Your console and gamertag are most likely banned from halo 3 matchmaking for 3 months.

I wouldn't risk that for a 3 month ban.

Well, you probably got two messages. One probably said that your Xbox was banned for 3 months and the other probably said that, that account was banned permanently. Read the messages carefully. Bungie always bans the account and Xbox. So check what each message said.

If they sent you a new Xbox, but your account would still be banned.

Just curious but what if i paid the 800 ms points to change my gamertag would that make any difference or not at all?

I don't believe changing the name would do anything. Bungie wouldn't allow accounts they perma banned to be able to avoid the banhammer by a simple name change. The easiest fix is pulling a switcheroo at walmart or other retail store with a relaxed return policy. You could force red ring and send it in to microsoft... but that takes forever sometimes ive heard. Yes... your account will still be banned for however long the message says. Depending on if the account has been banned before... the tag that actually got banned could be banned for 1 week, 1 month, or 3 months.

No. This isn't Gears of War. Bungie isn't as stupid as Epic. They know how to ban people.

The only thing they change is your console id because when u send it in the more likely give u a different xbox. :smile:
