The Final Fantasy 14 Housing Lottery Is Finally Fixed

Final Fantasy XIV’s housing lottery is finally fixed after one month of being broken.  On April 16, an FFXIV maintenance update indicated that the latest lottery cycle for housing in-game was broken, so when checking the placard where winners were to be shown, the placard said there were no winners. This meant nobody could obtain a house. Polygon reports the issue has been fixed as of yesterday, and now, winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly.  “As I mentioned in our previous update, we will be conducting maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida writes in a new update. “This maintenance will fix identified errors and properly relay lottery results for affected plots to the appropriate servers.” As a result of this maintenance fix:  Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly, and land purchases may be finalized accordingly. Temporary suspensions imposed on plot purchases and relocations will be lifted.  Yoshida says that if you have a winning lottery number, you should finalize your land purchase by Thursday, May 26, as the next lottery cycle will begin that day, at which point, you will lose the ability to claim land you won during the current lottery. The next one will start on May 26 and have a typical five-day entry period and a four-day results period.  If you’re a winning participant who has already received a gil refund due to the recent lottery break, you will still be able to finalize a purchase on a won plot of land. Even if you received a refund and have since found out you won the lottery, you’ll still be treated as a winning lottery player.  “In Patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC by which you may voluntarily return the deposit you were accidentally refunded,” Yoshida writes. “As these housing lottery issues have been significant and caused great stress and frustration in many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly rescind any refunded gil. We will make an announcement regarding the voluntary return of housing deposits once the NPC in question is ready to be implemented.  “In closing, I would like to thank you all once again for your patience and understanding this past month, and extend my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do everything in our power to safely restore your data, fix any remaining issues, and bring you all a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”  For more FFXIV, read our exclusive interview feature with Yoshi-P, and then read Game Informer’s Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker review.

Earning a few of the biggest roars at KCON 2018 NY, the lady group performed their ’90s-inspired new single “Lady,” plus a couple of other singles, to greet their U.S. fans on the East Coast.

    Backstage at the ultimate, because the news hit a record-breaking 53 just, 000 K-pop fans had attended the festival officially, EXID spoke to Fuse viewed their finest memories from the ’90s back, looked forward to what’s coming next and much more.

    FUSE: Your latest single “Lady” is actually inspired by the ’90s. You guys are ’90s babies, growing up for the reason that right time. Do you remember any songs which were really really popular in Korea through the ’90s time or from your own childhood?
    Jeonghwa: I was very young, born in 1995, so by enough time I could actually pay attention to music and remember it had been already the ’00s so most likely the other members which are better off answering this question. [Laughs]
    Hani: JYP [Park Jin Young], I liked JYP songs really.
    Hyelin: I’d have school festivals and my pal and I’d actually cover groups like S.E.Fin and s.K.L. and I believe that helped my dream to become singer actually.
    LE: I recall songs from Biggie- who’s from NY! Where we have been!- and Tupac, yes, needless to say. Songs like “California Love,” I recall listening to a whole large amount of old hip-hop music and songs. We feel like trends repeat themselves and we’re so happy that they are in a position to sing songs that people heard whenever we were younger.

    Do you see any trends from your own childhoods returning?
    I recall “fanny packs.” In Korea, it had been called by them a sack, but it’s called a fanny pack. Yeah, but it’s returning, we call it a member of family side, you understand, a side bag because it’s cooler. But also for me, I recall that it is specifically something my father wore in those days, however now it’s a thing that people wear.
    Hani: Bucket hats are back style. And like the way the rim bypass and round just, trends around bypass and, you know? Also to add on compared to that, with regards to pants even, then there have been pants with really wide legs back, but it’s needs to come back. And again fashion once, it comes and goes.

    No more skinny jeans for me personally. Thank you for anyone memories, but seeking to the near future forward, what else does EXID have to arrive 2018?
    Solji’s health has been recovering perfectly so when we’re watching her health progress, we’re seeking to keep coming back as all five. I’d like an organization comeback and the group wants the fans to keep to anticipate us another as all five. We do hope that the fans continue steadily to await us really.

    “We feel just like the world is merely beginning to come around and show love for K-pop”

    – Jeonghwa

    year for K-pop

    2018 feels as though an extremely special. EXID’s music is reaching so much more people than ever before, I think. Can you feel that it is a special year too?
    To begin with, we didn’t have just as much time and energy to go abroad, however when we do see our group mentioned in the media we consider it and we’re always touched to see what’s being said about us and that we’re being discussed overseas. Whenever a chance is got by us to go abroad, you can find fans at the airport and the ones are the occasions when we recognize that we’re being loved overseas. Anytime we overseas see our fans, we get so much energy therefore much support. We’re always very thankful.
    Jeonghwa: Not only we, but all of the Korean teams try so hard to attain their dreams and it’s really just right given that we feel just like the world is merely needs to come around and show love because of this genre of music.
    Hani: And we feel so proud that it could you need to be because we’re section of this genre, you understand? We note that K-pop culture keeps growing at this time actually, getting to be accepted in this global world, and it’s really really surprising. Which means this sense is felt by us of pride to participate this growing genre.
