Faction

(Redirected from Create A Faction)

A Faction is a group of players that play Torn together under the same name and banner, with a shared vision of the game. Factions are led by a Leader and an optional Co-leader; they allow for the sharing of resources (via the Armory) in addition to collective crime and warring efforts (via Organized Crime and Warfare).


Starting A Faction

Factions are one of the most popular activities in Torn. Starting a new faction costs $1,000 x number of factions currently in the game, although a faction can be purchased for less in the faction buying and selling thread in the forums. A brand new faction will have 5,000 respect and will be based in a shed, giving a maximum member space of 5 members. This can further be upgraded in the Upgrades Panel

A faction's success may be measured by its total current respect and the upgrades that it has. To see the best factions in the game, go to the Hall of Fame in the newspapers.

Going Inactive (Faction Leader)

It should be noted that if the faction's leader should ever go inactive for more than 30 days, leadership will be automatically transferred to the Co-Leader. If there isn't one, it will instead be transferred to the longest-serving member online in the last 24 hours.

Application Process

  • Players can now have up to 10 pending Applications to factions at the same time. This means they're free to apply to several factions at the same time, greatly increasing the chances they'll get into one quickly. This solves the laborious process of applying to one, waiting for a response, and then applying to another.
  • Faction leaders will no longer receive news or event spam with every received application. Instead, we've implemented a separate notification system which alerts those with permissions to pending applications.
  • Players can edit their applications at any point after they have been sent out, or withdraw them, via the relevant Faction profile.
  • Once an application is accepted, all other related applications will be removed. So as a Faction leader, all of the applications you see will be from players who are available to join now.
  • If an application is declined, the player will not be able to reapply again for 7 days. These 7 day reapply restrictions can be overridden by the Faction by toggling "Allow applications" off and on again.
  • Applications expire after 72 hours if they have not been accepted or declined.

Faction Warfare

These are features/play styles used by factions in order to gain respect, climb the Hall of Fame and get recognized by the Torn community.

Respect

Respect is what most factions will fight and die for. It can be used to show the Torn community how good your faction is, it can be used as bragging rights or it can be used for upgrading faction specials. Respect is gained and lost in many ways.

Gaining Respect

  • Attacking and chaining against other players. Consecutive attacks in a short time period is known as chaining and is the most efficient way of gaining respect.
  • You can also accumulate respect, on a daily basis, by owning Territory blocks.
  • Most factions will run Organized Crimes for the purpose of gaining respect, as well as some money in the process. They range in difficulty and number of members required.
  • The Television Station company special 'Propaganda' allows an employee to spend job points on gaining respect for the faction they are in. The faction news log will also have a record of this.

Losing Respect

  • When a faction is hit by a Dirty Bomb, it will lose a large amount of respect, and suffer from several other effects.
  • When a member of a faction is attacked, the faction will lose 25% of the respect that the attacking player gained

Chaining

Chaining is a warring tool designed to supplement warring between two factions. Successive hits made on players outside of your faction will build a "chain", gradually earning more respect as the chain builds - and occasionally reaching "bonus" hits for large additional respect gains.

  • Chaining must be unlocked by spending respect. Once a faction has completed a chain of set length, it may unlock the next length chain. These purchases are non-refundable.
  • The first 10 hits in a chain must be made within 5 minutes. Beyond this, each successive hit must be made within 5 minutes or the chain will enter its cooldown state.
  • As the chain progresses, the respect earned will gradually increase - scaled logarithmically. At 13 (currently 11) possible points in a chain, designated "bonus hits", a hit will produce a large flat respect bonus.
  • Once a chain breaks, it will enter its cooldown state, which lasts 10 seconds for every hit made in the chain (e.g. 100 seconds for a 10-hit chain).

Chaining was completely redesigned in 2017 and unveiled in November as the first update in a much larger Warring 2.0 upgrade. Full details on the subject can be found on the Chain page.

