The main thing, from gearbox, is that the patch and any loss of BAR, etc are a coincidence. Still no info on what the patch was for, but if you lose BAR, skins, etc, you would have lost them with or without the patch, and has to do with profile data corruption.
It was pretty much proven via testing that one of the early game updates was actually causing BAR resets. When you downloaded it it interrupted some loading process in the game and that would screw up your BAR since its not stored in your game save but in your profile.

My brother has this trouble and found out it seemed to be caused by him wearing the Pirate hat from the Scarlet's Booty DLC. Once he unequipped it and exited the game, afterwards he was able to join without any freezing.
Lost 62k BAR, all my heads/skins, and 2 keys. Don't mind the keys and it gave me 152 tokens to spend. I also have a bunch of the skins on mules. What I'm upset about are the Valentine and St. Patrick's skins.
How will we get those back since they weren't actual items? I know it's not a huge issue in the grand scheme of things, but we shouldn't lose that from a mandatory update.
I can get you back the Loverpalooza and Luck of the Zafords skins if you want.

I played all weekend and didn't have a single problem. Makes me think twice about rushing home to play tonight tho. I haven't purchased the expansion DLC yet so I wonder if it has something to do with that.
Edit: I do remember downloading the patch however.
