ArcheAge Will Allow Players to Make Their Own Factions
Don't like the established NPC factions in MMOs? You will have a new option in ArcheAge. XLGames revealed that they will allow players to create their own factions.
That means: Everyone having territory on the northern continent can now proclaim a nation and you are independent from the other 2 npc factions(if you take the news literally.).
It seems that you are able to do diplomacy with NPC factions and other player factions, meaning you can be peaceful towards each other OR enemies(so now half-assed thing I hope). Within that paragraph, they mentioned guards and NPC merchants. I'm not sure whether thats only for npc factions or if they're semi-announcing new stuff for the territories.
This also means that you can play together no matter what race. You can apply for a nation and if the nations accepts the application you're in(I'm sure its not that simple but lets see). You cannot have dual citizinship, you will be considered an outlaw if you do that.
If you have estate in an area of a nation, your taxes go directly to that nation. They can be adjusted by the respective nation.
