Bethesda did them a favor. "Praey" is a great play on words that fits well into their game's narrative.

Prey and pray already sound the same, so no need to make it even more obvious, and they do have a stylized "E" already. It's as dumb as if V-Rally and Dirt Rally had to fight for the right to use the word "rally" in the name and the losing side had to settle for "rallye". It's obvious that those kind of names can coexist just fine.

"Rallye" isn't a play on words in the context of either game. I was being facetious when I said Bethesda did them a favor, though. But I do see your point. The phonetical equivalence already does the job and is subtler, which is probably better than that "praey" frankenstein.
