The sometimes confusing situation with glitches affecting the Final Fantasy XIV Housing Lottery has a new update and the Square Enix team is closer to fully understanding and resolving the issue. The patch notes for update 6.1, Newfound adventure have also been updated with some new recipes.
The housing lottery results have been a mixed bag for those who have bid on properties. Some players got the wrong message that the winning number was 0 and they didn’t win with a gil refund and others got a message that there were no applicants at all. While others have received news that they have won, along with winning numbers, and have the opportunity to complete their purchases.
During the investigation, the team found both a server-side and a processing issue behind the errors. Naoki Yoshida notes that the lottery ultimately worked as intended, but the results were not properly sent to players.
They concluded that those who received winning tickets and were able to buy land received the correct results. The team is trying to recover the lottery data so they have all the details as well as a final confirmation. They also investigate those who received a gil refund before learning they actually won the lottery. However, he encouraged players who have the opportunity to complete a purchase to do so.
To prevent further problems, they will work to restore the lottery data and they will suspend lotteries for all properties until further notice.
In a more pleasant update, the notes for Update 6.1 got longer with a whole host of new crafting recipes. New recipes include building materials, furnishings, clothing items, and portraits.
