Then what's the point of calling it a gray conflict, and saying that every side has its own strengths and faults?

 

A conflict can still be gray even if one of the 8+ sides is completely evil/good. Overall there is still plenty of gray in the new God Wars, just not with Bandos.

Is there anyone else who is annoyed by reading Gray as Grey ?


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

No real difference, they both denote the same colour and I use them interchangeably for the most part without even thinking.

But it isn't a gray conflict (Bandos VS. Armadyl, the overall God Wars are arguably a gray conflict). It has been established that Bandos is a fairly evil character. That doesn't mean he isn't sophisticated or slightly interesting; but it does mean he is a 'black/white' character. The same applies to Armadyl. He's basically a good guy. He's not as well developed, sophisticated or interesting as Guthix (the ultimate and most well-developed good guy in RS), but he's certainly a good guy. That doesn't mean Armadyl isn't interesting, but he is a 'black/white' type character.

And besides, we make him evil. We are in a way all pacifists. We all are disgusted by war which makes war bad and in turn makes Bandos evil.

I was under the impression that even then it was sort of inconsistent. You see them both somewhat equally in the States.

You see both in the States, but according to Wiktionary, only grey is used in the UK (probably still mixes up enough).

I was always under the impression states side it was supposed to be gray at all times, but due to imports and international stuff they see grey sometimes and get confused and end up using both even though grey isn't really their word. I suppose it could be a regional thing though for you guys, all I know is for Brit side its always grey other than some surnames being Gray whilst in states lingo grey = gray.

 

Kinda like a reversal of the stereotype where you always see Americans getting all higher-than-thou grammar nazi when they see tyres or colour etc. on forums yet you never see Brits/every other english speaker having any trouble knowing the tyres/tires and colour/color stuff.

Apparently my hands agree with you, but I'm not sure my professors would.

Considering the language is spoken in England, by the English, and the language itself is called English, I more or less differentiate between the English language by those of the UK and murkan nglsh spoken by da yankeez yolorofl

 

They are two languages. American, and English. Damnit, world, agree with me.

Q fixed all the spelling in my DK guide to British spelling :(


DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
