"...with the first link, the chained is forged."

Well, I knew this was coming sometime. I never actually had a Cryptic account to link though. I hope this doesn't cause more forum rage... well now that I think about it, that's nearly impossible since you'd still have to link your account to post on the forums.

"With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably."

These words ring as true today, as they did when first uttered some 20 years ago, on the TNG episode 'The Drumhead'.

No I'm not... but the quote does ring in my head again whenever I think about the merging for some odd reason.

Linking Problems, lost everything
 
After linking my accounts, I lost everything that was on my Cryptic account. Characters and ZEN points. Idk if that's supposed to happen, I emailed customer service.

If that is the case, the linking process did not complete. Try signing into the launcher with your old Cryptic account and go through the linking process again :)

I am unable to link my cryptic account as of this change because they seem to have disabled any mention of Cryptic accounts in the login menu. I assume this was a programming error.

When I open the launcher, it just says 'log in with your account,' there's no Cryptic or PW option. After I hit 'Engage,' I only see the character from my PW account. When I hit 'back' to try to log in again, logging in with PW returns me to that same screen, logging in with Cryptic gives me an error message informing me that I must log in with PW account.

Please review the linking instructions here: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=784201

I'll be monitoring this thread to review your results.
