But... how MANY machines participated in the survey?

Valve's Steam Play should work better today, as DXVK was left in debug mode causing a performance drop

When I try playing Doom multiplayer my game crashes as soon as it finds a match... is this happening to anyone else?

Also, I'm in a pinch to make a PS3 or X360 controller work on Monster Hunter World, if anyone has a clue on how to configure that (using SteamPlay), please let me know :)

I have more than 100 hours on Rust, but the last time I played was a long time ago. Even so, if they totally remove Linux support, I'll contact Valve to issue a refund, because I don't think they can sell a product with one feature (Linux support) and them remove it just because of their random reasons. I don't want to keep this game on my library if it doesn't have Linux support anymore.

Maybe it's similar to the PS3 Linux case, where Sony had to give cash back to all PS3 owners that had Linux support (pre-Slim).

winepak, a project to get Windows games packaged with Wine & Flatpak for an easy Linux installation

TheSHEEEPThat's a good idea, but my hope is that such functionality should be made official and implemented within Wine itself.
After all, Wine's biggest problem is that is simply doesn't "just work". There's always some fiddling around required.

Trying to pair my switch pro controller with my Linux PC (Ubuntu MATE 18.04), but it's not working (can't get it paired). Any tricks?

LOL. I'd rather have Fortinite than DayZ on Linux.

Tibia is a free to play MMO that has supported Linux for a long time, fix included for Ubuntu

LudacrossWhich would make Ultima Online the Tibia Clone ;)

Ultima and Ultima Online are quite different.
Search for images of "Ultima VI" and you'll see that Tibia is pretty much a clone of it.

Ultima Online, on the other hand, is a completely different (and superior) game :D
