    I wonder if that number includes people who played on the trial?

    i am led to believe there was and is no Steam trial, so I would say no, those are purchases.

    Wouldn't it be purchases plus those who linked their accounts?

    Does that include the number of people who got refunds on the game?

    I assume that number is negligible for any game, and irrelevant in the overall count.

    So that means there could be even more SotA Steam owners and they just haven't played it yet. Maybe from buying it as a gift for someone. I still have a couple of those in my Steam Library, just never got around to playing them.

    Yep, linked accounts are included. A lot of people linked their accounts when the request for reviews went out.

    Seems the forum thread about it has been deleted. But there was an appeal from port quite some time ago asking people to go and review the game on steam, which involved linking your account to steam as it doesn't let you review a game if you don't own it on steam. Though steam no longer counts the reviews of those who didn't buy the game through steam when calculating the recent review score. You can see next to people's reviews an icon that indicates whether the person owns the game via steam purchase or key activation.
