So... here's what I don't get.
OSX/Windows are the supported operating systems.
Using WINE on a Linux build is an unsupported operating system.
Now, a lot of the idiots in this thread are saying they could use it to cheat, that they should be banned, that they should use a supported OS.
All the WINE users are saying that they are fine with it being unsupported, but other Blizzard games work and this one is banning them.
All of the !@#$%ing back and forth, name calling, trolling, and whatever rage fueled discourse is completely irrelevant to me because of the following:
Someone here made a reference to another thread that points out it's a memory hiccup with D3 in WINE flagging Warden to ban the account. This is what we would call a 'bug'. These people got banned as a result of a bug with the Warden extension that came as a direct result of playing on an unsupported platform.
Unsupported platform means they flat out told you from the start that they weren't going to help you with bugs or issues, so why are people getting pissed and up in arms about the fact that they aren't helping with a bug issue?
What am I missing here?
Okay, so here's the thing. Lots of things aren't supported. If your computer is on fire, blizzard is not going to support you. If you have too many icons on your desktop and you can't find the diablo icon, that's not supported. If your keyboard is a piece of crap and occasionally keys get stuck, that's not supported either.
That means, if you call blizz with any of these issues, they're not going to support you, they're going to say get your !@#$ together because it's not our fault.
NOW, let's say, your crappy keyboard has a stuck key, and it's sending a hundred keypresses a second. Blizzard doesn't support your keyboard, and they can't fix it for you, so if you call them and say my toon keeps casting a spell because my 1 key is stuck, they'll tell you to GFY.
OKAY, now here's where it's a problem, and this goes beyond support here, this is a blizzard issue, it's blizzard's fault, and blizzard should fix it:
LET'S SAY your keyboard is spamming the 1 key a hundred times a second and blizz decides this is bot behavior. It'd be pretty easy for blizz to look at the logs and say "Hey, this guy's not a bot at all, he's just got a %^-*ty keyboard". Is it right for blizz to ban your account and refuse a refund because of a bug on their end? Just because they don't support your keyboard, does that mean they should be allowed to take away the game you paid for, permanently, because BLIZZARD MADE A MISTAKE?
This isn't linux users asking for technical support, saying the game is running slow or the graphics are glitchy, this isn't a support issue at all in any way, this is a bug in blizzard's warden program, accusing people of cheating, just because they use a configuration that's out of the ordinary. My keyboard really does suck, and if blizz bans me for it some day, I'm going to be super pissed. I'm not going to call them to complain I keep spamming a spell, but if they were to revoke my ability to play the game and refuse to issue a refund
because I was using an "unsupported keyboard" I'd be really choked about that. That's what you're missing.
