    Hello everyone and thanks for reading this.​

    This thread will try to help me to help you to understand what is changing within the next update {1.2} also known as the "Better Together" update. The first thing that you may already know is that you will all have to create an Xbox account to access all servers on Minecraft Console, PE and Windows 10 edition. This will mean that you can no longer choose any username you want on our server and will have to stick to ONE username.

    We have been speaking with @vertx about this and the fact that this update might confuse and frustrate a lot of players but we are hoping to transfer into the new update as smoothly as possible. Players can use the new /switch command to access their BrokenLens account from their Xbox account.

    This will be taking effect on All servers throughout MCPE & Windows 10 edition and many other servers might be reacting differently to this. The update is also going to be adding many new blocks as well as more features in the pause menu which we will have to try work a way around. This might mean that BrokenLens may or may not be ready for the 1.2 update but don't forget that vertx is only one guy and he codes almost the entire server.

    From what we know the update is close to release and depending when it is released will depend if the server is ready to upgrade. If the update releases next week we are almost certain that BrokenLens will not be ready to update.

    More information can be found on the Official Minecraft website in the link below.

    Thanks for your understanding

    Ok let's sum this up.

    Better together means you will need an Xbox live account to join and lots of usernames are already taken or are different from the ones you use.

    Vertx is looking for a good solution and right now that's all the info we have.

    Don't become confused/frustrated it will probably work out fine.

    (And this friends is why ihavenolife writes important stuff)

    Are you being sarcastic about ihavenolife writing important stuff? I'm pretty sure he makes a LOT of simple grammar mistakes.

    Well, we trust you guys. Plus, we can't be mad at you guys, for you did nothing wrong. Most of us are just mad at Microsoft (plan on making a rant video about it)

    So many people are going to have to change their names. I'm lucky because my IGN is my Xbox Live account name, I just need to sign in. Microsoft has got to be the stupidest company ever lmao.

    Okay, I really hate Microsoft, lol. We have to add a friend request for new Xbox Live accounts, as they don't have forum friends or server friends. I hope that the update should be fine, as in the additional information will be news in minecraft pe, if they add it. Also, last minutes ago I tried to log into the new Xbox account today, because I noticed that my username is already taken by me, because I don't have an old email account anymore. However, I can always access the name of my account is called GeorgeBRLNS to log on to the server, so you can add me a friend request. Why? Because I'm so alone on the server.

    I think you can join any servers with your Xbox Live account and can no longer change your username, but only once.
