After joining the Twitch family in 2016, Curse has worked to integrate your favorite Twitch content into our apps and sites. Today we’d like to let you know about the next big evolution:
Starting today, you will be able to merge your Curse account into your Twitch account on Alpha, and in just a few days we’ll be rolling it out to everyone.
Some of you are probably saying “Hey, wait a minute - I already linked my Twitch and Curse accounts!” Merging your accounts is the next step in this process. What it means for you is that you’ll be able to make your Curse and Twitch account one - giving you the ability to log into both Twitch and Curse with just one account. One username to rule them all!
By merging your accounts, you’ll be taking the next step in becoming the Twitch community to be a part of. You’ll get to keep using Twitch emotes within the app, use Twitch chat within a server, log into all Curse websites and apps with your Twitch account, and if you’re an addon user, you’ll be getting access to premium Curse addon features - free forever! We urge you to merge accounts as soon as possible, as we will eventually retire the use of Curse accounts and the username you want may not be available.
When you do the merge, the general rule of thumb is that your Twitch username will trump your Curse username. For example: if your Twitch username is “BeardedGamer”, and your Curse username is “BeardedGamer13579”, your username moving forward will be “BeardedGamer”. However, you may choose to keep your Curse username as the primary username if the name is still available on Twitch. If you do choose to take this route, it is important to note that the process will require you to create a new Twitch account, or first rename your existing Twitch account. Please read additional policy information here and learn how that might impact your Twitch experience.

We’re extremely happy to share this with you as an important next step in becoming more integrated with Twitch. We’ll continue to keep you updated as more awesome things come along!
