With Signs of Carcossa out now, how is everyone finding the difficulty level (with all expansions added preferably)?

In my last few runs, I was noticing that I was getting a lot of the harder tentacle mythos and a lot less of the easy mythos cards. So decided to sorted out my cards and calculated the distribution between easy/normal/hard after each expansion. I'll add the full chart below.

Basically I've found that in the base game, the distribution of easy/normal/hard was
Yellow: 24%/52%/24%
Green: 33% each
Blue: 33% each

By the time we reached the newest expansion, it became:
Yellow: 24%/45%/32%
Green: 26%/41%/33%
Blue: 24%/41%/35%

Overall, we've either lost 7-8% from the easy category and added it to the normal category OR lost 7-8% from the normal category and added it to the hard category. Not as drastic as I have been experience but a general increase in difficult nonetheless.

I don't use random mythos deck, so difficulty is the same as I choose what it will be. I.E. if i have to pick 9 yellow mythos, I pick 2 hard 2 easy and 5 normal.
