I myself have a garbage can laptop and using hotspot shield it worked. If you have pirated an elite version of hotspot shield like I did before it might not even connect let alone working. download the free of earliest version of hotspot shield and connect. it’ll most likely work as it did for me with my laptop I thought I would never be able to play anything online.
If your hotspot shield says “something went wrong” (https://www.techistech.com/hotspot-shield-something-went-wrong/) this site with the second method helped me it might help you too.
If it didn’t work, I’m really sorry as I did what I could. Bye now, I’m gonna enjoy the game (if damn connection doesn’t die every second.)
