Link a device missing from settings

★★ Novice

Hello,

 

I'm facing a very strange issue. I want to link a device to the account that I got on my tablet but on settings there is no "Link a device" button. The game is up-to-date and I even tried to uninstall completely and reinstall but nothing changed.

Apart from the missing button in settings there also other things missing:

  • Miissing "Facebook Connect" button in settings
  • Miissing "Chat Settings" button in settings
  • Can't see territory war and hoth commands set by officers
  • Can't see the chat at all

As you can see in screenshot1  there is no chat at all and in screenshot2 there are no "Facebook Connect", "Chat Settings" and "Link a Device" buttons

I'm afraid we don't have an option to change the age on your nephew's account to bypass the restrictions Oops

 

With underage accounts all progress is saved locally on the device if date of birth has been set below 13 years old. Due to children's online protection laws we're unable to collect any data about such accounts therefore progress recovery or transfer is quite impossible.

Hey @billykid81

 

Has the age on your account been set below 13 years old? Wondering It looks like you're using an underage account with online restrictions.

Hi and thanks for the response.
It's actually my nephew's account so this could be the case. I'll have a look and let you know.

It seems that this is the exact issue. How can I link that account to another device now? Is there a way to overcome it?

So to make it clear, if that device breaks the account will be lost? How can that be the case?

I mean there must be a way to save it

If a few years pass and the child turns 13 or above, will it be possible to transfer the account?

@THEWORRIEDBOBCAT There were changes a wee while ago where an account should automatically "age up", unlocking chat and the link settings. I thought it was 14 though.
