The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results

What works

  • Launching the game (a window pops up and says "failed to launch the game" but it still starts in another window)
  • Creating an account
  • Logging in
  • Social features (friends, chat, etc.)
  • Customizing champions
  • The initial game tutorial runs perfectly fine
  • Selecting a game and a champion

What does not

  • On first launch (ie just after installing from steam), some installers fails and the game doesn't start (see workaround below)
  • Multiplayer games (ie the main part of Paladins) are stuck on the loading screen (after selecting champions), no workaround here.
  • Once in a while, the multiplayer game actually starts, but Paladins spuriously returns to the main menu (ie the match crashes) after 10 seconds to 2 minutes of playing.


To be able to launch the game, I've installed some libraries with winetricks:

  • winetricks msxml3 dotnet45 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 directx9

What was not tested

  • Ranked games, which I cannot try because of my low level in the game

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

The situation seems to be much better than with previous Wine versions: the game installs and starts, and you can play a few minutes if you're lucky enough to not be stuck before the match begins.
