There are currently four factions in-game. These are The United Kingdom, l'Empire Français (French Empire), Königreich Preußen (Prussia), and Rossiyskaya imperiya (Russian Empire).
Currently all factions in Holdfast are equally balanced with no specific advantages. Britain has a unique unit, the Bagpiper which functions the same as other musicians.

Choosing a Faction EditWhen you join a game, you select a faction from a GUI. Server admins can set whichever team to fight against whichever team, so not all of the matches will be historically accurate. The balance threshold is currently 15 players.
