Now imagine if you couldn't tell what tier a ship was from it's hull.
Your argument is invalid. PvP is set up for specific level ranges. If you are a Commander, all your opponents will be Commander as well, with the possibility of Captain 1. It is therefore safe to assume that the guy in the Nova (tier 2 science ship) is at least a Commander, and if the skin system were in place, then their ship would in all likelihood be a tier 3 science ship.
