It is. If I have the numbers, I know my shirt is 3 shirts behind that shirt. So that means if I buy 3 shirts I stay, he goes. However, if the numbers show I'm 5 shirts behind, I may not want to do that.
If I don't have ANY numbers, I either have to create hundreds of accounts, and keep buying 1 shirt per account until I break that, or randomly guess and buy, and hope I don't overshoot and cost myself the extra shirt.
But in the YEAR Narfcake ran numbers, I don't think there was more than 2 calls of "game", so it may never have been that common to begin with. Variable scale for new shirts and non-RealTime_DSR account for most of the wonky late week movement we see.
