Inb4 Jaina proudmoore as new warchief for horde
If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

"So, just to be clear, there is currently nothing related to Stromgarde in production."
Pretty much wraps it up.

And yet the diehard human fans can't stop foaming at the mouth at slightest mention of the bloody ruin.
Well it's out there. It's hard to NOT ignore it and in fairness I don't foam at the mouth of it. At most, my mind lights up. Still I wouldn't be surprised if someone gets a boner when they hear Stromgarde.
It could play a bigger role in the next expansion / alliance war effort.
We have already been informed by ghostcrawler that the ending of siege will highlight the growing tension between Jaina and Varian,
With regards to the alliances approach to dealing with the horde menace. This scenario could be used to relocate Dalaran and create a new alliance foothold in the north.
What's with all these people dismissing Stromguarde as irrelevant? It's a major fortified city that has been in the game since WCII and would make for a fine staging point north of the Thandol span. I'm not even an alliance player and Stromguarde gives me the jollies. It's also adjacent to Dun Garok- a subterranean tunnel could connect the two and act as a fine passage of entrance into the Hillsbrad foothills for lowbie alliance players (as well as being a badass dwarf fortress).
At the moment, the Alliance outpost in the Arathi Highlands is literally a hole in the ground.
Danath Trollbane is of the very same house Trollbane of Stromgarde. Oh my how kickass it would be to have Danath Motherfucking Trollbane seated on the recaptured and renovated Stromgarde Throne. From a lore perspective, it'd be nice to have a human capital as separate from Stormwind, for the displaced humans of former Lordaeron and surrounds. Because as it stands, the Stormwind claim to Lordaeron is a tenuous one. Stromguard could be a rallying point for those humans who didn't become forsaken, those humans who wish to fight against their risen countrymen to take the northern EK for the living.
Did any of you play WCII? Stromguarde was badass in that game. I iterate again, as an avid horde fan, an major Alliance push into the Northern EK would be awesome. Give me battlefield Lordaeron! Let the Alliance attack from Southern and Western staging points in Gilneas, Kul Tiras, and Stromguard.
I don't care what everyone says, i love stromgarde keep!
My personal opinion is that they used old zone + scenario with means in my opinion of course that this is the best scenario yet! =)

Chances are way greater that Goblins and Worgen are to receive proper territories before something as deprecated and with no valuable resources as Stromgard is used. Stromgard would serve only as a mental masturbation to SOME alliance players with ego problems.
Arthas was a Horde leader, did you know?
Alliance dissatisfaction have nothing to do with Blizzard's writing but is everything about George Fisher and boogie2988's Francis respective factions.
