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.

    The Rock Gives Tiny Glimpse of His Black Adam Costume

    Black Adam

    Fans have already been anxiously awaiting more info regarding DC’s upcoming Black Adam film, and in a recently available Instagram post, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gave fans an exceptionally tiny glimpse at things.

    In a recently available post, Johnson shared a number of photos of himself in a board meeting for Zoa Energy. In the bottom of the post, though, Johnson teased that fans with an enthusiastic eye would spot he was actually wearing his Black Adam costume through the meeting, albeit covered up in a black cloak. As Johnson is shooting the film currently, he’s surely got to stay static in costume during any meetings beyond that.  

    “If you swipe left and zoom in, you’ll visit a small little bit of my gold Black Adam [costume] peeking from under my black cloak of secrecy (my weekly board meetings all happen within my 30min breaks from shooting Black Adam ),” wrote Johnson.

    The photo itself (that you can see below) isn’t an excessive amount of a look, however. Fans can just spot some gold from Black Adam’s iconic golden lightning bolt protruding near the the surface of the costume. For a far more in-depth look, fans should be patient as filming wraps and much more is released up.  

    Black Adam  will undoubtedly be led by Dwayne Johnson, who has been mounted on play the titular anti-hero for over ten years now. It will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra ( The Shallows ), who caused Johnson on Disney’s upcoming  Jungle Cruise , from the screenplay compiled by Rory Sohrab and Haines Noshiryani.

    The film shall also feature the live-action film introduction of the Justice Society of America, whose members will undoubtedly be portrayed by Pierce Brosnan ( The Foreigner ) as Doctor Fate, Noah Centineo ( TO ALL OR ANY The Boys I’ve Loved Before ) as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell ( Trinkets ) as Cyclone and Aldis Hodge ( One Night in Miami ) as Hawkman. The film may also feature Sarah Shahi ( City on a Hill ), Marwan Kenzari ( Aladdin ) and Bodhi Sabongui ( Legends of Tomorrow ) though their roles are being kept under wraps for the present time.
