Arma 3 Units web service: authenticate users with Steam API instead of Bohemia account
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic


I'd suggest authenticating users with Steam API (link & more info below) instead of Bohemia account.

Why should users be authenticated via Steam instead of Bohemia account?

  • Every Arma 3 owner has Steam account
  • Only few Arma 3 owners from playerbase have Bohemia account
  • So many services require their own personal accounts nowadays which is super annoying and decreases the interest of users drastically – using convenient way to authenticate users would be a major advantage to make the service more popular

Additional Information

You could still keep the Bohemia account integration, but make it optional and the Steam credentials obligatory instead so you could gain the benefits of both 100 % coverage of Steam account of Arma 3 users and extra services of Bohemia account.

Steam API documentation:

You can even require Arma 3 ownership of authenticated account with the API request functionality!
