Hello.
Quick question: If I change my gamertag (buying the 800MP thing) will I have problems with the EA online profile? (Since I guess It's linked to my current gamertag)

Shall I do a new profile in that case? Losing all my stats, videos saved in previous games etc...

In the end I'd just like to know if someone changed his gamertag and then had issues :)

I think your EA account is linked to the email address of your gamertag so you should be ok but im not 100% sure

Yeah it's linked to email address so you should be fine.

I have changed my gamertag with no problem as it is your email address it is linked to.

Hi everyone.

What happens in that case if you change your associated Windows Live ID (email). So you transfer your Gamertag to another Live ID.

Because then email changes and I was wondering if have to contact EA's support after doing so.

Any experiences on that?

My xbox live account ran out a while back and so I created a new one and switched the email address to my old account. All of my stats stayed and my old gamertag is recognized as a persona on the EA webpage. Following that I suppose changing the email address through the web and re-associating it with your xbox live account should have the same effect.

Thanks you a lot! I guess I have the courage to change the associated WLID. And there's always support ;D
