Here’s the problem, the game has never been rigged in favor of the AI, never. Not even once, or even a day.
I understand Serale’s frustrations even if they were spoken a little rudely. People don’t recognize recall bias, it’s entirely subconscious, so unless you’re playing the game with the sole intent of counting every lucky cascade you make, you won’t know how well you’re actually doing.
People complain about the AI cheating, when really it’s just that they rolled a slot machine and by chance got triple cherries. This has been a frequent complaint since the games creation apparently, and it’ll likely continue until the games inevitable end, unless an easy mode is added that prevents the AI from getting any matches from falling gems, period.
Even the console versions are the same except there’s no combo-breaker there, so every drop is 100% random, not planned or calculated.
I’m not mad, I understand we don’t recognize our own faults, and instead choose to blame what we can’t control, that’s normal, even I’ve done it. It doesn’t make it any less frustrating when people ask for the AI to be fixed when it, in fact, plays in our favor if anything.
I’ll take solace in the knowing that I’ve never felt cheated by the AI. Annoyed? Certainly. But cheated? Never.