Faction Raiding

Raiding is a purely destructive form of warring that was released on 08/01/19. Any faction may begin an indefinite raid against another faction, during which respect may only be taken from the opposition, rather than earned. Once 24 hours has elapsed, the faction with the highest score (most respect taken) gains the option to "Cease" the raid. If no progress is made to the raid for more than 72 hours, the losing faction can cease the raid.

  • A faction may only begin a raid with one faction at time. If your faction is involved in a raid, it will not be able to start another until the current raid is ceased. Your faction may be raided by multiple factions at the same time, however.
  • If your faction starts a raid, it will force any current chain into its cooldown state, so chains should be finished before or started after your faction declares a raid.
  • Attacks made by either side during a raid will cause 100% respect loss (compared with the 25% loss caused by regular attacks).
  • Respect that you take from the opposing faction will be added to your faction's raid score. Once 24 hours have passed since the beginning of the raid, the faction with the highest score may choose to cease the raid.
  • The faction with the lowest score may choose to surrender at any time, however all this does is notify the opposing faction that you wish for the raid to be over. They may choose to accept your surrender and cease, or ignore it and continue.
  • Factions must have 10 members to be able to declare a raid.
  • Traded peace treaties will cease & block raids for the agreed duration.
  • As with territory wars, full stats and graphs are available in a raid report once a raid is complete.

Faction Destruction

When a faction hits zero respect, they will be permanently destroyed. The faction will not be fully deleted, but it will enter an irrecoverable death state - this means the faction cannot be accessed, but its profile - showing its name, image, and previous leader - will be retained forever.

Upon destruction, all members of the faction will be removed and any inventory which isn't loaned out will be moved to the leader including money and points.

Territories

Ranked Warring

Note: Coming soon!

Outsider vs. Insider Hits

The criteria for an outside hit is shown below:

a1fc5c840cda01ef6797a7738e3636c4.png

After an excessive number of outside hits, a player can qualify for an Early Discharge. [1]

Organized Crime Panel

Commonly abbreviated as "OC," Organized Crimes bring in respect and money for your faction. The higher grade OC's provide more money and respect but have higher Crime Experience requirements of the members involved.

When someone with OC permission sets up an OC, several members of the faction can be selected to take part, members who will then receive an event to let them know that they have been selected. Once it has been planned, a timer will begin to count down until the OC can be initiated. Once the timer is up, it will be marked as 'ready', and it can be initiated so long as all members in the OC have the 'Okay' status (i.e. not traveling, in jail, or in the hospital). The selected members themselves do not have to do anything for the OC, only to have the 'Okay' status at the time of initiation.

If you are scheduled for an OC that is nearly ready and you attempt a flight that will cause you to return 'late' for the OC, you will see a message prominently displayed, warning you of the pending OC. You may choose to ignore the warning and fly anyway as you are not prevented from flying.

OC's can be planned and initiated by any member with the "Organized Crimes" permission, which can be given by Leaders.

OC's can be easily planned again with the same members immediately after completion. Simply click the "Plan again" button.

When a faction is hit by a Dirty Bomb, all planned OC's are canceled.

On the faction crimes page, players not currently assigned to an OC will be shown in descending order according to their crime experience before any bonuses are applied. [1]

The honor bar 'Mastermind' is awarded upon participating in 100 OCs.

Upgrades Panel

The upgrades panel is the nuts and bolts of faction management. It is split into two sections, the core branch and the special upgrades branch.

  • An upgrade from a core branch cannot be undone, so be careful when selecting these. This includes member capacity, armory upgrades, dirty bomb lab, territory upgrades, and chaining upgrades.
  • The special upgrades branch is where you can select your specials, you can choose up to 6 trees from a list of 8 trees. These can be unset as you see fit for the current situation, although it does take 72 hours to unset them!

Special Branches

Special branches are bonuses that all of your faction members receive. You can assign your respect to these specials. Be wary though, as unsetting them takes 72 hours, so you can't just change up your specials constantly. Additionally, the upgrade cost is dependent on which slot the branch presides in, with the first slot being the base costs listed below, and each subsequent slot being double the cost of the previous one (An upgrade costing 1000 respect in the first slot will cost 2000 respect in the second, 4000 in the third, etc.)

