It's seemed to me like the monsters were definitely harder. Sectoids that used to always go down in 1 human pistol/rifle shot now often take 3, floaters resist laser pistol/rifle shots, cyberdiscs take alot more work, etc. Yet, I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm still playing on beginner. I want to confirm that I'm not so it stops bothering me.
I recently took down a medium scout with snakemans in it. My men killed two snakemans and the mission ended: 2 aliens killed, 8 alien corpses found. Medium scouts have 3-6 aliens in beginner difficulty, 6-9 on superhuman. Does this mean that I'm definitely on superhuman, or are crash sites computed differently?
Here's the source for how many snakemans a medium scout has:
