As good of an idea this sounds I think that the selection process was a bit too elitist. From what I have seen mostly only very popular Youtube personalities were selected. The invites only went out to 100 of those that attended Minecon, or are admins of this forum. Doesn't leave much room for the "kid" down the block that plays. My other concern is how much of the Mojang personnel are being taken off Minecraft development for this.
Again my overall thought is this may be a very good idea for casual users, depending on the pricing, that want to build together and not pay tens of thousands of yen to do so.
If your invited you get the realms button but you can't make your own server just join ones you are invited to I looked it up on YouTube and not many big YouTube personalities were even invited especially not picked.
