Factions are united groups of players fighting for the same cause. A faction can consist of up to 18 players, which includes 1 Founder and up to 6 officers.


Alignments

When creating a faction, you can choose to join the Legion army or the Exile resistance. There is an ongoing war between the two alignments.

The Legion are those loyal to Baelius and trust in their benevolent leader to rule Delta V. Before the War, Baelius' brutal methods of maintaining order caused a split amongst his labor-force. Those that dissented joined the Uprising, a rebellious group of brigands and profiteers who sought to form a coup against Baelius. Those who believed the resistance was the cause of Baelius' ruthless punishment formed The Legion. These loyalists were essentially fighting a two-front battle: They had to put down the Uprising where they could with one hand and steel themselves against the brutality of Baelius' totalitarian reprisal with the other.

Some say The Legion's staunch devotion is folly. Others believe The Legion are the hardened defenders of a renewed future of prosperity and peace on Delta V.

For The Legion, the return to Delta V from exile was the beginning of a new era. A new war has begun for them, one which they must not lose if they wish to see order restored to a broken and divided Delta V. The Legion will stand against the chaos-mongers and fight for a final victory on a world they wish to call home once again.

Will you fight for the future of Delta V? Will you fight for Baelius' forgotten army?

The term "Exile" describes anyone banished during the War when Baelius' "Efficiency Solution" went into effect. Yet, only those who fought for the Uprising wear this badge with pride.

Throughout its history, the human race has proven time and again that it will not suffer an oppressive ruler. Baelius was no exception. The Uprising formed as a direct result of his tightening grip and the cries of "This will not stand!" shook Baelius' citadel walls and echoed through the mines. Uprising fought tooth and nail against the hardened Legion forces and their endless ranks of automated reinforcements. With Oz, an ex-Shock Trooper as their leader, the Uprising scratched inch by inch to the brink of victory.

Betrayal ended the siege of Baelius' grand Citadel and stole the lives of those closest to Oz. The final nail in the coffin came when the forces colliding in battle were banished to a realm between worlds. One of chaos and without time.

But now the Uprising has returned, proudly waving the Exile banner! For them, the War never ended and new leaders have risen to the challenge of freeing Delta V's people! The challenge now lies in unifying the Exile forces against a common foe.

So, Exile, are you prepared to fight for your freedom?

You can create your own faction by clicking the faction button at the Heads Up Display (orange Yin and Yang symbol.) Creating a faction costs 15000 Credits or 300 Varium. During this process, you need to choose which alignment your faction is joining, the flag design as well as a unique name for it. Each faction comes with Faction Headquarters that vary in appearance depending on your faction's alignment.

In order to join a faction, you must receive an invite from the faction leader or an officer. Faction recruitment can be done in-game or on the forums. If you wish to advertise your faction or if you are looking to join one, you may use the EpicDuel Faction Recruitment Section or by posting your faction in the EpicDuel Faction List

The Faction War is an ongoing battle against the Factions of Legion and the Factions of Exile. At the end of every day, members of the factions that have the most daily Faction Influence for both alignments are awarded the World Domination Achievement. The influence count resets for all factions at the end of the server day. At the end of each day, the alignment that is currently winning the war, is awarded an alignment win. Alignment wins can be seen on the faction page. Alignment wins and World Domination achievements are only awarded during wartime.
