Old gamertag and Activision name still showing on leaderboards

I recently changed my Xbox gamertag and then also my Activision name to match. The new name shows up in game (lobbies and during a match), but my old one still shows up when I go to Barracks -> Records to compare stats with friends

I figured all the systems just needed time to update/refresh, but it’s been about a week since the changes were made

This doesn’t affect gameplay, but it is a little annoying because the whole point of a name change is for the old one to be replaced. Luckily I didn’t have to pay for either name change, but I’d imagine this would bother me more if I did

I’ve done a lot of googling and most threads I read are of people only changing their gamertags and not realizing Activision accounts were separate. I changed both to be clear

I hope someone out there knows a fix!

Sorry ldk a fix! It’s just another crappy problem added to so many other problems this game has! I hope you’ve not bought full game where you can play campaign and multiplayer, cos that has a load of problems too!
 
I have a name that shouldn't even be associated with warzone that's showing as my stat name. I have no idea how it even is there
