They should make it so that minecraft realms is free so that people who are barely thinking about buying the wonderful gamme of minecraft be more convinced and being able to play with thier friends, no? Isnt that what minecrafts all about?
You might be confusing Minecraft Realms and a MInecraft account. Realms is only a server-hosting service; an account is what actually lets you play on servers in the first place. And, by the looks of it, neither Realms or accounts are going to be free anytime in the forseeable future.
