All major features of the game work:
What does not
The game will occasionally disconnect, and will fail to reconnect, causing major problems for playing.
If playing fullscreen, if the game loses focus (e.g. by Alt-Tab), it can't regain focus.
There are two workarounds for the disconnection issue:
For the focus issue, having wine emulate a virtual desktop (in winecfg graphics settings) works around the problem completely.
What was not tested
Real money purchases were not tested
