Granted, I'm a math nerd, but am I the only one who thinks "fractions" before "factions" with the fancy long letters? Armond 23:50, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

Until 07'...I always thought it was Fractions as well. :D --Jack Rex 18:32, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

April 18th Update[edit]

What happens when u add collector edition to an account that already unlocked normal edition?--King Of Kamelott 19:08, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
I'm wondering the same, anyone knows? @_@ Yumiya 21:11, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
You get all the benefits of the CE PLUS the normal version--User Raph Sig2.jpgRaph Talky 22:32, 9 January 2008 (UTC)
When you add a collector's edition to a normal activation, all you really get are the extra dances. There's not much else to be gained from the collector's edition.Miss Innocent 05:09, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Owning a town?[edit]

I've been looking around, the booklet says nothing about owning a town or how to, is there a wiki page around here how specifically one does own a town?...all I get from other people is..."...get a lot of factions...", but how is that process of owning a specifically town.--ShadowFog 21:59, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

I think that's done automatically. Once your alliance reaches a certain amount of faction points, you will automatically be assigned a town. Not sure though. --MageMontu 22:02, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that's basically it. When the K/L divide is updated, if you/your alliance owns enough faction to take control of a town (faction to own is listed in the details of the town/outpost) you take control.
That's about right; I'll elaborate more. The alliances with the most faction are awarded control of a town based on how much they have, relative to the other alliances. For example, the Kurzick alliance with the most faction gets to control House zu Heltzer, which gives them access to the elite mission and some special merchants. If there's more Kurzick towns, the next alliance gets one and has access to those merchants, and then the third alliance gets a town, until there's no more towns to give away. Exactly how much Faction you need to take over a town is based on how much faction the other alliances have. You can look at the towns that have the least faction (usually the ones closest to enemy territory) to see how much you need. Since the towns are awarded hourly, you may gain (and then lose) a town very quickly. Miss Innocent 05:07, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Does it come with a Booklet?[edit]

I bought Factions at Target yesterday, and it was sealed and the wrapping wasn't cut or anything...But, when I opened it up, I was surprised to see no Booklet, which is kind of annoying since I like to read through them. It also only had one game disc, which is no big deal since I just add the access key. --Jack Rex 18:35, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

I bought my Factions game in DVD format(1 DVD) so cant help you on that part but it must come with a booklet. I think you can download a PDF format of it...somewhere, maybe in there website, I havent checked that out.--ShadowFog 12:39, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
you can, its on the official website,under downloads or something. As for why you dont have one, i have no idea o_O--User Raph Sig.pngRaph Talky 12:43, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
The Factions downloadable manual can be found here. You could try returning to Target with the game and see if they can give you another copy or even just the manual, having said that have you checked on the game disc if the manual is on there since some games only come with a digital version of the manual; not sure if Factions is one of them since I got the Collector's edition and it came with a printed manual. --Kakarot Talk 12:56, 23 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for all the help, I doubt they'd take it back since I opened it...and it was the last copy. xD But I'll just download the manual. --24.7.141.45 17:26, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Huh[edit]

I love the way on the Factions Game Box the Kurzick own Fort Aspenwood(Luxon) in the picture describing the alliances. Makes me laughe. Yay Killing Charr talk 21:40, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Bait & switch theme[edit]

Has anyone (like a reviewer) ever noted that this campaign's theme is kind of bait & switch? It's heavily advertised as having an East Asian-inspired theme but that only holds up through Kaineng City. Once you get out into the actual Faction warzones, the game takes on much different themes -- the Kurzicks are essentially Gothic, and the Luxons are apparently based on Greek seafaring. The two Factions that are the namesake of this campaign aren't at all Asian. Just an observation, anyway. Did anyone else find this to be curious? 76.253.0.17 09:32, 21 August 2011 (UTC)
