Rolling for knowledges is probably the most unfun part of dnd. You always need information about things, so you have to roll for a ton of things, information is needed to make a choice so the only thing that happens if you succeed is your character is allowed to know the thing you need to know for you to do the roll you actually want to do, and if you fail it doesn't mean you fail it means you aren't allowed to try.

I like knowledge skills in rpgs better when what you know is more based of the passive value, and then you can roll the skill when you want to research, experiment, or investigate the thing it represents.

"Not Quite What You're After"

X-Com: Enemy Within easy iron-man mode, the first few missions were flawless victories. Suddenly at the construction site, I roll nothing but misses on all my shots and the entire squad is wiped out. I never played iron-man again.

That's because of a known mechanic in the code for the series. The probabilities shown are the base values, and the game tracks how well you're doing. Play well... and it stacks probability against you, forcing the game harder and harder until inevitable failure.

On the other side, if you do poorly, the probability will actually stack in your favor, I think. Which leaves the potential for the system to be manipulated

Virtual dice, but "dice" nonetheless... Roll20 seems to have it in for any group I'm in some nights. No matter what we do or how we do it, the dice just fail on us. Tracking a target? Fail. Attack the enemy? Fail. Medicine checks to stabilize dying party member, with literally the entire party taking their turns to try? Fail, fail, fail, fail, fail, fail

There was this time when my whole party critically failed to assassinate someone asleep.
