Some fans have called for a Captcha system or mandated two-factor authentication on sign-in, though Amazon has said these are not on the cards.
"These tools would require sizeable platform and architectural changes to implement in Lost Ark," Amazon wrote. "Real-world account owner identification is another method used in some regions, but the global scale of the Western version of the game and varying laws in the territories where we operate Lost Ark make this a less realistic solution for us.
I get that 2FA might be architecturally onerous and not tenable in some regions, but a Captcha should be pretty simple to implement in the registration process. A sprint or two to implement and test at most. There are lots of robust existing solutions already available. And if a character is manifesting bot-like behavior, freeze the account until they solve a Captcha.
If Russia stops fighting, the war ends. If Ukraine stops fighting, Ukraine ends. Slava Ukraini!
