    Hello everyone.

    Does anyone know is it legal to play online games such as LoL or Shin Megami Tensei, or any other kind using hornet in University's hall of residence?

    I'm a bit confused as it says that it is illegal to use p2p, but it's ok to play legal online games. What if a game is legal, but uses p2p?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Levi_Civita,

    I'm pretty sure that online gaming is allowed on Hornet.

    I stayed in halls 2 years ago and although they talk-the-talk when it comes to downloading over p2p, I don't think they are as strict as they say they are. Most of my friends who stayed in halls and used Hornet were downloading music and movies by the dozen.
