ASMONGOLD WARNS LOST ARK WILL LOSE PLAYERS OVER “PAY TO WIN” ARGOS ABYSSAL RAID

WHAT HAPPENED?

Smilegate recently added the all-new Argos Abyss raid into Lost Ark, but its supposed “pay to win” nature has enraged fans across Arkesia – including Asmongold.

To take on Argos, you require an Item Level of 1,370 minimum, which is pretty hefty given that Tier 3 gear is very difficult to upgrade.

As you continue to upgrade, the chance of your adjustments working falls, meaning fans have been forking out real-life cash in order to enhance their items.

While he notes that Lost Ark is “fundamentally a pay-to-win game,” in his March 14 video addressing the subject, Asmongold concludes “I think that whoever is in charge needs to do two things.

I hope that Amazon can get this message before the game attracts an even worse reputation. I think that every day this is an issue it will be bleeding players, bleeding respect, bleeding integrity, and the faster they stem that bleeding and start healing that wound, we can have a better game.

How the devs go about solving this remains to be seen, but hopefully, for the sake of Arkesia, it’s sorted soon!
