There's so much you can do, and all of that has to be tested, balanced and tweaked. If we wouldn't do that to the point of perfection (which we're trying) you would end up with a game with "potentials" rather than "accomplishments", and that's one thing we don't want to do. Head over to RPGDot for full story!
