Multi-tier ships

Has any thought ever been put into the idea of some ships being able to run at two different tiers based on which modules are installed?

This would really help the grind with some of the weaker ships like T8 cruisers. They could run at Tier 7 with certain modules, Tier 8 with others installed.

Ending up in Tier 9 and 10 matches the vast majority of the time has mostly stopped me grinding them. I don't have enough time to play that I'm gonna spend it doing that.

This could help balance in some areas as well and add a new dynamic to the game.

The MM doesn't see what you have installed, so there's no way this could work without a massive overhaul of the game. IMO it just isn't worth the time, effort, or money it would take. Now, if it was done over time due to a massive game overhaul, including the engine, then maybe the MM would also get an overhaul.

 

Really, though, it isn't much of an issue.

MM wouldn't have anything to do with it. It would all be client side.

Client would just report the ship as T7 cruiser instead of T8.

It would defeat the point of 'stock grind' stock ships are designed to be no or or less painful. It's what gets you to buy premium, free xp, and so on

Pretty much this although I think that the ships that carried two different main gun sizes in their life should be two separate ships in the tech tree, for example Mogami 6" and Mogami 8".

Within hours of doing this somebody would hack the client to report the yamato as a t1 ship so they could club seals. The first rule of online games is never trust the client for anything.

In alpha a fail division worked opposite to how it works now. A tier 10 divisioned with a tier 1 would drag the tier 10 down to tier 1, good times.
