You're pushing the edge of the envelope here, but I'll let it go for now because you're asking about people's experience on Fedora.

Hi, I'm not playing League of Legends, but I play other Windows games on Linux/Fedora.

The main problem is simple -- Fedora is not Windows, if game doesn't have native Linux version, you will always have to use Wine and hope it works. You can check on Wine website if the game works and you can try some tools like PlayOnLinux that can help you with installing games using Wine.

If the game doesn't run or there are some problems, it's (in 99 % cases) problem of Wine, not Fedora and it won't be better in other distributions.

Stable version of Wine is available in official repositories and Wine provides repository with newest devel ("staging") version --

@TWTOoth Are you kidding or is it just that you don't have the slightest clue what vtrefny is talking about?!

Wine is a tool ("compatibility layer") that allows you to run applications originally written for Windows on Linux. MS SQL Server is a database server, it's something completely different.

I posted link for the "Wine Application Database", but this is just a website with list (=databse) of Windows applications and information about how these perform with Wine.
