Merging Accounts Wed, 17 April 2013 22:43
My question is simply this. I have DoW games on Steam, iPad, iPod, and a DoW account. I was hoping to merge these accounts so that my achievements would show up on my DoW account. But it seems that the merge account feature is only for merging DoW accounts and not my Apple ID and Steam accounts. If this is so then how do I show my achievements in the forum because it doesn't list that I own these games and my accounts can't be merged. Does this make any sense? I tried to word it the best I could. I am also concerned because as the new Small World will be coming out for iPad I want my Kickstarter races and powers to be on my account for all of my devices.

That doesn't sound possible since it would require Valve, Apple and DoW to all share their network with each other. DoW might be able to read some things from your copy of the game if you are logged into your DoW account and post that here, but actually merging your Steam ID with an Apple account will probably never happen.

Well is there any way to link a gamecenter account to an existing DoW account?

My DoW stats are pretty misleading - because I use iOS for all multiplayer games.

Maybe, I'm guessing Gamecenter is an Apple thing? If so, then Apple has to let DoW snoop through your data and post it here. It's not that this last idea is necessarily impossible, hell your Steam profile and achievements can be viewed publicly if you select the option. It's more about what information in your account a developer is allowed to have access to under the agreements they are bound by.

I think that's why many apps have you sign into some 3rd party service that tracks your achievements. When they do that they aren't bound by Apple's rules anymore. Of course DoW could do this by linking all achievements to your existing account here, but then it's possible they might not also be able to give you any Apple or Steam achievements. My copy of Far Cry 3 on Steam has no Steam achievements, only Uplay ones. I don't know if that was Ubisoft's choice or if it was forced on them by the terms of Steam.

I will say that while I don't expect Steam, Apple and DoW to work together I am also wondering how to get my Game Center scores to be able to show up in my DoW account. More importantly I have a Kickstarter bonus in Small World that can be applied to my account and used on all of my platforms but how can this be possible if my accounts separate entities.
