The "Wine prefix" (also known as a "Wine bottle") is the place where Wine puts, among other things, a virtual 'drive C'. When you "trashed" your Wine prefix, you put something in it that Wine can't handle, like actual DX9 DLLs. (They warned you not to use the 'directx9' verb with winetricks!)

That deletes the Wine prefix. Nothing horribly dangerous, but you'll have to install Garena and War3 again (like I said).

Oh, you used MacPorts.

Are you running Snow Leopard? On SL, MacPorts defaults to building 64-bit (if the system supports it). You have to make sure mesa (the port that provides GL support; MacPorts should have installed it when you installed wine-devel) was built +universal if you're on SL. What does:

 port installed mesa

say? (Type it into the Terminal.)

That sucks :\ .
