Faction Play Improvements

  • Pledging Loyalty to a Faction:
A player who has pledged loyalty to a Faction will now have that Faction's emblem displayed on their home screen, Forum profile and all screens which display profile alignment such as main menu, scoreboard, leaderboard etc. The emblem will not change if the player is participating in Faction Play for another Faction other than the one they are loyal to, even if their Faction is not involved in the current conflict.

  • New Faction Play Leaderboards:
The Faction Play Leaderboard has been temporarily reactivated to show basic stats in a global manner.  Update leaderboards that track based on individual Factions/Role are coming in a future update.
