    If I change my gamertag to something that has a suffix, will my friends see the suffix in-game? I know that they won't see it in the friends list, I just wanna know before I commit to a new one.

    There isn't a way to hide those numbers, Sorry if someone told you different. Having the same gamertag as someone else would cause problems that is why the number system is there to stop false reports ect. It's for security and safety reasons that's why
    the new # number system was in place.

    Unfortunately there really isn't a way around the 12 character rule.

    New gamertag system?

    I dont like that you can take someone else's gamertag just by adding a number. That's stupid.

    The only change they should have made is taking away the fee to change it. You already pay for their service.

    Xbox is the only platform in the world that charges you to change your screen name. Its absolutely ridiculous.

    New gamertag system?

    I use a short gamertag and it does not affect me, but I have seen many people disagree with this, and it make sense as some people like to have long gamertag that are unique for them.
