Got this email:
Seems containers have already begun the decaying process. Players might want to risk patch day lest they risk losing all the items they have in their houses.
I haven’t seen any confirmation on this on Dev Board and other usual haunts of distraught players. However you may want to jump on and arrange your booty stash.
You all did make sure and take Patch Day off from work, right?
[UPDATE] Doesn’t look like this rumor is correct, haven’t gotten any further confirmation.
