On the day this video was recorded it was changed so you are randomly assigned a kit. To choose the kit you want or select a boost you need to do the same laborious tasks.
In this videos I give my opinions on servers on the bedrock engine version of Minecraft with a focus on the Lifeboat Network. This server seems to be the worst of 3 officially partnered servers. My point is that this server is a representation of Microsofts quality control rather than condemning the monetization on all bedrock servers.
