What does not
The game suffers from a memory leak and gets slower as time goes on. Eventually it either consumes the computer's entire memory or becomes unbearably slow and requires a restart.
Crashes are much, much more often compared to Windows. They happen every thirty or so in-game years for me.
The in-game screenshot tool does not work and instead saves black pictures into the screenshots folder.
The game might fail to work at all and show a black screen instead, but tinkering with the settings should eventually get it working.

I installed Europa Universalis 4 the game. It run. But I did face the sound problem. It twitch. Maybe someone met with such problem? If so, please, suggest me problem solving. I used wine 3.0 during installing. I use PlayOnLinux for installing games.

- looked into error log:
c:\Users\USER\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\logs\error.log
... SimpleVertexShader.vertexshader error: syntax error, unexpected NEW_IDENTIFIER ...
- winetricks d3dcompiler_43 fixed it for me
