      For fucks sake people, just because someone uses linux doesn't mean they aren't cheating.

        Me and my buddies have played multiple expansions of World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, and Diablo 3 under wine with no issues from Blizzard. This leads me to believe these people are cheaters plain and simple...

          Just so you know guys, I was banned too a couple of days ago so I can confirm this is still happening..
          Play-on-linux, ubuntu 64bits.
          The funny thing was I only played for like 5 hrs just to try out the game... (used the starter edition trial installer) and then I got busy I never touched the game for like 2 weeks. Then blizzard emails me telling me my account is suspended and I'm using unathorized software and hacks..
          Although I was never planning to buy the game as I am too busy to play full time ( I just wanted to play till level 5 or something just to see what it was about as I was a huge diablo 2 fan), I contacted them with all the info, asking them to lift the ban and to confirm whether they just banned me for using wine.
          Here's the crappy answer that I got...

          Code:
          Greetings, 
          
          Thank you for contacting us. An additional review of the action taken against the Diablo III account on xxxx@gmail.com has been completed. We have confirmed our initial findings, and the account action will not be reversed or changed.
          
          Actions are based on the violation's severity and take previous violations into consideration. This action was taken in accordance with the Terms of Use (http://us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/legal/) and our Diablo III Policies (http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/diablo-iii-policies), which all players acknowledge and agree to before logging into the game.
          
          We understand that these policies may seem harsh, but they are in place to ensure that every player is able to enjoy their time in Diablo III. Thank you for respecting our position.
          
          Sincerely,
          
          Customer Services
          Blizzard Entertainment
          www.blizzard.com/support
          Anyhow, lesson learned... uninstalled it in two seconds and never looked back. I'll just stick to playing Torchlight or something easy that has better linux support

            Diablo III was a fail on every level.

              At least they admit Linux is advantage over windows

              A third party program is any file or program that is used in addition to the game to gain an unfair advantage
              Well, at least even Blizzard admits Linux is advantage over windows, buahahaha . Though I don't see how it's "unfair" granted everyone could download it for free.

                I don't see anything about a Linux client. Did I miss it?

                  Well joking aside, this is a touchy subject for the people that paid 60 (!) bucks for the game! I've read numerous forum posts that many people could not get a refund. If that happened to me I'd be sooo pissed.

                    Linux is not the issue...

                    This blue post should quell any doubts about players getting banned running Diablo III on Linux, or World of Warcraft even:

                      Well, here's the thing. Besides playing single player exclusively, I sometimes enjoy giving myself "unfair advantages" (e.g. a ton of money, the occasional elusive item). Therefore, whoever thinks I should play a game entirely the way they want it, will get $0 of my money.

                        Hopefully this will learn people to:
                        1) Think if they really want to pay 60 bucks to company with a shitty customer service. Customer is always right? Wrong! "Pay $60 and then GTFO, dear customer. We don't even give you hint what's wrong!". Great customer care for your $60, eh? Even regardless of OSes and whatever, I think I deserve better handling for my $60. That's why Blizzard will never have my $60.
                        2) Pay to those who declares native Linux support. No, seriously, the best way to vote is to pay some bucks to those on your side. Not to those who would ban you, refuse refund and don't even give hint what's wrong.

                          If you look around on the forum (http://www.pathofexile.com/forum) you'll find very detailed instructions for running the game in wine. It runs pretty well for me.

                          That game really is way closer to what D3 should have actually turned out like than the 'real' D3. It will be free to play (supported by non p2w micro transactions) in a couple of months. Right now it's $10 for beta access, and well worth it. I had about 350 hours of playtime on my Templar before the last legacy migration. I just started a new Maurader and I'm enjoying playing through the game again from level 1 with no twink items.

                            But it's way better when games provide native linux client. Like Ryzom, Xonotic/Nexuiz, Vendetta Online, etc. So you don't have to install weird piece of software, 32-bit libs (in case of 64-bit OS) and so on. Wine is not a proper support of Linux platform. Proper support is to make native Linux client which does not requires bugged stuff like wine.

                              I'd contend that wine is one of the most successful open source projects in history.

                              Why are we arguing about a game needing to be run under wine in a thread about a different game that has to be run under wine?

                              There's still a very real possibility that Grinding Gear Games will look at a linux port at some point down the road, as well.

                                One step at a time. Show developers that money spent for linux development is money well spent and maybe they'll spend more by providing truly native clients. Though, with all shifty APIs and everything, Wine may the the only sensible target for a while.
