I hadn't thought of it that way. thanks!
what would make it an acronym, dropping "the" so it's just S.W.O.R. or swor?

I liked KNIGHTS of the Old Republic because that gave us the Acronym KOTOR. which I pronounced "ko-tor" like a word.

Warhammer Online was clever in using that subtitle "Age of Reckoning" so they were able to abbreviate it: W arhammer: A ge of R eckoning or WAR for short.

When I'm not calling the game TOR, I'm partial to Sweater. It has a nice ring to it.

Star Wars mostly. But in reading this post, I like the Swedish way and might start using that. XD
My friend and I use sw-tOR when making fun of the problem of pronouncing it.
Pardon my AFKs, I work while I play. Or is it, play while I work? Hmmm....

It's pronounced "swatter" unless you're a French Canadian ***hole. The point of pronouncing it all fancy pansy?
