The trope should be renamed considering it mostly focuses on the factions, and the name could refer to the player instead.

Agreed. Faction Calculus already exists for this kind of thing, though. The content in question might as well be moved to that trope instead.

The Ranger faction might need a bit of a rename as the trope Ranger has more in common with the eletist than long-range fighter.

Also, I would like to see a separate category for factions that specialize in long range attacks and those that specialize in hit and run tactics as they arent always the same.

For instance, in Dawn of War: Soulstorm both the Tau and Dark Eldar are ranger factions by the current definitions, though not all that similar. The Tau rely mostly on long range firepower while the Dark Eldar rely on hit and run tactics.

Protoss: In SC 2, they are a technical faction. They rely on the sentry's abilities, and later on templar/colossus to make up for their base-line unit's high cost and (relatively) low damage.
