IA vs. AI, or "Why are Euros like this?"

It's more than once that I've seen this on forums somewhere, but I cannot for the life of me understand why Europeans continue to call AI "IA".

Why are Europeans like this? Why? *I* am an intelligent adversary, *you* are an intelligent adversary, a goddamn cat can be an intelligent adversary if you're playing with it with a string. It's a f!@#$ing Artificial Intelligence. A robot. Not real. Artificial.

Maybe this made sense back when brits invented automated tiddlywinks machines that they could play against or some shit, but once multiplayer games were invented, "IA" stopped making sense.

I come across Intelligent Adversaries every 4v4 PvP game (some less than others). It's a terrible descriptor.

Is this just the Europeans' version of the Imperial measurement system?

How long until they realize "AI" (the metric system) is just better in every way?

I have seen IA used maybe twice in my lifetime, where the hell did you see that?

My thoughts on this question rn


in line with what Adamircz said - I myself have never heard any European refer to AI as IA.

DonsofSandiego, is this your way of trying to keep this forum alive?

Its like getting mad about, that in a significant amount of languages, the EU is called UE.
