    Gamertag change tool confusing tag without suffix


    Okay, long story short, I had an old gamertag that I wanted to move over to a newer microsoft account and now the gamertag tool is confused.

    Old account: renamed to OG (said would now be available).

    New account: #5311 trying to rename to

    When I go to try and change the gamertag it now tells me:

    "You already own that gamertag, if you’re happy with it you don’t need to make any changes."



    The only way I see out of this is paying for 2 consecutive name changes, support said they couldn't help. It seems like the name change tool doesn't realize the clean tag is different than the one with the suffix...

    :)

    New Gamer tag System

    The only way to have the tag without the suffix is to change it to a tag that nobody else has.

    Is there a way to get my old gamertag back or fix it for free?

    The only way to fix it would be to change it again which would involve paying again. There is no way to get another free change. If the system still sees your old gamertag as being in use or someone else has already taken it, you will be given the suffix
    again. The only way to have a gamertag without the suffix is to pick a tag that no one else has.

    May I get the # suffix added to my gamertag removed or a way to change my GT?

    The suffix is added because someone else already has the tag. The only way to have a tag without the suffix is to choose a tag that nobody else has. You would have to pay if you want to change it again.

    New Gamertag System Suffix Issues

    Yeah, With the changes to how gamertag change works, we can actually claim used gamertags now but when we use that tag, a suffix will be added next to the account tag to make it unique and so that your friends will be able to differentiate you from
    the one who got the tag before you. But take note that suffix would be blurry on your friend's end.
