QotD: If Factions Were Countries
« on: March 24, 2015, 03:34:03 PM »
I remember a thread from back when I was starting out where people were talking about what faction is equal to which country. So in the true spirit of video games, let's recycle the idea until it's not fun anymore!

I'll start. Obviously the Overseers are America. Lots of guns, bringing Order to the world one Orion death at a time  ;)

As far as you want. Although if it's a very obscure country you might give some background :D

Flame Dawn would be Germany back in the world war times.

I think America is more like Flame of Dawn. rushing in before they know everything. yeah. that seems about right.

Haha this thread is going to offend people. Warpath is Australia, and Genesis is North Korea.
Where there's a will, there's a way.

Genesis feels more like South Korea to me since they're the technologically advanced race who are better at building machines than anyone else.

I would say that the superiority complex of the Overseers makes them like the British. Doubly so since they aren't actually any better than the rest despite what they claim.

Flame Dawn is the pre-Christian Roman Empire.

Genesis Industries is Japan's wet dream, complete with a pretty-boy CEO (whos now dead, ahahaha suck it Orion #IMakeThisGameOrion #SolIsAGenius)

Veroria is grimdark.

Exiles are crazdark.

Overseers of Solace are Big Brother.

DoD is China (Duh).

Sleepers are America. (Because they're braindead and they dont have any real leaders, ahahaha).

I feel like I forgot a faction, if I did its because they're beneath my notice.

DOD - China (I mean, come on...)
Exiles - North Korea (Exile!)
Genesis Industries - South Korea (Embraces technology more than any other country)
Sleepers - America (We're all asleep over here)
Flame Dawn - Germany (Blitzkrieg!)
Verore - India (Find a way into everything)
Warpath - Congo (Tribal Culture)
Angels - Italy (Think they're above everyone else)
Factionless - USSR (Duh)

Great question by the way. This one was fun!
