I could make it in under the 19 games, I just need one win, but I'm not going to waste my time considering spamming the games would get me closer to a medal than playing well.

Not so sure about that. Of the 14 people who have qualified for a medal so far, 10 have done it in the 19-games or under and only four through the volume method. Empirically, therefore, it seems that the precision method gets you closer to a medal, faster.

Personally, I think that playing 19 games, even perfectly, is easier than playing 200 games, even badly.

This challenge already has 3 times the medallists of August, even though the %chance is much lower.

I think that's because WWII Poland has a very specific set of strategies. On one hand, the doors have really been opened to farming this particular strategy. On the other, many players have hopefully become better at this map and by being farmed, have learned what they did wrong and can improve. I can say that I still have no idea how to win a game on this map, I only know how to capitalize on imbalanced 3-player situations.

The majority of players don't have a clue, especially the ones spamming games.

@Duk, you missed my point. To win the best medals available you have to spam games, otherwise you have no chance.

You still have to be able to win the game no matter who you play and how good they are. Maybe in future why don't you cap the games. Eg in this challenge cap the games anyone can enter to 19 if you don't get the 900 pts after you have played 19 games then you miss the medal. That eliminates the spamming no idea type of games and players.

Having players spam games ensures that everyone can find a game in the challenge. It's extremely helpful - especially to players who don't start until the last couple weeks. In the first few challenges, there were almost no games near the end.
