    Most of them are incomplete, an eshop dump (Base Game) is
    - Program.nca //the game
    - Control.nca //icon/name/language/region info
    - MetaInfo.nca //this is like a tmd on 3DS/Wii/WiiU
    - LegalInfo.nca //Eula/Agb/...
    packed together as NSP or XCI, but the current NCA dumps are just Program.nca, so its unlikely that you can use them without getting the other 3.

    probably "XCI" as it seems to be the best format until now

    I would imagine xci is supported in whatever form of launcher we get as it is the compression needed to house larger than 4GB files segmented and contained within the container XCI is a container .

    istorage = romfs, it's an unpacked NCA, if you still have the old non-proper dumps from BBB, just delete them, they will be useless for the end user who just wants to play games.

    lol the only reason I download/pirate games is to get them early. I buy every game I want to play :)
    So, if any future releases leak earlier than release date, you bet my ass will download it fast :P

    Not downloading any past releases :)

    I will just keep waiting, they could not be stealthy patched or some crap later might appear or better backup dumps, or whatever. Will only start when I can actually see them on my Switch Screen else mehhh...

    Your comment took me back to 2009-2010 when New Super Mario Bros Wii was leaked EARLY as shit and the dude got busted lol
    and when Tatsunoko VS Capcom was leaked early-ish too and I uploaded a youtube video running it on WiiFlow and it got a lot of comments before I removed it but with one commenter saying "You make me want to homebrew my wii again for TvC" lmao! Ahh good times.

    So with the news update from xecutor, it sounds like xci format will work.......my question is would it matter if the games are/are not PROPER and does it matter region?

    If there's a proper and a not proper, you need the proper. If there's only a not proper of a particular game, that one's fine.

    Whatever dumps work, use em. Like with the Wii, and Wii U, full archival rips, vs base usable rips, are very different things. Just use whichever is available and whichever is the smallest size.
