Stay in Tier 1...
I think most people are starting to catch the very well written guides and discussions from the community on this. I was just reading through a lot of the people that weren't enjoying the game and it sounds like they are all getting throttled in T2/T3 games before they are ready.

If you have a T2/T3 ship in your lineup, you're going to get thrown in T2/T3 games. T1 to T2 is dramatic at first, depending on the type of ship you feel most comfortable with.

After playing T1 for a couple hours and feeling like I had the hang of the game, I was able to accumulate some pretty high scores and was feeling like I had conquered the world. I got playing with a group of people that were established in T2/T3, not knowing there was a jump I was shocked!

Just putting it out there. If you're feeling like you're being thrashed, you may want to verify that you are definitely playing in Tier1, before dumping the game. You may also want to stick with a fighter in the T1 level as it's the balance between armor and speed. I think a lot of people may have not done themselves any favors when trying this game out.

Tier 2 is where class actually starts to matter. For fun pick-up games, T1 is definitely the best spot. T2 and up is the PRO!

So I don't know if I accidentally stumbled into a T2 game after getting a Kite-E. Is there a place where you can pick which tier you play in, or is it an automatic sorting thing based on the ships in your hangar?

automatic based on the ships in your hangar. You can change, to lower grade ships and you won't lose the higher one. For example, If i get a friend trying out the game, i'll put my 3 previous T1 ships in my hangar so we stay in T1 games.

I've spent most of my 21 hours playing in T2 rank with 2/3 T1 ships (and mostly using the T1) Seems that the general level of skill to play T2 makes for a better team, and better gameplay IMO

nice man. guess it depends on your understanding of the game going in also. I'm just seeing people talk about how underpowered, how they get thrashed, calling it pay2win...think this is all because they were in T2/T3 before they were ready. I don't remember anymore, but i think i played about 2 or 3 hours in T1 before really getting into T2.

T1 is for learning the basics and getting some decent knowledge.
T2 is for improving your flight skills and learning more about the modules.
T3 is for advancing your tactics and competing against other skilled players.
T4 is the end game "hardcore" zone. Here you will mostly meet people with very good skills and teams with a very good coordination.

I can totally see someone getting thrashed with T1 ships on T2! What it's really about is skill, logic, use of the cover system (aka asteroids) and use and timing of modules. Using a HP/Shield repair mid being blasted to death isn't super helpful most of the time (Since it heals over time and typically not that much for larger ships) Wasting module slots for what you 'want' instead of what your ship should use is important.

Anything past T1 is severely unbalanced towards regeneration being ungodly over powered. I love this game, but completely understand why this community size will rival only games like global agenda.
