That's absolutely true.
On the other hand, we often get accused of having Challenges that are spamfests, where people who can play a thousand games (no matter how badly) will come out on top, while people who have a job have no chance.
That's why I insist that the scoring formula must be different every month. We keep switching it up for different tastes, 1000-game maniacs and 1-game ponderers and everything in between.
