Don't let the developers limit you.

When the game EVE Online was made, there were certain professions the developers included to insure people could make money in the game. That hasn't stopped the player base from finding new ways though! The rise of freeform professions has seen a rise with the political events of the game. What is a freeform profession you ask? It's any profession you take that isn't one the developers made for the game.

In my early days in EVE, I noticed a shortage of research labs in the game and decided to capitalise on it. I flew around the fringes of empire space renting all the available labs and then sold them on to players for a huge profit. Going from a run-of-the-mill miner to a self-made real estate agent made me realise that EVE was something really special.

Many stories like this one have happened throughout the EVE universe. Check out some good examples here.
