Monster Challenge Ratings

I've played and run in a number of 5e sessions so far and it's going very well, with one exception.   Combat still seems too easy, with many adventures ending with the players barely harmed at all...

Why Does 5e have to Release this Way?

But I have one big beef with it:  they are releasing the Basic rules on July 3rd, but they will...

One problem I have with...
