They also said in the stream that pvp and co-op matchmaking is working as intended. They have no plans to allow players to search for specific maps.

Yeah, Fuzz, I removed Co-op from Thorn Liro after hearing about that. Most of the Golds are simple now that I know about a better shotgun build, and Nutri telling me about getting above the map is great for Daily/Weekly runs.

I reached max rank with ark hunter bounties this week and did not get the max rep achievement. I did buy a class for 1000 rep, so my rep was not maxed out. It looks like you need to save up all 1500 rep and not spend any for the achievements, or ark hunter bounties does not count, or the achievement is bugged. I think it is a matter of saving up reputation though. I am very glad I have not spent chimera or thorn liro yet.

Ark Hunter Bounties are not considered a Faction in the Pursuit goals, so I'm betting they don't count, but notably it says "max out" as well, not reach Honorable. However, Thorn, Defiant Few and Chimera are all reach Honorable, so there's that. Keeping an eye on that one myself.

Notably Ark Hunter Bounties didn't exist in D13 - only 7th Legion.

I've only spent 250 of my lifetime Ark Hunter rep, so I guess I could save up to the max of 1440 and test whether Ark Hunter Bounties count or not once it is actually "maxed out".

Means I'll be getting Demolitionist roughly a month from now, but it's for a good cause.

For the record, maxing it out does not seem to trigger it (at least on PS4). As mentioned before, it's not listed under the Pursuits for Factions, and just about every achievement is tied to a particular Pursuit.

Hopefully it's just that one not counting. I'm only halfway through Chimera and Echelon, which are my two closest factions to Honored, so I've still got a ways to go to try anything else.

The last twitch stream had them saying thorn liro was supposed to be solo and the map was too small for 4 players. They may add a larger co-op version later though. The devs really don't seem to care how some thing were done on 360 and have new ideas for 2050. Or it was never meant to be co-op and they just couldn't be bothered to fix it.
What about the Defiant Few dailys not working?

They just mention the DF dailies not counting towards the ark hunter bounties each day. It sounds like they are answer different questions when people ask and we are near a month with no update. It's bad enough it takes 8 weeks with a rep boost to max out a faction, but I want them all over with and then will just need defiant few when they fix it at some point.

To say nothing of the fact they'd originally claimed we'd see the update a few weeks ago. And yeah they're crazy inconsistent with answers on stream. Half the time they're not even presenting the issues right, and half the time they seem unaware of even common issues. Audibly sighed when you had a dev claim on stream that vehicle handling was exactly the same...

The wait for the update is brutal. Shouldn't be taking this long but they say "oh well the first patch is gonna be a doozy" and it's like, we're closing on the two month mark. There's probably a lot of legit players who saw what the game was like and that it wasn't really getting updated and decided "nah" in the time it's been taking them to even do any major fixes. We still don't even have Sieges back yet.

I guess it's what I get for having decided to play the game again, but it's still boggling that they went from a mediocre game in D13 to a straight up bad one in 2050.

In the next 2 weeks ill be done with Chimera, Thorn Liro, Soleptor, and Von Bach. At that point, it'll be just waiting on Defiant Few to be patched for daily crap. I am not excited about 8 more weeks of this unattended online game unless they really working on something, but they are way too quiet to have anything good in the works.

On one hand, I'm glad I'm not wasting money on boosts; on the other hand, I'd be just as well to leave what my playtime will end up being to mystery... earliest I could finish even Chimera would be October 4th. Yeesh.

Oh I'm am so glad I started this on an alt account and not my main one it's the same bullshit as the first game. They learned fucking nothing. Normally for a f2p play game I could throw devs close to what a full retail game would cost if not more but the last few weeks playing this???? Yeah they won't see a cent from me.

Guarantee what ever they fix will break something else.

I am surprised nobody has maxed a faction yet. I am 2 days away from the achievement if it works and I was slow to start the contracts. I can't be the only one that has stuck with this unpatched mess this long am I?

I've been playing almost every day for a while now, but I'm not using the boosters, and I've seen no one specifically complain about the achievement/trophy yet on the Defiance forums or community sites. Just to be clear, it's with a specific Faction and not just the Ark Bounty, right?

Correct. I'll update tomorrow when 2 of them hit the cap. Chimera and thorn liro should be done Monday for and and I'll have 4 maxed.

Yeah, have seen your names up on Thorn Liro daily when I've had a chance to play. laugh
Good luck.

I hope those scores are not recent. Unless the weekly needs gold, I get like 2200 points for completing the daily. I just run in a circle while netflix plays. :p

Yeah, the scores were recent. You can just hide above the arena for most of them, tbh.
