Description

XFaction is a World of Warcraft add-on that enables guilds of a confederate to share a common guild chat, including guilds of different factions. In patch 9.2.5, Blizzard enabled cross-faction raiding and instance runs. Many Eternal Kingdom (EK) guild members switched from Alliance to Horde but without GreenWall, members could no longer communicate and the sense of community began to breakdown. Many aspects of feeling like being in a guild together were no longer working; such as seeing when guild mates logged in/out, seeing that a guild mate got an achievement, seeing who is currently online, etc.

 

XFaction uses a variety of communication channels to share player information and chat communication to enable players to see each other, as if in the same guild. The core principle is to try to duplicate as much Blizzard guild functionality across the confederate so members do not feel like they are in separate guilds, but within the same (big) guild. Essentially we're creating an illusion (I <3 Nightborne).
