As a faction leader I can tell you, yes they are worth it. However, it is like pulling teeth to get members to sign up for it. The benefits as a leader are:1) Communication/Faction Info. An ability to communicate about events and not have to be on 24/7 announcing the event because others don't do it for you ( i assume that some do, but we can't always fill up fact chat with that). Information exchange is key for a faction to succeed imo. You can also organize TWs with the site. Advertise your factions voice chat program of choice.2) A guild roster and tracker of who is active:As people sign up you can start to look for them to be active. Generally a person that will go through the small effort to sign up on a website will actually dedicate some time to being active in your faction.3) Fun and games and a more family/friend making setting.EPW isn't huge as far as servers go, but by thining down the larger portion of the game into 200- players you become more close nit. Get to know each other better. Become more of a family and tend to share with each other more. Personally, I believe a faction is an in game family and should be able to share with each other (eg. I have some members, myself included, that have donated 120-145 gears in case other up and comers need it)4) I mentioned TWs in the first one.If you want to succeed as a TW faction you NEED to be organized. Bottom line. The site will help.Thats just my 2 cents here..
