    Default Connect your Steam account to your Org profile!

    We have integrated the Steam ID system into the Org forums. If you look at my profile to the left of this post, you can see a small steam icon at the bottom. If you click that, you will get various options that allow you to contact me on Steam. This will be very useful for coordinating MP gaming, particularly with the upcoming Tosa Cup tournament.

    To add your Steam ID to your profile, do the following:
    1) If you have given your Steam ID a profile name, skip to #3.
    2) If you have not given your Steam ID a profile name, you need to find your Steam ID #. To do this, go the Steam website and search for your username. When you find your name, click on your profile page. The URL will include a long number. For example, my page has the URL http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197996989606. Therefore, 76561197996989606 is my Steam ID.
    3) Add your Steam profile name or ID # to your Org profile. Simply click this link. Scroll down to the text box Steam ID, and enter the profile name or Steam ID #. That's it, you're done!

    FYI, I gave my Steam account a profile name and I don't see that long number - I see my profile name:

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/Gregoshi/home

    So when I added my Steam account to my Org profile, I only had to type in "Gregoshi". I'm a name, not a number.

    Edit: If you enter your Profile name, it gets converted to your Steam ID#...so apparently I am a number.

    same thing happen to me Gregoshi. I don't mind though, easier to remember a name than those random numbers :P

    Interesting, my user name doesn't work, but then I never gave a profile name. I'll add that bit to the instructions, thanks for the heads up.

    well its not the issue with your username working or not its that you have the chance to rename your steamID to whatever you want. Some of us used the same username that we use here :P

    so its just a coincidence basically :)

    Steam integration has been expanded into the tournament utility itself. All players who have connected their Steam accounts with their Org profiles now display a direct Steam contact link right on the tournament bracket itself so that players do not need to navigate away from the bracket to locate their opponent.

    To ensure that ease of use becomes standard in all official Org-sponsored tournaments, players will be required to add their Steam account information to their Org profiles before their registrations will be accepted.

    I added my name in the "Steam ID" box in the settings. Others seem to have done it that way. I guess I'll find the number and enter the number instead.

    If that doesn't help, I'll take you up on your offer TinCow.

    Thanks much.

    Your Steam name only works if you've actively changed your Steam ID to your profile name. If you haven't, then you have to use the Steam number, which is the default. Yes, it's confusing, but that's how Steam works.
