Yes. Also on front page http://appdb.winehq.org/ on first item:
The Top-10 Platinum List
Ragnarok Online All Versions
Maintainer¡Çs Rating: Platinum
Description: What was not tested
* Installation. That was not necessary because I
already installed it in Windows - I'm just running
RO from the Windows partition.
So that appdb classification is complete garbage.
If Platinum requires that installation works out of box, and
tester did even tested installation and still gives platinium.
So first item on http://appdb.winehq.org/ says "don't trust me".
