    I have another account and was thinking of changing the dumb gamertag to Toxic Evil. But was wondering if i should change it to T0xic Ev1L or something.
    So do you think that letters or numbers would be best, for any gamertag?

    I'd go all letters. the only time I use numbers in my name is when the name I want is taken.

    Yeah, numbers are usually a last resort.

    Things in gamertags that annoy me, in no particular order.

    #1: Numbers as letters
    #2: More than 3 letters numbers at the end (well, any numbers are annoying at the end, but more than 3 is just too many, imo)
    #3: X's and l's at the beginning and end
    #4: Capitalized letters for every other letter

    Edit: Numbers, not letters, my bad.

    They really bother me too. All Caps is even worse. I would prefer to have only letters. Numbers in names remind me of good ol' Arby 'n Chief where Chief is an idiot...

    LMAO my gt is liek all of the things you hate and its a pain to write and or type so just plain is easier but i think that it depends on what your gt idea is.

    e.g. Crazy Stairs would look gay so i put xCr4zY StA1Rsx

    Letters definitely! I hate it when people spell with numbers! It looks so stupid!
    When I see someone saying "C4n 1 Ha5 R3c0nz?" it makes me want to shoot them! I would definitely spell with letters only it makes you look much more serious, mature, neat and proffesional! That is my opinion. But if you spell with Numbers I might hate you forever!

    Seconded... or thirded... or whichever number it's on by now.

    People who use numbers as letters are under the age of 14 and need to hit puberty.

    All letters, definitely. It looks much cleaner. Essentially, here's what I always suggest - don't try and make your tag of choice be available by adding x's and o's and lots of numbers. Only thing you should do here is 2, maybe 3 numbers max at the end.

    However it looks much cleaner and better if you can come up with a gamertag that has not been used at all.

    Also, in mid-game, it's much easier to figure out and say "Mr Soldier" than to decipher "xXxOMrxS01D13RxXx" to tell him someone's behind him.

    EDIT:

    Says the guy with 4 numbers in his name... sorry couldn't resist

    I honestly hate numbers (ironic), they annoy the hell out of me. And people with more than three numbers in their name are usually annoying 12 year olds when i play against them. Not always, but it's usually the case.
