Why can't we merge account with Steam? (assuming FAQ is still correct on this topic)

Recommended Posts

I'm on Linux, and want to make it easy to play the game with Proton.  I know there are other ways to do this, but why do I have to go through that if I can just use Steam? Is there a really good reason that is of benefit to ArenaNet not to let us just use the Steam launcher?   Will that potentially be changed later?  I wouldn't expect a lot of effort to be required for it. I assume one reason for issues might be that our purchases through Steam will go partly to Valve, but to be clear, I value the service Steam provides a great deal because they put a lot of money into development on my platform so I actually think they more than make it worth it to me to accept that if I'm to buy something else on Steam.  I think I should be able to make that decision without having to give up what is in my account.

You can launch your regular account through Steam by using the launch option "-provider Portal" (or launch your Steam account regularly using "-provider Steam"). You just can't use Steam to buy expansions/gems for your regular account.
