Stupid gamertag system

I just created this account for Brink, because it needs this ....

So i went to change my gamertag (although I do like TougherKitten 2) i first checked availability for Mr Ellos, it was available then i tried Ellos it was unavailable, i switched back to Mr Ellos and it was also unavailable...?!?! so the availabilty check is severly bugged and thats probably the reason why you need to be so creative with names....

Please microsoft fix this and do a cross reference with all the accounts and "registered" names so you can free up A LOT of names


btw (on my other hotmail account i tried the same before this one and that is how i lost the name Ellos to the void... so i can say this is no accident)

The change Gamertag option isn't meant to "check" tags. If you put one it, it will put a very temporary hold on the name so someone doesn't sneak it away from you. You shouldn't use this option to check tags.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
