Leagues, similar to guilds or clans in other MMORPGs, are player created metagroups whose aim is to coordinate a large group of players in order to ease grouping up for raids, hard alerts or PvP arenas. Players cannot be part of multiple leagues at the same time on any one character.
Joining a league is not a necessity, though if going without a league, you are risking the chance of getting kicked out of an instance if you screw up, in a league it could still be sorted.
Starting a LeagueEdit
To create a League you have to start a regular group with 2 other players (minium) and click the Create League button in your Social Window, then pick a name for your league. As of the "Free to Play" update, only Legendary account players can create a new league, However once started, a league stays even if the leader goes to non legendary status.
Joining a LeagueEdit
To join a league you need to be invited to it and then accept the invitation via the pop-up window.
Members who have permission to invite to the league will see a green "Invite New Member" button in their league window.
Leaving a LeagueEdit
To leave your current league go into the Social window, highlight your name and choose the Leave League option.
On the PC, click F4, select League, and click your own name. Then, click leave league.
On the PS3 free to play version, you will need to press on the left arrow button to open up the menu.
Managing a LeagueEdit
As your league's leader you can:
- invite players to join your league
- remove players from your league
- access the league's unique voice chat channel
- change a member's rank
- edit the Message of the Day (MOTD)
- allow or deny any of the above privelages
Message of the DayEdit
The MOTD will be shown to all members on login, at least once per day. Changes to the MOTD will display to all online members immediately.
Players may copy text from the MOTD into their clipboards, making it a good place to display URLs or third-party voice chat info.
Within a league, ranks can be used to better distinguish new members from veteran ones, specify group/raid leaders and otherwise promote order and heirarchy within the league. There are always 10 ranks in each league.
The standard league ranks are as follows, but can be customised within each league
To disband a league access the league control window and press the Disband League button.
