Someone needs to help me get KOG to port this to Linux
Earlier this year, I started this game, but then had to go to Linux when Windows just happily broke on me. They really, REALLY should consider putting this on Linux, it would reach even more people, growing the community for it. It would be so epic to see this on Linux, considering Linux already has over two hundred games ported to it. And Elsword is free...just like Linux. There's no real reason it shouldn't expand to Linux.

+1 for Linux version. I would like to see this kind of games ported to the platform.

Problaby won't happen since not enough people use Linux or Mac and it would be a waste of resorces and money to make a client just for those two OS's when just like I said there is not enough people using those OS's.

Some of the anti-hack tools won't work on Linux (Example: X-Trap).

Plenty of people use Linux! And their actually considering it; just email KOG and tell them! They told me they were considering, so maybe if enough people ask!
Just try guys! And tell others you know to try too!

Porting something like this to linux is a crazy difficult task, having looked at portions of the core code... That being said, it might be possible, and I wouldn't complain, so support...

Plenty of people? Doesn't Linux hold like less than 5% of the market share? I doubt the number of people who use Linux and are interested in playing this game is even near the number that would make it worth porting over to. Time and money not well spent, imo. Not to mention as someone already said, their anti hack tools like xtrap do not work on Linux. So that's even more time and money they'd have to spend coming up with something new or a work around.

Not happening, don't hold your breath.
