We do this for a few different reasons:The most important reason is that it allows us to provide a tighter integration between the web site and the game servers.It keeps people from pretending to be someone else.It prevents spammers and spam bots.It ensures that our community remains focused on Minecraft (you have to own a copy to join).Pirating sucks, people worked hard on Minecraft, we don't harbor thieves here.The easiest way to validate your Minecraft account is using the automated process with your Minecraft username and password. We only verify your account with Minecraft servers once (when you first join Empire Minecraft). We NEVER store original passwords on our servers, it is impossible for us to retrieve your actual Minecraft password.If you do not feel safe using this automated method, an additional method using an in-game verification code will be provided to you during registration.Can I change my username?No, you cannot change your username on the website or the game server.Can I reset my residence in Town (start over)?Yes you can reset your residence, click here for more info.
