Alright, I tried to make a ticket about this but it seems it's just been flat-out ignored. I originally had an account using the client given by the creators of Stronghold Kingdoms, Firefly Studios. Then, after a while, I decided I wanted a way to obtain crowns without using my CC. So I looked up various game cards, and realized that Ultimate Game Card had a Stronghold Kingdoms option. So, I picked one up. When I got home, I realized it worked through Aeria Games. So, I shrugged, made an account, and used the card on there. Then, I come to find out that I have to download Aeria's client. Once again, everything seems alright, just a bit of an annoyance. Finally, I download the client and am confronted with an Aeria Account login, instead of the username/password setup normally provided in the client I used from the game creator. So now I have come to the conclusion that, to use the Aeria Points, I need to create a totally new village.
I sent a ticket asking if linking my current account with my Aeria Games account was possible. This was about a week ago, and I have yet to receive a reply. I'm hoping that the community will at least provide me some answers, even if it just means I'm out twenty bucks because of how Aeria Games decided the system should work.
