Great read.
And all of it is extremely true.
Just don't go making a name for yourself such as "1337Sn1per 1289" ;)

Say my application is accepted and I become part of vVv, if I changed my name it would go from VVV Gonzaah to vVv Gonzaah. That, to me, seems pointless haa

Good read! I knew a guy who literally changed it over 200 times, so he got a letter telling him to stop changing or he would be banned. It was hilarious.

i read an article that said that changing your tag could be beneficial. it was saying as players progress and make mental changes, a physical change needs to take place also. ironically enough, my tag used to be Pyronic~Star, and i changed it to logic about a year ago and my placings have incresed. a player who used to go by PGN changed his tag to Vinnie, and is now one of New Jersey/New Yorks top players. ADHD did not become arguably one of the top 3 best players in the U.S. until after losing the tag chrome pirate. these improvements weren't an instant "i changed my name now i'm good" but these are just some examples where a name change resulted in a major improvement in the end.

I like to use the advice, but i made a hell of a choice with my current name. I might do a name change sometime soon to something like snapple.

its very hard trying to stick to a gamertag or alias, reason why? its like i had my M07VSTER gamertag since i was 14 well not exactly the same spelling but it was monster though.Its hard going online and playing halo or gears of war and find somebody with the same gamertag or same unique gamertag yeah i know people will have almost have almost the same idea as me but its difficult to establish a name thats unique and you can stick too cause you want it to be cool and sooner or later a household name but this is an interesting article to read

I had to change my gamertag during Halo 3 because I don't remember who it was, but one of my friends at the time thought it would be a great Idea to send out a mass message on my tag to report my name so I could get a free name change. Sure enough people followed through and I went from Doc Nova (which was original as all get out) to iDoc Nova. Looking at the I in front of my name drove me insane so a change was needed, and NYGHTLY was born haha. No more name changes! Half of my event shirts have NYGHTLY on the back of them now haha.
