All I can say is that from warcraft 3 and beyond, Jaina has always shown to be the most capable leader and RP wise I would follow her period. When Medivh brought her and Thrall together, she realised the importance of them working together. That it was their main chance to save the world. She put aside their differences and worked together and succeded. When her father attacked the horde, she stopped him. Not because she sided with them, but because at the time they were innocent, they had a potential to be a great force of good or evil, and she wouldnt allow them to be destroyed because of this. Its the same idea as just killing someone cause they could become a mass murderer, or one of the worlds great protectors.And for those saying Jaina is a wimp, you might wish to remember the fact that when she was kited to Orgrimmar in the game, she destroyed Thrall, and Vol'jin without breaking a sweat, so I think that says something about her power that if she thought something was she deal with it.I believe this website also had a vote on who was the greatest leader and the only reason Jaina lost was the vote was split on the Alliance side.Overall Varian will push things too far, and Jaina will step in and put a stop to it, and the Alliance will follow her. If she didnt have the ability to make them follow her, the original alliance at Hyjal would have never happened

I don’t see how kiting one NPC and having it destroy another NPC is part of a story line when it seems to be screwy game mechanics at best. Game mechanics dictate green target attacks red target. It doesn’t have an AI to understand, “Oh wait, I am suppose to be friendly to this guy.” And that fact that you claim she didn’t break a sweat makes me wonder what sort of defense abilities and offence powers were even incorporated in the game for Thrall at that point.I think the correct term for Jaina is FENCE SITTER. She won’t make choices until she has to and sometimes she doesn’t act at all. If she could teleport Varian and friends back to SW from UC AT ANY TIME, why didn’t she do that immediately? I was so pissed at her when Varian started to charge forward and she’s like, “Nope, I’m not coming. Not gonna be a part of this.” And then she teleports people back AFTER Varian is engaged in battled. If she was as smart as she says she is, and I doubt it, she would have taken us back after Putress was killed. She was reluctant to go to UC, she offered her help as if she had her hands tied behind her back and then as a coop degrace cuts her support immediately. If I was her, I would done one of two things. 1. NOT have taken Varian there at all or 2. Teleported everyone back before he meant up with Thrall. The fact that Jaina lost on that poll as Leader is because she NEVER WAS the greatest leader. Obviously the Alliance is split because they view different people as great leaders. I value wisdom, but I also value action and decision. You have to act and make choices, you can’t afford to just sit there and hope it goes away. And with Jaina, a lot of her decisions come after events occur. She doesn’t stop her father until after he starts attacking - she doesn’t even try to stop Arthas. While there are things about Varian I would rather have improved, I rather follow him than Jaina. At least he doesn’t lollygag.
