Link to Steam Account? - 10/7/2019 6:38:17 PM

I just noticed an option to link my Matrix account to my Steam account. I have quite a few Matrix games a few of which I purchased on Steam and a few more that I got a steam code a while after purchasing them from Matrix.

I like the fact that Steam auto updates everything.

But I can do that just by getting a steam code for Matrix games with one available and entering it into steam.

So...

Question. Is there any advantage/plus to linking a Matrix Account to a Steam Account?

Matrix Games putrchased here come with a bonus Steam key sometimes.

Steam purchases of Matrix Games are just purchases of Matrix Games with only a Steam Key.

You don't get a Matrix Games serial if it is not bought here originally.

There is no real connection here with Steam. And a Steam purchase will only function on Steam.

Some games from Steam, maybe even great majority of them, play fine without Steam client software (useful when mods are involved). But at least Aggressors: Ancient Rome isn't one and my attempts to run the game without Steam proved failure.

At the moment linking doesn't add that much but its a stepping stone towards being able to pull your steam library to Matrix and vice versa without steam keys. Its also useful for steam players who want to use system on our site such as PBEM, tournaments etc.
