    But at the same time It isn't the original tag, it has a suffix on it.

    Well I guess it's what it's going to be so there's no changing that... unless if people really want the original and it is still transferable.

    If you do manage to get an Original Gamertag, It's going to not have a Suffix? That's what I got from reading the QnA

    I'm just wanting to get the Original Gamertag "Kiddo"

    Yeah, you will only get the suffix if you change your gamertag to one that is already taken. If you change your gamertag to one that is not already taken, you will not get the suffix.

    Thing is, what if it is no longer taken (changed) then the next person to use that gamertag would not get the suffix right??

    i was wondering about that too. I would imagine the next person to take it gets it without the suffix.

    I don't think so, that's like a "free" GT change. I think it'll be too much trouble to find out who was the "second in line" for the GT.

    Also, Microsoft will make a quick 10$ for someone with a suffix that doesn't want the suffix.
    I, for sure, will pay for a GT without a suffix, it makes it even MORE exclusive for the people with OG GTs.

    You seem awfully hesitant to get rid of your gamertag for how obscenely disagreeable it is.

    I was just stating id rather one without the discord four numbers layout after.
    (Which I have since been told isn’t the case)
    If this was a worst gamertag competition, I’m sure you’d have it in the bag, don’t worry.

    I've been considering this but I like my 13 character gamertag. My smurf has 15 characters. Some day those will be rare haha

    Maybe if it's an actual word but I feel like most people would look right past them still.

    I was joking but maybe who knows lol. I don't get why they're shortening the character limit seems stupid.
