well that took a while apparently someone else is using my email ( email@example.com )
on a twitch account already.
oh and if anyone from the development team is looking at this.
please reword the merge page to make it clear that you now need a twitch account to access mtgs. as for about 30 min i couldn't find a place that said that it was now a requirements. you may what to make it so people can view the trouble shooting section of the forum when they have issues creating an account rather that a blanket redirect to the merge page (had to use an incognito tab to bypass the merge page to get onto the forum to find out what was going on) ( also the whole thing kept crashing took my 15 minutes of my life that i will never get back saying that i was trying to create an account to fast!!! when ever i tried on mobile)
please in future use basic user end test cases before rollout as this just shows shoddy workmanship.
Yea, kinda *****ty that I MUST use my twitch acct. dont want them linked but I have to
Sorry, this is unfortunately hwo it is. In the future, this should be able to lead to some increased integration, especially once MTG Arena has released. See the Hearthpwn website for some examples of what is in store for us.
Can we NOT force an account merge? I was unable to even view the website without creating a Twitch account, which I neither had nor wanted. The page claimed that I had the "option" of merging my accounts, but that was a lie. Further, my account details page now says that I'm supposed to log in to MTGS with my Twitch log-in. I created the Twitch account with a throwaway mailinator email and some random password I'll never remember, because I don't want a Twitch account.
Sorry, the Twitch account merge is mandatory as of today. The merge page likely needs to be updated so that this is clear. I suggest you change the email and password of the Twitch account while you are still able to, otherwise you risk being locked out of your account permanently.
At the very least, can we please use our old MTGSalvation login, even if it has to be merged with a stupid Twitch account that I was forced to create for the express purpose of continuing to use MTGSalvation? Twitch said my first five desired usernames were unavailable, so I had to make up something just for this. What's wrong with the username I've had for 8 years?
Your MTGS name will still show up everywhere, but the Twitch log-in is the new way to log in. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
