Why is showing your game ID a bad idea?
Not your game ID but your account number. The game uses that number to link to your personal profile.
Thank you. I appreciate the information.
Worst case scenario, someone could use that ID to supplant you, report a lost password, then get into your account to change the password and steal your account and heroes.
I’ve never heard of that happening in the forum but, better safe than sorry, right?
Forum rule prohibit me actually telling you past game forum mod horror stories that would allow you figure out how to successfully mess with a person’s Empires account, or other game accounts
Do not show your game ID. It allows unscrupulous individuals to steal your game, more or less.
Because we said so
I really have no clue. If someone wants my account number, take it. Account sucks anywyas, better off startin from scratch
