Another update at a scheduled time, and another downtime of the servers. Let's hope the players have learned when it happens and can plan accordingly.
Lost Ark’s weekly update will take place March 31st at 12 AM PT / 7 AM UTC / 9 AM CET, with an expected downtime of 5 hours for all servers and regions. This update includes the following fixes:
The issue where players were starting at Bronze Rank instead of Silver Rank, 1500 MMR, in the Competitive Proving Grounds, has been fixed.
Those players that have already kicked off their Competitive Proving Grounds season will see a positive adjustment made to their MMR. This bump of 250 will close the gap for players who started their season at 1250 MMR instead of the updated 1500 MMR. Players who are just beginning their season will automatically start at 1500.
Additionally, this week's update contains some bugfixes:
- Fixed an issue where the OT timer was not appearing during PvP matches.
- Fixed an issue where chat text could be unsuitably altered or displayed outside of the chatbox.
- Improved the [Weekly] Battle Item Bundle so that players can now select their preferred battle item chests instead of receiving a random grant.
It must be noted that the developer team is aware that the server time is being displayed incorrectly in certain regions in Europe that follow DST, as well, and are working on a fix. Players could have expected the scheduled downtime and update, as it happens every week, at roughly the same time.
