Factions are the teams, or Armies, in the BFME games that include beings of the same race along with others who in Middle-earth lore are their allies.

Members of the same faction will not fight each other, as long as they are on the same team, and will cooperate with other factions as long as they are on the same team.

The player chooses a faction when playing a Skirmish or in War of the Ring mode.
