    Or instanced housing. One or the other with how a single guild can own 10 houses under their name.

    I don't understand what you're saying.

    Do you mean rip personals from people who have an fc house?

    Auto-demo has been back in effect for a while now. So the houses are being used by their owners.

    From what I’m seeing, wards are a lot more active than they used to be. I don’t think we need another purge as housing reclamation effectively keeps plots in the hands of those who want and will use them. What you’re asking for is for SE to forcefully take plots from those who have an excess, which has nothing to do with the original purge tbh. The purge was meant to correct a situation where players would buy houses and quit the game, turning wards into ghost towns and making an already limited resource even scarcer, and was actually a side effect of SE introducing the reclamation mechanic. It happened because so many timers ran out at once, not because SE took any plots away.

    No it wasn't. If wards were turned into a ghost town, people would buy those houses gladly once they were reclaimed. SE didn't change the rules regarding this, other than a freeze on reclamation due to natural disasters effecting a large number of players.

    The change in rules was regarding specifically the issue addressed, that each players can have one personal house, and that each FC can have one house, while supplies last. It specifically states that any attempts to skirt around these rules are also against the rules, which we can see here. Further changes are being made to make personal houses available for the entire account, further cementing that a personal house is for 1 player, and not for 1 character.

    Additional changes were so that FC housing would be reclaimed if the FC had not enough members to consider it legitimate. What we see however is that these FC's are made up of the same people with alternate characters. You only need 4 players to own 16 houses.

    What we see here is an obviously violation of the rules, and SE should crack down on it.

    I agree, a patch needs to work like this.

    The last house you where in before Date X will remain yours all other houses will be returned to the market. And you will be returned items and 50% of the house cost.
    With 30 days notice to release a your house and get items returned and 100% value of house resell cost.

    So what? Take someone's house because they choose to be apart of a small FC? It's one thing if that same person has multiple houses on their account between different characters, but another entirely if they just have a small FC with a few friends.

    They don't and that's not one FC, that's multiple FCs. Yes they're all likely to be the same group of people, but they're still individual FCs that they had to level each up to rank 6 to be able to buy a house. And since one person could only create a maximum of 8 characters on a world, for 10 alt FC houses there's definitely more than one account involved.

    I can see how it looks like it's a single FC, but if you look at each house "owner" you'll see a different FC. They just happen to all have the same "short name" because the game doesn't require that to be unique.
