I am not a dice complainer. However, I get sick and tired of the abuse these individuals have to endure when they exercise their right to protest. I almost liken dice complainers to the poor smokers standing on the stoop in -20 degree weather. I'm suggesting that, like smokers, dice complainers are just victims of circumstance.
Another thing that bothers me about dice complainer antagonists is that they so predictably post said dice complainer's dice stats as if this is undeniable proof that they are full of shit. This just isn't so and to claim otherwise is just as shortsighted as the antagonists are accusing the complainers to be.
Fact one: Simply rolling average dice does not ensure average game evenness
When you roll dice, the coincidence of good rolls at those times when you most need them is the key to success. If one rolls disgusting puke shit dice for the first half of a game and sparkling beatiful dice the second half, one's rolls come out average but the game will most certainly be a loss. Therefore timing of one's dice is arguably many times more important than one's average. This is not a new concept yet people continue to post the complainer's average dice as evidence that they are basically insane. If there were something crooked going on, the masterminds wouldn't be so stupid as to just give a player awful dice all the time. That would be far too traceable.
Fact two: The randomness of atmospheric noise, while generally accepted, is not an undeniable truth AKA The Cat is Mweauwing Theory
Who the hell really knows where this atmospheric noise is taken from specifically? Could it be from a rooftop where on the street someone starts their car at exactly 2:30AM every morning, creating a string of sixes that causes anyone who takes their turn at the corresponding moments to have their troops fight, however temporarily, as though they were high on PCP?
Fact three: Conspirocies do exist.
Just because the odds of rds watching my game and holding down a button that suppresses my dice rolls to 3 or less are very slim doesn't mean it's not possible. Do you trust the government implicitly? If not, why do you trust conquer club whose curtain is far more heavy?
So I beg you, put yourself in the dice complainer's shoes. These people seem sane enough in their rants as you would expect someone whose dice fail, time after time, just when they need them. And even if they are just paranoid, irrational, or simply plum crazy, what good does ridicule do in cases such as those?
Are you a gambling person? Because in the 1 in 1000 chance that the dice complainers are actually onto some real phenomenon, those who were sooo extremely confident that the dice were definitely and absolutely random will look infinitely more ridiculous than the complainers acting from the duress of frustration. Until there is a dice tracking system advanced enough to determine when a player gets dice when he/she needs them, I suggest any dice complainer antagonists keep a lid on their patronizing tones.
