Why are Lost Ark Servers Locked?

Lost Ark Server Locks Explained

Days earlier before its launch, early access for Lost Ark was available on February 8 for those residing in North America, Europe, and Latin America. Those who own one of the four Founder’s Pack will also be able to play the game. 

According to Smilegate RPG, the early access period of Arkesia was very busy, with many heroes exploring the region. This resulted in various issues, such as poor queue times.

Due to the problems that players have experienced with the queues, developers from Smilegate RPG [1] have taken multiple steps to improve the experience in the foreseeable future for those who have been affected. 

Due to the huge influx of player count that has reached the queue times, a new character creation policy has been implemented. This limits the characters that new players can create. 

Although this won’t affect players who have already created a character on one of the popular servers, it is being implemented to prevent queues from growing even further. The goal of this policy is to help prevent players to create additional characters without limits.
