i think it's a bit misleading to compare 8 player slow cook games to the horde of 1v1 farming games. who genuinely prefers playing Risk with only 2 players if not for points?

I prefer 2- or 3-player games because I don't have to wait up to a week for a turn like I might in one of those 8-player monsters. Also, don't I stand to win more points from seven opponents than I do from one or two, presuming I prevail?

You do get more points is you prevail in a 8-player monster.

there must be a reason why the top players play so many 1v1 or team games (which are essentially 1v1 too) while those with less to lose play games with a greater variety of settings..

There is less left to chance. 1v1 and team games are far easier to specialize in - you can script a number of plays from start to finish and do the same thing every time. In single player games, with 3 or more players, there comes a random factor of one of the players who is not you screwing up and handing the game to someone else who is not you. So while you may not win as many points in a 1v1 game, you tend to win more frequently and have a higher net gain than in other gametypes.

I guess the only solution to that problem is to refuse to join no-cards games on those maps.

wouldn't have adding most spoils before going to who joint first been better. although unlikely to get there, if someone has more spoils, their in the better position.
