    I like Soldier. Solly sounds like someone's crazy aunt.

    EDIT: FFFFFFFFFF I spelled Soldier as Solder mods please fix.

    I know a girl called sally. solly is like sally. Solly must therefore be a sissy pansy.

    So it has to be soldie... oh wait, I'm on team demoman, soldiers ARE sissy pansies, solly it is then!!


    (actually voted soldier)

    Solly sounds... very silly. It's not that bad in German, but in English, it's just ridiculous. Soldier all the way.

    Once, I was on a... Czech server or something? And they kept calling that one Soldier just "Soll". Dunno if it's their word or anything but it is just one syllable!

    Solly is just flat out stupid. That is all.

    And so is Solli, Soli, Soly and... Soldi. I swear I've read that last word before, despite it seeming too ridiculous to be true.

    The only abbreviation of a class name I'll ever use is Engy, because Engineer is sort of long.

    "solly" is pants-on-head stupid, doubly so since it doesn't save any syllables.

    Solly is the TFC abbreviation that has been in the rounds for the better part of a decade.

    I say Solly.

    I see people say "sol" on occasions.

    But normally it's "solly". Occasionally the full "soldier".

    It's a matter of letters to type quickly, than saying it.

    It's only longer by 1 letter. :O
