As with the early days of tier 9 and 10 in World of Tanks, they tiers are too powerful for the tiers below them. Unless the player has no idea how to fly their plane, any tier 9 can wipe a full team of tier 7's solo. The same can be said for most tier 8's facing tier 10's. Hell all the non-jet tier 8's that are maneuverable enough to stay alive for any length of time against any tier 9 or 10 plane, doesn't have the fire power or the speed to really do much against them. Granted I have taken on 2 tier 9's in my Me 209 and stayed alive long enough to punch a hole or two in them, but that's about it. 1 on 1 in the right bit of map, at low altitudes you have a solid chance, but that's it. Letting tier 9's and 10's into lower tier matches is just ego gratification, nothing more.

Did you know that when World of Tanks came out tier X tanks regularly fought tier 5 tanks count yourself blessed.

This is basically a spin-off of the 'tier 2s shouldn't fight tier 4s'. Instead of being biplane vs monoplane, it's jet vs prop.
While I do have to concede that the low number of high tier players makes it much harder to fight high tiers (because less players make skill more important, but also because less players means weird MM match ups), you just have to apply what you learned at tier 2: Keep to your plane's strengths, don't chase needlessly and don't admit defeat until you've tried your all.

There's this old video I remember of of a Maus vs tier 6 tanks. All you hear is the sound of shells bouncing. I'll see if I can find it...
Found it.

Really they did did they?

I wonder how they did that in a 4 tier spread which was the original MM spread.

4 tier MM spread + a tier 5 tank = 9 tier max!

It only happened in Wot's CBT... The MM was so broken that Tier 5's have to fight tier 10. I still remember the time i was using my PzIV and have to fight 2 IS-7's. Guess what happened? I died, duh.
Edit: Is it me or is the Reply system not working?

Everybody will be a tier 1 in a few more weeks....Games will be loaded at the low tiers...  Right now they have to dump the jets in lower tier battles because there are so few of them. Maybe one day if they have a good player base going forward we might see just 2-tier battles. There just isn't 20+ tier 9s &10s to battle each other. I have a YAk-15 (tier 8) and I don't even like battling tier 9s. To me there seems to be a greater separation between tier 8 & 9 in performance & power verses a lower tier 5 & 6.....
