Q: How does this affect upper tier guilds and deeper defensive squad requirements?
A: Whether or not guilds are in the upper tier of matchmaking has nothing to do with their reward tier.
There is a range of upper tiers in matchmaking that spans multiple uppper reward tiers that all qualify for the deeper defensive squad requirements.
You could be in Reward Tier 2 or 3 and be in a TW that uses the deeper defensive squad requirements. It depends largely on your matchmaking calculation which is separate from reward tier.
Q: Does this mean our guild won't face higher reward tier guilds?
A: No. Matchmaking does not consider reward tiers, only your guild's squads for the match making algorithm.
Example: your guild is reward tier 4 and your matchmaking strength calculation is high, you could face a guild who is at reward tier 5 but low matchmaking strength.
It's not common (for the vast majority of the game) but it can and likely will happen from time to time.
Again, this is because Matchmaking strength does not consider Reward Tier at all.

We counted the gear difference between us (82 Mio GP) and our current opponent (113 Mio GP): Difference is 109 Chars with gear XII, 346 Chars gear XI and 223 Chars gear X. and again, thats just the difference! And CG thinks that „secret matchmaking formula“ is working right?! We will only place a few teams for the reward, beside that we won’t participate. Waste of time. You broke the imo best game mode. Congrats CG

I've heard from some of my guildmates and others in the game that guilds are intentionally lowering the mods on their characters when they sign up, then re-modding the characters back up once they start setup and have been matched. This lets them enter at a lower tier matchup so they get an easy win.
Does your formula lock in mod enhancements to those characters? Because this seems to be a "loophole" in your calculation.
