Lots Of Linux Users Perma-Banned In Diablo 3...Again

Filed under
Web
Gaming

Starting to see a pattern here, folks? I know a lot of people don't like negative news about Diablo III and Blizzard, and most times when we report and investigate matters involving Linux users banned in Diablo III the common response from the outside is that all Linux users who get banned must be cheaters. Well, additional bans have gone out and this time a Linux web portal is getting involved since none of the Linux users are getting help from Blizzard.

We previously reported on the Linux bans when they first occurred back in July, we did follow-ups with some of the Linux users who talked openly and honestly about their accounts and they even offered Blizzard to take a look at their machines, something that happened once again when more Linux users came to us for help after claiming that they had been wrongly banned.
