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.

    iPhone 12 mini 'production cut' hints demand was less than hoped

    Apple is slashing production of the iPhone 12 mini through the initial half a year of the entire year, in accordance with Nikkei . The ongoing company will reportedly produce at the very least 70 percent fewer units than it initially planned. That will take into account the majority of a 20 percent drop in overall planned iPhone 12 production until June.

    Apple is even thought to have told some suppliers to temporarily stop making specific parts for the iPhone 12 mini. Various other components have already been reapportioned for the iPhone 12 iPhone and Pro 12 Pro Max.

    with the cuts

    Even, This season than it did in 2020 apple continues to be on track to create more iPhones. Nikkei suggests the business plans to manufacture 75 million units in the initial half a year and 230 million handsets altogether, representing a standard increase of 11.6 percent. That is reportedly to greatly help Apple get before possible parts shortages along with possible economic recovery (and much more people perhaps having enough spare cash to get a fresh phone).

    The report backs up previous suggestions that the 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini isn’t selling all that well. A year over the age of the 2020 lineup even though iPhone 11 is, it provides superior battery life to the iPhone 12 mini also it costs $100 less. That, aligned with the known fact lots of people are deciding on phones with larger screens, could possibly be one reason the iPhone 12 mini seemingly isn’t selling just as much as Apple could have hoped.
