Lost Ark servers go down all day after numerous maintenance delays – Effinate Games


Part one of Lost Ark’s September update was scheduled to release today, bringing players a host of new quality of life changes such as improvements to the chat system and balance changes. However, how small this update is, the players will see. After the update was scheduled to release earlier today, the patch was delayed nearly twenty hours and as of this writing continues to be maintained.

The reason for these maintenance delays is unclear. Community Manager, Roxx, was unfortunately unable to provide any details as to why the update has been delayed all day. According to Roxx, the team found a “critical issue with the build” ahead of the September 7 update. This first message was made over 20 hours ago as of this writing.

Due to the delay of the update, Roxx has also confirmed that a compensation package is on the way. Although the details of compensation are unclear, it appears that the compensation package has been adjusted after each delay. Currently, the game is set to go live at 9:00 PM PST / 12:00 AM EST, with the possibility of the server opening earlier if the issue is resolved in time.

This update was set to include some chat improvements, balance changes to characters like Berserker and Wardancer, and other general changes. You can take a look at the full September 7 patch notes on the official Lost Ark website here. This article will be updated as soon as the update is live, so check back on this post for the status of the Lost Ark server.
