    "people blaming it as rigged to get money thats so **** guys if u lose, your enemy win ... you realise you play vs another customer right ? .... xD"

    if two players 3-0 traditional draft and two go 0-3 the prizing is 6000 gems and packs

    if the same four players go three 2-1 and one 0-3 the prizing is 3000 gems and packs

    same players: one 3-0 and three 1-2? also 3000 gems and packs.

    so which one of these will leave players needing to buy the most gems to continue to draft? or are all of these outcomes the same in your mind?

    and if there are bots thrown in here and there.... well bots don't need prizing at all!

    "shuffler is fine and people crying about shuffler mostly do it as a running gag xD
    if you really think its broken ur not rly understanding how RANDOM works"

    based on what? what evidence do you have of anything of the sort that warrants you calling people stupid (In an extremely poorly written post as well, ironically)?

    Did Wizards send YOU the documentation of the independent analysis and testing of their algorithms and random number generator that they would be forced to supply If they were an online casino.

    but wait, they ARE an online casino! you pay money for gems and gems for entry into a game of chance with a cash prize. And if it's not a game of chance then why do we keep saying RANDOM?

    Face it, the Arena opens explain the shift away from pro play, from communication between players and community also. they want us alone, at out our computer pulling the slot lever over and over again. For God's sake they have dollar signs as the logo for the event.

    Fact : Arena is a part-time unregulated online casino on the down low.

    My allegations: it is a CROOKED part-time unregulated online casino. an opinion i came to after two years of Wizards digital staff heading me off with distractions and destroying evidence and my personal data analysis using large swaths of my experiences and spreadsheets and hypergeometric calculators. your opinion comes from you wanting it to be legitimate because it would suck if they were such scumbags and accepting it unquestioned when they told you it was. not even showed You evidende to back it up. just said 'it's all good, we promise' as they post historic year over year profit percentages and totals increase at the same time. Pretty RANDOM, eh?

    So things we know about WOTC's developmental decisions with Arena vs. MTGO

    -No public leaderboards
    -Almost no communication allowed between players
    -No spectator mode, even as they claimed to be working on becoming a legitimate eSport
    -cannot share your hand or next card with yourself or opponent.
    -Instituted a 'hand smoothing' algorithm that they only mentioned to players after getting caught.
    -admit to manipulation of matchups for different formats, are obsessed with mirror matches

    Things I have documented:

    -Several hundred <2% liklihood of probability draws (complete games, not opening hands) based only on lands and non lands drawn
    -a spreadsheet tracking my play vs draw in draft only that tracks 600~ opportunities (starting fresh after they accidentally deleted my account 8 months into my personal information request that was a day away from the limit set to give me this information. ). in the 292 opportunities prior to emailing them complaining and informing them about the spreadsheet I am -30 (161 draw to 131 play for a -11 percent spread @ 55-44%). starting from my email complaint I go 18 play to 3 draws and in 231 attempts from day of complaint I go 118 play to 113 draw bringing overall spread of sample of nearly 550 attempts to 47.7 to 52.3 (4.6 percent skew of even probability.
    -hundreds of game videos that are clearly impossible from get go to win, most frequently before I reach the 'big prize jump' of an event.
    -18 months of emails before finally receiving my 'personal information ' which is some amateurish screenshots, indecipherable proprietary code and files that won't open. During which time I gave up after unreasonable paperwork demands, I battled to keep them focused on the one account I was asking about instead of interrogating me over accounts they claim were mine (they claim to keep almost no information on customers many times but are adamant they know of several other accounts with similar payment sources and ip addresses but with unrelated emails.

    on the day before they were to finally hand over this long sought after personal information my account is thoroughly, accidentally deleted. this account I've had since RNA, when there was a WHOLE lotta fucky occurrences. Blatant cover up. I am compensated with several hundred mythic wildcards as well as magically everything the old account had, including user name and number.
    -dozens of complaints from me that are responded to with a firm letter claiming the shuffler has been tested and is running exactly as intended (which I believe) and that every player has the same playing field (which I do not). ai have asked dozens of times to be directed to evidence of this, as any online casino game proudly displays on their website. these requests are NEVER acknowledged, even dozens of times in.

    feelings:

    - the game cheats and has gotten a little more obvious and brazen about it since RNA.
    -I now play bots to stop my winning any reasonable prize jump some percentage of the time.
    -in draft, if I modify my deck I will be waiting for opponent at least 30 seconds and sometimes more than one minute while deck is analyzed and appropriate opponent to lose to is selected. this never happens on ladder.
    -Wizards owes me a lot of money, that I will be collecting at some point. they can be sure of that.

    there's much more but I'm worried about losing this post in posting.
