How many subcatagories do you have represented in Ring Generalship? Is it a ranking of each individual fighter's assets such as speed, strength, durability, counterpunching ability, etc.
I changed "Adversity Overcome" to "Character" and may rename it again to "Intangibles"...

The subcategories will be loosely identified, but I don't want to get too mathematical about it, and apply %s and all that. So, there will have to be a measure of subjectivity but at least I'll know it's informed...! Ring Generalship is level of skill, athleticism, adaptability/tactical ability and strategic capability. "Durability" is in its own, lesser category.

Does that sound fair...?
