So i decided to try lost ark again after a while of not playing from being burnt out.
When loading the game i noticed it took longer that usual to load, although load times are long anyways. When it finally reached the screen to pick the server, i was met with a particularly abrupt error “Server Authentication Failed ( 10010 )”. I thought this was odd and proceeded to follow every guide under the sun to fix it and it didnt work.
Now i am at a point where nothing has worked so far, and i am NOT using a VPN and i also removed the google DNS stuff and reset it to normal DNS protocols. Still it is not working.
i manage to fix my issue: if you are using LG software for your screen or Your Phone app on windows close it from windows (bottom right)… actually close everything! looks like indie company thinks im bot if an app works behind.
