    I've played Diablo 3 enough to get a couple of characters up into the 50s. I played earlier this morning for a short while... no problems connecting. Whatever flagged these very vocal gamers for getting banned was not the fact that they are using wine.

    I suggest people not buying it.

    I am reading through the thread right now and REALLY want to take down the names of the idiots saying that "unsupported operating system = ban" just to shame them later. Too many idiots.

    I think Blizzard gamers playing on Linux need to make a petition.

    Blizzard uses Linux for Battlenet for AGES now.

    There are a lot of people who buy and pay for Blizzard products, but have to play it via WINE.

    Blizzard should finally get over this and make official Linux clients for its games.

    Even if its made via winelib, it should be official, should be CRC'able so it plays well with their anti-cheating system.

    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:

    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.
