Why argue which ones better when you can just play on all of them?

The term "En Route" is a french term and they have used the term, it wouldnt make sense if it was in route, now would it

Yes, I've heard En Route used in several places. It's basically a fancy way of saying "on the route". I wouldn't put too much thought into it, it's just another one of those cross-language phrases that became widespread. Well, I'm off to play some games, so sayonara!
