Devs don't understand what "procedurally generated" means?

Procedurally generated maps/worlds are those generated on the fly by the game.  This means no input necessary, the game creates content AS THE GAME IS PLAYED.

In ARK, maps are NOT procedurally generated.  Instead terrain is randomly pre-generated, much like in the old school game simcity 2000.

At best this is an unfortunate misnomer.  At worst it is false advertising.  Either way it should be renamed because it is not an accurate, but somewhat deceptive description.

Was anyone else disappointed by this?

At first I thought it was like minecraft's.Now Im disappointed.
