Lost Ark is the #3 most popular game on here?

Lost Ark is the #3 most popular game this year and #2 in the last six months, on mmorpg.com, based on # of hits?  That seems...off.  The discussion forum for the game is almost dead.  Was there a big marketing push or something in the last year?

    At one point it had a lot of buzz so that's most likely why.

    You can play it free on russian servers with a VPN 

    There's an English patch too already.

    Super easy if you want to give it a shot.

    Kiratv on YouTube has a whole guide how to install patch and play if you want to try it.

    Not gonna link it but you can search it easily enough with the info I provided

    It's really not all that - been playing it for a while already.

    It's not terrible but IMO what brings it down is that its basically a themepark mmo with ARPG combat.

    I wish it had more depth of class builds like PoE and depth of gear builds as well... but no

    It's just a linear themepark at heart mostly

    It's due to a phenomenon called drunken upvoting...

    Where do I see the ranking?  The front page have a top voted ranking.

    I don't see a top hit ranking anywhere.

    I am playing Lost Ark the latest RU version.

    It's really an amazing MMO it shines on multiple areas, this is such a needed title on the west but all remains very silent about it.

    The hits don't have anything to do with the people actually posting. A lot of people including myself check out games without posting anything on the game's threads. I believe a majority of people visiting this site check the games without ever posting. If the site had to rely on posters to make an income they would be dead and gone.

    There is no lack of people searching up Lost Ark, it's very wanted on the west and since RU version released there is a lot of west people playing it.

    Lost Ark in terms of hits is now 1st since last month, 2nd over the last 6 months.


    I think the posters of this site are far more oblivious to this game than the people who been browsing it, hence why many hits not translating to many posts.

    Popular? Lol.

    The charts just measure "hits", that is people coming to the website because of some reason to do with a game. That can just be a news article or whatever. It's pretty meaningless tbh.