If you are interested in the old upgrades system, you can view those on this page.

Challenges

For more information on faction challenges, please view the Faction Challenges page.

Controls Panel

This is where modifications of faction profile, newsletter sending, editing of user permissions and the creation dirty bombs takes place.

Give To User

Allows the faction leader, co-leader or anyone who has been given 'Money Giving' & 'Points Giving' permission to see the money and points balance of all members of the faction in the "Give to user" panel, and to give money or points to members. These balances increase when members donate money/points and decrease if they are given money/points. The 'payday' feature will not affect money balances. The balances can be adjusted to any value by the leader or co-leader; this only changes the member's displayed balance and has no other effect. Members can see their own personal balance on the armory page.

Faction Communication

Faction Forums: The faction forums are a place for you to talk to your members, post ideas, services from the faction and offers. It is also the main place for any up-to-date news from the faction and a well-run forum is vital for a faction to succeed. All faction members can make threads and post in them, but only certain faction staff can delete threads that aren't theirs or make stickies.


Faction chatbox: This is for faction members to talk in real-time, it is useful during chainings or asking for help with regards to the faction.


Newsletter: Some Faction staff can send newsletters out, usually, these letters have important information regarding the faction and it is usually best to pay attention to these.

Pay Day

Allows members with the money giving permission to send money to multiple faction members at the same time.

Applications

Here, you can view, accept or decline the applications of users who have applied to your faction. Users that have withdrawn their application from the management tab will show the 'Withdrawn Status'.


Members

This is where you find a full list of all members in your faction and change their positions accordingly.

Positions

Only the leader or co-leader can create positions and edit permissions for each position.

New members will receive a 'Recruit' position by default and will have limited access to the faction. After 72 hours, members receive the faction's default position which can be renamed by Leaders and Co-Leaders.

Deletion

The Leader and only the leader of a faction may choose to delete their faction. This cannot be done however, if the faction has over 100,000 respect. [2]

Historical Notes

  • Inactive Faction Leader Didn't Promote Correctly - Changed daily inactive faction leader replacement to be the co-leader or longest serving member online in the last 24 hours
  • Previously, the firework stand company had a special that would allow a user to spend job points to reduce the respect of an enemy faction. This special was removed when company specials were given a major overhaul in May, 2015.
  • Previously, a player needed to be a member of a faction for four days before receiving cash or points via the 'Give to Player' function.
  • If you lose or abandon a territory, you will not be able to attempt to take that territory again for 7 days. - As of December 2019, this rule has been removed.

  • Faction Destruction
    • When a faction hits zero respect, they will be permanently destroyed. The faction will not be fully deleted, but it will enter an irrecoverable death state - this means the faction cannot be accessed, but its name and profile will be retained forever.
    • Upon destruction, all members of the faction will be removed and any inventory which isn't loaned out will be moved to the leader including money and points.
    • There is no way to recover once a faction reaches 0 respect.
    • Loaned items after destruction will belong to those who were loaning them.
    • All items, money and points in the faction will go to the current leader.
    • When a faction is destroyed, their profile will remain, showing its name, image and previous leaders.
  • Raiding:
    • During a raid, attacks will cause 100% damage rather than 25%, but produce no respect, only destruction.
    • There is no way to end a raid without the faction in the lead ceasing it or the other faction's destruction.
    • The faction with the lowest raid score can surrender. This will not end the raid unless the other faction accepts and ceases it.
    • After ceasing a raid, the two factions cannot raid each other again for 90 days.
    • Full stats and graphs are available after completing a raid within the raid report, like in territory warring.

    • Stat difference: The similarity in stats between you and the target (fair fights) can yield a bonus of up to x3.
    • Retaliation: If you attack someone who's just defeated one of your faction members, a bonus of x1.5 is applied.
    • Overseas: Attacking a target while you're overseas will provide a bonus of x1.25.
    • Group attack: A depreciating bonus of x1.25 will be applied for each additional friendly attacker.
    • War attacks: Any war-related attack (such as removing a target during a territorial war) will yield a x2 bonus.
