The automatic demolition of estates on the Elemental, Gaia, and Mana data centres was suspended in September 2019. However, after careful consideration, we have decided to resume auto-demolition with the release of patch 5.15.
* There is a possibility the timer will be suspended again at a later date should the need arise.
Scheduled Release Date for Patch 5.15
* The exact date and time of maintenance coinciding with the patch release will be announced at a later time.
Auto-Demolition Counter and Current Estate Owners
The counter for auto-demolition may be reset for certain estates depending on the usage of housing during the period when the auto-demolition was suspended. If an estate hasn’t been built on the plot, the counter may be reset upon entering the estate once it has been built.
- For players who have entered their estate at least once during the suspension period:
The auto-demolition timer will be reset for free company estates that have been entered by a leader or member at least once, and private estates that have been entered by the owner at least once.
The count for days of inactivity for the aforementioned estates will begin again with the release of patch 5.15.
- For players who have not entered their estate during the suspension period:
The auto-demolition timer will resume from the time that was remaining as of Friday, 13 September, 2019 at 12:21 (GMT) / 13:21 (BST).
Please be advised that the timer will resume immediately after patch data is made available for download during the scheduled maintenance for patch 5.15. Because of this, there is a possibility the auto-demolition timer may expire for certain estates before maintenance has ended. An e-mail notification will be delivered to the e-mail address registered to the Square Enix accounts of those players whose estates will be prepared for auto-demolition within ten days of the scheduled maintenance. We strongly suggest those players log in and enter their estate before the scheduled maintenance for patch 5.15.
* The e-mail notification will be delivered to the registered e-mail addresses of all free company estate owners and their free company members, as well as private estate owners.
Confirming Time Until Auto-Demolition
For players who have not entered their estates for at least thirty days, the status under the Estate tab of the Timers window will indicate the estate is being prepared for auto-demolition and denote the number of days remaining. This status will no longer be displayed upon entering the estate.
* Please be advised that this window will only display the number of days until auto-demolition and not an exact time. We strongly urge you to enter your estate well before the scheduled day for auto-demolition.
