“Do not lose time on daily trivialities. Do not dwell on petty detail. For all of these things melt away and drift apart within the obscure traffic of time. Live well and live broadly. You are alive and living now. Now is the envy of all of the dead.” ~ Emily III, World of Tomorrow
Exactly, the Kingdom of Stromgarde is the cradle of the mankind of Azeroth, in fact it is the last remnant of the Empire of Arathor (the first organization of humans in Azeroth founded by none other than Thoradin), being the city of Stromgarde itself in Arathi built on the remains of the ancient capital of the empire, Strom, and being the Captain Danath the last living member of the Trollbane dynasty.
The Kingdom of Stromgarde has always been a reference when it comes to the military power of humans: the Arathi, a warrior people all over the meaning of the word, strong and courageous, practically oblivious to the magic, they do not afraid to fight for what they consider fair. No wonder they have been allies of the Bronzebeard dwarves for generations...
Furthermore, Stromgarde has another meaning for the Alliance. Thoradin, its founder, was the one who agreed the alliance of humans and high elves, i.e. Stromgarde represents the union of friendship and brotherhood that exists between humans and high elves, Stromgarde is living proof that it is worth keeping the alliance between the Quel'dorei and humans.
Danath Trollbane will form an army of loyal men and women of Stromgarde, and along with the support of the League of Arathor, will march from the Refuge Pointe to finishing with all the Forsaken presence in Arathi, ending the aberration in which his nephew Galen has been converted. Once what remains of Galen are ablaze, Danath finally will wield the weapon of his family, the legacy of the Trollbane: the Trol'kalar.
The siege and recapture of the capital of the Kingdom of Stromgarde will be relatively easy, finishing with the Syndicate and the Boulderfist ogres, the capital will back to its ancient name: Strom. Once both Strom and the rest of Arathi lands are under control of the Kingdom of Stromgarde, the work of reconstruction will begin: Strom will become a fully functional capital, Arathi will overflow life in all areas and the Thoradin wall will be rebuilt and will be under constant monitoring and warning against Forsaken attacks.
The Kingdom of Stromgarde will serve as a haven for the Alliance, a refuge for the exiles of Lordaeron, for the refugees from Theramore, for the dispersed High Elves and the Worgen of Gilneas; Strom will be the stronghold of the Alliance further north of the Eastern Kingdoms (for now), as it will become the first step to start other offensives, such as the recovery of Gilneas, the reconquest of Lordaeron, supporting Kul Tiras by sea (yes, Strom should have harbor) or even an attack to recover Quel'Thalas for the Quel’dorei...
Therefore I say:
Yes for a Stromgarde scenario!
Recover Stromgarde is our duty!
For the Alliance! Long live Danath Trollbane!
The red fist will prevail!

It's been there since like 5.1. It's a dev testground, like the Emerald Dream had been in Vanilla.
IF it becomes real, I imagine it'll be another Fall of Theramore. Where the Alliance has to evacuate the remaining Humans while the Forsaken plague-bomb the city.
For Blizzard, the promised moment of exaltation of the Alliance is the "assault" to Orgrimmar ... which is not at all what the Alliance expected.
I fear that what I said in my previous post never will be fulfilled ... at least we have the imagination to see how the Arathi lands would be with the return of Danath:
How do people make these preview videos like the one in the OP. I mean... some random player... suddenly exploring an unreleased scenario AND FLYING AROUND. I've seen a lot of MMO-Champ vidoes like that exploring new zones and instances and simply flying. What the fck.
I don't get the obsession with Stromgarde. I know Stormwind is boring as fuck, but do human fans also find it so boring they want to claim other kingdoms? They're always after Stromgarde, Kul Tiras, and Lordaeron.
Why would GC lie about the scenario? It makes no sense. If they are going to deceive us they just don't tell us the truth and dismiss it, he doesn't outright lie.
It's a developers testing area nothing more.
I wish it was true, and Blizzard is really finally doing something with Stromgarde and Danath Trollbane, but I seriously doubt it.
I can dream, though.
Several quest dialogs for Alliance, throughout the years, have suggested a comeback at some point. I'm not going to wait though..
