Yeah, sometimes a little bit of order can appear in chaos. Random stuff doesn't always behave, and not all RNGs are truly random.So I suppose a simple round-robin system may be better as it gets rid of the chance of an unlucky streak.It may also be possible to modify the RNG so that long lucky/unlucky streaks aren't possible. That may reduce the randomness of the RNG, but would improve the short term quality.Theoretically, in a true RNG you should have the same probability of having a "lucky streak" as you do an unlucky streak, and thus should be fair - but honestly, I don't think people want long streaks, so they probably should be filtered out.So yeah, you do have a valid point.
