So if I see a bike unlocked I'm allowed to take it?
People playing hero ships in T4 are abusers and deserve no mercy, they ruin a lot of games of a lot of people. They know they will get matched up with lower ranks so they play it to get easy wins, they are ruining it on purpose. On the other hand, people that simply unlocked their T3 and T4 ships are as much a victim as the T1 and T2 players.
Using Hero Ship =/= theft.
What's silly is saying, "Hey, you can't use that thing you paid money for because it's worse for free users." If you have your bike which you paid for, you shouldn't have to walk because most of us are. If anything, your line of thinking is closer to theft since it condemns and suggest forbidding the use of something they have every right to use. I understand your outrage, but please direct it at the closer source: the system.
The issue resides in the system for three primary reason:
1. Low population.
2. Larger amount of players required for matches.
3. Match making designed to allow cross-bracket (different from cross-tier) matching.
1 & 2 simply don't mix, and it was a shocking choice to make. It simply wasn't the right time to implement the second, even if it is a good idea. The third, however, is outright disappointing and short-sighted. It provides a "fix" for 1 & 2, but makes the experience miserable and is outside of what they had seemed to indicate would exist: three separate brackets.
When I first played, I went with T1 for the experience. Oh, I have T4's, I simply chose not to dive into them right out of the gate. Once I learned of this cross-bracket match making, I just stopped playing entirely. It wasn't enjoyable for me to play T1's, and I refused to simply join the other side of the stomping. Don't assume T4's have knowledge of the broken system by default; I didn't. Don't assume they're being bullies; you don't know. And don't ever, ever, suggesting taking away what people have paid for: they invested in the future of this game and got burned just the same as you.
