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.

    Emilia Clarke-penned comic M.O.M.: Mother of Madness revealed

    As though the four-time Emmy nominee joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Disney+’s  Secret Invasion  series enough weren’t, Emilia Clarke is expanding her comic book resume as Entertainment Weekly has revealed a fresh comic book,  M.O.M.: Mother of Madness , co-authored by the  Game of Thrones  alum!

    Co-written by Clarke and writer Marguerite Bennett, the three-issue Image Comics miniseries centers around Maya, an individual mom who learns she possesses incredible superpowers and decides to utilize them to defend myself against a secret cabal of human traffickers.

    We’re calling mothers superheroes, and I’m like, ‘What should they were? Imagine if these were superheroes legitimately? ‘” Clarke said. “ Maya has already established an extremely hard life, and she finds herself in a accepted place where precisely what makes her unique, she hates and is ashamed about. It’s only in the discovery of her powers that she actually is found by her true acceptance of who she actually is.

    The 34-year-old actress describes the tone of the comic much like Rob Liefeld’s iconic Merc with a Mouth,  Deadpool , with a “ large amount of silliness ” and tongue-in-cheek humor that also explores the existing feminist sensibility in “ an extreme genre-bending atmosphere ,” though she actually is keeping mum on the precise powers of her titular hero.

    There’s many, a lot of things that she can perform which are cool pretty. She can perform plenty of stuff at certain moments in her month ,” Clarke said with fun. “ She can perform most of these wicked things, however they all result from the known proven fact that she is a female who includes a menstrual cycle. I thought it will be cool to possess all of the plain items that women don’t like about themselves, flip that, and make those things that make her superhuman .”

    In a need to further expand the feminine voice in the comics world, Clarke put an all-female creative team with co-writer Bennett together, illustrator Leila Leiz, contributor Isobel Richardson and cover artist Jo Ratcliffe, while also designing the mask of Maya’s costume to be like the iconic balaclavas of Russian protest punk group Pussy Riot.
