Anyone else got it? Getting ready to install right now. I just noticed Isi got Chapter 1, but has anyone else gotten Factions yet? I don't want to be alone. :lol:

When enough people get it, I'm for the clan going Luxon. Kurzicks are very religious and civilized, but Luxons are almost nomadic.

Someone explain the "factions" thing to me. Can guld members be part of different factions or do we all have to be the same?

My understanding is it's like Horde and Alliance in WoW, or NC and Dome in NC. Also I think it said something about "alliances," where guilds of one faction form for Alliance vs. Alliance battles (like a big GvG.) When more people get Factions we should put this to vote. :)

Going to get factions when I can, which isn't atm unfortunately... have other priorities, its there fault for not coming out with it sooner as promised (Nov last year :shake: )

I am going to get it tho, and will def have to look into the different factions this week.
Any idea if we get to switch at anypoint? or is it set in stone once we decide?

Do you need invited to the guild Kahn? Whats your chars name?

you can switch at any time between the two but once you commit to one you basically lose "respect" from the other side. The factions thing is part of the larger alliance system thats still broken at this point, but basically factions and alliances are about PVE. You do pvp 12v12 battles or quests to gain kursick or luxon faction to add to your guild pool of faction. Your guild is basically like a bigger unit of yourself in the sense that in an alliance all the faction accumulated by guilds add up to control territory. Controlling an area of the map gives you cheaper prices at the traders and what not like keys for chests. IE: regular price of kursick key = 600 gp Special price = 480gp

Things of that nature. Controlling more territory as a side gives you access to extreme pve zones that are tailored made to have you fail. But the drops in those zones are insane. Think of them like underworld and fissure but harder. The amount of faction you have pooled is specific to your guild and it can boost an alliance guild's pool as well. But if you leave an alliance ...you take your faction away. So this makes it so that you can leave an alliance and join another one if you choose to do so.

Thats the idea behind the factions and alliance system.

1) Yes, you can switch.

2) Kahn The Humble. The guild is up in the air at the moment. My Tribes/BF2 clan Miami Vanguard is very, very active in Guild Wars. Most of them already have Factions, and are well undeway forming an alliance for Faction PvP (not quite sure which side they are.) Ever since Tribes died, Guild Wars has been their most active game. On the other hand, it doesn't seem like SSX is very active at all, since I added everyone from the website's member list to my friend's list, and have yet to see anyone on. :(

I don't want it to seem like I'm blowing you off just because your not so active. I've been with MV for a year and a half, and have been fairly active in the community. They are in fact quite similar to SSX, the only major difference being MV is very involved in PvP and many members are fairly competitive.

However, this does not mean we cannot PvE together (which seems to be the main focus of SSX in GW). So feel free to add Kahn The Humble to your friends list, and give me a whisper if you need a Mo/W. ;)
