In Lost Ark the queues are extremely long right now. If you log in after 6:00 p.m., you will not be able to go online before midnight on some servers. But how long can you stand around AFK before you get kicked?
How long is the AFK timer? In Lost Ark you are currently kicked out of the game after 30 minutes. We at MeinMMO tested this ourselves in two attempts and this was also confirmed by some users in reddit.
So if you want to be sure that you won't be kicked out of the game, you have to register within Move by hand for 30 minutes. Otherwise you will lose the connection to the server and have to queue again.
Settings are for ingame view only Can I change my AFK timer? No. While there is an option in-game to change the AFK settings, this is a flag in-game itself. So you can decide whether you are AFK after 15, 30 or 60 minutes in-game .
Actually, Lost Ark shouldn't have an AFK kick at all, at least it doesn't exist in Korea. That's why you also have the option to adjust the time to 60 minutes.
We suspect that due to the long queues the timer was introduced and limited to 30 minutes.
The AFK timer ingame. How long are the queues? That depends on the server in general. If you visit the German servers Beatrice and Asta, you will see several thousand people. On Asta, the first queues were already there on Saturday morning. We followed the situation in our live ticker.
Even on the new and smallest servers, there were at least 10,000 players waiting for a seat at prime time.
Why is that? Lost Ark is currently the most successful . on Steam and even broke some records. Only PUBG had more concurrent players on the platform than Lost Ark at all. More on that here:
