What a bunch of whiner.
Ok assassin is a luck based setting. That's assassin, do you complain assassin exists?
Nuclear give it a an extra part of luck. Not that huge so, I mean if you are lucky enough to nuke the last territory of your opponent, it means you already reduced your opponent to 1 territory, battle of actium isn't a small map, to reduce someone to 1 territ means you had to play good.
Ok 7 players nuke means nuke going in all direction, but still.
And freestyle casual on a map without obj, no problem, it only means the games will be faster. Everyone can play freestyle casual you do NOT need to be fast to play freestyle casual. If it was escalating standard ok then being fast can help. But nuclear assassin, the freestyle setting doesn't change shit to the way of playing it. You can play it on a tab/phone.
What is interesting with those challenge is that they force you to play some kind of setting/map you may not play usually. Those 12 players zombie trench on eastern hemisphere last year for example, I would have never played that if it wasn't for the challenge. And that was fun.
If the challenge just use normal setting everyone play day to day then it is boring.

Took me 1 sec to find a more luck based setting
I beg to differ on the odds.
Player 1, me, joins the freestyle game. However, player 1 only gets to play once per day, maybe twice, always about the same times. No waiting for someone else to start. As a further handicap for a freestyle (or speed) game, Player 1 will be on a tablet and not a computer. With CC's active discouragement of mobile platforms, another big slow down.
All other players will be on desktop or laptop computers.
I figure player 1's odds of winning at 1%, maybe 2%.
I'd say you lose maybe 2% chance of winning from your standard chance with all the disagreement you have, so instead of 14% chance of winning, you have 12%.
7 players freestyle nuc, assassin, no obj, I don't see how the freestyle can be a problem for you. Ok maybe the one targetting you will get double turn on you sometimes but that's it, if you didn't have a bonus then it doesn't matter - and you got to be lucky to have a bonus on this map with 7 players. Won't be so much of problem as you said, the 5 other players will still ignore you.
