I like how everyone here googles Gamblers Fallacy, Conformation Bias, and Statistics and suddenly we have more noble prize winners & math experts than casual gamers. ¦]

People are trying to find a pattern in randomness. It is like a coin toss, both sides have 50% chance of ocuring. But getting heads or tails 10 times in a row is far less likelly than having a sample that is mixed.

Oooooh. I'm pretty sure it's random.

I distinctly remember when we implemented seasons and JC said, "So, are we OK with the possibility that players go through a Cold Snap, get a Blood Moon, and then get hit with another Cold Snap?" and I said, "Yes, ***** them."
