    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

    But if your xbox account name is the same as your name in the server, you don't have to add new friend request right?

    I feel so uncertain about this so called "Better together update"
    If I am unable to create an Xbox live account and stuff, I'll either do my best to get it done or farewell BL. I don't want to do that, not yet.

    Basically, once this update is realeased you can't play on servers unless you're logged into an Xbox Live account. The problem is, a lot of usernames are taken, so the staff are trying to figure out how to make us not lose our stats

    The only good thing about this update is that it'll give you more privacy and people won't be able to steal your account. However, many people have the same name ideas and somebody registered BlueWillow before me so I had to change mine. So, technically I'm stealing their account by accident :0. Also, since you can only go online with one account, once you are banned, you're done for (unless you have multiple email addresses and can somehow get rid of your banned account). Since most hackers use boring old toolbox or some kind of app, it would greatly reduce the amount of people bypassing. If they ACTUALLY knew how to hack, they could encrypt data, change IP addresses, and even delete the ban file. However, again most hackers are noobs who use toolbox.

    EDIT: Also another reason for this update might be because many games and websites are being dominated by kids. (YouTube, Minecraft, Cringey Fnaf kids, etc) so they are doing this to make Minecraft more "Kid friendly". (Hence the child acount). This will make MC extremely secure and easy to ban people. Microsoft is also monetizing MC as much as possible (skins, realms, worlds) so the people who can't make their own (most likely kids) will have their parents pay. Idk if this is a good reason but it's been happening frequently to many other communities. The Xbox thing very stressful to newer players and you have to create an ultra-unique account like "DungeonMasterTacoSupreme" in order to play.
