While both problems affect slices of the community, the ongoing effect of market instability could be more damaging quicker. Disconnects and instability continue to belong to the work the Lost Ark group is doing, and they’ve assured more updates on progress there.
After the work was done, the spot was deemed a success, based upon favorable reaction and data, so then the changes were set to be applied throughout all areas of the global release.
For details, see the upgrade at Lost Ark.
This work follows ongoing efforts to fix some disconnection problems affecting some players, which the group has attempted to repair as part of a couple of patches so far. Those possible fixes did not solve the issues, so that one is continuous. It does appear to make sense that the Auction Homework was applied to 2 test areas initially and examined to make sure it was successful in light of that other work.
Yesterday’s modifications were accompanied by some revealed time to get the changes used after reports throughout the weekend pointed to ongoing problems causing instability in the market. While the game was playable while the team made modifications, the Auction House was unavailable. Starting the changes in those two areas was a choice made to see if it worked first, which is a choice that assists the majority of the community if things didn’t see positive modifications after the tweaks.
Still, the updates to the Auction House being presented worldwide make sense, though some indicate ongoing issues with bots and their effect on the economy and the video game, in spite of the groups efforts to adjust in the name of security and eliminate bots.
The Auction Home in Lost Ark has been seeing some widely reported problems, and the team rolled out a patch in Europe Central and North America East to try and address the concerns before rolling changes out extensively.
