“The great popularity of Lost Ark has caused queues in all regions ranging from a few hundred to hundreds of thousands,” they comment in the statement. “Our server team has been working tirelessly with Smilegate RPG pushing existing servers to the absolute limit of their capacity while maintaining stability and adding more servers to each region.”
