League of Legend For Linux?

Comment by hazrpg
about League of Legends · Aug 2011 · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Hmm, this is interesting... since I don't see any mention of Linux anywhere on the website (nor is there a download for such). I understand that you can run League of Legend via Wine - however I have been unable to do this myself, but I'm sure others have.

I guess my real question is, should this be edited, since League of Legends isn't Linux (native) supported? Just wondering, since I'm not sure as to what the full guidelines are for listings.


Our general policy is to only add the WINE tag to applications that has official support for WINE stated bu the author of the app.

I thought that might be the case. Thanks for your reply :). I'll go ahead and edit this, since League of Legends isn't officially supported.

I added in the description a link to a tutorial for the installation with WINE :)
