Proceeding really well in my classic ironman mode. I have two Colonial's and the other two are majors. Finding (touch wood) that the going is much easier once your squad and equipment are upgraded. I also went in with a plan. I Consciously said to myself that I was only going to protect the countries on the left of the Sat screen, bugger the rest. So now I have almost all the left countries with sat's, the majority of them are at blue level. I lost all but two countries on the right, but they are also blue.

I just restarted my 3rd game on Normal. The first time I had way too many countries in panic mode, so I started over. Then I was defeated in my second attempt. On my newest attempt I'm trying to get as many satellites up as possible.

Well, I think I'm up to my 25th classic ironman game, most of which haven't made it past the first 2 months.

Had a couple of good runs up to about mutons/discs before getting slaughtered.

I found this research chart - http://i.imgur.com/7Cqxm.jpg

A couple of other hints/tips I've found helpful for the early game (or at least as far as I've found it:
  • Reseach alien materils before you recruit any new rookies - if you have, they all join you with two extra health.
  • Get Carapace armour as soon as you can - if nothing else it makes that first terror mission a bit easier.
  • Interrogate a sectoid as early as possible for the 50% research credit on beam weapons (mutons need more than those flimsy automatic weapons).
  • Don't be afraid to use grenades. Weapon fragmants are nice. Keeping troops alive to make the most of the next promotion is better.

Im doing quite well in ironman classic. Ive got all my countries after three months, good cash flow but im losing one or two soldiers per mission and that is making missions hard. Im unsure if this has me behind the curve or not at this point.

Can I take that back.

I have heaps of money and every facility anyone could dream for but I lost my crack squad so now I've got all rookies. I lost my rookie squad twice. That means I've lost my entire squad three times over now.

I'll persist but all I can do now is shoot down craft. I can't even take out a squad of thin men. I am researching titan armour so maybe I can build them up again.
