Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, and Legacy of the Void, including Starter Editions
Please try the Stater Edition before buying the game to make sure it works on your system (link below). It includes the first campaign (Wings of Liberty) and the Arcade (Mods)
Consider including the following in your test results:
Installing from Battle.net application.
What does not
Does not start. Running Support64/SC2Switcher_x64.exe or Versions/Base73620/SC2_x64.exe directly gives:
003b:err:seh:setup_exception stack overflow 880 bytes in thread 003b eip 0000000000000000 esp 00000000093f12a8 stack 0x93f0000-0x93f0000-0x9bf0000
and the process SC2_x64.exe sits as a zombie.
What was not tested
Everything (does not run).
Versions before Starcraft II patch 4.8.2 were playable (tested: all 4 campaigns, 1v1 training, 1v1, weekly mods).
Debian's WINE versions 4.0 (stable) and 4.2 (wine-development) give the same results.

If using custom gamma settings or using an application that automatically changes gamma (e.g. redshift) then at specific times, your gamma setting may reset for a short time.
To fix this, open the registry editor and navigate to:
Inside the newly created "X11 Driver" add the chain value "UseXVidMode" and set it to "N".
After a Battle.net update or a crash, there are sometimes old processes left running that may interfere with your next launch. These processes can be killed before trying again:
killall -i -r '.exe'
Or you can do this manually (and more safely):
ps x #and then....kill as necessary after you got the process ID in the first column
#of course it doesn't hurt to take a look at the manual for these commands:
You can download the StarCraft II Starter Edition for free via the Battle.net Launcher, which includes the first campaign (Wings Of Liberty) and the Arcade (Mods).
Please test how / if the game works before buying it.
