There are four factions in the game - The Cartel, Dragon Syndicate, The Mafia, and Street.
Paying respect to Syndicate increases your max attack permanently by 1 point. Paying respect to Mafia increases your max energy permanently by 1 point. Paying respect to Street increases your max defense permanently by 1 point. You can pay respect to Syndicate, Mafia, or Street every 24hours.
Maximum respect for each faction is 6000. You belong to the faction for which you have the highest respect or which you last paid respect for if more than one are equal. It is worthwhile continue paying respect after you have maxed all factions because you will still gain the stat points.
Once you max out on paying respect to a faction, you will get one of the following faction powers, depending on which faction you last paid respect to:
- Cartel: +20 Attack, +1% Critical
- Syndicate: +10 Attack, +2% Critical
- Mafia: +30 Attack, +15 Defense
- Street: +15 Attack, +30 Defense
