Blizzard Perma-Bans Linux Users From Diablo 3

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

Listen up Linux users, if you're using Linux plus Wine you can allegedly be banned from Diablo III and you won't be getting any refunds back at all. If you live in the United States you're screwed, if you live in France, Korea or Germany you might be able to seek help.

Let me repeat that because this concept may be hard to grasp for some people: You pay $60 for a game. You run the game on a Linux system with Wine so that you can get Windows type functionality out of your Linux OS. Eventually you can get banned by Warden. Blizzard is not issuing refunds because running the game on Linux is considered third-party software that can break the terms of service.
