But it does not mention if you can link your steam account with your current account. ONLY that you'll keep your stuff on the current account. So he isn't really wrong.
Tatsu asked if we have to restart from scratch if we want to play "there" (=Steam).
Flloyd said, we will keep all the stuff, so there must be the possibility to move your data or to link your current Account to your Steam Account.
But hey, not the first time that they're announcing stuff and then have to cancel it when they run into their usual "technical issues".
Perhaps, Helix can share his knowledge about their new plans about existing Accounts and Steam?
Would be VERY interesting to know, if we wasted our money or not?
