      The Final Fantasy XIV Hairstyle Design contest was held for A Realm Reborn’s 10th anniversary, and it has been filled with lots of wonderful art from players all around the world. In fact, the Final Fantasy team has been so amazed by all the innovative hairstyles, that they increased the number of winning entries from 30 to 40 players. 
      Here are some of the winning entries:

      If you wish to see all 40 winning entries, you can check out the official announcement.
      One of the winning entries might be chosen by Square Enix to be added to the game in a future update. However, this is not guaranteed. Also, your entry might still have a chance to be selected even if you are not among the 40 winners. But please note that the development team might need to modify the hairstyle design to make it suitable for all the characters in the game.
      The 40 winners will be rewarded with Fat Cat Earrings during November 2023. The prize will be sent through Moogle post in game, on the character selected during the submission process.

      Congratulations to the 40 winners of the Final Fantasy XIV Hairstyle Contest! And of course, to all the participants as well! The Hairstyle creations are amazing, and we hope to see some of them in the game soon!

      Don’t miss this chance to upgrade your game to the collector’s editions of each expansion and get exclusive in-game items such as mounts, weapons, and more. The sale ends on December 8, 2023.
      Final Fantasy XIV fans can now enjoy the collector’s editions of each expansion for a 50%-discount. The editions include exclusive in-game items such as weapons, minions, mounts, and more. 
      The sale is available since Friday, 24 November 2023 until Friday, 8 December 2023 at 7:00 (GMT) / 18:00 (AEDT).
      Upgrading your game’s version to the collector’s edition is a way for you to enjoy unique and rare items that are only available through this option. For example, the "Endwalker" collector’s edition includes a majestic paladin mount and a Death Scythe weapon for the Reaper job, while the "A Realm Reborn" edition includes the famous Fat Chocobo.

      You can either purchase the bundle or a specific expansion to upgrade to the collector’s edition, if you only want to get some of the items.
      However, please note that if you already have one of the digital collector’s editions on your service account, you cannot access the bundle purchase, and you have to upgrade each expansion individually.
      To upgrade to the collector’s edition, visit the Final Fantasy XIV: Mog Station, and select the option to upgrade.

      Then, select the bundle or the specific expansion you want to upgrade to the collector edition, and proceed to check-out. Afterward, you will receive a confirmation email, and the collector edition will appear on your service account. It may take some time to receive the items in-game.
      Be aware that this does not including the game expansion. This system is only available for players who already bought the game and the expansions, and simply wish to upgrade their normal versions to the collector editions.
      The Mog Station digital upgrade system is the only way for you to get the items if you already have the game, so don’t miss out on this chance to get them for a very low price.

      Participate in the upcoming Cloud Data Center Stress Test from 21 to 28 November and assist the Final Fantasy Team in expanding their server infrastructure.
      To cope with the increasing demand for server capacity, Square Enix is working on creating a cloud data center solution that would allow players to access the game from anywhere in the world.
      A cloud data center is a virtual server structure that is hosted on the internet, rather than on physical hardware. This means that anyone can connect to the game without being limited by their real life location. Cloud data centers also offer potential improvements to the game’s performance and stability.
      In order to test how the server will do in a public service environment, players will be able to participate in the Cloud Data Center Stress Test, and give their feedback to the FFXIV team. The test will run from Tuesday, 21 November, to Tuesday, 28 November. For now, the server is located in North America (East Coast), but players from all over the world can participate. Keep in mind, though, that you might experience latency if you are not located in North America. 
      In order to participate, you must create a new character on the Cloud Data Center. The Data Center selection screen can be accessed from the title screen, where you will have to choose the NA Cloud DC (Beta) - CloudTest01 or CloudTest02, and then create a character to start the game!

      Characters created on this server will receive 50 million Gil, as well as a copy of Tales Of Adventures: Shadowbringers, and Tales of Adventure III (level 80), for each job to instantly access as many in-game features as possible. You will be able to explore every content existing in the game, there are no limits!
      Keep in mind, that all characters created on this Cloud Server, will be deleted when the test ends. 
      If you have any feedback regarding the stress test, you can post on the official forum threads.
      For further details, please head over to the official information post.
      The Cloud Data Center Stress test is a unique opportunity for players to experience the game in a different way, and to contribute to the improvement of the server infrastructure. By participating in the test, players will help Square Enix evaluate the feasibility and performance of the cloud data center solution, which could potentially enhance the game’s quality and accessibility for players around the world.
      The test is open to everyone, regardless of region or platform. So don’t miss this chance to join the test and have fun with the FFXIV community!
