why is that?
I used to play a while back risk on facebook on an app by zynga (called attack!). you had points and you could play games worth between 20 and 5000 points. I agree that this would change a lot the point system but I don't see what type of abuses could be done if you could play games with more or less value.
regarding your question: beating your own high score is fun. playing stupid games is fun. but you can't have both type of funs right now, even if we could. some games are more important than others; why couldn't we attribute different amount of points in stake?
other example: i have a real life friend who plays a little of CC and he really dragged me into playing a few 1vs1. we played 6 games, I won 4 (won 32pts) and lost 2 (lost 104 points). It's just stupid to accept a challenge vs a friend with this point system.
This afternoon I really felt like playing a few quick speeders, played only vs colonels to captains won 2 (32pts) lost 3 (101 points). A victory vs mid colonel+a mid major makes you lose points if you lose vs a mid range captain after that. I know how it is, but what's wrong with letting people play games more casually once in a while?
what about giving the opportunity to play X amount of games point free per month for all premiums?
