This is just another thread to plea for the implementation of a pause mode.
With kids around at home it is really important to be able jump away from the computer at any moment. In Grim Dawn I just hit Esc, could go away from the computer to take care of the kids and return to pick up playing right at the same in-combat spot, . When I do the same in Last Epoch I will return to a dead character. And opening a portal instead feels just clumsy.
Please implement a pause function and I am sure anybody with kids playing your game will approve of this.
