Lost Ark EU Servers Shutting Down For Another Maintenance – Notes

New Hotfix to hopefully make things better.

Europeans are still struggling with their Lost Ark servers, with tons of issues that prevent them from having a smooth gameplay experience. Aside from the server issues, server maintenance is also not welcome according to the in-game “Area Chat.” Nevertheless, a fix is needed, and Amazon Games has decided to take the EU servers down for its deployment. The servers will be terminated in approximately an hour from the time of this writing.

The maintenance will last approximately 2 hours. The Lost Ark servers in Europe Central and Europe West will be coming down on 2/23 at 5 AM UTC / 6 AM CET for a hotfix. Downtime is estimated to last up to 2 hours.

Based on Amazon Games’ official forums, the fix will help address matchmaking issues. Furthermore, it prevents users from getting the free 1-year long Crystalline Aura by joining the EU West servers. If you’re unaware of the issue, you can visit our article regarding that.

For the complete changelog for today’s update, check below:

  • Applied a fix to help address matchmaking issues. We will continue to monitor matchmaking closely after tonight’s hotfix.
  • Fixed an issue with the Launch Event showing an item level 1420 Rapport Chest as the Day 15 reward.
  • Fixed an issue where the [Weekly] Battle Item Bundle stated it can be claimed 10 times. This has been changed to reflect the actual purchase limit of once a week.
  • Fixed an issue with the 10 day Attendance Event on the Europe West region. The Day 3 reward has been changed to Una’s Tasks [Daily] +1 x10, and the Day 6 reward is now Rare Combat Engraving Recipe Selection Pouch x10.

Thank you for your support and patience as we continue to fix bugs and resolve issues in Lost Ark.
