You're suggesting that the Bronze Flight should be looking for ways to alter history without changing the outcome we currently have, and that's simply not their mandate. They're charged with protecting it from outside interference, which right now is the Infinite Flight.More importantly, while ensuring the portal opens and Thrall enters the world might not necessarily be the only way we could have ever stopped Archimonde, the point most important to the Bronze dragons is that it was successful in the long run. Suppose they allow Medivh to die at the Dark Portal and it turns out a united front with the orcs was the only chance of stopping Archimonde. They simply can't take that chance; the way events have currently played out has been a success overall, and risking that to save some lives wouldn't be worth it considering their primary focus. This holds true for both helping Thrall escape as well as culling Stratholme. The one instance that I never truly understood was Mt. Hyjal. This seemed the biggest 'lorelol' moment of the Caverns; while it's a pivotal lore moment and a very fun fight to be part of, I could never really understand the reason for us going back there. The Infinites didn't seem to have any presence, so it always seemed reckless from a lore perspective to send us back to a fight we'd definitely win where there was no risk of interference.As far as Nozdormu goes, I agree that the only logical reason he'd switch would be Old God corruption, but I also agree that seeing him at the Shrine was probably a feint. I think they've got much more to build on there.
