How do I sign up for War of the Factions?

Enlist in the War of the Factions by signing up for the Beta. All multiplayer gameplay from all players who participate in the Beta will impact the global leaderboard. The Faction who conquers the most territory at the end of Beta reigns supreme.

Pledge your sword to the Knights of the Iron Legion, the Warborn Viking clans, or the Samurai of the Dawn Empire From the game’s main menu.

What if I choose one Faction, but play with another Factions warrior?
Once you choose a side, all of your Beta victories will count toward your Faction’s global world score, even if you decide to play individual matches as other Faction warriors

For example, if you pledge yourself to the Vikings, you will always fight for the Vikings in the War of the Factions, even if you decide to play matches as a warrior from either the Samurai or Knights.

Bottom line, you can fight as any warrior, from any Faction, at any time, after pledging.

How can I earn points for my Faction?
By playing multiplayer matches, you will earn War Assets.  At the end of every multiplayer match, you will be awarded a certain number of War Assets depending on your performance. Those War Assets can then be distributed in 3 ways:
1. All War Assets are spent on one single contested Territory 
2. War Assets are spent equally on all contested Territories 
3. If you do not manually invest War Assets, they will be automatically allocated for you

All War Assets from multiplayer matches, even against AI, contribute to the War of the Factions event.

How can I check my Factions progress in-game?
You can see your Faction progress via The World Map. The World Map is the hub of the Faction War, which is the in-game metagame that powers the War of the Factions event. Accessible from the game’s main menu, the World Map is divided into 3 different Faction controlled territories. The Faction controlling the most Territories at the end of Beta wins.
