    (Edit: On the bright side, Blizzard is a DRM-focused company that isn't interested in Linux support. So I guess I should be grateful that I've lost access the single most anti-Linux program I use. )
    That's a shame... I was just getting into the mood to try Starcraft 2, now that it has become free-to-play. Love that universe and it's story.

    I use Wine mostly via Play on Linux so that I can play GOG versions of games that I loved as a kid. I only buy games on GOG or Steam that either have a Linux version or can be made to run in Wine. I only buy non-Linux software on GOG, so out of my two criteria (DRM free and Linux Native) I always satisfy at least one.

    It does?
    I played it back in the day when it still had a OpenGL backend available on Windows and it worked fine, I just assumed that it was broken after they forced DX11. Maybe I should give it a try again.

    In my case use wine for same goal, play old games and many runs very well actually

    Advance in wine 3.0 will be huge compared wine 2.0

    However as your said online clients will be annoying case uplay

    Most d3d11 games work like crap, but I ran Prey 2017 from start to finish on Wine-staging 2.18 a few months ago and it worked really well after applying a few workarounds. Also tried Witcher 3 but it was more glitchy and it kept crashing so I gave up on that.
