Purely luck-based systems are bad from a user perspective but that doesn't mean they're broken.
^^^^ This.

Basically imagine that every time you RE something, it's rolling a random number 1-5. You have to get a '1' for it to RE.

The probability of RE'ing 20 things and not learning a schematic is pretty small, but it doesn't change the fact that probability each time you RE of being 1-in-5 chance.
