Listen bro, it's a side affect of risk aversion. Alliances like yours attract super capital capable pilots because it's less risky to deploy high value ships in greater numbers. Dump 1 Titan on a random fight and it dies. Dump 5 Titans on a random fight and it's a toss up. Dump 50 Titans on a random fight and it's over. Safety in numbers. Every pilot I've flown with over the past 5 years who now owns a super is either in Raiden, NC. or PL. I don't blame them. They earned (or bought) their shiny toy and they should get to use it. But the "don't fly what you can't afford to lose" does not apply to the vast majority of Super pilots.
Ignoring the fact that all in game TF2 items can be earned or traded for, the base weapons for TF2 are not inherently inferior to the drops/upgrades available.Team Fortress 2
