What is it?

Crucible Radio Faction Wars is a CR Discord Event that takes the three Host factions and puts them in a war with one another. The factions will compete in 4 different activities to see who is Legend.

How do I participate?

All you have to do is pick who’s faction you want to join! Then just message one of the hosts to ask to join!

Okay, I’m in a Faction. Now what?

Now all you need to do is grab a fireteam and pick an activity! There are 3 activities that will go throughout the war. Highest Prestige Nightfall Score, Fastest Eater Of Worlds Raid, Fastest Prestige Leviathan Raid. On that Friday there will be a Tournament. It will start on Friday for PS4 and XBOX. Saturday we will will be the PC tournament. Details for all events below.

I have a high score/fast time! Now what?

There will be a #WarTent channel in the CR Discord. Please go there and report your score/time. Be sure to @ one of the Faction War Delegates. We will need the following info.

  • Faction
  • Activity
  • Score/Time
  • PSN/GT/b.Net

Here is an example of what a report would look like:

  • @tally Hey! I finished the Prestige Leviathan with a time of 49:08! I’m in Birds Monarchy and my name is Fred#12451 on
Alright! I did all the activities, now what?

Well, we offer completion points! Your faction gets 1 point for every time you finish an activity in the name of your Faction! Build up those points by running the nightfall! Alternatively, are you sure you have the fastest raid time? Better be sure! Don’t let your faction lose that first place rank just because you think you’ve done the best time! Keep going!

Also, be sure to sign up for the tournament by Friday at 3:00 PM PST. This will allow us to schedule everything and be sure to get everyone in!


Frequently asked questions

What if i’m playing with my buddy in another faction?

All factions will get a completion point added, but only one faction gets to record the high score.

What if I want to change factions?

You may change factions, but not during a Faction War

Can I be on two PvP teams?

You can not be on multiple teams for the tournament. You may play on multiple systems, but not multiple teams on the same system.

Is cheating allowed?


How will PVP matches be verified?

Please take a screenshot of all PVP matches played in the tournament. These will be needed in case of a dispute and allow us to verify who one.

My team member doesn’t have all the DLCs, and can’t play on a map?

If this issue arises, please contact an Event Planner. They will supply you with a substitute map.



All events will have the same scoring system for simplicity!

  • 1st place – 100 Points
  • 2nd place – 50 Points
  • 3rd place – 25 Points
  • 1 point for each activity completed – 100 max per faction
  • PVP will have an additional 3 points for every team a Faction brings to the field for the tournament 

Each PVP Tournament will count as a separate Event (PS4/XBOX/PC).

In the case of not enough players for an XBOX tournament, those points will be distributed to PS4/PC evenly.
