Voted No. I'd rather see the developers work on items the majority of the playerbase want fixed, rather than spend time on items that only benefit a minority. If the everything in the game worked better at the moment, I'd vote yes, as I have no other reason for being anti- this idea.

This topic is hilarious. But I take nothing against OP, his naive view of Wargaming makes me warm and cuddly.

 

Given the WG's fine track record of development expertise, and even finer track record of caring for the players, I say that the chances of Linux port happening are nil, and even if it would come it would be something that works even worse than the Windows client, which is already flimsy.

 

Play on Wine like I do, It's probably for the best. Please, for the love of God, don't ask these guys to even attempt software development for Linux. Even the very idea of it makes me shudder.

Nah i'd rather they focus their effort and energy into the game itself instead of catering to the 1% of users on Linux OS.

In my opinion, I'm fine with WG only developing the client for Windows. Keep in mind, Linux runs OpenGL, not DirectX. By adding support for more operating systems, that also creates the need of more updates, maintenance, bugs etc. All in all, it will take so much extra development time from WG, development time that they could have used for making the game itself better. Use Windows if you want to play games, it's a really nice OS.

If everything worked fine at the moment, they could still use that development time to add new stuff ;)

What's wrong with WINE?

Tbh though. I'm waiting for proton to support more than just Steam games.

DirectX->Vulcan translation is sweet.

You can already use it outside steam, just copy proton folder from steam game installation and add it to your wine prefix... not tried myself but it is on YT. 

As for rest Windows is plastick OS and Microsoft force you in many ways... for exp updates. And what about other things like privacy... ;) On BSD, or Linux your free to make your OS the way you want it. Guess i am still gonna play more WT atm. :)

Hi

 

Could you specify it a littlebit, how to do it. All this day i spent on to reading up, how the heck i could play a game at least, what id like to play on win, but i got sooo hungry, i have to stop to continue it, and go to the shop to get something to bite. 

Currently running ubuntu 18.04, updated kernel to 4.20 and 18.50 amdgpu-pro for my rx480, and now reading up about proton, in steam, and began search how to run wot with it.

Voted all 3 options because I could, and because I couldn't care less.

Lutris seems to be quite an easy way to make WOT run under linux. RX480 here, open source drivers and Linux mint 19.

After using Lutris installer to install wot, only thing I needed to to was to disable the windows 10(?) desktop, with that enabled by default I didn't manage to get WOT to play on my primary monitor. Only problem currently is that alt-tabbing out of the client while a battle is on process breaks mouse aim. And that so far I don't know how to run replays.

Is WINE any good these days? Haven't used it since maybe 2008 or something and it was rather...erm...unreliable at the time.

It's really good these days.

Proton, mentioned above is Valve's modification of it, to provide Vulcan support and a few other enhancements, but the core of it is WINE.

Awesome. Might have to have a fiddle at some point. Been a while since I played with Linux distros. Might have a fiddle with Arch. Always wanted to make my own OS from scratch. ;)

Arch is too mainstream.

We love our privacy and we really don't want to use Microsoft or Apple products just because we want to game from time to time. So, please wargaming, do a Linux port at least.
