    Default Xbox Gamer Tag

    HI All

    I noticed that after i created a Xbox live ID it automatically assigned a number at the end of the tag
    Is this a general thing where a number is allocated ?

    It creates your first gamer tag dynamically.

    Then after that you can change it once for free.

    Likely whatever you entered wasn’t available so it automatically completed it for you and you didn’t pay attention to notice.

    Usually the default is two random words followed by a number.

    It's a new thing for new accounts, so you can pick any name and it will just append a #number . For old original one of a kind accounts it does not doe that.

    You can add me : Uberutang
    We’ve updated new Xbox gamertags to support a 12-character max, Unicode-based name of your choice, with an auto-generated suffix if the gamertag is shared. We now offer 13 different alphabets for gamers, which support more than 200 languages worldwide.
    Note Existing gamertags will remain unchanged with no suffix. No action is necessary unless you want to make a change.
    New Xbox players or those who want to change their gamertag can claim one of their choice, up to 12 characters. If a gamertag is already taken, a suffix with numbers is attached to differentiate you from other people with the same gamertag. Suffixes are subtle so that the focus is on the name you chose, but they are always shown.
    New gamertag updates are available at https://social.xbox.com/changegamertag. If you do decide to change your existing gamertag, be aware that you may lose it to someone else.

    Jy kan dit een keer verniet verander, die nommers is agv iemand anders wat dieselfde gamer tag het. (As ek dit reg verstaan).

    Bly jy like gamepass.

    Jyt ook op 'n goeie tyd gejoin, check die sale, paar amazing games vir cheap cheap:

    Oh en kry 'n buddy wat kan gameshare en reel dat julle halfies gaan op ultimate subs.

    Gold plus gamepass op console en PC vir R75 is ridiculous.
