    How to buy empire points ?

    I switched to the steam version of the game because I don't have enough free space on my C:\ drive to play the Live version.

    But I still have around 1600 Microsoft Points on my account with which I would like to buy Empire Points.

    How do I do that ?

    You'll need to wait until later Friday/Saturday morning for all of the payment systems and indeed the new client Pykke. I'm not sure however that you can buy EP with MS points, you'd need a dev/mod to answer that one.

    Yeah I saw on the launcher that MS points can't be used yet to acquire Empire points, only steam can be used atm.

    But how will I be able to purchase Empire points with my remaining MS Points ? Can I use the steam version for that or will I need the Live version ?

    From Solicest's post about Steam vs. GFWL accounts (written at the time of the Steam launch, but still applies):

    Solicest:
    If you are a Steam Customer, you will only be able to make purchases through the Steam Wallet. Keep in mind this means that Steam customers will not be able to use Microsoft Points to purchase any content from LIVE.

    So if you want to purchase EP with MS points, you will need to wait until the GFWL marketplace for the game comes back online.

    Hi Stalker,

    This is a new issue, so let's open up a new thread for it.  It'll help us track issues better that way.  Can you get a screenshot of what you are seeing? Which server are you playing on, and when did this happen (approx date and time PST) so that we can check the server logs if needed?

    My guess is microsoft and all its affiliates are sooo rich they dont need our money. I mean Bill Gates should always be the richest man in the world every year but his philanthropy gets in the way, giving away like half of his loot and making it possible for others to be #1. AOEO is an awesome game that deserves lots of cash, but then they make it totaly free. Even if we want to give money we are blocked and have no idea how to do it. When I think of it I am perfectly fine without empire points.  So CHEERS, its nice being treated well by the rich. Beer
