I just now even tested by creating a new character on a random testlive server. created the character and left the game completely. then went back to steam and started it again, clicked continue on the launcher, then I was indeed brought to the menu but the game almost instantly got a message, attempting to join the game and a few seconds later loaded my testlive server.
with my singleplayer, i dont even get to see the old menu just the usual loading screens (UE4, Nvidia, etc. )
What are we doing differently, I cant see what you see
