my only guess is that your gamertag is slightly similar to a certain English racial slur? that's the only reason I can think of

It could definitely be picking up some form of "nig" from your name and banning it based off that. That being said, the entire thing seems to be a little overtuned regardless - a club member I have is named "ablueshoe", and that's been censored.

Yes, thats what i think too, but i think it has no sense, because is not that word, is just a nickname and is different. I dont even use english in my country, is not english or anything like that

For example, is like if somebody pick the nickname "Utah" and is banned on a spanish game because it sounds a little bit like "puta" (whore in spanish)

Is just my nickname, which is a mix of two Enter the matrix character names (niobe and ghost). I've been using it for 15 years on steam, PSN, Xbox live and tons of games or websites and never was banned or something.

Is not important to see my name in the game, but i would like to have my name back because there is no reason to ban it.

I would be a little salty if my name got censored for no reason. Other than changing your gamertag I don't know what else you could do. Maybe submit a help ticket but I'm not sure Psyonix would do anything.
