I got 11 failures in a row which is approximately 1 in 10.5 million.

Now I get that a 1 in 10.5 million still has that chance. But it happened twice in 45 minutes. And it was a phenomenon that people have noticed in the past.
The RNG totally changed since the r.g.r.a days. Maybe twice. It's just confirmation bias.
