I'm not sure if this will be received, but I hope so. The new leveling and encumbered system is not that fun to deal with.
I'll talk about leveling first. I like how much simpler it became, but I really don't like how limited you are. And if it could be considered to change/fix leveling, then it would fix my backpack issue too. I would like if the perks were not limited by your level. It would be nice to bum rush the strength/ pack mule if that's something I decided to do. Level 100 is a bit crazy for just having my entire backpack available. I also was wanting to rush into intellect by 4 or 5 so that I can go ahead and get the workbench and forge... but again I'm limited by my level. If I want to sacrefice being weaker in other aspects so I can get something else, that would be really nice!
A bit more on the encumbered system. I know its a personal hang up I have, but I really don't like being slower than I already am. The armor weighing down is so frusterating, I dont wear it at all.
Its not even much, but honestly, these problems are just a huge pet peeve for me. So much so I'm going to have to continue to play in 16. I'm really just not having fun constatntly being reminded im over encombered or that I cant get perks the way I would like. I was obsessed with this game, but now I find it hard to even play. I really hope this is considered. I understand if not. I'll keep playing 16 if it comes down to it.
Thank you for all the work thus far!
