Sometimes you have to decide, if it's really worth it. Do you really want to give your money to a company that can just take it away with little or no recourse because they arbitrarily decide you're "cheating", or otherwise don't meet the EULA, or they just decide hosting the servers isn't profitable any more and turn 'em off. And yes bleeding edge hardware gets Windows support first - companies writing the drivers know their market (having said that certain companies are much better with their Linux support than others - stares at Nvidia). How quickly that filters down to your Linux distro depends on a number of things, you could of course run a bleeding edge kernel to get the latest support quicker. I've next to no time to game any more (got other activities to do), so it doesn't really bother me, but Doom Eternal is tempting me - always loved the Doom/Quake series.
