Massive BanWave on Apex Legends for Linux Users
GaGaGaeland Feb 28
There is currently a massive ban-wave on Apex Legends, affecting Linux users.
See :

All Proton's versions seems wrongly detected as cheating : Official Proton and Proton-Experimental, but also Proton-GE.

So be careful and don't connect on the game if you're not banned yet !

@liamd I don't know if it is news worthy, but an article might help shedding light on this issue ?

Update :
Even though EA responded with the meanest message when I appealed my ban :

They started to silently unban people:
I played a game today and confirmed that I'm no longer banned
