I could test some other servers. What is happening is, first they rarely show up in the server list. I have to quit the game and restart. Then when they do show up they time out before logging me on. Then once on they frequently time out and I am booted and server lost connection is reported and the process starts over.
Perhaps crash was the wrong word since I am not sure why they report a lost connection. My connection is fine and at 40-80 ping usually. No other online games are disconnecting. Just Conan Exiles.
So I tested some other servers I am not playing on.
1588 had 8 players and there was no delay in logging on.
1945 had 22 players and there was no delay in logging on to it.
1944 had 10 players and there was no delay in logging on, I got right in, created a character, ran around a bit.
1742 had 0 players and it timed out the first time then logged me in after I restarted the game.
1754 had 0 players and I can’t log on, many attempts.
1876 had 0 players and does not even show up in the server list 8 out of 10 attempts.
So the active servers are available, the inactive servers are bugged. This only started after the last update, but is significantly worse this week.
