    I'd like to give my feedback on this.

    One issue that may arise of allowing people to change their usernames without cool-down is it grants power to malicious users of it. Hackers on servers or rule-breakers will be hard to catch as their identity is constantly changing. As you mentioned too, keeping track of friends will be difficult as well.

    Just in general, preserving the identity of a player will be challenging if said player is able to modify their username at will whenever without cool-down. It'll just be chaotic, is all.

    With Microsoft accounts becoming mandatory, it would make since to have a system where two names are available, one for your Xbox account name, and one for your Minecraft in game name. This would also open up the possibility of having two people with the same nickname, but a differentiation using a second name on a new profile system or after their nickname in the tab menu.

    Perhaps even a system where uuid's are customizable like your real name, and visible in game under your name.

    Mojang could also go the rout of integrating a friend system similar to bedrock, so changing your account name will not cause you to loose your connections to other players.

    I feel Minecraft is due an overall overhaul to the multiplayer system, primarily in the field of adding features like friending and faster name changing.

    Instead of removing it completely I'd say it would be a better idea to reduce it from 30 to a shorter period of time, a fair amount of time I would think would be 14 days (2 weeks).

    Indeed. Recently I changed my Java Minecraft username to "ItsAFoxInABox" but literally yesterday I got banned for 2 days for "staff impersonation" because there was a staff member called "vvoxl" aka Fox, although literally, everyone knew ItsAFoxInABox was NOT vvoxl's alt or connected to vvoxl whatsoever, and since I changed it about 13 or so days ago, I have to wait 17 days til I can! I feel it unfair, especially when I feel vvoxl and I was on generally good terms. 

    I agree with one of the users below's comments, how since your Xbox Gamertag is different it won't really matter. Of course, I do agree also with the fact that changing usernames constantly would be a hassle, but honestly, most people might just change it because they HAVE to. Shortening the time limit to yes, 2 weeks would be a big relief, and maybe if for security and hassle you could have a subtitle underneath or something that says "previously known as so and so."

    Agree 300% At least make it shorter, say 10-15 days. 30 days is painfully painful accompanied with even more pain. Pain in the ass. Painful.  Yeah bye
