Other than one big problem, the game seems to work exactly as it did in Windows. Full speed and no graphic problems. Custom databases (specifically the latest Lida's Rosters v2.3) worked great. Played a few games, set up my lines, viewed minor league rosters, offered players to other teams. No problems.
What does not
With a clean Wine installation (no winetricks or anything) I could not see the cursor in-game. Which means that in a game that's very heavy in mouse use and navigating through menu's, I had to guess where the cursor was a lot and the only way I knew was when items were highlighted. I bet there's something out there with winetricks that would fix this, but this was a huge problem I noticed.
What was not tested
Extensive aspects of the gameplay, scouting, playoffs, etc.
