Fix The Dice Rolls.
I understand that rolling a 7 on two die is 1/6 chances. But you do not literally have to stick to that number. Ive played the board game numerous times and the number 7 NEVER gets rolled this many times. The game literally aim to constantly have at least 10-20 7's rolled. in 60 dice throws. Give dice that actually roll instead of having it based on literal statistics.
I challenge a few people to do this: Show me a game where its 60+ rolls and there is below 10 7's rolled.
Record yourself rolling 2 actual die and compare between the games rolls and your own physical rolls.
This needs to be pushed up. The algorithm is completely flawed, in that I assume they take the statistical probability of the dice roll, however I've never seen this happen in really life as much as in the game where if you have 8+ cards and it's your roll, you will hit a 7. Seems like they are trying to extent the length of the game, which is completely stupid since we already have a lot of slow players (and no, they are not "methodical"). It really ruins the game, longer length of time isn't always better, just ask your girlfriends (your right hands).
This is another case, but ridiculous too.
Not a single 8 in 54 rolls would happen in 0.03% of the games. So once in ~3200 games. Given the amount of games played, this is plausible. Catan is a 30-50% luck based game. The higher the player skill levels, the more luck comes into play.
