And this explains exactly how the "online is rigged" enthusiasts think.
They forget all the times their aces won (because it was expected), but sure as heck remember when they lost(unexpected).
So when they try and think about their experience playing online, all they can remember are the "unexpected" outcomes and thus online is rigged according to them.
