The true power of World of Warcraft was unleashed during the second episode of BBC program World Series of Dating, when a pair of awkward strangers suddenly discover they have one major thing in common.

It doesn't matter how old, young, pretty or plain you are; if you play World of Warcraft you've instantly got something to talk about with anyone else that plays. This is proven in a clip from the BBC's speed-dating reality program, World Series of Dating. Just look at how those two light up when they realize they're both online gamers!

Of course the relationship could never work. He's Alliance, she's Horde. The world doesn't need another Gnomeo and Juliet story.
