I like this debate because it does talk to any groups sense of being their faction and counting BGS achievements as belonging to them as a group. To suggest that this is not the case does detract from having your group represented in the game in the first place. Further to this, I believe FDev could go further with the interface between Squadron and faction by introducing more control and gameplay - I so want to play the role of System Authority in my PMF systems ...1. What's the nature of the relationship between a Commander (Player) and a faction; subsequently what's the nature of relationship between a squadron and the faction they're pledged to? Are they just an "external contractor/contractor group" or are they "part of" the faction?
