I personally am saving Hardgore mode until I have every single thing unlocked and upgraded (I'm not using the coin doubler), and the regular mode is doing just fine for me at the moment. I find the difficulty to be just about right, especially when you get into Night 3 and above.

I guess that wasn't a very good response to your question. Sorry

Just noting that Hardcore Mode gives double exp AND cash

Not too much harder either, just no health regen and everything is faster (including you, the speed increase is relative).

Enemies are getting more speed boost than player.(Not going to tell exact numbers) So it will make things harder even without considering smaller reaction time and loss of health regeneration. Still my favorite mode.

Okay then :P Felt relative in the earlier stages. Definitely not relative with Monstrosity or Metusalem.

Not complaining or anything, but the Cossack General should be harder...I ran out of ranged weapons, so I would just go close to him, wait for him to throw a bomb before running away. Then he'd catch up and end up on his own bomb and kill himself over time.

He is dangerous but has bit thick head. You just outsmarted him.

Make sure you haven't got hardcore mode on? Consumable boosts may be needed to help out. Using a leveled up character with strong weapon skills helps too. Go into the battle with some extra cash saved up. Disabling auto-aim can help focus on the important enemies.

The problem is that he keeps running away before I damage 1/10 of him.

The running away is intentional, giving you a taste of the boss. After you dispatch some hordes, he will be back...
