Title says it all.
(I had to bloat my roster last week to even qualify for Hard-mode after I beat normal, lol)
It took some creative team building to make it to the end (One TOR team with a R8 Nest was nearly an impassable wall that I accidentally made a non-optional fight).
But I made it to the end (With no consumables used, nevertheless!), mix-and-matched a special set of data-cards, beat the final battle 3/3 (even managed a bonus feat!) and am now looking forward to trying to clean up battles and get as many feats as I can over the next week.
Having played both normal and hard mode now, I just want to say "Thanks CG!". Conquest is truly an excellent game mode - It has allowed me to enjoy a lot of my second-string teams I've picked up over the past two years, given me some creative problem solving scenarios, and overall been a blast to play through. I'm still in the process of finishing out this conquest, and already anticipating the next one.
Keep it up! I look forward to seeing what the next challenges your devs and creative team bring to the holotable for us next!
