It seems you are a bit bitter at Medivh. Now, as previously mentioned, is there any lore confirmation that Medivh knew that far into the future and was playing that complicated a game of chess? Honest question since lore these days has exploded much more than before and they may have alluded to it in a book.To which my point of view was always that Medivh was simply playing with previous knowledge, and may have even been unaware of the connection between the Lich King and Burning Legion. He knew the Burning Legion was targeting Azeroth, witnessed visions of things to come if nothing was done to warn the races (orcs and humans rushing at each other while infernals fall from above on the unsuspecting armies), and that their target would most likely be the World Tree. To that extent, he was more trying to get the pieces on the board in the first place rather than already playing a game with the Burning Legion. Otherwise, if he knew all things about the fate of every individual on the field, then why even go to the King in the first place? Why not just appear to Antonidas and then Jaina later on and be done with it if he knew it was enough. In the story, it seemed there was no reason for warning the King than to hope his warning was heeded, thus giving the impression he wasn't playing some masterful strategy and simply warning any who might possibly listen. So, I don't know, but to me; you can't really blame Medivh for the entire fall of Lorderon.
