Why such a long log in process?

My puter is quite advance with latest G-card and 16-core turbo charged high end chips, not to mention 64G of juicy RAM. Yet every time it takes more than 15 seconds to launch the LostArk. What sup with that? PoE has roughly same size data but opens up within 2 seconds. did I miss something there?

15 seconds is a very short load time for this game. My 3900x and 1660 super take just over 60 seconds to launch the LostArk.
