I played against a guy in PvP named "IMGOINGINDRY".

If anyone deserves to be a character on the show, it's him.

lol I was thinking something along the same lines. So many people look so similar that a ton of people might as well be chosen at once. They probably won't use the name, so who's to say who it is? "Gosh, it's a guy in armor, that's me!!"

Probably can't use anyone that's named after existing properties either such as the 12 Rid****s and 7 Bobafetts I've seen

Maybe It's the default character bug/glitch everyone seems to see while fighting in major arkfalls.

Looks like one of our lucky toons from the game will show up on a wanted poster in the TV series, for about half a second as the main char walks past it.....

Guild Names/charavatoons names cant be stupid ones, I have done the write up of an about what was expected. I hope they will cover this or did cover it...forgot to watch after the show, will have to write a reminder for myself.

They said a few things I'm drawing conclusions from, but take it with a grain of salt.

1. It will be the first player character (singular) to be seen on the show
2. Regarding the competition, we should "practice everything" in preparation
3. I believe they said "your character's likeness in the show," or something along those lines

A co-op or clan-related achievement seems out the window, since it's just one person who wins. My two best guesses are 1, a PvP related competition (high score in a shadow war seems most likely), or 2, best overall arkfall score within a set timeframe. From what we've seen so far from this game, I can't imagine they'd add any sort of special content just for this contest.

Another possibility is them adding a new pursuit (like score top in an arkfall,) and they'd then have a random drawing out of everyone who earned it.

Either way, it sounded like your char's name won't be in the show (except maybe in the credits.)

oh they did go over it? must not have been paying attention.
i doubt it'll be something pvp cause pvp isn't the games main focus. if its related to arkfalls that'd be great i'm always number one if i make it a few minutes in. even when i'm late i mak top 5 ;)

sucks that they didn't actually give any info on how to get your character chosen besides practice everything. how would that even work though? isn't the season's episodes already filmed?

**Defiance Sci-fi gameplay collides with Syfy television in this shooter-MMO Words:Ryan Taljonick**
Ok so again out of @GAMER magazine #24 of November 2012, page 34;2nd paragraph (and I quote) Defiance (the TV show) will air on the Syfy channel, featuring NPC characters from the game as they work together to survive the aftermath of an alien terraforming attack on Earth. The big draw here is that the show will incorporate in-game events in its overarching narrative, and, best of all, player-made clans and characters from the game will eventually become real organizations and characters on the show, creating on massive, interconnected experience-so long as your character isn't named something dumb, like, say, xXDarkNinja420Xx. (end quote)

Well whatever they decide on it can't be damage based since too many hackers have altered their client based damage dealing numbers.

Well they better not base it on something like that.

But I would expect it to be a human or irathian and an Ark Hunter 8).

I would expect it to be someone that does Arkfalls though. Maybe someone that has done the most?

The show would be beyond epic if they had someone with a character name like "SeargentSnuggles" on the show as some deranged person.

Wont happen (no that's not my in game name) but would be hilarious if they drew at random and got some derp name guy.

They could easily pass it off as a nickname of some sort and make their real name something more appropriate.

As I indicated in my last post I'm just guessing here, but the fact that they specifically said "practice everything" and told people who don't have the game to go pick it up and get playing, I can't imagine it's something people could have been unknowingly working toward before this week.

For it to be a reasonably fair competition, it has to be something that extends over a reasonable amount of time, and unless they plan on actually bringing in a bunch of player characters, it has to allow for a winner from across multiple servers/timezones/whatever.

I'd also assume it'd have to be available for participation by players on xbox, ps3, and PC. But who knows.

I don't want it to be damage based, but I'm having trouble figuring out how they could determine an objective winner without basing it on some type of score... which is more or less all damage outside of PvP.

Maybe it really will be a new set of timed pursuits, and whoever completes them gets entered into a drawing. Who knows!

This may be why they've kept the initial character customization to a minimum, because they already have the actor and will just change the name.

I doubt they will use an actor for our Ark Hunter. Something like a 'Wanted Poster' in Nolan's Jail with the name and likeness of the "winner" would be my guess.

I have an alt called Michael Ironside.

The fact they could actually get Michael Ironside to play Michael Ironside is reason enough for me to win.

Really, though who would make that kind of name? Shouldn't be an issue.
