Faction, Syndicate, Guild and Clan Help
Posted by Tatum S. on 18 December 2015 01:46 PM
You are able to join forces with other players to create a Faction, Syndicate, Clan or Guild, depending on the game you decide to play. Work together as a team to earn as many Gamer Points as possible, and fight your way to the top of the Leaderboards.
You can check out the list of existing factions or create your own by going to your Profile and selecting the appropriate button. They can have a membership of up to 25 players, including one Leader and up to three Officers.
Joining a Faction
Joining a pre-existing Faction is a great way to make friends and allies and learn the ropes of the game. There are always lots of Factions who are looking for new members. If you want to join a high-ranking team you may have to petition their existing members to accept you, as many are extremely competitive and selective about who they admit.
Creating a Faction
When you hit level 50 you gain the ability to start your own Faction. Creating a new faction will cost you 1,000,000,000 coins, but you will have full control over customization and membership of your team. Something to remember, Factions that no longer have any members at all are considered disbanded and are permanently removed from the game.
Faction Names and Tags
Pick a name that defines what your Faction is all about and a Tag that will help others identify your character as a member. Tags consist of 2-4 characters, often an initialism, which represent your Faction and appear before your name in certain areas of the game.
Unlike character names, Faction names and tags do not have to be unique so be aware that other groups may turn up with the same or similar identifiers.
As with game names, please try to keep your Faction name, tag, and combination thereof free of naughty language, snarkiness about other players, or other offensive content. Kano/Apps game administrators reserve the right to remove content deemed inappropriate and replace it with references to "My Little Pony".
Public and Internal Messages
Leaders and officers can choose to include a Public Message with their Faction. This can be a short description of your Faction, a mandate, or any other text they want players to see when viewing their page.
By contrast, an Internal Message is a line of text on the Faction’s profile that only can only be seen by members, and can include event planning or team alerts.
Admin reserves the right to change inappropriate Faction messages to statements about how magical friendship is.
Select a Flag to represent your Faction. Flags can be changed at any time by a Leader or Officer.
Setting your Faction’s recruiting status to Yes will allow potential recruits to send you their requests to join. You can check your join requests from your Faction’s profile page.
Enabling Member privacy will limit who is able to view you Faction’s membership list. Keep in mind that members of Alliance or Enemy Factions will still see your member list regardless of this setting. If you enable this setting you will also not be able to see the member list of other Factions. The Member Privacy setting can only be changed once every 7 days! Make sure it's something you really want to do before changing it.
There are 3 types of membership roles in an Faction.
The Leader is the primary administrator of the faction, and can customize the name, tag, flag and other characteristics of the Faction at any time. They can also invite, admit, and remove members and promote regular members to Officer roles.
The person who creates a Faction is the Leader by default, but they can choose to pass this role onto an Officer if they choose. There can only be one Leader at a time.
An Officer has all the same powers and privileges of the Leader, except that an Officer cannot remove the Leader from the Faction or transfer that role to anyone else. There can be up to three officers in an Faction.
Regular Members are just that. They don’t have the ability to edit the faction details or the membership roster.
Factions that no longer have any members at all are considered disbanded and are permanently removed from the game.
Allies and Enemies
Faction Leaders and Officers can request a formal Ally or Enemy relationship with another team from their Faction profile page.
Becoming Allies or Enemies with other Factions allows you to see their membership lists under the Connections tab and track their activity from the Feed on your Faction page.
As with individual players, Leaderboard rankings for Factions are determined by Gamer Points. Each Season, Factions with members who gain the most GP the fastest compete for the top spot. Placing higher on the Leaderboard can earn your Faction gamer awards which are displayed on your team’s profile page.
