After the MMO's release Lost Ark Gold on February 11, it hit the record of 1,324,761 peak concurrent players, which puts it second only to PUBG in the history of Steam concurrents leaderboard. These were likely legitimate players wanting to play the no-cost action RPG that had been extremely popular in Korea for several years prior to when Amazon launched servers in Europe and the Americas. But with over a million accounts now deleted, we might see a decrease in its concurrents thus far that Steam Charts clocks at around 683,509.
One user on Twitter said that they've seen the Lost Ark server queue drop from 8,000 to 950, although whether it's due to the bans is uncertain.

Botting is an incredibly common MMO behavior, and is the term used to describe the use of software that automatizes repetitive actions, for example grinding enemies of the starter zone to level characters, typically with the intent to turn the profits. New World is another game that has suffered from botting however, the last time we were told about a ban within that $40 game the figure was 7,700.
Lost Ark being free-to-play cheapest Lost Ark Gold makes it a great for bots to take advantage of, as they do not lose money if they're banned, which could be a reason why the numbers are so high. PUBG also free to play, was once reported to have received thirteen million bans on cheaters in just a little more than a year. With a rate of one million bans every each month Lost Ark is currently in the process of matching that even though it is possible that if Amazon as well as Smilegate are as effective at detecting bots, at least a portion of those running their games will surely quit.
