Note: If you just got the game play every mission on normal mode before playing Advanced.
I’m not sure if someone has really made something like this, I looked and didn’t really see one so I decided after weeks of frustrating matches that I would share whatever knowledge I have on the subject.
First I want to state a few basic things that may seem obvious to some but are most certainly not obvious to most.
1.) Advanced mode is hard.
This may seem obvious but some people don’t seem to get that coming into it.
2.) Difficulty scales with the amount of players involved.
For whatever reason 4 players seems to be the optimal number for maximum difficulty without absolute absurdity. 5 players is nearly impossible with a group of randoms unless you are on the Sentinel which is in my opinion the easiest mission in the game.
3.) Some Battleborn may not be usable in this mode.
You may notice that many people prefer to play tanks in this mode, that is because the enemies are very strong and Ronin bots like to make you call them daddy before killing you. More on this subject later.
4.) Supports exists
At least one of you needs to pick one, It’s just a fact unless you have a team of all sustain characters and even then it’s important to have one.
5.) Some enemies are five times more powerful than they were in normal mode.
The aforementioned Ronin bots are evil incarnate, the Varelsi as a whole are much more potent, and evolved thralls will annihilate almost any character if they are surrounded.
This might get a bit long so I’ll post this up and just make my following posts a continuation.
