Corvettes are ruining the game not because of the concept of their design but because your servers can not handle the ship design. I am seeing a lot of rubber banding more and more, it seems like the more speed you give this ships the more they bounce back and forth. I see this only with the Dover/Machias/Valcour/Fulgora/Medusa and the destroyer Vindicta, if these builds are using all the speed buffs. This gives those players a huge and unfair advantage as you will not ever be able to shoot them down and these players know this and its why they use them all the time. They are so brazen about it that now I am even seeing these ships fly right up to a dreadnought not even trying to dodge shots and it looks like there taking full broadsides along with what ever your are shooting at them and I would say only about 30% of what you fire at them may be hitting?
Its absolute garbage and yes I flew around a Fulgora and medusa and I would get so much hate mails saying I’m cheating because I cant be hit… guess where these players are now??? Nope not in your game, they went some place else honestly you don’t need corvettes in this game for it to be successful and honestly you will lose trash players.
If you insist on keeping this type of ship in your game at least put in the ability to play in matches where these ships can be omitted from being used. I would gladly que up and wait 20 minutes for a match with out this not over powered but broken class.
For those who say you just have to know how to counter them… don’t waste your time. Something is wrong with these ships, just in the last match I played in a Fulgora flew right at my dreadnought and I didn’t even need to use the useless tractor beam on him because he flew straight at me and parked right next to my Lorica. I hit him with broad side as well as repeater fire and another ship was firing on him as well with a Dola all close range… this guy only lost 50% health before he killed me and then just flew away. I see this so much with Corvettes listed above I wont spend any more money on anything and really don’t want to play anymore.. its soo bad that if I see the other side flying them I just drop out of the match right away and look for another, got this idea from other players in game.
