Not your game ID but your account number. The game uses that number to link to your personal profile.

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?

Not exactly.

BUT.

Close enough

Just keep your game info to yourself

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.
