I've always been under the impression that the ranger was a solo, high damage dealing individual with keen senses. The way the ACG game plays makes this idea interesting, as it is a constant stack of duals (a departure of which would be welcomed from time to time)... In the base set the rogue plays like my vision of a ranger, as the ACG rogue is lethal and independent however a rogue tends to be extremely fragile. They work best with a group whereas the ranger is truly a loner spending years wandering solo in the woods with nothing but his wits and animal companion. I think the class decks are a great way to explore these other possibilities, but I'm saddened by the chosen direction at this juncture. A ranger who hunts mages is novel, and two dwarfen rangers is near-to heresy. I wish I were more intune with Pathfinder lore so I could understand why these choices have been made, but alas I am not.
I love the pathfinder ACG and I think you guys have done an excellent job! I hope you keep it up and I look forward to what will come. However, as an individual who has always played rangers and ranger classes in nearly every game prior, I will stick to other classes in this game as I see no option which fits (perhaps the mainstream) my vision of a ranger
