BSG hasn’t revealed the contents of this update, but judging from the recent statements, we could state that it serves to improve the performance of Lighthouse. Remember that the next wipe is supposed to introduce us to the Lighthouse expansion, and these early tweaks could substantiate much better performance in the future.
This update could introduce a new wave of events as we’re nearing the wipe. We have reached BSG for a comment and have been told that it’s just another technical update without any specifics. If something surfaces, we’ll definitely update this article.
