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.

    Huami Amazfit Band 5 is really a multi-feature fitness watch out for only $45

    The Amazfit Band 5

    Huami has announced the most recent addition to its lineup of Amazfit smartwatch fitness trackers, which are less costly than popular counterparts from Garmin and Fitbit generally. The Amazfit Band 5 has typical fitness tracker features, like a pedometer and heart-rate monitor, plus much more advanced offerings just like a blood oxygen saturation Amazon and monitor Alexa functions, all for $45.

    There certainly are a sampling of Huami-branded features that have a high-tech method of health management. The watch’s BioTracker 2 heartrate monitor audits your resting heart heart and rate rate zones, and can alert you whenever your heartrate gets high too, in accordance with a statement from Huami. OxygenBeats measures your blood oxygen saturation. The PAI, or Personal Activity Intelligence Assessment System, will interpret your daily heartrate right into a score you may use to find out just how much activity you should remain healthy. When used in combination with Bluetooth and “power-saving technologies,” Huami says the watch can last 15 days between charges.

    The watch is filled with plenty more useful whistles and bells, such as a sleep stress and tracker monitor. It is also useful for non-fitness tasks — its Amazon Alexa capability means you may use the watch to create timers, make smart home commands, check notifications and much more.

    Huami has made some big promises for a good watch with this type of good deal tag. In order to test if the Amazfit Band 5 lives around Huami’s claims, you can purchase it today on Amazon in america for $45. In October these devices will hit other markets. We reviewed the Amazfit Bip S previously, which we gave an 80 and noted it did a whole lot well because of its price. The Amazfit series isn’t without its tradeoffs, but does appear to be a cheaper and useful option to other fitness trackers on the market.
