    Do you go online as soon as you click it?

    No one knows for sure, you should call one of the developers to find out.

    If your wifi is off, you won't go online. Why risk playing the game with wifi on?

    Does it connect once festival plaza loads tho, or is there somthing before it connects to go online? like does it ask if you want to connect to the server?

    no, if you just open the Festival Plaza it dosen't connect directly to the internet, there is an option inside festival plaza to connect the game to the internet, use festival plaza with the wireless off just to be sure you don't get online by accident.

    So you guys think itll ever be playable online? im guessing that bans were for going online early, but im sure a lot of people got their games today.

    well nobody is really sure, i heard tha the game itsefl (the file tha was leaked) contains a version number tha will make the game detectable by nintendo after the game release, that is why many are deleting the game and the ticket just to be sure they don't get banned. all of this is jus especulation, as for me i alredy deleted the game and the ticket, and i'm going to wait for the game to apper on the freeshop to play it.

    I don't think so. I've been using Festival Plaza (with the wireless on) for a week and not banned, probably because I've only used the offline features of Festival Plaza and never connected to online services.

    Well, i don't know much about the way the files work, and what kind of information is sent when you conect the game to the servers, as i said, there is a lot rumors and especulation, i'm just taking every precaution i can, maybey i'm over reacting. i'll wait and see what hapens.

    Even if you have Wi-Fi enabled, you won't be banned. Games cannot force your Wi-Fi on without disclosing it to you first.
