A Battle Plan! Been a while since we've seen one of these; in fact, the last time Blizzard posted an official Battle Plan was late 2006, and there may be good reason for that.

After five years of squatting in other races' capital cities, gnomes and trolls will have their starting zones revamped, developers confirmed through the recently concluded chat over Twitter.
