The number of ranks you can jump in one battle has a weird discontinuity at #10. If you are rank 10, you can only fight 9, 8 or 7. But if you are 11, you can snipe anyone from 10 to 2. This causes a lot of bouncing around and makes it very hard to hold a position.
It would make more sense to have the ranges more gradually decrease in size. Being #11 instead of #10 shouldn't provide a huge tactical advantage.
Quit 7/14/16. Best of luck to all of you.
