Lost Ark 16 February hotfix to address server instability issues

The MMO ARPG Lost Ark, from Slimegate and Amazon Game Studio, is immensely popular. With the mammoth influx of players following its launch in the West, there are bound to be some server issues. We've reported on how players are review-bombing the game on Steam due to long queue times and deployment issues at launch. 

There's also a Lost Ark Error 10027 and the "Cannot Connect Due To Heavy Traffic" issue plaguing EU servers. Following the hotfix update on 15th February, the developers are now getting ready to deploy another Lost Ark hotfix update on 16th February to remedy the situation. Here's what we know so far about the latest hotfix update.
