I really have no idea how Mercenary Ranking works. You have to be picky about what missions you accept if you want to stay high rank, it's not really about skill.
I've joined order missions where I took near no damage and did most the work, and it brought my rank down still. =/
I've done some Story missions where I took near no damage and did all the work and it brought my rank down. And sometimes it brought my rank up to B or A.
All I know is whenever I've seen a Mercenary in A or S Ranks... they usually always decline a mission invite. Only way you stay in those ranks is if you're very picky about the missions you pull. Ones with high reward, and near no expense I guess. Like the AC battle order missions.
I usually always got a merc to join those when I was farming money off them, especially the easier ones that gave a lot of money for one or two easy AC kills.
