Getting put in Vet fights even though I started as recruit

So I'm an up and coming player. Exploring the tier 2 range of ships, nothing fully upgraded yet. I start matching for any, in recruit fleet. Sometimes (last night it was EVERY fight), I end up in a vet fight however. I have only access to my recruit fleet I have.

Why is this happening? Why can't I seem to play recruit games anymore?

It's not fun to die from t4s and t3s with my half upgraded t2. Given, it makes me stay with the team and practice good group skills, but it's still frustrating.

sigh migs really?
regardless of the version (pc/ps4): if you havent got a single t1 ship in your fleet > you are automaticaly matched vs t3/4 opponents when playing t2 ships

this means that the only way to guarantee you wont be facing t3/4 opponents = keep at least 1 T1 ship in your recruit fleet at all times.
it's a known 'isuse' that's working as intended

I'm ok with this solution for the time being BUT.. how do I stop that T1 ship "stealing" experience?

you cant stop it 'stealing' experience, since it's not stealing exp

it's not like your main ship gets less exp if the t1 is there, it's just every ship in your fleet gets a bit of extra bonus experience each battle

No. Actually it does steal experience. Which is annoying. But OP, it's worse in T4 when you're forced to use certain ships to counter other players. One guy I talked to has 2million XP assigned to ships he can't use it on....

Just like how maintenance was "working as intended" for over 6 months before they finally admitted how stupid an idea that was. And still haven't fixed it yet. And just like how the tier system itself is "working as intended" even though it's probably the single worst attempt at a tier system in the history of the gaming industry. And that's even if we ignore that having a tier system was a bad idea in the first place even if it had been done well.

the workaround with t1 ship is well know my people who play longer than a week. but still almost every game in vet mode a few t2 show up. (mostly somehow on my team while the other got a few more t4 sigh, and after 3 games lost this way 1 game i get teh pubstomping team, yeah it suxx, sadly).

so when u say it "well known" i hope it gets fixed, sooner better than later, before i leave, or others leave, or just new players get annoyed by it, since the game is fun occasionally and could be more often even.

I use T2 ships in T3/4 battle to annoy people who dont play properly.
I feel some people think they will get more xp from playing against higher tier opponents. I tried it myself but when it was apparent that just doesnt happen I stop. I only really use a tier 2 ship in Proving Grounds as thats a bot fight (Though bots a nightmare for corvettes. Their guns are so accurate) or if no one else is a healer I have to bring a t2 healer as I dont have a t3.
