Some ark hunters like to get in there and fight the good fight. Others watch events unfold before them and shout advice like they were watching televised drama. With the Armchair Ark Hunter title, let everyone know where you stand. Orů sit.

It sounds like Trion is getting a little passive aggressive about all of the complaining on the forums.

While I do not think they are deliberately trying to say something, you would think they would be more careful, given the current state of things.

Yeah it's definitely a little passive aggression. Given that their last few patches have been met with nothing but disdain you'd think they'd learn from it rather than jabbing at the community. Utterly childish if you ask me. A few good decisions would set things aright, but sometimes it's too much to ask for from companies like this.

A title code for folks watch the show.... to bridge between fans of the show and fans of the game.... That makes it sounds you put in a code for a title for people who watch the show, but don't play, which would be pretty useless. Yeah I see this getting a lot of use. If I leave it in my to be claimed items, will I get salvage for it?

Ok scapes. Because ppl just shout advice at thier tv screen that cant even hear them. And besides which the title is for the game! If were playing the game then we obviously belong to the first group mentioned that like to get in there and fight.......so why would we need an armchair title? To let ppl know that we watch the show as well? Cmon trion! You could have come up with something better than that. This title along with the further explanation stating some ppl like to sit around and be backseat drivers while sitting on thier *** yelling at others......is clearly a defensive and cheap shot at the player community. It just sounds smug to me. After everything thats happened since beta and launch day, when will they start listening to the player community? And not hitlering it up and doing what they want.
And we all know that trion could change the reward for an ego code fairly fast. Show deadline? Pretty sure theres no proof this reward title or explanation existed months ago.

But i could be wrong. Im only human.

A couple of shoot fest, and what not since no added data recorders on that side of the map. That area should of had at least 2-3 new co-op instances, and not recycled maps - be creative.

"Months" ago would have put it at the release of DLC 5, when you guys completely altered the core mechanics of the game. So no, I think this is a perfectly credible criticism of the use of this title under current player / dev team relationships.

Damn Supes, you never seem to fully read or comprehend whats going on before you respond. The issue we have is that the title they gave us is an insulting one. Not like "The small amount you offered me is insulting", like literally "Your calling me an insulting name" type of insulting. If you want to keep throwing your opinions around, that's fine, but when you try to insult us for 'crying' over stuff like this because it's free, you're making yourself look pretty small.

I thought it was weird that one of the "7th Legion" titles wasn't "Legionary." I'd like some Roman rank titles in the game, personally.

SPQR would be pretty cool.

German doesn't have an exact equivalent to "armchair general" so they turned it into Wannabe-Arkhunter. Haven't seen anyone sporting that title yet ;)

I Wannabe an Arkhunter, but the lag doesn't allow me to be. I think we are all Wannabe Arkhunters until servers are fixed. Are development teams that break a game so significantly Wannabe(s) as well?

SPQR does not mean what you think it does. Roman soldiers did not tattoo it on their bodies.

It was roughly the equivalent of writing "City of New York" on a manhole cover, "The United States of America" on your money, or otherwise marking your stuff as belonging to your body of government.

Also it makes no sense lore-wise.

How they could make it even MORE insulting in another language is incredible.

I laughed when I saw the reward, not because it was funny but because it's a negative term and they've been doing a bang up job with pouring gasoline on the fire. Their explanation on the page makes zero sense in the context and the defensive clarification is just icing in the cake.

Dear Trion,
apparently you need a non-native English speaker like me to tell you that "Armchair Whatever" is a negative term. You are welcome for my extensive research ( 5 seconds) which pulled up this:

Urban Dictionary: Armchair General
A person who sits in a chair behind a computer and leads people or at least attempts to, instead of doing it in person. Usually complains about government, organization, military, political, or religious events through blogs, forums, and social networking sites.

Well there's your problem right there, your using a dictonary written by corrupt and or offensive people, that can put anything they want on the web with no refrence.

Going by the Oxford dictonary armchair arkhunter can mean unpractical arkhunter.. I haven't seen this much fighting over a defiance tag since that time everyone got that psychopath tag for completing on of the coop maps...

You know... I think a lot of you are really disgruntled and are reaching way too much for anything to be mad about. I'm not defending or excusing any decisions Trion has made, but this title is what it is. Take it at face value.

We are all sitting back taking arks with our fingers. We are not Joshua Nolan or Irisa actively taking arks. While I can think of a million better titles that could have been chosen for patrons I don't think it was meant as a sneer. Of course, that's my opinion.

Oxford adopts a similar meaning and he wasn't relying on just the dictionary. Anyone with a modicum of world experience and a scintilla of common sense knows that when armchair is used as an adjective it always has a derogatory aspect to it.

From Oxford: "lacking or not involving practical or direct experience of a particular subject or activity."

Feel free to explain how you can tell someone that they have no practical or direct experience doing their job or hobby but not have it be an insult.

Sure no problem. If your like me and like to stick with one play style, snipeing, even when doing things like fighting the motherload, fighting helbugs at a major would not be considered practical.

That's just one example.



So how insulted were you when you got the psychopath tag? This question is for anyone reading it...

First of all, the word practical and the phrase "practical experience" mean two very different things.

Since you like the dictionary so much, go look up "context" and "connotation". You do not seem to know what they mean.

You get the psychopath title after completing the Island of Lost Soldiers achievement. The main point of the storyline in that map is that a guy named "Psycho Pete" is killing people and talking to Hellbugs. The word "psychopath" is used multiple times in the script of the instance. This is what is known as "context". It is a good thing you went and looked it up!

If you had done a map all about proctology first, then maybe it would be less offensive when I tell you to pull your head out of your ***.

Ive seen you post here before... You like to try and mentally harm people esp people that dont deserve it... Because of this your ****ed.

Anyway moving on too your example, its flawed... My example works fine given what the objective was. I would say its you that needs to look up the definition of the words youv written me BUT in this case I know you have purposely skewed the defintion of airchair AND the motive behind why trion would give out this free tag too people that entered last weeks code.

All proper gamers have swivel chairs. Mine is a Miller Aeron and although it has arm rests, it is most certainly not an armchair. Never mind me, now my chair is offended. Do not offend the chair!

Yes, I skewed it by copying and pasting the entire definition that you cited, rather than just picking out two words that supported my argument the way you do.

It is a shame the way that facts skew arguments. Trion should nerf facts next. They are too OP.
