Ever since I started playing again (like a week ago) I am having disconnect problems during loading screens, several times a day (let say 8-10 times yesterday) It is pretty annoying since just loading the game back up takes me 5 min. Steam files are verified, no background programs are running, PC is running fine, no spikes in performance. I tried all the display settings too - windowed, full screen and the third one can not remember now, was getting DC the same on all 3.
Anything else I can try? Is this common thing to do? Has anyone been able to fix their disconnects?
First, I want to thank you for sharing all the detailed troubleshooting you’ve done so far for this issue. The next troubleshooting related with the third party program EasyAntiCheat that is linked within Lost Ark:
Open Lost Ark in your Steam Library.
Right click on Lost Ark’s list title and then Go to Settings < Manage < Browse Local Files.
Open the EasyAntiCheat folder.
Run as administrator EasyAntiCheat_Setup executable file.
Make sure in the drop-down within EasyAntiCheat Service Setup Lost Ark or Current Game is the selected game.
Press Repair Service.
After this process verify Steam Integrity Check files:
Restart your Computer.
Re-lauch Lost Ark.
Please let me know if the issue keeps happening after you make this troubleshooting, I’ll be waiting for you. c(ˆ⌣ˆc)
Thanks for reply. Tried doing your suggested steps but no difference. I am attaching a screenshot of how the game rather freezes than crashes that I stated originally (which eventually it does, but I first get this loading freeze that leads to crash to windows after several minutes waiting).
The loading bar gets stuck at the beginning of loading. At this moment it happened after leaving dungeon, but it can happen basically during any loading screen. It does not happen when an instance is loaded tho. Or at least so far it did not.
Thank you so much for keeping the forum updated senzogamer1,
Since the issue keeps happening and you’ve already verified all your game files within Lost Ark and it’s a general behavior with the loading screens, to further investigate; I’d ask you to please escalate this issue via web ticket to the developer’s team using the link below:
Hey there @Cactacea I have contacted the team but no reply yet, I will let you know once I hear back from them.
EDIT: nevermind, I got a reply but did not see it, the support person was honestly pretty useless, did not even read my message since he suggested step by step exactly things I have said I have done… update windows and GK drivers done, check steam files, done, repair the game using the anti cheat thingy you suggested, done, allow the game in firewall exceptions - was already done…
Hey @distantefix The link you posted is really of no help. This is not a connection issue, at least not on my part, my connection is stable, I never ever had connection problems to any games whatsoever. My windows is updated, my connection is hard-wired (not wifi) - ping around 30, my firewall is functional and LA is set as an firewall exception, no additional programs are running when in game and the game files are verified multiple times.
What pisses me more than anything is the negative effects this is having to my gameplay. You join PVP, get disconnected, and get first warning, this happens again and I get penalty… Happens once again once penalty is lifted and the penalty just gets longer. The same is during chaos dungeons, which it does not let you finish after disconnecting… Really annoying.
Hello, I’m experiencing the same issues you described above for the last 3 months. I get freeze in the loading screen then game crashes for no reason (no error message or something), always happening before or after daily activities like chaos gates/ dungeons (after i take portal) /guardian raids/ travelling around, never happened while entering/exiting the legion raids though. I tried all solutions that support provided to you, but the issues persist. As you said, what is more frustrating is that I can’t finish chaos dungeons after I crash and I lose all rewards, same for the chaos gate and other content. I’m running the game on SSD and also never had connection issues on my side. I hope they will find a solution and provide it to us asap, because this ruins the gameplay for us.
