Random encounters with AN ENEMY BLOGGER!

Over the last week I've had the great fortune of running into my fellow Drendenite Keredria a few times in-game! Azeroth is a huge place, and now that we're not all conglomerating in a central hub this happens a lot less than you'd think.

The first time I was actually tabbed out, probably checking Twitter or reading blogs. I had parked myself in the stupid gyreworm cave, dreading yet another day of mucking about in those caves for Therazane. When I came back, I was delighted to see a familiar name standing next to me emoting at my idle self!

What makes this even more random is that K apparently almost never does those dailies, and Rades had only just unlocked them like a day earlier! So the chances of this happening was virtually nil, and yet, there we were! :D

This was actually the second time in about a week that we'd met, surprisingly. However, the first time I was on my Death Knight, who I'm sure most people still wouldn't immediately recognize as me. Instead, they probably just wonder who this weird DK that's waving and gasping at them.

That seemed to be the case with K, who didn't respond when my DK greeted her. Of course, I was also trying to smash her into teensy pieces and wrest control of the Slagworks away from her and her teammates, so she may have been preoccupied. ;)

Who needs Healers Have To Die when you know they're a healer by name alone? ;D

You won that round, K. But we'll get it next time! /shakefist

    Oh my gosh... LOL!!!

    Yeah it was pretty insane that we just happened to run into each other in the tunnel.

    I should remember your DK by now because you ran across Jess and I back in Hyjal in December. But if I'm in Tol Barad, I'm usually not reading names and just focused on grid boxes. :)

    Though I will sometimes take note of guild names and I know I've seen yours many times and been like "Huh, I wonder what that means". Hopefully that will make me notice when you are on your DK.

    So what does your guild name mean by the way?

    It means "Two Time Good Fighter", apparently! Haha. I think the original guild members (most of the guild knows each other IRL) used to have a ska band that used it as a name! It does get some curious inquiries from strangers, and I've had some people in PuGs from other servers recognize it from past pugging experiences! (Hopefully good ones, haha.)

    LOL I see no twitter peeps on Burning Legion from the other faction...ah well. My urge to gank might be more immense than politeness anyway :)

    That is so awesome!

    I don't have that happen with me, except when I'm on Moonrunner actually talking with some of the P.A. gang. I guess that except for my blogmates Soul and Ehna, there aren't any bloggers on A-52 or Ysera.

    Is that an unnamed pet I see in the background? tututut *shakes head* ;)

    @Zinn - the shame! It is indeed unnamed so far. When 4.0 came out I went through a massive pet-training spree and rounded up about 10 new ones, and I've yet to come up with suitable names for them! For this guy I'm likely going to go with the plain but appropriate Sting or crank up the geek and go with Waspinator. (A Transformers: Beast Wars reference, for those who don't recognize it.)

    I have a guild mate that has a few hordie 85s on my server as well as the 85s in my guild.

    Can't help but focus him when I see him on his horde character just so I can rub it in later if I win.

    It is worth rubbing in because he is 100 times better then I am at PvP but I occasionally squeak out a win. Even one win from me has to kill him being he knows I am not really good at PvP and he is pretty awesome.

    Makes vent fun.

    He he wins and goes to brag I just say, you whopped me, I suck.

    When I win it get fun because I said, I whooped you and I suck which usually causes everyone to rag on him.

    Yeah, it means "Two Time Good Fighter", which means basically "very good fighter". Many of the original members of the guild were in a ska band together, and before that we played a lot of 2-D fighting games ala Street Fighter 2 etc. Many of the games have interesting broken english in them where they say things like "Tonight! We have two time good fighters for only you now!" Calling someone a "Two Time Good Fighter" became a running joke, and then a band name, then a guild name.

    Yay Keredria! I never ran into her during my time on Drenden, alas. Naively, I wish everyone was on one big server!
