Current limit of fleets of 0 have been reached.


When trying to create a new gamelift fleet, the following error occurs:

"An error occurred (LimitExceededException) when calling the CreateFleet operation (reached max retries: 2): Current limit of fleets of 0 have been reached."

This happens independently of instance type. On the service quota dashboard, the limit is 20. Does anyone have any idea on what could be causing this issue? We have been using gamelift for over a year and this is the first time anything like this has occurred.

  • 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?

  • The limit should not be the problem, it's set at the default which is 20. In fact, when I try to increase it, it asks me for a number bigger than 20.
