I definitely believe that the RNG is related to the number of cards you buy or the money you spend on the game. I never pay real money to buy packs, so I guess I am deeply punished for it.
Speaking of being punished, don't be surprised if you get a warning for pointing out the obvious. We aren't allowed to talk about such things here for some unknown reason.
The reason is not really unknown. It has been pointed out by mods previously that spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories is simply not allowed or accepted here. The reason for that can be many, but likely doesn’t deviate from why it is not allowing on many other online platforms and social media.
Conspiracy mongering is harmful not only to the person fueling the fire, but also to the community they try to feed the conspiracy. A lot of research has been done on the negative impact of spreading conspiracy theories (both social impacts and mental impacts for the ones believing them), so it is a very natural step to try and reduce the spread.
Professor Nyhan’s research speaks in more depth about the emotional impact on the believers, and also addresses the rabbit hole their brains enter. To a point where even when presented with documented proof discrediting the conspiracy theory, it will strengthen their false beliefs. Adam Mongrain has come to similar conclusion, and phrased it “once you believe something untrue, it’s very easy to keep rationalizing that belief. It’s very easy to dismiss your critics as shortsighted.”
Before this turns into a scientific rambling:
TLDR: countless scientific, both social and mental, reasons to disallow spreading of conspiracy theories.
So posts like "Fuck Druid" and "Freeze mage players should hang themselves" are completely acceptable and constructive but talking about manipulated aspects of the game is damaging. Makes sense.
That is called a strawman argument, but no, I never said or even implied that
