World Of Warcraft Legion

Following recent events in the Broken Isles, a link has been created between Azeroth and Kil'jaeden's homeworld of Argus, bringing the Burning Legion closer than ever to destroying Azeroth. In order to stop them once and for all, Illidan and Velen are taking the war directly to the surface of Argus, where they hope to join forces with Alleria, Turalyon, and the Army of the Light to launch an all-out assault on the Legion's primary base of operations.

Additional Comments

This is fairly specialized report as my configuration is a little on the strange side. I am running the following hardware / software combination AMD Ryzen 1700x @ 3.9GHz AMD RX 480 8GB with fully opensource drivers Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 with all current updates as of 05.16.2017 Mesa 17.2 git build as of 05.16.2017 (oibaf ppa) Ubuntu upstream kernel 4.11 (upstream kernel ppa) Official Wine 2.6 and Unofficial Wine with nine 2.6 I'll start off saying the Unofficial Wine with nine 2.6 had superior FPS to the Official wine but suffered from severe graphical corruption. Sadly there were triangular polygons flashing all over the screen nonstop when the nine feature was enabled. With the nine feature disabled the game ran perfectly fine but with much lower frame rates. I have a frame rate table below for illustration. Official Wine 2.6 ran perfectly fine with similar frame rates to the unofficial build with nine disabled. All tests were taken in various locations in Aszuna Official Wine 2.6 graphic setting 7 25-35 FPS Official Wine 2.6 graphic setting 4 45-50 FPS Unofficial Wine 2.6 with nine enabled graphic setting 7 60-75 FPS Unofficial Wine 2.6 with nine enabled graphic setting 4 99 FPS Unofficial Wine 2.6 with nine disabled graphic setting 7 25-35 FPS Unofficial Wine 2.6 with nine disabled graphic setting 4 45-50 FPS So for all practical reasons the game runs fine, just a lower frame rate than native. Which has been the norm for some time now. This is my reasoning for the gold rating.
