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.

I thought i would receive an answer from developers like on steam forums. I'd just like to know the reason.

Look at the erratic censoring from Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
1. They can do whatever, to whoever they want.
2. They claim "community standards" which are cloaked in subterfuge.
3. Complaining only makes them punish further.

In the book 1984, the Ministry of Love exterminated people, rendering them "unpersons". Every trace of their existence was eliminated.
Today the Ministry of Facebook renders people "unpersons". Again, every trace of their existence washed away.
R/L isn't much different.

And you thought Orwell's book was fiction.

Comparing Big Brother to Psyonix might be a bit far fetched, don't you think? I will say that for a book written in the late 40s, it really does hold it meaning even today. Also, correct me if I am wrong but BB didn't censor much, they simply changed how history appeared. The people censored themselves.

Guess I just have issues with anyone censoring free speech.(in any form) So did some other guy.............
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” - George Washington

Corrupt governments have used censorship to control people.
I'm not sure private companies doing the same for the sake of profits is any less offensive.
