I used my nickname on iPhone 5's Game Center before I changed my Apple ID to [appleid] After changing my Apple ID to an account, I then deleted my old Apple ID from my iPhone. Now both my nickname and scores disappeared.

Is there any way to get my nickname and scores back?

So you changed Apple IDs entirely? Or just the email associated with the Apple ID? – bassplayer7 Jan 3 '13 at 15:26

You can log into your old account again directly in the GameCenter app:

  • start GameCenter
  • go to your profile and scroll down
  • tap on your account name (at the bottom) to log out
  • log in with the old account
