Free name change

I went to change my gamertag (which had not been changed) and I did not get the free change that you are meant to get I'm still using the original gamertag I was given.

The free name changes only apply if you originally accepted the gamertags they recommended to you. If you customised the gamertag in any way like adding numbers to the end or just choosing your own you do not get the free gamertag change.

Also I think the free change has to be taken within the first 30 days of opening your account

TBH I think it's absolutely shocking they charge for something as basic as a name change, doesn't cost them anything on their end and they make more than enough profit from everyone.

No it doesn't cost them really anything to do placebo, but without that cost for 1 it gives people more ways to be annoying on live and get away with it. This is the same as with most mmo's for example that offer a name change

It's greed pure and simple, most people would need to only change the name of their gamertag once or twice so the first two or three should be free, hardly annoying if someone on your Live changes their name two or three times...

There is some people out there who love to constantly annoy the hell out of other gamers but threatening them with DDoS attacks, cheating and modding.

If cheaters could change their tag at will it would make it harder for others to file complaints against them because they wont be able to find the culprits on their recent player list due to their tag being changed.

Changing gamertags should stay at 800 points
