Eventually it became a thing of "simcraft", like determining mastery to be superior as a stat, or determining specific "caps" or targets for dps classes to aim for.

The dev that's looking at code and a ton of other things can benefit from the guinea pig (us) running his maze a few times and breaking their stuff..... like a rat eating a hole in the maze wall to get at the cheese.
