Might I ask why you subjugate the people who can spell and pronounce the language correctly to such fallacy? Why am I forced to spell like an American when I am English? I cannot comprehend why, I, as an Englishman, am forced to improperly spell my native language.

If CCP can support Russian and Japanese, then I'm sure they can provide client localization for Limey English.

It's down to demographics, tbh. Just look at the subscriber locations.

Noah Webster was a terrorist sympathiser. That is everything you need to know about the renegade colony's history.

But on a serious note, I do not know why I am forced to spell like a foreigner within my own language, I feel like there should be an Oxford English Localisation for those of us who cannot and will not adapt to another style of English.

I'm canadian and we spell it Armor.... except for our americanized military anyway.

The USA should have its own localization for these things. The majority of the world doesn't spell it this way.

You're adding "U" in completely pointless places, it doesn't make you look intelligible, it makes you seem parallel to the stereotypes we have of Americans; uneducated, incompetent morons.

Funny fact but "Armor" is actually the proper american spelling. Just like Color.
