Apparently you can fix this yourself. I have not had the need to try it but according to some it works.
This is a fix for ultimate but I guess it should work for great war also given that it is the same engine. It definitely is worth trying.

find the .app file (steam can point you towards it).
Right click the file and pick the option "show package content". Inside you will find a file named "wineskin"
Start it and you will get a menu with 3 options. Pick "set screen options"
Uncheck "Auto detect GPU info for direct3D".

This should hopefully fix the issue. I cannot test it though as I have yet to upgrade to 10.13
