DesumOh goodie. The ultimate DRM and censorship scheme. I'm so excited this is being warmly received because the servers happen to be running on Linux.
I totally understand your concerns here, I really do, I pointed out the issues with it numerous times already. It's not just that it runs Linux, it runs on Linux too with Chrome so it can help plug another gap in gaming for those who want it. Still, not entirely sure who their market is exactly...

I'm sure I've seen you post something like this before, more than once...
I guess I might have? It just seems to get worse by the day, so this release reminded me of the less-than-awesome state of big-box native titles. Sorry if I have annoyed you (and judging by you pointing it out, I assume that I have). I will just shut up, I guess? In my defence, if people are discouraged from making the same point more than exactly once, I guess we need to stop discussing Proton and WINE in general, and several other Linux gaming topics too, as people tend to make the same pro and con points over and over there as well?
No need to be so confrontational over it? I was answering a point that seems to just come up often. You're welcome to bring it up of course. Discourse is welcome, I'm not about to stop people discussing Linux's lack of AAA support.

The wider point though is: what do people expect? I ask that honestly. I just find it thoroughly odd to see it mentioned often. Linux is still hovering below 1% when looking at Steam and there's been no push from anywhere else either. AAA isn't just going to appear on Linux for no reason.

Feral, Aspyr and VP were pretty much the only ones doing AAA for us anyway. They all slowed down for one reason or another. VP do...well nothing? Aspyr do hardly anything either except update Civ and Borderlands 2/TPS (although Linux is STILL waiting on that) and Feral branched out to mobile and Switch as well.

Edit: Actually Aspyr also branched out to Switch now too.

Quoteand it will work across devices right away (so you don't need to use that fancy Chromecast Ultra). As long as your Linux PC has a Chrome browser installed, it should work fine.

I don't get this it should work on normal chrome browser even on android phones??. So then it should work in a normal Chromecast UH?
From what I read somewhere, it's because the original Chromecast doesn't support VP9.

BrazilianGamerQuestion. Will it work on Chromium?
Possibly not. Will be able to test hopefully next month.

PatolaGood opportunity to introduce them to Linux, nudge nudge wink wink!
They know about Linux since they're born.
But well ... they're young gamers, not really sensible to Linux wonders yet.
Well if you buy it from the Feral store, you ensure Feral get the money.

POSTAL 4: No Regerts released into Early Access, Linux version likely in future

QuoteSo if you do want to see this gain actual Linux support, it might be worth politely letting them know in this linked forum post.

Better add it to your wishlist...
Not better actually, since you only show up as a Linux wishlist if you manually go into the buried Steam platform preferences and only tick Linux. It's a nice idea but the execution of the feature needs improving.

For those surprised we're covering this, I'll just leave this here I found at a Christian-run toy shop.

Dota 2 matchmaking may be less terrible now for solo players and more difficult for toxic people

TimeFreezeAh yes Dota....its a good game. Till you get some trolls who Teleport you onto a rock where you cant get down from. Yeah....fun times.
Oh jeez, I remember someone doing that to me every single time they saw me and they were on my team. Some people really are just out to piss others off online thinking they're funny.

Geppeto35Do you know games like CS:GO danger zone without this mass of cheaters?
All massively popular games have a lot of cheaters in them, sadly. They constantly ban accounts but more keep coming.
