SECCON balance at tier 3 ruined after update

After the recent update the balance is completely off at the tier 3 seccon. Instead of facing ships up to rank 9 we see rank 17 ships facing us frequently.

This is just unbalanced and completely takes out the fun of tier 3 seccon. Please change it back like how it was, why fix something that is not broken? 

is this gonna get fixed soon? you are losing players because of this

The developers wanted to improve the queuing times for sector conquest, so that’s why they enlarged the matchmaking pool by eliminating T4 and Tier vs Tier. I can understand why they did it - and for me (daily seccon player) the loading times improved DRASTICALLY. I don’t know if it ever will get fixed, but I agree with you that T3 should exclusively fight the same tier. Even though the Tier 3 ships get a substantial buff to r17 stats when fighting in T5.

From the patch notes there should be two tiers - 7-10 and 11-17. If you are facing R17 in R9s I would log a bug.

It is not a log bug, we face R17 consistantly, we havent been in a match since the update without at least half of the players having r15> ships and we also facing tier 5 dreadnoughts which have much more powerfull weapon arrays. In a R9 kite for example you almost get oneshotted by the T5 weapon arreys. Also T5 ships have access to many modules that just break the T3 gameplay
