The ITS ranking means practically nothing. It's a measure of how many events you play in not how good you are. Last season I racked up a tonne of elo just playing 8-16 player events. The simple fact we were playing at least one reported event per month was enough to inflate my elo to stupid levels. I've played and beaten the guy ranked 18. It doesn't mean he's the 18th best player in the world not even close. I wouldn't even call him the 18th best player in the country. The ITS elo isn't properly curated to provide an actual effective ranking system, this isn't like say tennis where being ranked number 1 actually means something. If your opponent is letting you explode a bunch of remotes in his backline you guys either need more terrain, or he needs a crash course in deployment. You also should think twice before giving your opponent a 42% chance to stun your attack piece on drop, and you also need to do some math on how tough you think the Liu Xing is. A BS11 combi rifle toting line infantry shitkicker decides to go around a corner and sweep your liu xing that got stunned the turn before out of their backline they're 56% to knock a wound in him per order. God forbid something actually combat capable decides to murder your nearly 40pt investment. It doesn't have to be a hacker heavy army. As I have already pointed out, the presence of a single hacker would've been enough to completely stymie a Liu Xing's attempt at aggression.
