In one corner we have your assumption.
In the other corner we have my fact ("no one, not anyone in the biggest guilds, has come forth claiming to so much as know a winner."
I'm not saying that this fact is 100% proof that the jackpot is unattainable, but it is some concrete proof supporting my argument.
You have offered nothing but assumptions.
I don't think that they're bad assumptions under normal circumstances, but you can look around and easily find Tombola winners, guys who have won Generals or Gurus from ELO
, etc etc. You can track down lots of people who have managed to win very unlikely things. The fact that you can't track down a jackpot winner is cause for alarm.
You are completely correct -- the UR staff are well within their rights to do whatever they like with the slot machine, and I have heard some people make the argument that the slot machine is supposed to be in a Montana
casino, so from a "story" point of view it would make sense if it was rigged.
But just because the staff are in their right to do something doesn't make it fair.
You could wake up one day and find every single card you like permanently changed to a 1/1.
That would be something that the developers are within their right to do. Nevertheless, it wouldn't be fair to the players.
I personally wasted a valuable resource trying to win that jackpot while I was running my guild's lotto pool. That resource was my time. If the jackpot can't be won, that's not fair.
