App uses auto-update.
Installs and runs fine. The UI works better than Origin currently does (no background windows failing to register, no graphics corruption, no issues with the window "jumping" when dragged, etc.). Also, no DLL overrides or registry hacks are required (unlike dwrite.dll for Steam). I can confirm production activation is working as well.
What does not
Fails to synchronize cloud saves. Also, the "Edit avatar" option results in an "unrecoverable error" pop-up, and doesn't work.
What was not tested
I didn't try adding Facebook friends (as I don't have a Facebook account).
Tested in a 64-bit wine prefix. The cloud sync issue is bug #34733.
