how to play ddo on ubuntu 12.4

I enjoy playing this game every now and then, but I wish to no long use windows for anything. Can I play DDO with linux (Ubuntu 12.4 to be more accurate), or is this type of game for windows and mac only?
Thank you for your time

With wine you might be able to, just use ubuntu software center to install wine.

I tried using wine but the game behaves poorly, like using iTunes through it.
Thank you

I'm keeping Windows 7 on my gaming PC. I'm running Mint 12 on my laptop. I've tried a few games using Wine. But in general it's a no-go.

I'd recommend stick to Windows for gaming. Only game I got running without hiccups is StarCraft. Other games didn't start or did not have hardware acceleration making it a slow experience.

Linux gaming

I have been using Fedora for the past few years and I have been able to game without too many headaches.
I am currently playing Dungeons & Dragons Online with Wine and have no problems. It even runs better on Linux then it does on my windows xp box. I have played Olbivion, Quake 4, Starcraft, Left For Dead and many other High end games on Linux.

My box specs:
Core 2 Duo 2.6Ghz
2gb ram
Nvidia GT440 1gb
Fedora 17 - update to date.
Wine 1.5.16

Windows XP sp3
P4 2.2 Ghz
2.5 gb ram
Nvidia GeForce 6 512mb

How did you get DDO to not fractal up on the log-in screen? For me it's very pixelated and unreadable. It's been a while since I tried it so the exact details kind of elude me, but I also remember the game just falling to a black screen after I did log in.
