Problem with ranger was that a lot of features relate to the environment. Not easily translatable to a video game. Like Natural Explorer - that is a feature relating to long distance travel and BG3 does not.

So there needs to be some changes to Ranger regardless.

I'm currently playing a half-elven female Ranger Knight that dual-wields and will have to admit that she kicks some series ass on the battlefield.
