@LottieVixen @devurandom variable reinforcement is manipulative and shitty. i don't like it muscling its way into the business of making leisure activities - it means you can't have fun playing a game without being shaken down for money, and being that you might be playing a game as escapism from living in a capitalist hellhole, that's less than ideal.
