Lost Ark is a new and wildly popular MMORPG from Smilegate RPG, topping Steam Charts days before its official release. Naturally, such a popular game will often go down for maintenance with server issues, and there are a couple of ways you can check to see when maintenance times are for the game.
One of the most reliable ways to check the maintenance times of Lost Ark is through the game’s official Twitter account here. The developers have already communicated plans to address some of the game’s issues, such as download speeds, so this will be a reliable way to check the maintenance times of the game.
However, if the Twitter account isn’t updated, you can also opt to check the official forums. Discussions about the in-game servers and other issues will be posted here as well, so check both sources to make sure. Additionally, be on the lookout on the server status page.
If you check these sources and find the game isn’t down, and you’re still having connection issues, you can troubleshoot by restarting your computer or checking your own connection. With the popularity of the game, be sure to diligently check the two sources listed above so you don’t mistake maintenance downtime for connection issues.
