Final Fantasy XIV housing lottery is finally set

Final Fantasy XIV’s house draw is finally set a month after it was broken.

April 16, FFXIV maintenance renew Indicates that the latest housing draw cycle in the game has been broken, so when looking at the placard to show the winner, the placard says there is no winner. This means that no one can get the house. polygon Reports say the issue was fixed yesterday and winning numbers will now be displayed correctly and land purchases may be completed accordingly.

“As I mentioned in a previous update, we will be performing maintenance to restore lottery results data on Monday, May 16,” FFXIV producer and director Naoki Yoshida said in the new renew. “This maintenance will fix identified bugs and correctly forward draw results for affected parcels to the appropriate server.”

Due to this maintenance fix:

  • Winning lottery numbers will be displayed correctly and land purchases may be completed accordingly.
  • The temporary suspension on land purchases and relocations will be lifted.

If you have a winning number, Yoshida said, you should complete 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 your current winning land lottery. The next one will start on May 26, with a typical 5-day entry period and 4-day results period.

If you are a winning participant and have received a gil refund due to a recent lottery outage, you can still complete your purchase on the winning land. Even if you find out that you have won the lottery after receiving your refund, you will still be considered a winning lottery player.

“In patch 6.2, we plan to implement an NPC through which you can voluntarily refund accidentally refunded deposits,” wrote Yoshida. “As these housing lottery issues are so severe and cause a lot of stress and frustration for many players, we have no intention of performing a data rollback to forcibly revoke any refunded gills. We will discuss housing issues as soon as the relevant NPC is ready to implement them. The voluntary refund of the deposit will be announced.

“Finally, I would like to thank you all again for your patience and understanding over the past month and express my deepest apologies for the trouble and inconvenience these issues have caused. We will do our best to restore your data safely, resolve any remaining issues, and provide You provide a fair and functional housing lottery system. Thank you for your continued support.”
