it''s honour unless we are on the NA server.

 

sorry for being Edited but 9.20.1 has placed so much emphasis on this word and even WG have spelt it wrong on their website.

I agree. However, there is honor amongst loosers.

I expected a bit more colorful language.. (See what i did there?)

 

Also.. This is not the British server and most Europeans prefer the Murican spelling..

Armor/Armour?

 

Making a wild guess that this is the most common word of this type in this game.

Colour me an elitist, but I begin to get a flavour, of the behaviour, of our near neighbour (the dear french in the Paris EU office). When they labour, to bring us splendour on the front page, and all they get in return on the forums is rumour and humour. I suppose that we should armour ourselves against the influx of American spellings. But in Jeffersons original draft of the Declaration of Independence, he wrote the word using the "honour" spelling, and the later versions of the Declaration where the "u" is dropped appear to be spelling errors. Thus even the American spelling according to Jefferson has the "u" and dropping it is an error.

 

WGEU reported for spelling error!

 

HONOUR! amongst forumites.

In fact the "our" ending to English words came after the Norman invasion. The "or" ending we were using was Latinate. If you look at early versions of Shakespeare they use both "or" and "our" endings almost interchangeably, and it is not until the fourth folio in 1685 that the "our" endings are consistently used on the correct words throughout the cannon.

Oh well, I guess Brits need to be part of the world at some point, instead of trying to make everyone else do things their way.

Wrong, there are only 7 languages supported in the EU server. Want to make a wild guess how many languages are there in Europe? The EU alone recognizes 24 official ones.

We can also ask for our own EU server .... since you want to be special and 'alone'. :)

 

I'm sure you guys can have fun on your own or on the NA servers.

 

PS: Quite a vocab for a dogs-buddy. :D

Is that because it is easier to spell and takes slightly less effort?

Its partly to express my dislike of the English habit of making just about everything unnecessarily complicated..

TBH the Americanism of the English language is restricted to them, the Americans.

 

All other native English speaking countries side with the English spelling.
