Tier breaches in New Conquest (SecCon)

Today our corp in t3 sector and with a corp dreadnought of tier 3 (t3) faced players from xRDSx and BEAST flying t5 Tharga (rank 15) and t4 Sawtooth (rank 11)  ships.

How can it be? Un-naturally, their effectiveness ratings were -as to be expected- 10 times higher than gained by any other ship in our SecCon battles.

This is unsportsmanlike behavior.

Is this a bug or a feature?


P.S.: Normally my frigate:engineer Phoenix with Phoenix drones is  a good and fair match to t3 Tharga ships (because most of them are not pro-builds). Against a r15 Thar’ga controlled by a pro player it is cannon fodder, skills do not even matter.
