner of having a legit way to prevent being banned, Its just the thought of shooting myself in the foot for the unknown of what the future could bring

    One of my kids is a big Splatoon fan so we don’t have much of a choice, I enjoy it as well but have not been so into it lately. Will probably fork over the $35 for a family membership as we have 2 OFW and 1 CFW Switch’s. I don’t think any of his friends have Switches so it’s not like we can split it with another family unfortunately.

    Once interest in Splatoon fades Nintendo is going to have a tough sell on its hands if they don’t make it more consumer friendly.

    I think as long as you use only legit games for online and separate NAND's for everything you would be fine. But still, just my opinion.

    Basically waiting until EmuNAND to blow off the dust from my console. While constantly reflashing a clean NAND everytime I go online is one way to avoid being banned, its cumbersome in comparison to having a dualboot system.
