I just lost two of my best assault troopers in one mission. Definitely making the next few tough as I work on two new guys
I was playing Classic Ironman and was doing okay but was never able to get any engineers which pretty much prevented me from building any useful equipment.


Had a few false starts with more Classic difficult, then eventually went with Classic Normal and have been doing a lot better (the strategic campaign is where I notice most of the difficulty reduction).

I have gone to bed at pretty much 4 AM every day this week since it's been released.

It's easily the best game I've played this year.
