What was not tested
Since there are many games, they are not all tested. However, Uplay runs well.
Tested with 64-bit prefix. Only works with winecfg > Windows 10.

install corefonts via winetricks - otherwise login screen would not show
Wine versions before 4.7 failed on Fedora; Please use the latest winehq version
optionally install winbind or similar package that provides ntlm-auth to eliminate some warnings during startup
sudo apt-get install winbind # for ubuntu/debian

But it works fine after running `winetricks d3dcompiler_47`, or after using `winecfg` to add a library override of d3dcompiler_47 as "Native (Windows)".

When creating an entry, please clearly state what _exact_ version is used. The old crappy legacy one (which does not work with new content like anno 1800 beta), or the new one which is simply total incompatible to wine 4.0
The legacy one starts with corefonts installed. The new one just crashes with a wierd message and some bytes displayed.

Installing Uplay in a fresh prefix (with the Windows 7 default setup), then running it to show the login screen seems to run fine... Then, as soon as I strike a key to enter my Uplay username, the whole Wine desktop freezes to death. I tried a few times - same result.
Here is the whole output: pastebin.com/95GN7MAQ (the last line is produced as the desktop freezes).

I`ve tested vanilla 3.20 and 3.19 in ubuntu 18.4; 3.19 works, 3.20 hangs.

If it breaks on the way - you can try to collect the console output and post it here.

002c:err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution."
Also, I set the rasapi32 library as "native", which fixed some other errors.
However, that didn't fix the non-connection problem.
I read that it was declared fixed as of Wine 3.13 Staging. I wonder what's missing in my configuration to get Uplay work with Wine 3.17 Staging (since Linux Mint 17.3 is supposed to be based on Ubuntu 14.04).
Please feel free to move that comment where it belongs.

bought far cry 3: blood dragon with steam and ran into uplay updating and then crashing. windows xp, legacy-uplay -> game launches but FPS is surprisingly low + slowdowns etc. wanted to test x64 + win7 + newer uplay. crash crash crash.
uplay installs but on launch it's "unrecoverable error", exits. i started to investigate the crash with strace to see what is happening, and ... ... it didn't crash....
running "strace -o /dev/null -e trace=network -f wine64 Uplay.exe" actually, slowly, gives me a Uplay login screen and login succeeds. everything after login works. slowly.
of course, game performance is total garbage as the strace slows uplay and the game's uplay-DLL's down significantly :) .... but it works.
posting this so that someone wiser than me might find this useful, perhaps.

1) install cabextract and winehq-staging (see wiki.winehq.org/Ubuntu )
2) download winetricks ( see wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks ) and install corefonts package
3) install latest uplay from uplay.ubi.com
If that installation crashes for you - please post the crash logs (wine logs + debug.log from "Ubisoft Game Launcher" directory)
Maybe we can make something out of it.
Also can you please try to run FC3 independently from uplay launcher, to separate uplay-specific bugs from FC3-specific ones?

Set winecfg to XP.
Uninstalled current uplay. Downloaded & installed legacy uplay.
Tried setting cryptnet.dll to "native" in winecfg -> libraries.
Got working with:

2. Use the Application "PlayOnLinux" to install the newest uplay client (64 Bit / Wine 2.19-staging).
3. Edit the Wine.cfg to Windows 10.
4. Start Uplay.

launch winecfg and set windows version to XP on uplay.exe uplayservice.exe uplaywebcore.exe
restart uplay it will say that the current version is not compatible and let you download the legacy uplay
launch wine uninstaller and disinstall current uplay
install legacy uplay
uplay WILL no more UPDATE
You should be able to login and play
