    PlanetSide 2 on Linux
    • In November, we quietly enabled compatibility with Proton and whitelisted the game through Valve.
    • While there are no plans to natively support Linux at this time, you are free to play PlanetSide 2 from the platform at risk to your own device. We do not ban accounts for playing from a Linux operating system.
    Network issues on Emerald
    • Since mid November, our east coast servers have been struggling during peak times, and on some continents more than others.
    • We continue to investigate the cause of this issue as our highest priority, and are taking steps to address and mitigate the problem where we can.
    • For the time being, the Census API output to our East Coast servers (Emerald/Jaegar) has been taken offline to remove a variable from the equation during our investigation.
