    Here's a thought...

    Be the change you want to see.

    If you guys are really this worried about it, then offer your own help in acquiring a new house in game for those you find to be affected.

    Y'know, putting your money where your mouth is and all.

    Nobody has given an "or else" so this isn't a demand. I have seen arguments for "well japan had...so we should" .
    This isn't what I support. I'm suggesting a little thing that would make people's return to FFXIV once things have settled down just a tiny bit nicer.


    and who in the world , in the middle of recovering from a disaster stops and thinks.. "hey, I should ask my friend to go login to the forums and post a request so my house doesn't get demo'd". The people aren't requesting anything because that would be (weirdly) a little selfish, and as has been said many times before, it's not a pressing concern in their lives right now. Nobody is implying they are thinking of this right now. Nobody expects them to be thinking of this right now. We are requesting, on the behalf of those who definitely have more pressing concerns on their minds.



    TLR for every single response I've made in this thread : "It'd be nice if we'd do this for these people".

    I totally agree though with you on the matter. "It'd be nice. The end." The problem with the request then comes with the people seeing this as unfair treatment. That's Guilt-tripping 101 tactics.

    It's a slippery slope on the matter. They arguably shouldn't have even bothered with Japan's situation if there's any concern of "fairness" when it comes to natural disaster. This sort of thing happens every single year, albeit uncommonly hitting disaster levels. It's nice to do these things, but you'll then get people who are looking for some good gesture by you, only for you to then be obligated (i.e. forced to) comply... then another person does the same thing shortly after, then again, and again, and again, etc. Failure to do so essentially resulting in what was (unintentionally) setup to result in a smear campaign. Thankfully, these sorts of posts don't get noticed or taken too seriously by large numbers of people, but it is obviously a point of argument people are actively using. It should never have to come to that on these matters, which is why I'd almost rather they don't do it.

    Also asking to delay the new housing zone for everyone in light of this, yeah I am sure that will end well for SE, I mean they would get zero push back. Best idea NA!
    Since this argument keeps being repeated: you obviously won't care while the issue is happening, but weeks or months later your life will go back to what it was, including hobbies, including this game, and it would be nice if your house was still there.

    I would still not care. More like : Ow well lost my house , will wait for my next chance. But hy I just have a small house so np ! If you have a medium or large one it will be different. It's a game and not your second life.

    Auto demo off and Shirogane delay would be fine *grin*. But I think 99% of the people only want the auto demo off. You know for themse.. i mean the victims.

    FFXIV Producer and Director Yoshi-P here.

    It warms our hearts to see such an outpouring of support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey and Irma in recent days. The thoughts and prayers of all of us on the FFXIV development and operations teams are with the people of Texas, Florida, the Caribbean, and the other areas affected by these terrible storms.

    Many of you have requested that we suspend estate auto-demolition, as players in these regions may have difficulty logging in at this time. The team understands this, and so we have decided to suspend auto-demolition temporarily.

    Commencement of Auto-Demolition Grace Period: September 15, 2017
    Duration: 14 days (tentative)


    At the end of this two week period, we will determine whether or not it is necessary to extend the grace period, and inform you all of our decision.

    Furthermore, as more detailed information regarding the situation on the ground in these regions becomes available, we will continue to discuss internally what other ways we may be able to ease the burden on those affected.

    We pray that the recovery efforts go smoothly, and that those of you who were affected will be able to join us again in Eorzea soon.

    ----------

    FFXIVプロデューサー兼ディレクターの吉田です。

    先月下旬、北米にて発生したハリケーン・ハービー、そしてそれに続くハリケーン・イルマに関して、被災された方を心配する声や励ましなど、多数のコメントありがとうございます。また、アメリカ南部を中心に大きな被害をもたらしている、これらのハリケーンによって被災されたみなさまに、FFXIV開発/運営チーム一同より、心からのお見舞いを申し上げます。

    お寄せいただいたコメントにて、ハウジング自動撤去カウンターの停止に関するご提案などを拝見しました。被災されたみなさんは、ログインすら非常に厳しい状態にあると思われます。FFXIVチームでもこの状況を重く受け止め、以下の通りハウジング自動撤去カウンターを一時的に停止することを決定いたしましたので、お知らせさせていただきます。

    停止日時:9月15日に実施予定のメンテナスで停止
    停止期間:暫定で約2週間


    停止期間に関しては、2週間後に改めて状況を確認の上、カウンターの停止継続または再開を検討の上アナウンスいたします。

    また、より詳しい被害の状況が判明し、我々から更なる支援の必要がある場合には、上記以外にも対応を検討させていただくつもりです。

    被災地の一刻も早い復興と、被災された方々とまたFFXIVで再会できることをお祈りしています。
