Apparently a big "balancing" patch tomorrow. Here is todays patch. Haven't seen much talk of an apparent wipe (no biggy to me either way).
We've released a new patch
Please restart your clients and Community Servers to make sure they receive the latest update to the game.
Removed network congestion from big buildings, reducing lag
Disabled random NPC taunts during combat
Fixed an issue with some players getting stuck after character creation
Fixed a bug where loading screens disappear (showing main menu or the world)
Fixed incorrect settings on port values for servers, making it less likely you will be disconnected when entering a new server
Added a “Show full servers” checkbox to the server window
Introduced a possible fix for building pieces not loading properly
Graphics driver check on startup, encouraging you to update if needed
Several other minor tweaks and improvements
Fixed thralls resetting on server restart. The issue occured if people picked up then placed their thralls again. They weren't being saved.
We thank you for your patience as we continue to improve and update Conan Exiles.
