Why is your Faction choice important?

During the 150 day EXORDIUM, the CITADEL tech tree will be discovered by each faction. The CITADEL tech tree will provide asynchronous advantages to each faction and CITADEL throughout the game. The EXORDIUM will allow CITADEL, RELIK, and factions to unlock the 8 branches of the tech tree, discovering technology that will greatly contribute to their faction's power and prosperity.

At the start of the EXORDIUM, a CITADEL will choose to stake to a faction and tech tree branch. Each CITADEL will earn the same amount of research points as they earn DRAKMA. That is to say, the SEKT multiplier applies both to prelude DRAKMA and research points.
