    It's not that people can reach that level, because we are explicitly allowing that. What we must do, however, is limit the availability of the highest level of gain by both rarity and time to achievement. If we offer the top prize immediately or with little investment in play, or offer that prize in too high an availability you run into a situation where the bar is being achieved too quickly. We have a number of ways to combat this, the primary being item decay and making sure the most powerful items don't stay around forever.
