Amazon GameLift: "Error! Cannot create the fleet. Reason: Current limit of fleets of 0 have been reached.."



Whenever I attempt to create a new fleet, I get this error:

Error! Cannot create the fleet. Reason: Current limit of fleets of 0 have been reached..

Was working fine last week, and I have no fleets currently running.

Any ideas?

  • I've had the same problem for two days. I contacted support and I'm still waiting for a response.

  • @GK Thanks for the suggestion, though the problem is I can't make a single fleet, even though none are active. That link would be useful if I wanted to increase the starting limit from 20.

  • Hello! We are facing the same problem. AWS Support Team keeps sending the boilerplate answer, and it is not helpful at all... Did you manage to solve this issue?
