Aegon - A Grammatical Conundrum

First, well done on your newest champion, Kabam. He seems to be your best original to date.

However, I do have a bone to pick with you guys when it comes to his name and the use of the letter ash. Putting this archaic letter in his name makes no sense for several different reasons:

1) It is an Old English letter that fell from grace centuries ago. It is not part of the modern English alphabet.

2) That being said, Aegon should not have this letter in his name as he's from a different planet where English isn't a thing.

3) Even if his given name is being translated into English, it would not have an ash because, as aforementioned, the modern translation would not contain an archaic Old English letter.

4) The worst grammatical offense is your pronunciation of Aegon. Since you used the short version of the letter, his name should not contain a long "a" sound. His name should be pronounced "ah-gohn". The short version of ash makes the "a" sound in the word "ash" or "cat".

Your could have accomplished your goal by just spelling his name A-E-G-O-N.

'Tis a sad day for grammar.

    It is a sad day for grammar when grammar is conflated with phonology.

    We've danced this dance before.

    Grammar - the whole system and structure of a language or of languages in general, usually taken as consisting of syntax and morphology (including inflections) and sometimes also phonology and semantics.

    Edit: source - type "grammar" into your Google search.

    To be honest ... most of those reasons can't really be accepted, as kabam can do whatever they want in the game.
    His name is his name, just that. It doesn't matter the language or era or something. In the universe this game takes place, is a common name like the others

    What are his abilities?

    He's skill and has one arm and looks like a gladiator. That's the gist of what we know.
  • It’s Ægon
  • Just so everybody knows, we can see when somebody has multiple accounts, and when somebody has multiple banned accounts.
