Lost Ark Passes 20M Players

Amazon Games announces that Lost Ark has surpassed 20 million players worldwide (give or take a million bots). All this success has come quickly, as it's still less than a month since the official launch of the MMORPG. Here's word:
Amazon Games and Smilegate RPG recently announced that Lost Ark, the free-to-play massively multiplayer online action role-playing game, has exceeded 20 million global users. In the first three days after launching in the West, more than 4.7 million new users joined the player community, and currently more than 10 million of Lost Ark’s come from North America, Europe, South America, and Australia.

“Overall, the excitement surrounding Lost Ark from around the world is quickly gaining steam, as evidenced by the growing number of global players,” said Christoph Hartmann, VP, Amazon Games. “Together with Smilegate, we are committed to supporting the growing community with a robust roadmap of updates in the years to come.”

Lost Ark continues to be one of the most critically acclaimed games worldwide, with aggregate scores of 83 on OpenCritic and 81 on Metacritic for the game’s massive open world and quests, detailed battle system, and excellent visuals. The highest number of concurrent users was 1.32 million, the second highest in Steam history.

“Lost Ark has been well-received by experts in terms of development value and game quality, and the number of the users is steadily increasing,” said Wongil Chi, CEO, Smilegate RPG.

the last time i played it i wore put the G key. That and the report button for gold spammers.

The mindless go see x then y then x again got tedious. It would have been better if it had progression ot backwards and forwards all the time.
Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

I have no actual clue why I am playing this as much as I am. The story isn't at all interesting to me and it really just feels like Diablo with fetch quests, random players, and time gates.

But for some reason I keep coming back to it and playing it for a few hours a day....

The combat and mechanics are really fun. Plus there is solid build diversity and the game is damn pretty with some interesting boss fights and dungeons.

For me the game falls apart at power progression. I can’t stand the honing system and potentially losing a days worth of playing on a 50/50 chance button click.

Yeah, I can grind some other currency to improve that chance. Yeah, I can spend money to get more items to level up gear with. But no. I don’t find that cycle fun or rewarding.

If the narrative or writing was anything but the bare minimum of a passable story, I might of continued to slog through it but with games like Destiny 2 and Elden Ring to play it has completely fallen off.

Absolutely deserved. I am having tons of fun with it. Hate me, but with this I don't need Diablo 4. The fights are frigging AAA in this game. The story... well... Run of the mill. The characters are VERY typically exaggerated Asian character with hilarious haircuts and 9 ft weapons. But the diversity of the world, the exploring and looting, and especially the fighting system are top notch.

This game has its hooks in me. I have been playing a ton of this since its launch. There are the gold farmer spam bots, but other than that I have not noticed any bots. I haven't dropped a dime on it yet. I still need to figure out what I should spend my money on in order to reward the company for making such a great game.

I'm actually finding the game kind of fun, in a relaxing/casual sort of way. It's easy to play, the controls are smooth, the UI is easy to navigate. The game makes you feel like you're progressing all the time by throwing tons of rewards at you (geeze, I got a better weapon the other day for just logging in haha). The story is actually deeper than I thought (not that I care about video game stories in general), and there's a lot of attention to detail (some little cut scenes and drama). It definitely has an old-school vibe like a typical hack 'n slash, but there are other players running around that you can group up with etc, and it feels like there's a lot of content, so you're never lost without knowing what to do next

It's a cool, polished game (played up to endgame on RU servers), but yeah... the bots sound out of control on NA.
