Lost Ark's June Update Won't Be Out On Time Since Players Had Concerns Over Monetization
Bots were a big problem the team wanted to get a grasp on, too.
Fans of Lost Ark will have an extra week to wait since the June update, originally slated for release tomorrow, will now be delayed until next week on June 30th. We'll have to wait until later this week for a more detailed explanation of the delay, but a quick tweet and forum post point vaguely to the main cluprits: bots making the dev team angry (and busy) and players having concerns with some game systems and how the monetization around those systems works.
We want to thank you for your patience surrounding the June Update which will be released on June 30.
Detailed info about the delay will be coming later this week in a larger Team Update, but we wanted to provide a bit of insight ahead of this.

While it is nice to see the team taking feedback, particularly feedback around money, seriously enough to delay a patch, it'll be interesting to see what type of changes a week can make as that doesn't seem like a long time for something the forum post calls "multiple concerns of our playerbase, primarily in terms of monetization and related systems."
Bots also had a field day in Lost Ark in June, reaching all time highs in the free-to-play game. The team is hoping the extra week for additional changes and the recent banning of thousands of accounts will help pave the way to improvements in this area.
We'll keep you upsted as the team provides more details on the planned changes.

My thoughts are a game should not sell more than its worth to buy outright and if there was a shop in game that it would not allow anyone to over buy more than max of $200 in total, even that is max over.
These other game companies like BLIZZARD that are grabbing 10k, 20k, 100k, from players need to stop and get out of gaming.
