    According to the recent gamertag changes I tried to change using the new system and received "Tag is not allowed". I would consider that the system has found something offensive in my pseudo and I would be ok with it, but I am able to claim the same tag with the old one, moreover I use no abuse words (or at least I don't know any context in which "vaillant" can be considered such one). Are there some changes to the validation logic? About a month ago I have reported this behaviour directly to the support, but don't see any changes or notifications on this field.

    As for user (btw programmer), it seems just a bit weird

    Gamer tag

    I received a forced Gamertag change. Can XBLPET let me choose a new Gamertag for free?
    Some rumors give the impression that XBLPET will provide a free Gamertag change to accounts that have received a forced Gamertag change. This is not the case.

    In the past, a forced Gamertag change gave users the opportunity to change the offending Gamertag free of charge. Unfortunately, this gesture was prone to abuse, and many people simply chose new, equally offensive Gamertags. As a result,
    the Gamertag enforcement process changed. A forced Gamertag change now automatically assigns a new Gamertag to the account, much in the same way a system-generated Gamertag is provided when you first sign up for Xbox Live.

    If a player is unhappy with the assigned Gamertag and wishes to change it, he or she may purchase a new Gamertag through the

    standard Gamertag change process
    .

    gamertag change

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid there are no free gamertag changes, if a gamertag was deemed to break the CoC/ToU then you will given a generated one and if you want to change the gamertag into something chosen by yourself it will have the fee like any gamertag change.

    See this link for the steps:
