Can we please stop ignoring a glaring issue with the NA client of the game?
Theres no reason why we should have to gimp our medium-high end pcs to get the game to function semi decently. Even with all the troubleshooting in the world, fps spikes are ruining gameplay for myself, and others when you cant perform a mechanic due to a freeze. Ive asked loads of other people and theyve all said the same answer, “we just deal with it”…which is absolute hotdog water. I can run every other game perfectly fine without a single hiccup aside from this one, I’ve undervolted my pc cause the game was causing it to overheat, and ive changed every imaginable setting just to keep dropping frames…its usually when something important happens (i.e someone dies, mechanics starts/ends, or when my meteor lands when I play sorc, or just completely at random) Ive been trouble shooting this for 2 months and frankly Im getting tired of it.
I know theres more of us out there with this issue. Several of us have played on KR/RU servers (including myself) and the game ran perfectly fine without a hiccup. Upvote this or something to make amazon aware please. Have a good one.
I think the game has bad codes, really bad if you compare with other games. When you open, it freezes few seconds before it opens, whatever you open it happens. It is SUPER ANNOYING how bad it is and there are so MANY issues for this game. No matter if you have good computer, it still happening. If I have to be honest, Lost Ark is one of the MOST annoying games ever I have played.
Im assuming you are using an SSD? I tried running LA on my older non-SS drive and it was horrible, the game suffered badly. cant remember if it was specifically fps
Im assuming you’ve looked at task manager and performance across CPU, GPU, ram, disk read and write and that you’ve updated your drivers… ?! Im also assuming you dont have leagues of unnecessary services and processers running on your machine? im also assuming you are in windows “game mode”?
Have you checked your GPU performance / spec?
So all that said, a cpu shouldnt never naturally overheat these days (unless you previously overclocked it) unless you have an obstruction against the fan, or your ambient temperature is in the 40oC / 108oF range AND you have the machine running for hours and hours on end at high heat (it cant dissipate the heat effectively enough)
My issue is lag spikes, but thats not your issue.
I dont really agree with this. I think alot of the caching and progressive loading code isnt bad at all.
No ones ever gonna have perfect code right? Theres too much that goes into it. Thats not the problem though. KR and RU servers run perfectly fine, hell…I even downloaded the RU client again to make sure I wasnt trippin’. Sure enough, the game ran perfectly fine.
As Ive said in the original post, Ive done everything possible on my end to fix this issue. Ive even wasted money buying a new cooling unit AND cpu prematurely. This is not a fix thats possible on my end, Im aware that others can run the game fine, I used to be apart of that group when we played RU/KR servers. To reinterate what I said in this OP, theres just not enough of us standing together to make the issue known to the amazonians, so I guess the only solution is “just deal with it”
Something is wrong on your side I think, apart from the 2minutes or so loading time the only game hindrance I experience is due to a broken access point I am waiting to be changed.
I also run novsync and useallavailable cores on my Lost ark steam startup settings.
As others have stated, sounds like a problem on your side as I’ve not had those issues. Just because other games work find doesn’t mean that the issue isn’t on your end. It could be ANY number of things thats causing your issue. Things like a bad driver, bad install, hardware issue, etc.
And why is it ONLY effecting LA? Im gonna keep asking that because its the only thing causing the issue, and yes Ive reinstalleed this 80gb game like 4 times, and verified the steam folders another 10 times
