Alliance vs. Horde Conflict in World of Warcraft Results in Gamer Getting Turned Down for Job

The long struggle between the Alliance and the Horde in World of Warcraft recently boiled over into real life and real consequences. This might be a hoax, as the claim has not been verified, but one man claims that he was turned down for a job because the interviewer's character was in the Alliance, and his character is in the Horde:
A recent thread located on the Official World of Warcraft Forums told a story about what a player went through at their recent job interview. The job in question was a pretty important position at a local television stated located in Chicago. It seemed like a reputable place to the player, and all was going well according to the interviewee.

As the interview carried on, the player, known as "Urge," was asked what they enjoyed doing in their spare time. Of course, to this question this Urge responded by saying she played World of Warcraft. It turned out that the interviewer was also a big fan of World of Warcraft, and like any fan, asked which race Urge played on.

Excited now, the the player told her interviewer that she played a level 80 Blood Elf Priest. Unfortunately, it seemed as though this was the wrong answer because he replied, "Well I play Alliance" and almost immediately the interview was cut short, leaving Urge to ponder.

Hrumph. Obviously you're not a j-school grad, or you wouldn't let the truth get in the way of a good story.
