FFXIV Producer and Director Yoshi-P here.
With the release of FFXIV: Stormblood, we took measures intended to address the population disparity across Worlds. With Patch 4.2, we then placed a temporary moratorium on all plot sales to individuals. We thank you for your understanding regarding the necessity of these restrictions.
Based on our analysis of login numbers and plot sales across all Worlds in the weeks following the release of 4.2, we have decided to implement the following changes during the next scheduled maintenance:
- Restrictions on all currently designated Congested Worlds will be lifted.
- New Preferred Worlds will be designated.
- The moratorium on plot sales to individuals will be lifted.
The prolonged restrictions placed on Congested Worlds, while greatly inconvenient for those affected, have nevertheless proven effective in ensuring a more balanced population distribution across all Worlds. Now that that balance has been achieved, we will be removing these restrictions for a time.
Moreover, in the hopes of preserving this population distribution, we will continue to designate Preferred Worlds in order to spur population growth.
Please understand, however, that should we determine certain Worlds are receiving a disproportionate influx of new characters via transfer or creation, we may have no choice but to designate them Congested Worlds and implement restrictions.
The moratorium placed on private plot sales in conjunction with the addition of new plots has, as we anticipated, allowed a great many free companies to purchase plots and reduce the overall disparity between them. In light of these results, we plan to lift the moratorium on private sales and permit individuals to purchase plots once more.
As previously announced, private plot sales will be restricted to one plot per World on any given service account. For more information, please refer to our additional plots and purchasing guide.
Date & Time: February 19th, 11:00 PM to February 20th, 2:00 AM (PST)
* Please note that the duration is subject to change.
We thank you again for your cooperation and understanding, and hope you will continue to enjoy your time in the world of FINAL FANTASY XIV!

Sicycre here to give you the latest scoop on the FINAL FANTASY XIV: Full Active Time Event that was held on February 10th in Sapporo, Japan!
Starting things off, here we have the team in Hokkaido, the day before the event, to check out what was to come during the Sapporo Snow Festival!
As mentioned in our last blog article, we were all in awe due to the size and overall impact of the sculpture. After spending some time with the sculpture, it was time to get the ball rolling!
The team split into two groups.
One team handled the signing session for Yoshi-P's new book, the second compilation of "YOSHIDA UNCENSORED."
The second team headed over to the venue that will be used for live FATE event for preparations.
First, let's take a look at the signing session held at the HMV Sapporo Stellar Place.
Warriors of Light in attendance filled every ilm of the store to get Yoshi-P's autograph.
We thank you all so much for attending this signing session! /bow
Soon after, Yoshi-P and co. headed over to the event area to rehearse for the Letter from the Producer LIVE for the following day.
Once the rehearsal and other preparations were completed, the team revisited the Snow Festival venue during the night to get a look at the projection mapping that takes place at night.
Yoshi-P was checking out the sculpture from a distance, like a father watching over his child.
The following day, the live Sapporo FATE event had finally begun!
At the event, they held a lot of activities for players to participate in.
They held a speed running challenge inside the Wanderer's Palace.
I could imagine the pressure was on during those times when a giant Tonberry would be chasing you.
Also, there was an area where the attendees could draw their very own Namazu and post it up on a designated board!
They also had some origami paper ready in case attendees wanted to fold together their very own carbuncle!
If that wasn't enough, there was even a battle challenge where players could go up against Lakshmi and Susano Extreme~!!
When a team emerged victoriously, their cheers echoed throughout the entire hall!
Once all the floor activities and merchandise sales concluded, it was finally time for the Letter from the Producer LIVE XLII.
During the show, we revealed some new information regarding the Forbidden Land of Eureka, answered some questions related to Patch 4.2, announced the PRIMALS live tour in Japan as well as an orchestra concert in Los Angeles and Dortmund.
Click here for more details on the orchestra concert.
We hope that everyone in attendance for the Sapporo FATE live event had a great time.
Thanks to everyone in Sapporo and all the Warriors of Light who traveled from afar for this event!
