Heads-up! Get Steam to refund Rocket League!


It seems that Epic Games have decided to stop Rocket League on Linux. I obtained a refund from Steam today and suggest anyone who bought rocket League do the same.
It would appear that Epic Games have a No Linux policy so I expect anything from them will drop Linux support.

Dang, that's foolish, but probably will work out well for them for a while, which will most likely be enough bought time to move on to some other project.
Still, the fated year of the Linux desktop is growing ever closer (as well as hands reaching from the cold earth around its body), with Steam and Proton, Windows and it's weird hybridy thing now, etc.

If I remember correctly then they've actually given Blender some epic grant thing or whatever, recently too.
I don't understand this unless they have some EEE plan on the backburner, or similar.

I can't think in their dimensions, but I'm also not very wealthy or prolific so, lol, there's that. Still, why distance oneself from Linux, I mean, it DOES have the capability to run proprietary binaries, after all, and GPU APIS are getting more and more unified, too.

So strange to me.

Thanks. I basically asked Steam to refund me on Epic's behalf because the game will no longer be fit for purpose. Have to admit though I'd not played much, which may or may not have anything to do with it. I was planning on getting some practice in and playing with friends but never got around to it.
