Heroes of Arkesia!
As we get closer to September 28th we wanted to give you some more details on how the server merges will be done here in Lost Ark. We have already released a comprehensive list of which regions and servers will be affected by the merges as well as what to expect if your server does merge in our Server Merge Details article. Today we want to share information on what players can expect on the 28th when our update and merges happen.
At the start of downtime, all regions will begin maintenance at the same time. Regions that are not experiencing merges will have an estimated downtime of 4 hours to deploy the new update. Regions that are experiencing merges, however, will experience a downtime that is longer. We are currently estimating that the downtime for regions with merges estimated to take up to 16 hours. This is due to the sheer volume of information that needs to be moved from one server to another. Teams from Amazon will be working alongside Smilegate this entire time to assure that any possible issues that may arise will be addressed promptly. Each region will come online as it completes its update and merge. We will also have our team giving updates to the progress of the merges on our Official Forums.
We know that this is a long time to wait to play new content, however we want to make sure that the process is handled correctly. In anticipation of this momentous event our teams have created a special two week login bonus track to celebrate our completion of merges.
