Opening Ceremonies
I'm pleased to announce the opening of the Ark Hunters Academy (http://www.arkhuntersacademy.com) - a new Defiance fan site dedicated to bringing you the latest news, detailed guides, and helpful tools and resources. Defiance, as a franchise, is growing each and every day, and it’s about to grow a whole lot more with the creation of this Academy. Whether you’re a fan of the show, or the game, or both (why would it not be both?), you will find a home here at the Academy. We’ll give you the training you need to be the world’s greatest Ark Hunter. You’ll decimate hellbugs, 99′ers, scrappers, Dark Matter, and even other players with ease. In the coming weeks, we’ll be building and adding to this site all the tools and information you’ll ever need. Here’s a look at what’s to come.

Detailed Guides

http://i1.wp.com/www.arkhuntersacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/guides.jpg?resize=250%2C150We’re working tirelessly to create the most in-depth and easy-to-understand guides (http://www.arkhuntersacademy.com/guides/) that have ever been written for Defiance. We’re scouring the internet and the game, collecting data and organizing it to deliver it to you. We’ll be adding guides with a rapidity you won’t even believe. Some topics for guides will include: Leveling guides, Data Recorder locations, PvP guides!, Co-Op instances strategies, Pursuit guides, and a great intro series called Ark Hunting 101 that will help all new players to the game. All of our guides will be extremely detailed and comprehensive – many will even feature video elements! So check back soon and subscribe to this blog to get updates about what we’re adding as soon as we add it!

Latest News

http://i1.wp.com/www.arkhuntersacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/news.jpg?resize=250%2C150The Academy is not just about guides. We’re about everything Defiance. That includes staying up to date with the latest news (http://www.arkhuntersacademy.com/category/news/) for both game and show. We’ll make sure you know about the latest developments. We’ll post every new set of patch notes, production news, major dev comments, pretty much anything that you’ll ever need to know. You’ll have so much news, you’ll be sick of it. But you’ll still read it, because it’s about Defiance, and Defiance is awesome!

Kick-Off Contest Coming

http://i0.wp.com/www.arkhuntersacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/contest.jpg?resize=250%2C150We were hoping to have the contest ready for the launch of the Academy and the show, but our prizes are still being manufactured. So, until they’re complete, the contest is going to remain top secret. But rest assured, it’s on the way. You are going to absolutely love the prizes. Like, you’re going to squeal like a little girl when you see them. We’ll be announcing the details for the contest within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned! (Can you tune in to a website?)

What Would YOU Like To See?
The Academy is a Defiance FAN site. This means it’s made by fans for fans. We want to hear what you would add if you were on the staff here at the Academy. Let us know in the comments, or feel free to use the contact form (http://www.arkhuntersacademy.com/contact/). This site is constantly being worked on and we’re building new parts every day. Your ideas could very well be added. If they’re good enough, or if you have a lot, and if you wish, you could join the team! By team, I mean one person, solo, uno, it’s just me here. But with the help of the fans of Defiance, we can make this Academy the premier place for everything Defiance!

Good idea, but all I get clicking the link in the sig is a blank page.

EDIT: Using Firefox (might help to know)

HAHAHAHAHA! Oh, if only the devs could make their in-game names show up bright pink and very visible so we could all go jump them. Oh, and make friendly fire hurt them.
