    Plot-twist: The word is "Kitty" and Kitty planting a red herring to get people off her trail.


    ...(I'm not saying that's what's happening!)

    it may just be that tumblr post of someone stating the described nnid is the hacker. they've even got onto spamming social media, just on name alone.I have no clue, so if anyone does, let us know.

    True, we can't just assume it is K9516B.

    I'm not here to confirm that the person I mentioned is in fact the hacker but they are definitely a suspect if you ask me. No one would point fingers without a good reason in this hacking situation.

    I wish it was me lol I would love to play as an Octoling, but if I knew it was messing with other peoples' data I would have dropped it. What the hacker is doing is pretty careless.

    @GeneraLight It was a full word?

    ATTENTION: THIS IS THE MII NAME, NOT THE NNID (NINTENDO NETWORK ID)

    The Mii name is what shows up during a Splatoon match, not the NNID. I remember the Mii name starting with a Ka, Ku, or Ko. And it looked like a Japanese word.

    So it was a Japanese word in English letters that started with Ka, Ku or Ko. You don't remember the full word? Oh, and did it have any foreign or special characters in it? Do you remember any of the numbers?

    at this point, if they've been paying any attention, they more than likely changed their account info, switched accounts, or never played with their main in the first place. the ball's been pushed, and groups outside this one are acting upon a slight whim. there may even be more than one modded file/account. we just don't have enough to go ID hunting. unless generalight can gather the info they encountered, or another player encountered a modded player.

    Regarding timezones and possible country, this happened around 9:15 AM EST this Monday, which is like 10:15 PM Japan time. My room had a lot of Japanese players in it.

    Do Japanese players even have access to softmodding Wii Us?

    Its all part of the process. We can't ID the hacker in one go if the people who see him don't write the name down or remember it. And I don't blame the people who have played with him for not remembering. Its tough for people to remember names with unfamilair words and random numbers in them.

    That means it was 1am Pacific time. Which means that the person could have been from anywhere really. :/
