Cant turn on 2FA or verify email because "logged in through external services"

So i was looking for a good German tank to buy maybe through the marketplace to grind a bit. But it tells me i need to turn on 2FA and verify my email in order to do so. So i go to my settings and it tells me i logged in through an external service so i cant change any of the security settings except for the security questions. I turned those on and still i cant verify my email. I checked my inbox and it seems i never even got a verification email from Gaijin for my account. I made this account through War Thunder so thus through Steam.
Saw a reddit post from a month ago and a few people were having the same issue. Anyone know a fix?

did you bind an email to your account ?
