Umm.. You are running the game in an emulator. It is possible to use that mechanism to cheat. Linux is not supported by the game, so basically you are someone who uses unsupported third party software which can be used to cheat. There isn't anything mysterious about the ban.


... the ignorance in this post should no longer surprise me, but yet it does.
Can't they just boot up a single linux box after every warden update to check if this happens?
This is just outright disgusting.
Got to love that they ban all the linux users after the 30 day refund cut off...

Not like they couldn't issue a warning or something before right?

Scumbag Blizzard.
It's a shame that you wont get anything back because blizzard doesn't care about you. It is a sad truth but hey at least you had fun while you did.

Wine stands for "Wine Is Not an Emulator". It's actually just an open source implementation of the Windows API. So there should be theoretically no difference, except that one is free.


Wine actually stands for WINdows Emulator, and Wine Is Not an Emulator is a joke.
I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I ain't. Typical Blizzard.

That involves work (for 2 minutes.)

no

The name Wine initially was an acronym for WINdows Emulator.[6] Its meaning later shifted to the recursive backronym, Wine Is Not an Emulator in order to differentiate the software from other emulators.[7] While the name sometimes appears in the forms WINE and wine, the project developers have agreed to standardize on the form Wine.[8]

How old are you ?

What I find ``ridiculous`` is the fact you can`t read .... but can type.

Grab your D3 box, and tell me where it says ``Linux Supported``

Im glad you got banned, one less IDIOT around.

0/10 for another tween crying on the forums


Your trolling is not even amusing, 0/10. If not trolling I find it " ``amusing`` " that you don't know the difference between "supported" and "allowed".
I am appalled by this. Your "cheat" detection is detecting Wine as cheating (Which it didn't do in SC2). On top of this you are REFUSING to refund the money or unban the accounts which are banned.

This is ridiculous.

Irony at its finest. You accuse the OP and others of not being able to read and yet you clearly aren't capable of doing just that.

I blame the schools for creaing people like you.
