Diablo3 Linux gamers got banned ..again

Previous week more messages appeared on forums and reddit of banned Diablo 3 Linux gamers. Early this year Blizzard banned quite some account who abused Linux and virtual machines to (successfully) farm Diablo 3 realms. With the option to sell those pickups for real money. Pretty impressive, however Blizzard began banning accounts they also  banned many Linux gamers – who are not cheaters.

We’ve extensively tested for false positive situations, including replicating system setups for those who have posted claiming they were banned unfairly. We’ve not found any situations that could produce a false positive, have found that the circumstances for which they were banned were clear and accurate, and we are extremely confident in our findings.

Playing the game on Linux, although not officially supported, will not get you banned – cheating will.
