Where did I assume the probability has changed depending on something else than a suspected bug ?

No, I am considering two hypotheses: 1-It is dependent on the previous season, 2-It is random with 50/50 chances. So far it is like 5:2.5 for the first hypothese.

Again, where did I state that some frequency has changed?

By that logic I should also say that the probability of getting an arcane amethyst is bugged because me and my friends got 3 on one blood moon.

0.03 % is not that low, when you think about how many rare items there are and how many people are selling them.

I agree with you in one point: YOU should learn about statistics.

Actually waiting infinitely and explaining to oneself it's just statistics would be a particularly sick case of Confirmation Bias.

The chance for the particular series I am referring to is 1/32 (=0.5^5).

On a more practical side:

I am looking for sequences like:

Everbloom - Blood Moon - Coldsnap

Coldsnap - Blood Moon - Everbloom

So far it was (IIRC):

EB-BM-EB

CS-BM-CS

EB-BM-EB

CS-BM-CS

CS-BM-CS

The last 3 were in 2017, the other 2 in mid 2016 so I might be missing something.

It is written now so I can wait a few bloodmoons more to see a larger sample.
