as it is you leveled way to fast when the game came out and eveyone was pvping together, i was general 5 (klingon max level) in the course of a 3 day weekend of pvpfest before the game went live for non pre orders ffs.
This might work if the Tier 1 ship flown by a Tier 5 character was limited to Tier 1 equipment and the Tier 5 players personal abilities were held to those of a Tier 1 player. But that isn't how it works. The Tier 5 player can put Mk X weapons, sensors, engines and consols in that T1 ship, and they will have the full range of powers/abilities of a T5 player. In short they will still be a T5 player. Completely over powering real T1 players.

What they need to do is create open PvP areas where all tiers can play together. It might take 6-7 tier 2 players to take down a tier 4 player. Or maybe that T5 player jumps into his old T1 ship as a disguise, but pimps it with T5 equipment.
