Have you ever been out and about, minding your own business, having a casual conversation with a friend and fellow WoW player about the latest patch or last night's dungeon, then some random stranger comes up to you and says something like, "Hey, I'm sorry, I couldn't help but overhear, but do you guys play WoW? I've got a level XX [race] [class] on [server]"?

I've probably had two handfuls of people come up to me in real life, either overhearing I play WoW from conversation, or seeing that I'm wearing my Warlock shirt or Horde sweater, and strike up a conversation with me about the game.

While places of congregation abound, such as a gaming convention, comic book shop, or GameStop, the topic persists more of an unprecedented setting. I ran into an Alliance member at a mall outside of the restrooms and we had a heated debate about Varian Wrynn. A guy started a conversation with my cousin and me at a sushi bar because my cousin and I were discussing ICC. A friend and I were at dinner at an expensive restaurant, and I was telling her about my spec, as she was leveling a warlock, and our waiter chimed in about his warlock.

Have any of you out there in the blogosphere had this happen? If so, what was your experience like? Was it just a pleasant conversation or did you face off with a passionate member of the opposing faction?

Quite ironic timing ;)

I actually blogged last year about running into a reader of my blog at a convention in Baltimore, it was a short/boring post so I won't link that as my post for this topic, but I will be posting on this.

Cheers!
