    That's is to protect their right to ban you for breaking the rules without having to tell you which one you broke. That's all. It's to prevent a lawsuit from a hacker getting banned for something they know is a toss violation, but don't care to dig into it to detail the reason and not get sued

    Point I was making is that, the company (many) reserve the right to relinquish their service at any time, whether you broke ToS or not. It's not solely reserved for those that do break it.

    My N3DSXL has currently not been banned- going to leave the information here in case anyone finds it useful
    Have played FEE:SoV, last on the 19th.

    Installed B9S and Luma on the 20th; prior to that I had been on 11.3 with only soundhax on this 3DS, but I had been using ctr-httpwn for online in FE:fates

    Went online on the 21st at some point in Pokemon Moon to get the mega stones from mystery gift; then I went online to claim the festival points for the global mission that ended earlier this month.

    I had title status thing in the friends list on; which I have now disabled. Spotpass info sharing was already off.

    No custom themes or badges installed, though I do have themely. Don't have any pirated CIAs or homebrewed games. I've not done any save editing or cheating in any games either.

    I've not done much with CFW yet except test out kitkat and BootNTR selector, use GM9 to dump a few carts and NAND, and JKSM to backup a handful of saves.

    I briefly went online just to check if I had been banned (checked friends list and PGL in Pokemon Moon) although I only did so after disabling title sharing and checking spotpass info sharing.

    EDIT: Also, never used Freeshop

    So you're meaning if I create my own company I can ban anyone because I don't like them?

    I'm sorry to hear that. It seems very strange that some people who use FreeShop regularly and go online often didn't get banned whereas some people who don't use FreeShop and rarely went online got banned.

    Obviously you're not grasping what I'm trying to say Lol..... I know why the ToS exists, I know how it works. I also know that it doesn't protect legit consumers". That's what I'm talking about.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    If it's in your ToS like Nintendo's, and they hit "agree" then yes.

    btw (idk if this has been said or not as I haven't read the whole thread) but because I was using the same LFCS as about 1000 other people (because of the SuMo ban) and if one person got it banned, we all got banned lol
    So I got banned in EUR but it might be because of someone in the USA that nintendo banned but as a byproduct, all of us using the public LFCS got banned too.

    So maybe a 'have you used the public lfcs' question should be added to the form or something.

    Nah don't worry, I do have b9s installed so maybe that's the reason why
    But I have some friends that I can only play online with and that bothers me a lot because I won't be able to play with them (and my horrendous LAG)

    Does this ban also occurs with gateway patched games? Like if I play pokemon game online using my other game header. Will I be safe doing that or not?

    Name 1 time you have ever seen proven that someone was banned for no reason. It doesn't happen. It is their online service, their rules. You choose to use it. Follow their rules, also understand it's a privilege not a right to use. Hence it is theirs. I dunno why you want to use this as a reason to bash them. If they ever banned someone for no reason that's fine, but anyone I have ever seen banned, had cfw, or played a pirated game early and tried to go online, or cheated, or used something to modify the game. Get off the Hate on them saving their ass in their to prevent thesethings from happening to their product.

    Question anyone get banned that didn't have an NNID linked? Perhaps Nintendo did what they could have done long ago and checked your installed tickets against your purchase history. If there were mismatches = BAN. They could have done this a million years ago to ban anyone using CFW.

    to be fair they may just be willing to take the loss of those who havent been *pirating to ban the majority of those hit who have hacked their system at least partially for piracy which isn't a totally awful idea for them if they really see us as that harmful

    edit: to clarify

    Just hope people don't read it before they sign it, like we all do......... Has anyone ever read an entire contract before signing it? Probably not.

    Just noticed I was banned. The biggest thing I've done was switch to B9S. I haven't gone online with my system in about a month.
