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.

    Saudi Arabia partially opens International Flights from Tuesday

    Saudi Arabia from Tuesday will partially lift its suspension of International Flights said the interior ministry. The partial suspension comes after the country was closed since the lockdown was started 6 months back. “The kingdom will end all restrictions on air, land and sea transport for Saudi citizens after January 1 next year,” said the minister also the exact date will be announced in coming months. Gulf Citizens and Non-Saudi residents will be allowed entry to Saudi, but they should hold a valid residency permit or visa and they should not be infected with the virus, said the minister in the statement provided to the press agency. Also, from Tuesday people in other exceptional categories such as Saudi government and military employees, embassy workers, students and people requiring medical treatment will also be allowed to enter Saudi. Saudi Arabia will gradually announce the plan to allow the umrah pilgrimage. However, the first umrah was suspended this year in March as the kingdom went into lockdown due to Coronavirus pandemic. Also, the kingdom had scaled down hajj pilgrimage where only 10,000 people had visited the annual pilgrimage which is far less than compared to last year where over 2.5 million people had attended the annual hajj pilgrimage. Saudi Arabia had suspended all international borders and flights in the month of March due to the wake of coronavirus and which left many citizens and residents stranded overseas. Due to coronavirus, the kingdom of Saudi had over 325,000 cases with over 4,200 deaths. However, recently the kingdom is seeing fewer cases and has the highest recoveries surpassing 302,000. And in June, this year the kingdom lifted restrictions of business and curfew where cinemas and other entertainment venues were opened. Add to Bookmarks
