I would not use his battle against the Kage as judgement for this battle, we should all remember when they were choosing the Fifth and the "Sixth" Hokage there were plenty of names each time, Jiraya, Tsunade, Danzou, Kakashi, Shikaku, were all mentioned so I don't think all the Kage are really chosen based on power since Jiraya was hands down the strongest and he would not do it, so my point would be there are plenty of shinobi in the alliance who may have a similar level of power who don't want to the job so Madara waiting for the strongest to step forward makes sense.
While I can agree with the overconfidence, I don't agree with Madara simply watching Obito do work, like he's the Lackey. Additionally THESE ARE Uchiha, they can see attacks, all attacks that are chakra, including cloaked Jinks (or wannabe jinks). Madara owned Kyuubs as a pet, and I'm assuming for a while since Kyuubs knows him so well. Added to it, with the Kages, Raichu is supposedly Bijuu Level on par, and the other Kages, I'm sorry, I see them as much better shinobi than whats on the battlefield right now. They're are more options from the many shinobi, but a smarter Madara has wiped the battle field twice already, one with the largest Grand Fireball ever seen from any Uchiha, and secondly the Meteors that fell from the sky like raindrops. So sitting here watching some named, but mostly fodder ninja hold Madara at bey, and undecisive is another character personality shift for no unknown reason.
