Here's my rational for this assumption: 1. The final steps for atomic are being taken to allow for testing as shown in this tweet from NerdofPrey 2. People will want to buy power respec tokens in anticipation, after seeing (certainly amazing) gameplay, so in order to make more people spend money, they had this %50 off sale. This makes people spend their loyalty points or MC cash and therefor, once they see game play, have to spend ever more. I'm not criticizing this, it makes good business sense, as we get a sale out of it! 3. There will be a random let's play of the new content tomorrow (thursday 10/1/15 for those in the future) and since the final testing of the power happened today (wednesday) they would probably want to show it off as quickly as possible. 4. According to Mepps in this thread, test server will be free to access for this weekend, allowing people to get a taste for atomic before it goes live, and making those involved all the more pumped to get this on their actual characters. What do you guys think? Is this a reasonable assumption? Are you guys as excited as I am?!
