Just a month after Lost Ark launched on Steam, the developer is rolling out one of the biggest ban waves we’ve seen in a game, removing “over a million” bot accounts per day. No wonder there were complaints about bots, huh?
Upon launch, the game peaked online as early as February 11 with 1,324,761 concurrent players, placing it second only to PUBG on the all-time Steam leaderboard. But with over a million accounts currently deleted, we could see the number of players drop to around 683,000.
The Lost Ark team also acknowledged that “a small number of players may be misidentified as bots.” Anyone who thinks they have been hit by a wave of millions of bots despite being a fair player can appeal their ban by submitting a ticket to Amazon Games Support.
