As a lot of people are probably aware Wolcen’s game launch has garnered a lot of negative feedback due to their server issues (along side many bugs) and a huge part is because similar to Last Epoch, their plan was to have online server play and offline single player only and because people want to play with others not many people want to touch offline in that game resulting in a backlash.
I feel like in a game like this an option to play p2p or local co-op for the “offline” characters would allow people like myself who don’t care about server features/ladders/etc to play with their friends without worrying about the server state (be it instability or when however long down the road the project gets put down) . I can only see it as a benefit to have this option especially since it would prolong the games lifespan similar to how torchlight 2 was/is played by people still (even more so if offline mode mod support becomes a thing waay down the road)
So what are other’s thoughts on this? I’m personally fine with the server setup to avoid cheaters/hackers I would just like a way to play with friends that doesn’t require the server though.
