Yes it does. Sorry to tell you it counts because the entire userbase isn't versed in german, and not to mention it's still changing characters in your username. Something like "Diabolikal Rapture" going to "†Diabolikal Rapture†" isn't considered a change because it's mostly leaving the username completely intact, you are changing the entirety of your username to something different. Thats like saying your changing your name from "Sword" to "Wakizashi" and it doesn't count. I'll still change it though. I do believe you have one more name change after this.
