Yeah just turning it back on without a fix will be bad, the lag will be back and the ingame economy ruined. But we need a temp fix very fast.
Did read the posts discord, and just remember that most you talked with there is the old veterans both PvE, crafters and PvPers.
As a returning player in a clan with lots of low level players the limit on weight is the major problem for em all, as there is lots of things a new player need to craft both to gear up, make ammo and doing quests. And as a low level player the weight limit is 50kg, that's 2 stacks of any ore or metals. It limits most to just stand around in a craft shop to see the timer tick down as the bag is full and you cant quest or gather. This will drive players away.
A temp solution is needed ASAP, or all the new players trying out the game will leave, it picked up lots of players with Little Orbit taking over.
Increasing base weight limit is 1 solution, or lowering the weight off all the materials is another, but that is 100s of items to edit.
