Survarium has received a massive new patch that changes how the faction system works by increasing the amount of reputation required to gain new ranks and giving all factions beginner and maximum level items.

The list of patch notes is huge, with plenty of faction-specific changes. We’re going to post some of them below, but you can find the rest on the game’s forums.
