    Gamertag Character limit increase

    My original gamertag was 15 letters long, I changed it to something shorter but if I wanted to change it back I wouldn’t be able

    Unfortunately there’s no way to change it to anything more than 12 characters, like the other guy said

    I'm afraid you can't. Gamertags must meet the current requirements for the tag at the time the change is requested. If your old tag no longer meets the requirements, it's not available.

    My Gamertag reset to my old one

    The main issue is they took the money and the change did not happen. Any game that supports the new Gamertag system will, in fact, show the Gamertag I paid to change from.

    The issue users are reporting do not want the "new" format. They paid to go back to the old format.
    They took the money and change DID happen on the new Gamertag system.

    The thing is, that a lot more people wanted a change with the Gamertag system, so Xbox listened and created the new Gamertag system to please the majority of people that wanted to have their desired Gamertag, even if someone already has that Gamertag.

    But as it is with everything else: You can't please every single person. A company as big as Microsoft has to make decisions based on what the majority wants.

    If only a few people had complained about the current Gamertag system, Xbox would have saved a lot of money and work and kept the old system. But so many people wanted a change, so they got the new system.

    You are not understanding the issue.

    This an edge case where users used the free "new" Gamertag change. But then was allowed to pay to change back to an old 15 char name. After the new update users are now seeing the original "new" Gamertag again sometimes months after paying for the old one
    back.
