LAN option does not work offline

Why have a LAN option when it does not work when the servers are down? Please fix.
Thank you.

Absolutely, please fix this, at least when the connection time outs stay on the multiplayer screen so we can click the lan option. It defaults back to the main screen currently and loops.

Hay,
Indeed it’s not … good ?
Sadly the multiplayer tab, also forces the game to send everything through the server… like chat messages.
In order to maintain peace , and the ability to ban people who abuse the chat, or cheat in multiplayer, they need to have it server sided.

This was not the way with the complete edition before DE came out and went completely online for multiplayer. We could chat just fine with Lan players without big brother.

This change is very intentional and I doubt Microsoft would back down from it.
