WoW with Wine and PlayOnLinux


SOLVED. Ready to be closed.

I would like to play it without those big platforms, i'm not pro, but i hope there is a possibility to work around the problem. 

I got the best results by using Lutris -

I tried to install as non-listed game, wine-version: 5.0-3ubuntu1. POL creates the desktop shortcut...

If i start, wine says: Blizzard Background Downloader: Data for the next patch is not available.

The Terminal shows:

--- Code: ---
  Looking for python... 3.8.5 - skipped
Looking for python2.7... 2.7.18 - wxversion(s): 3.0-gtk3
