What does "Now, you will get more points for your kills based on how far into the match you took down your enemy." mean?

- More points the closer to the end of the game you are?
- More points the longer you have been alive since you spawned?
- More points the further you are from your spawn point?
- More points the further you have moved since you spawned?
- More points the further away your enemy was when you killed them?

All of these except the first favour specific classes

NeptNutzSteam has been Microsoft's de facto gaming store for 15 years. Remember GFWL? Who should be bowing down to whom?

I guess that's why Quantum Break, Microsoft's breakout, DX12, UWP, Windows Store, Windows 10, Xbox 'Play Anywhere' flagship title is on Steam.

... and I just bought it on Linux, so that counts as a Steam for Linux sale—and it runs flawlessly on Steam Play!!!

"Thanks Microsoft Studios! This looks like a pretty good game." ;)
I wonder what would happen if some publishers (Microsoft) don't want their games on Proton. Could they prohibit for Valve to make them Proton-compatible?
Microsoft have been known to have their software explicitly check if it runs in Wine, and labeling it as a non-genuine windows installation. It was a long time ago, but I guess nothing stops them from doing it again

How to be a great advocate for a niche gaming platform

morgancoxuk> Play on Linux and soon after purchasing

What happens if I buy a game for Linux, but play weeks after purchasing?

i.e only play on Linux but weeks after purchase?

I ask as that is what I often do.

With Steam, I've heard that the platform you have most playtime on in the game 7 days after purchasing is the one that is counted. If you have 0 playtime after 7 days, it's theplatform you made the purchase from that counts. Android for some reason counts as Windows.

Will see if I can find the source for this

EDIT: The source was GoL, actually. It's from 2014, so things might have changed

As I have made a category "Windows-only bullcrap" on my Steam account and put all windows games in it, it's always a pleasant surprise when a game from this category shows up when I'm filtering on Linux games. This game did that yesterday, so naturally I installed it.

However, on the store page it still showed only the windows logo, and when I tried to run it, it said "Missing executable" or something like that. It might very well be that I'm just missing some 32 bit libraries
