The Legion was one of the strongest and most organized military units in the United Kingdom. It was one of the national MU of the U.K. and the most powerful in terms of damage.
In December 2015 it was discovered that unit dropped from more then 300 soldiers to only 6:
In September 2018 it was discovered that the party has regained a few soldiers and was a the time having 15 able men, lead by the Rodney Mckay as the Commander and as the 2nd Commander. In December 2018 it was detected that Sir Jimmy Savile hold also the position of the 2nd Commander.
The ESO Legion was established in December 2011 as a militia attached to Every Single One party. It was founded by jamesw, Emergy Maxfell, Justice Boomticket and Elle Roslin. The MU was donated by Rednoahl.
It was initially designed as militia, an alternative to official military units who were ignoring younger players in the community. The ESO Legion offered younger players not just a place in a military unit, but a chance to develop themselves alongside their comrades, often helping them with monetary funds and advice.
Even tho it was part of the political organisation, leaders of The ESO Legion were against politicizing it. You didn't have to be in the party to be in the unit. That eventually led to distancing between party and unit and in October 2012 they completely severed ties, and The Legion was born.
After all other official military units failed due inadequate means of funding (government money), The Legion stepped up. It's high organization and self sustainability made it perfect to assume the role of the national military unit.
During 2014, the ID has been changed from the original 580 to 3985. The reason for the change is unknown.
Up to the end of 2012, the command structure was more or less the same as in any other military unit.

From the end of January to the middle of February, Legion began a shift towards a more community-orientated regimental system to encourage teamwork and activity, partially inspired by the successful Ship's Company system previously used by the Royal Navy. Regiments were tasked with their naming, choosing colours, mottos etc, with the idea that future inter-regimental games and competition might be possible.

The Legion has an extensive supplying and distributing method to try to ensure it's soldiers get supplies efficiently. It offers higher supplies for those who are more active or hit harder. It employes tier system that is used not to discriminate towards newer players. More information on this, what the supplies are and how to get a job, are here: http://tinyurl.com/9pfkqht
The tier-based system of supplying is created to promote activity and community within the unit. Every two weeks performance of every member is evaluated and he is assigned to one of the tiers:
|Tier 1 – Militia||Over 200 exp and 20,000 rank points in a two week period||6 Q7s + £10 for every day worked|
|Tier 2 – Auxiliary||Over 1000 exp or 500k rank points in the two week period||8 Q7s + £10 for every day worked|
|Tier 3 - Legionnaire||Over 2000 exp or 1000k rank points in the two week period||10 Q7s + £25 for every day worked|
|Tier 4 - Praetorian||Over 3000 exp or 2000k rank points in the two week period||12 Q7s + £50 for every day worked|
The Legion offers rewards for people who achieve specific things. When something is achieved (like HW medal, SS medal, rank up, level up etc.) members post on The Legion feed in-game and award is received.
The Legion Merit (LM) is a series of decorative awards for services to the MU, first instituted by Rodney McKay in 2012.
