Hello dear FAF Users!
Some of you might be aware that we are currently trying to not share any copyright protected code.
Approximately four months ago, after discussion with sheeo, downlord, and others to verify it was enough time, Visionik (the owner of FAForever) has enforced a deadline for this to be done by the end of this year.
Since this deadline will not be met we will have to enable mandatory steam linking for all users from the 31st of January (up to now only new users had to link their faf account to steam).
The mandatory steam link will stay in place until no copyright protected assets are being distributed.
You will NOT be able to log in to FAForever via the client if your FAF account is not linked to a steam account with Supreme Commander Forged Alliance in the inventory.
You can use your cd key from your retail copy of supreme commander forged alliance to get a free copy of the game on steam or to buy the game while it is on sale – regional prices can be found here.
Should there be any issues with linking your faf account to steam then feel free to post on the tech support sub forum so we can help you out.
The FAForever Team
