Can remove basically any of "this game's rng seems to favor the enemy", with any actual proof (a line in the games code, a fan studying the odds with 95% certian or higher, etc) that this ACTUALLY the case, not just people's recollection bias which I'm pretty sure about 99% of them are.

In the A Gift of Magic listing, how does telepathy - the ability to read and send thoughts - affect the characters ability to draw random cards from a deck?

Another commons statistics mistake. Is there a name for this?

Equal probability fallacy: Assuming that, if there are X possibilities, every possibility has a (100/X)% chance of happening, even when the probabilities are obviously not equal. Often seen as "There's a 50% chance that this will happen: either it will or it won't." Probability doesn't work this way, as can be shown by simply putting something obviously absurd (or obviously inevitable) in place of "this".
