After the arrival of yesterday’s RIFT Patch 2.1, players found themselves unexpectedly dropped down to 0 accrued Conquest Power. This effect was unintended by Trion, and Elrar made this statement later in the afternoon regarding it:

We know that with Update 2.1 being released in North America this morning an inadvertent issue was discovered that caused all Conquest Power accrued to reset to 0.
Unfortunately, there is no easy or immediate way for us to restore individual amounts – so in accordance with the new season, and to provide the most rapid solution possible, we’ve gone ahead and provided 100,000 free Conquest power to everyone.
This is 50% of the total conquest power you can earn and maintain. This payout of Conquest Power will be made when you enter your first round of Conquest following my post here.
Our apologies for the surprise and frustration this has caused – thanks for bringing it to our attention so quickly!
This is rather unfortunate for players who had farmed up to the 200k maximum Conquest Power right before Storm Legion launched, but at least Trion quickly made note of the blunder and has provided a sort of middle-of-the-road solution.
