    I think it happens more right before your sub runs out or when your on a resub/trial

    I think that the RNG can get "stuck" sometimes... back in ICC on sindragosa fighting on my mage, with a crit chance of 63.x%, I managed to get TWO crits during the successful fight.
    I ran the numbers, and the odds were better for winning a country wide lottery like mega millions on two successive draws than only getting two crits during that fight.

    It's coincidence.

    They're also identical to the chances of flipping HHHHHTTTTT and HHHTTTHHTT
    And to any other specific sequence of the same length. There's 1024 different sequences which all have a 1/1024 chance of occuring. Well, what a coincidence.

    Re subscriber luck sure seems real when it comes to how lucky my friends have gotten. Im the only sucker outta the group who always has his sub on. Everyone quits for 6 months comes back and is showered in LFR loot and mounts from drops and heroic bags.

    What would happen if someone could prove that correct with a statistic?

    I just hold my breath and squint real hard, tbh. Works like a charm. Some of the time.
    Look! Words!

    Yes it is small, but it is exactly the same as any single mix and match any combination flip 10 times.

    That means HTHTHTHTHT Flip 10 time is equal chance as HTTHTHHTTT,HHHHHHHHHH, HTHTTTHTHT,....(total 10 combination)

    Just because human see a patten doesn't mean that combination is special, it is treated exactly the same as any other combination in probability.

    Given how WoT is one big "it's (not) your turn to win" I wouldn't be suprise if some developers decide to start using such systems.

    There is actually a secret switch in peoples account, but weather it is turned on or off is complete RNG.
