Additional Comments

I ran Overwatch in a 64bit clean Wine prefix, since Overwatch's binary is only 64-bit. I also tried in Wine Staging 2.0-RC2 and the results are the same. Wine was set to Windows 7. If it's on Windows XP, Battle.net will not allow you to install Overwatch. If you try to use Vista, Battle.net will crash. Wine set to Windows 7 seems to be the only working configuration for Battle.net to try and test Overwatch. Still insufficient DX11 support in Wine, since Wine can't create a proper DX11 context for Overwatch which is why it crashes. No winetricks or anything else installed. All clean Wine prefixes. System: OS - Ubuntu 16.04 64bit CPU - Intel i7-4770 3.4GHz GPU - Nvidia GTX 1070 8GB (375.26 drivers) RAM - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
