I've see a fail division like this before.  However, I've NEVER seen the fail tier (aT6 in this instance) not only top out on its own team, but (after normalizing for the .5 XP added to the winning side), the T6 topped EVERY OTHER SHIP in the match!!  Three tiers down...best in match.

A tier 6 in a division with a tier 7 who then draws a tier 9 match.

I hope the QE captain has replays enabled and sends it to Zath or someone like him. That's a performance which needs to be seen. 

I also hope everyone on the winning side gave a Worthy Adversary uptick.

I can see it happening:

- The QE gets an exp bonus for shooting higher tier ships

- It has 15 inch guns, so can overmatch the tier 7s and most of the cruisers

- It has basically the same firepower as a Gneis (Probably worse pen, longer reload offset by 2 extra guns)

- Dreadnought Battleships have surprisingly good armor, especially against cruiser AP (due to the thicker upper belts you often see) and the QE also has a fairly protected citadel

- QE driver was not a potato

I Failed my Warspite into a 9 match a couple times. She did well, but as others have said, they are tough ships.

The player is the biggest factor in the match and not the tiers the player sees in a match.

Strictly by accident, a friend and I played Clemsons in a T7 match about 6 months ago.  We noticed our third div member chose a T5 ship after we were entering the game.  Cant remember if it was a win or loss, but we finished #2 and #4 on the team.  We each got an ambush, and started a hella lot of fires.  Frustrated the heck out of a Red Gneis.

People really underestimate the QE.  Stonking bada$$ ship, IMO, if a bit on the slow side.  Some of the tightest and most consistent battleship guns in the game, and that AP!  Actually breaks my heart seeing players firing nothing but HE in the QE "becuz RN BB HE".  You don't know what you're missing.

The best was in the old MM.  When you didn't have tier restrictions in divisions and a Tier II could div up with a X.  Then seeing Umikaze terrorize Yamato, GK, etc.
