Why mashindano and not mechi for match?

very inconsistent and frustrating indeed!!

Mashindano =competition Mechi= match. Every language has words that can be used interchaneably although to the purists they may have sligtly different meanings. Hopefully DL won't mark it wrong when we follow their lead and use them interchangeably.

Mashindano is a competition not a match. These two words are very different in English
