Is it just my imagination, or is the alien activity significantly more frequent in EW (at least at Classic and higher)? This is my second attempt at a Classic play through on EW and I just can't seem to get ahead. I'm getting abductions, UFO's, terror missions, and council missions every couple of days. Any time someone is sent to the infirmary (and I do mean literally any time), it is extremely rare that I don't go through at least 2 missions without them. I'm finding it impossible to get anything done because every squad I'm sending out gets slagged, so I can't get anybody ranked up. I can't even get someone ranked up high enough to unlock the Officer School. At least in Enemy Unknown, I was in pretty good shape once I figured out how to play smart. In this one, I'm not even being given a chance.
