Lost Ark has become an overnight success. While some gamers might have been awaiting its release, many had no idea it was even coming out. In fact, the only way I even heard of it was because so many of my gaming friends were playing it!

The latest MMO to join the gaming circuit, Lost Ark is a mix between Diablo and New World. Personally, I consider Lost Ark to be the game that Elder Scrolls Online wanted to be.

Regardless of how you view the game, there are some bugs that players (myself included) have suffered from. Perhaps the most annoying one is what we’re here to solve today!

Lost Ark utilizes Easy Anti-Cheat, a program used in many popular games. It’s an anti–cheat service that counters hacking and cheating in multiplayer PC games. However, it does have its faults.
