You all have probably heard this a thousand times on these forums, but for the life of me I can't find any peritnent threads.

OK, from the top . . .

When STO launched, I created a Cryptic account , and had lots of fun until I stopped playing. Somewhere along the line, I also created a Perfect World account to play Forsaken World and I also played Champions Online.

I came back to STO some time later (after the merger with PWE) and booted up STO only to discover that my account no longer had any characters on it! I had logged in using my Perfect World account unknowingly. I created a character and jumped right in. Shortly thereafter, I discovered that I needed to use my old Cryptic account to play my characters. I did so and had fun.

The problem comes in when I tried to merge the accounts. I now have STO characters on both the Cryptic account AND the PW account. I can log into the Cryptic account and see history and activated features of my original account, but I can't seem to find a way to link it.

I realize this is extremely confusing, but hopefully you guys hear this enough to muddle through what I'm trying to explain here. How can I go about getting all of these accounts merged into a single account? OR How can I go about reversing the merger and go back to using single accounts. Can PW unlink my accounts and let me do it again to correctly link them this time?

I have to say, this would be an easy fix if they had a better support channel. No phone, no live chat. Just a 3-6 day email wait? That's pretty unacceptable. Hopefully you forum guys can come through for me.

Thanks in advance!

Hello ikob!

I'm sorry to be the one to say this; you'll have to wade through the support lanes provided here. There's really nothing anyone outside of PWE can do for you, sadly. I wish you the best with this.

Best regards,

I was afraid of that. Anyway, thanks for the reply. Guess I'll just have to content myself for the time being with a new character until I can get it all sorted with support.

Thanks for that link. I'm aware this is for peer to peer support, hence why I posted here. However, I was under the impression that PWE never posted in forums and that the ONLY course of action we as players had short of community support was e-mail correspondence. Again, thanks for the link. I'll try reposting there.
