    If it freezes in "Contacting Steam" that means that it's talking externally from the AOEO servers to Steam, so it the traffic could (unfortunately) have been lost in the nether of the Internet.
     That being said; have you attempted an Integrity Check of your game installation in Steam?

    You can use Steam to verify the files, just right click on the game from your Library, then select Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of game cache.

    Hi Cheshire,

    Are you able to make other purchases on Steam? Which region are you located in? Do you get any error messages when trying to purchase?

    I just tried again to do it and it comes up with the windows live way to purchase points now not the steam way, i want to use my steam credit to do it as that the only reason i put credit on the account as it said to this website?

    Re: Empire points purchase

    If you've installed via Steam, it should send you to the Steam store, if you've installed via Games for Windows, it should send you to the GFWL Marketplace. Are you saying this isn't happening?

    Just tried it again and now it comes up with connecting to steam but just hangs there doing nothing, getting really confused as to why its so hard to do? i click on the game in the steam libary and go to DLC for the game and in steam it says there no download content????

    Can you please verify whether the Steam overlay is enabled? If in game, you should be able to press Shift+Tab to view it.  You can also check in the Steam client (Steam menu, Settings, In-game, Enable Steam Community in-game).

    Re: Empire points purchase

    I was experiencing the same problem and I can verify that this is the solution that works for me. Thanks. :-) 

    Note: it would be nice if there could be some kind of in-game note, explaining this. Personally I did not want to have the community overlay enabled in Steam games and my guess is that others feel the same. A simple notice would help solve the problem of not being able to add empire points.

    I'm working with the dev team to get this addressed, but they've got a lot on their plate right now, so I can't really say if or when it will be done.
