Opinions about the P2P connection is different for each player and has caused a debate on Reddit. Mainly, most people think that dedicated servers are much better.
“Not ideal, but not as bad as when PVP games don’t have dedicated servers. A lot of people like to reference For Honor or recent titles, but for me, Destiny always come to mind as almost unplayable multiplayer because of Peer-to-Peer.” -ShesJustAGlitch
“Not as bad when it mainly is a single player game, but p2p is still shit for anything other than 1v1.” -sceptical_dick
While others are not taking sides, they are explaining the pros P2P.
“Not many games actually use P2P because it is hard to implement correctly, in certain situations and if done correctly P2P can be better than host/client, but it always differs from game to game.” -dekenfrost
The Multiplayer Beta was canceled as announced previously. It may also have something to do with the connection.
