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:
-Unit Preloader map on Arcade
The game runs so much better than on staging with 3.0-rc2. Full 60 frames most of the time on Extreme. Not as great as native of course but much much better than staging.
What does not
Creep kills framerate. Horribly.
Disable creep graphics in your Variable.txt. Creep really does not play well with Wine.
What was not tested
Most Arcade Maps
Really really happy with how this is running on 3.0-rc2. Hopefully this stays like this up to release. Wonderful gameplay, happy to be able to actually play this game on Linux now.

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.
