Back in March, Final Fantasy XIV’s developers turned off the housing demolition timers due to the ongoing global pandemic, so no one has to worry about logging on to the game to make sure a house isn’t demolished. This is a good thing, and it’s not changing soon. Unfortunately, it also means that inactive houses are not currently subject to any churn, which means that getting a house is even more difficult than normal… a situation hopefully addressed, at least in part, with the promise of more housing plots being added in the game’s next major patch.provide more spaces to hang your metaphorical hat.
2. While we are very grateful for the increase in players due to the new updates, the housing demolition timer has remained disabled due to COVID-19. We are planning to add more plots soon, but due to the current situation, the installation process has been slowed down.
