Battle.net on Mint 19

Guys,

so anyone have actually tried or am playing Battle.net under Mint 19 currently? Because it seems to me that it is broken, unless I am doing something wrong. After 20 hours or so of trying things like PlayOnLinux and such I was finally able to launch Battle.net farely easy using this solution here: https://lutris.net/games/battlenet/ (IMPORTANT: if you search for World of Warcraft on Lutris you will NOT get this page and installer. You will get the other one, that would not even start for me on Mint). Problem is that I can't get it to work persistently. E.g. it started for me one day, but crushed with Application encountered an unexpected error the other day.
Now I do understand that the software itself was coded like shit and glitches of Battle.net are reported even for Windows daily. But what can we, Mint users, do to have it available and working? :?

I've tried with playonlinux and wine with no success, but with Lutris I was able to install Hearthstone

Anyone tried running Overwatch on Mint? I'm playing on my windows machine currently but I'd like to have it on my Mint machine as well. If anyone has some quick guides that would be very helpful
