Faction credits are a currency issued by your faction for completing objectives. Faction credits have no value, but instead represent how much you contributed to completing the faction's goals, and thus how much you are entitled to of the faction's reward.
At 00:00 every day, your faction will begin reclaiming all of your factional credits, and in return, give you a proportional amount of universal credits. The conversion of faction credits to universal credits depends on the amount of faction credits issued by the faction and by how much money your faction made since the last payout.
If you wish to increase the amount of money you get each payout, either collect more faction credits or increase your faction's bottom line. Note, that if you collect 100,000 more faction credits than everyone else, your payout will be proportionally larger, but if everyone in your faction collects 100,000 more, nobody's payout will significantly increase.
The Faction Leader, or the people he chooses to grant this power, can decide how much of the daily profit that he wants the faction to take part of. 100% profit payout means all the profit will go to the faction members. A lower number means that part of the profit is being used to fill the coffers of the faction. A number greater than 100% means that the faction is adding money out of its own pocket to pay its members. At the settings window you can find how much the Payout credit factor is.
There are several ways to gain FC, including:
- Being rewarded with FC via Administrative actions as a reward from your faction's High Command or as compensation by the order of the Dominion Court.
- Completing personal, group and mission Objectives.
There are only two ways to lose FC:
- You are fined a part of your FC by your faction High Command as discipline via Administrative actions.
- The Payout comes and your FC is converted to UC.
