normal was cake if you played smart. you don't spread you guys out - they need to stick together to provide supporting fire. it takes longer to finish missions, but you're almost guaranteed to win. on my normal/ironman playthough i lost 2 guys i think, and those were to bonkers lucky long distance shots behind cover.

I agree, the game does a good job of rewarding real-world squad tactics like overlapping fields of fire, 10 foot spacing (to avoid a grenade taking out your entire squad), combined arms (you should always have heavy, assault, and sniper with squadsight to handle different situations), etc. The only time I break up my squad is on terror missions, and it's extremely risky.
