Been sitting here for about 3omins waiting for a lobby to do some hardcore spotlight to work towards my achievements and no one seems to be playing it. All the other games modes have players but this certain one seems dead…
Really hard to get anyone to do Tempest HC.
I don’t mind but getting someone to join you is difficult.
It’s probably dead as you surmised.
Doing advanced public, is already a bit of a gamble on success rate. So adding hardcore mode into the equation just ensures (for most) that it will end up being a bust.
If you’re out to complete some challenges, it’s best to reach out here or a chat room on your respective console and seek out other like-minded players.
If all else fails you can always go it alone.
Frankly, if you want to do advanced hardcore you’re better off posting for a party either in the relevant sub-forum here or on the unofficial discord (or both). I’ve tried the adv. hc spotlight queue a few times, and only once did I actually find a group who knew what they were doing and didn’t all die in the first 5 minutes.
True, trying to give tips on the first part of Helio so you don’t loose all the lives isn’t fun.
