Warning: this a notice from the Pedantic Pronunciation Police. Feel free to ignore it entirely.

But in the odd event that you care about such matters, the correct pronunciation of the Amarr Tier 3 battleship is uh-BAD-on. Not that you should feel guilty about not knowing this, because it is, like, a word that appears once in the New Testament and just about nowhere else. But now you know.

Yeah I find it odd. People are always jumping on incorrect ship pronunciations, but for some reason everyone is ok with pronouncing Abaddon wrong.

And some support for your claim: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/abaddon

Given the fact, that Abaddon (like most ship's names) doesn't stem from English, your suggestion is of course completely wrong.
