Thanks, @wheresbildo for taking the time to post and share your feedback with us.
I do not believe that it would be possible to change how the game works online but I will pass your feedback on to the team.
Thank you for the response. Personally I believe this feature should be in most games as EA is known for taking down servers. The real kicker was putting this game in EA access knowing the servers were down.
I've only played it in single player in the Xbox One @wheresbildo and been quite enjoying it. I actually think that I played through all three games by myself and only tried with another player once or twice.
I will pass your feedback on to the team.
