Enemy scaling that gradually outpaces the player as their toon levels up. Instead:
Very Easy = Enemy/Player comparitive strength is levels 1-15 Easy = 16-25 Normal = 26-40 Hard = 41-50 Very Hard = UVHM
Well incase you havent noticed... Easy - Normal Mode - Enemies are lv 30ish Medium - TVHM - Enemies are lv 50ish Hard - UVHM - Enemies match player or +2 players lv. So yeah... you're BSing over nothing.
