    The update 4.1 to Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood introduced new player housing in the scenic, Far Eastern-themed district of Shirogane. The Servers went on the web at 6 am and place 720 new housing plots on the market. The choicest areas had been gone ahead of many players could even clear the login queue. In order to get one particular from the new housing plots, players have to be rapidly. Grabbing one requires creating their way as soon as possible towards the area their preferred plot islocated in and staking a claim ahead of anybody else. A beneficial tip circulating for players hoping to score a dwelling this morning requires setting their character to busy, so other players can not try to interrupt the buy FFXIV Gil by opening a trading window. This can be a cutthroat game that is more than within a flash. The login queues didn't enable. For any common MMO, the launch of a brand new update is a busy period, and the 4.1 "The Legend Returns" update is quite substantial. According to the reports gathered in game and in the Final Fantasy XIV forums, several players who were prepared for today's land rush found them stuck in login queues, their hopes of a brand new home ticking away with every passing minute. The housing system of Final Fantasy XIV is notoriously terrible. Where other games allow players to carve out a private space for themselves or their guilds as they see match, Square Enix's MMOs will maintain accessible housing restricted. Untill today's patch, there are actually 3 housing places in every server. Every single housing area has 12 wards, with 60 plots of various size in every. For players and free businesses (guilds), that's 2,160 spots. This isn't a whole lot of space when taking into account players who prefer to horde housing or totally free organizations attempting to purchase up plots en masse. Adding 720 far more plots per server does not aid a great deal, in particular after they are fresh and new and oh-so-pretty. The forums and Reddit are filled with nightmare stories about today's chaotic land grab. This really is the worst part of an incredibly superior patch. This can be the whole experience. Players are talking about canceling their accounts. My free of charge enterprise leader mentioned that someone the Shirogane area's name be changed to "Shiogane" ("shio" is Japanese for salt.) To be certain, it is a rough system. And it has been very rough for many years. When housing was introduced in Final Fantasy XIV(Final Fantasy XIV Gil) back in 2011, I was excited regarding the notion of owning my own little property and decorating it having a range of virtual FF things. Then I saw the exorbitant rates for player houses and the reasonably slim possibility of actually getting a single, and I gave up. I'm a bold adventurer. I've conquered gods, demons and kings and averted world-ending catastrophe on numerous occasions. My house is wherever my sword or fishing rod requires me. Seriously say, please repair this, Square Enix. I'm fine with something. Construct us a Final Fantasy-flavored slum and i'll reside under a box, as long as I do not need to fight for it.
