Tier I ships in Tier II Scenario?

I have noticed that even though I have all tier I ships in my line up I am being continually launched into tier II scenarios. This started today but has happen more than a half dozen times in a row. This is very out of balance and a tier I craft has little chance for longevity in this scenario. It is very frustrating and would turn me off of the game without a doubt. I hope this is addressed as I really like the game and have high hopes for it.

I flew tier 2 in a tier 3 battle…harder to kill things, but still able to play.


It only happens once in a blue moon to me.
