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.

    John Cena & Idris Elba Reteaming for Head of State at Amazon Studios

    John Cena & Idris Elba reteaming for Head of State at Amazon Studios As audiences await to see the duo team up for James Gunn’s highly-anticipated The Suicide Squad, John Cena (F9) and Idris Elba (Hobbs & Shaw) have already set their next project with the action project Head of State, which has just been acquired by Amazon Studios, according to Deadline. RELATED: Peacemaker: The Suicide Squad Spinoff Series Coming to HBO Max! While plot details are currently being kept under wraps for the project, it’s being described as a being akin to the “two-hander, high-octane” action movies of the ’90s such as Air Force One and even Elba’s Fast and Furious spin-off, pairing “an odd couple in a high-stakes situation.” The duo pitched the project to Amazon Studios over Zoom alongside screenwriter Harrison Query (My Wife & I Bought a Ranch) and producers Peter Safran and John Rickard of The Safran Company, with the actors currently finalizing their deals in a reported six-to-seven figure deal for Query. The group were reportedly halted during their presentation as the studio wanted to quickly grab the project before they could pitch it to other studios. Following the conclusion of shooting on Gunn’s DC Extended Universe sequel, of which he was also a producer, Safran noticed a real chemistry between Cena and Elba and began working with the two to capitalize on their momentum and find a vehicle for them to lead together.
