I don't understand the whole ranking system. Why on Earth would you want your brute to go back to level one? If you have a good destiny, is there any reason to choose to advance a rank after winning a tournament? I'd just pick the same destiny path, so why start over?
There seems to be less brutes the higher in rank you get too, so won't that actually make the game worse with less competition? I imagine it would get harder as well, since your opponents will have had the benefit of more destiny resets and will have more experience in choosing them.
