    Are you looking for a reason why that stuck? I could list birth defects, childhood head trauma, and a list of labeled and identifiable conditions, but we'll just say that the correct spelling is oranje instead.

    Because O looks like zero.

    No idea why people didn't go with L for legendary. shrug I guess we're all crazy.

    Coming off as a misanthrope here. I personally choose to go with the nonjudgmental approach and say the reason it stuck was humor.

    "org" would probably read as "organization", "organ", or "arg" to too many people. Combine that with a 40-character limit, and it's easy to see why it gets an association with a tasty beverage instead.

    It's not! Certain people just skipped grade school or forgot how to spell orange! :3

    Selling Tier III Terminal Sentiment Essential: Weapoun
    Sounds nicer but takes more space than: "S>OJ Term Wep Ess"

    Guess it formed out of bad habit, like Weapon instead of Weapoun [:>]

    I always called it gold back in the day (those 2 extra characters dont phase me), but now the party boat has left the docks and OJ is the official word. IDK man. IDK

    I wonder why the stateside/EU devs are either too lazy or given so little leeway with code that they can't go in and set the character limit to a more acceptable value for western languages. This game has been out for years and it's pretty sad to see that's never been accomplished.

    Orenji.

    ..

    Or a more realistic reason, the way orange is pronounced would be my guess: Or-rain-juh. Alternatively, if you can read the phonetic alphabet: ôrənj

    I was so confused with Oj in megas when I came back from my year long break. haha.

    If it was up to me I would have labeled them as T3 (Tier 3) Essence.
    T1= Blue
    T2=Purple
    T3=Orange
    Maybe even Add L and H into the mix being Low roll and High roll.

    So a mega would look something like this...

    S>HT3*ATT Term weapon ess ___mil +call
    or
    S>LT3 Braha wep ess +sad

    But that's just me ..and in a way my method may be even more confusing so ... orange juice it is.
