I'd also like to post my support for this. I used to play Paladins every day with my wife and brother-in-laws, and we stopped when EAC prevented me from playing. I support games that support Linux, and I have spent a lot on Battle Passes and skins for Paladins over the years; feel free to check my account. Please consider enabling support for Proton. It may not seem important or worth while to you, but money is money, and it will pay for itself and then some.
