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.A third party program is any file or program that is used in addition to the game to gain an unfair advantage
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.
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.
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.

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.
