There are a multitude of serious problems with the 3x encumbrance, and I would strongly advise this "feature" be pulled before Thursday. One example from tonight: I clearly am *not* over weight. The issue arises if you try to pick up an object the game already knows the weight of. In this case, I picked up the chest on the table. It weighs several thousand pounds. The first time I could pick it up and put it in my inventory (and then the game calculated the weight). Then I set it down on the table, and tried to pick it up again and got this error, because the game applies the weight the moment you grab it with your mouse, *not* when it's actually in your inventory. Another issue is that I can no longer "take all" from the majority of the containers I have storing items, if the game knows the total weight of the items in the container. Another issue is that of disappearing items when crafting. If you are at your weight limit, you will lose any items you craft. In the following example, I just lost my 2 timber I created. Note the big red server error as it destroyed my items.
