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.

    EA Sports UFC 4 Adds Two New Simplified and Fighters Control Options

    EA Sports UFC 4 has announced the contents of its huge 3.0 patch, which adds two new fighters, menu options, gameplay changes, and a fresh control scheme.

    The most noteworthy additions arriving in this patch can be found in the proper execution of two fan-favorite fighters: Calvin Kattar and Pedro Munhoz. The update comes significantly less than 24 hours when i published my wishlist of 10 fighters I needed to see put into the EA Sports UFC 4 roster. The list, that you can here read, included both Munhoz and Kattar, which means you know I’m glad to see both of these deserving fighters increasing the roster.

    On the surface of the roster additions, various existing fighters have already been put into new divisions, including Jon Jones’ highly anticipated go on to heavyweight. Other updates are the ability to decide on a venue when fighting with a detailed friend online, a fresh “Learn” category to greatly help newcomers master the controls, and different fixes including ground-and-pound balance updates, stamina tweaking, and slipping being given an important buff. This update also addresses clinch spam by tweaking the stamina drain when exiting or entering the clinch, along with updates to the submission game.

    For those that don’t necessarily have time and energy to obtain friends up to date on how best to play the overall game, Custom Fight Now supplies a new control scheme called “Simplified Controls,” which enables you to pick up the overall game and strike without knowing all of the inputs competently. This option, which may be toggled for every fighter individually, boils striking to the standard controls down, with the overall game helping decide which strike to throw next in line with the situation.

    Alongside this update, the team at EA Sports released a hype trailer for the massive headlining fight because of this weekend’s pay-per-view. You can view the in-game trailer for Israel Adesanya vs. Paulo Costa below.
