Bad news for those that there were hoping for more Realms slots to open.
Amir Moulav, Realms Lead Developer, was asked today on Twitter, “When are the next server slots going to be out?” Amir responded with, “Not until we fix our current bugs. Maybe in a month or so..”
I’m sure everyone was hoping to be running their own MCPE Realms server by now but, unfortunately, it looks like it’s going to be a slower process than expected. The good news is that there may be more slots opening Friday. Minecraft Pocket Edition developer,Johan Bernhardsson, tweeted, “Parts of the Realms team are out of the office for a couple of days so we will see how the Realms test have gone on Friday.”
From Johan Bernhardsson: “Ehm, ok so the Realms team just opened up few server slots and they where gone extremly quick. Lets see how these work out.”
Good news! Johan Bernhardsson, Minecraft Pocket Edition developer, tweeted this earlier today: “Making some fixes to Realms and then hopefully we can start to open up a few slots. We will build up slow.”
Two days after the release of 0.7.0, we now have the release of Minecraft PE 0.7.1. Just a lot of bug fixes here so make sure you update your game. One nice feature is that there’s actually a notice telling you if there are no available Realms server slots. That’s quite a bit more helpful than the previous blank screen with no information.
