    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

    Your account will be kept but you will need to create an Xbox account the same as your gamertag.

    You can use a space instead of underscores. My gamertag is ihavenolife DutchAD but on BrokenLens it shows as Hazard_DutchAD

    OK ok this is how I see it correct me if I'm wrong

    You need to make a xbox accout
    With the same name as ur User that u have now
    Quickly as possible before anyone steals it or just makes it
    So you can keep you lvl /stuff and u wont have to start over
    ._.

    Hmm..
    So anyone will have to login to x-box live and cant change there name anymore.
    This could be a very good change because it would mean that hackers couldnt change their name anymore to bypass a ban.Think about it..
