Lost Ark bans 200k 'players,' which is better than it sounds

Thursday, 12 January 2023

Image via Amazon Games In less than twelve hours, Lost Ark lost more than 200k concurrent players on Steam after a covert bot ban that was meant to help the true players out. This comes as great news after players left and right have been complaining about the endless waves of bots that are flooding the servers, bringing down the performance of the game. These bots have also managed to ruin the economy of the game, as they would grind and sell resources in the Market and Auction House. Even the starting area of the game would be full of 'players' just starting the game that had a clear goal from the get-go.
