Why does sometimes when a friend i nmy FL changes his Gamertag i get a message "C0DwhinyVirgin" is now "BF3BadAZz" and sometimes i don't get a message.

Automated process?

Your friend is most likely sending it to inform you of his name change.

He's probably sending out a 'Message to all Friends' (MTAF) to inform you. If you don't get one, then the person didn't send one.

There's no automated system for when someone changes their gamertag.

I never got one

I've gotten a few and I like it, so the next time I look at my FL, I don't do a "Who's that?"

Your friend will have sent you a message as it doesn't notify you automatically. Although tbh it should.

Such a terrible GT anyway.

I don't know how many times I have had friends change their GT and not say anything only to look at my FL and see 3 or 4 changed and thinking oh crap i've been hacked. Then to see later that a few have gone so i assume since nothing is amiss on my account that they changed there name or dropped me lol
