Buff Ranger?

As it stands, it seems to me that the Ranger is a rather lackluster lvl3 unit. This occurred to me while playing a campaign, my Ranger got properly toasted by a lvl 2 longbowman at dawn. I think his main problem is just how little damage he is dealing during day, the 5-4 is not impressive.
Perhaps boosting his ranged attack to 8-4?

Default multiplayer is balanced! The default multiplayer era (consisting of Loyalists, Rebels, Northerners, Knalgans, Drakes, and Undead) is almost perfectly balanced. Any suggestions that want to change this balance are almost guaranteed to be instantly shot down. If you attempt such a suggestion, you had better provide thorough research.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Alrighty then

Maybe I'll commit some thorough research but it is what it is

Hejnewar would be the person to talk to about changing unit balance. Not all level three units are meant to be able to fight each other 1v1 though.
