Yep. Just noticed that myself. Explanation please?
IMO, this is a carrot on the stick to generate interest because the beta particapation was starting to decline(past week has had less then 10 people online at any given time...at least when I've logged in).
This isn't due to lack of interesting content...its just that how many times can you play JUST the TEC vs. TEC and maintain interesting combat? This game's strength is in the different races themselves, and how each one plays remarkably different from the others.
No wonder everyone perked up when the advent were released. .
