Localization, translation, and dubbing takes a massive amount of time (there are around 3 million words of text in-game alone), and we were only able to obtain and announce rights to South America last November: November Team Update: New Countries Added - News | Lost Ark - Free to Play MMO Action RPG

While we may consider working this on the future, because of the closeness to launch, it was not possible to fully support an additional language

This is fine, it has no bearing on your ability to play tomorrow

This starts when the game unlocks and users can play, so at 9 AM PT

I don’t think whether Head Start is happening was ever in question; while it will take some time to decrypt the game on launch due to Steam-side processes (which is a separate topic), it starts tomorrow at 9 AM PT and that is not changing. If you have purchased a Founder’s Pack, you will be able to play at this time.

This is what I have received from Valve about their decryption process: “Decryption is an active process on the user’s machine. The time it takes to decrypt the game has a large degree of variability depending on the total size of the game, the customer’s CPU capabilities, and the customer’s disk I/O speed. Customers with top-of-the line systems will likely be able to start the game within a few minutes. Customers with older/slower machines will take longer.”

We have received an answer directly from Valve:

Hey everyone,

While Lost Ark may be a game that is rated M for mature, that does not give folks free reign to say or act however they please. Amazon Games has a Code of Conduct that we actively enforce because the safety of our players and community is paramount. Even the presence of a chat filter does not mean you can type whatever you want and expect others to ignore you.

In the words of Bill and Ted, be excellent to each other. Do that, and you can’t go wrong.

That was a response to a statement that Steam has the tools to prevent that exploitation.

Regarding in store pricing, we provided these suggestions and feedback to the monetization team.

We definitely hear the feedback and we’ve shared it with the monetization team to see what solutions are possible.

If you recall the issues we had with the Turkish Founder’s Pack prices you will see that we already experienced this problem.

Right now there is not regional pricing in the in-game shop

While I apologize for the confusion, nothing has been reverted and we will not be patching the game before Head Start in 15 hours; this was erroneously included in the patch notes and has been removed since it is not in our launch build.

They do not have time limits, so you can definitely use them when you prefer
