Probably necessary because I speak German. German has the strange trait that double-digit numbers from 21 onwards are basically read backwards.
Nobody says vierzigzwei. It's two and forty.
I haven't come across any other major languages that do it like German.
English can do it like that actually. Specifically old people and the number 25. They might say it as 5 and 20 instead. It's weird.
Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
