Corvettes are not OP, no Vette nerfs needed.

USE YOUR EYES and READ, do not assume

The OP DID NOT say that Corvettes are OP

The OP DID NOT say a Nerf was needed

He said they ruin the game. This is mostly due to the fact that because of their speed, hitbox, and ping, Corvettes are very difficult to get shots on.

This is true.

If you don't think so, they you will when I shove my Corvette up your @$$

"EDIT " Goddamit OP, you do say that the Corvetts are OP.....I'm the one that KANT READ....well my fangs shall find you anyway you stupid old and crapp retro version of the Enterprise

I had to correct my post do to missing text, I dont want to call it over powered but drive home the point its broken becuase of lag. I was in a hurry to finish this post when I made it and I should know better to be posting when in a hurry.

I'm not a fan of corvettes but I've learned to counter them better. However, I do think their DPS is way too given all they need is a few seconds to take down a destroyer or dread. That's quite unbalance. Add in corvette's are hard to hit in general and once they raise shields some absorb 100% of damage, sometimes all you can do is just float there and die. That's absurd.

I think there needs to be some tweaking to their DPS and the damage they take. 100% damage absorption from shields needs to go, regardless if it lasts even a few seconds because it's al they need.

I frankly disagree here.

Corvettes have to be hard hitters, and they trade health for dps and speed. I agree with the tractor beam buff that had been mentioned earlier in this thread. I used it on my Invictus light dread, every Vette I catched died. The Corvettes have to give you beatings, but you can counter them easily.

I know they have to have high DPS, but I think it's too much. You basically can't do damage until they're at close range (good enough players just warp out from missile salvos). And like I said 100% damage absorption is ridiculous. I hit a corvette with a torpedo salvo and 4 flak shots with no damage done. There was literally nothing I could do. That shouldn't be possible.

Corvettes can certainly be pesky, but with the right tactics and strategies you can keep them where they need to be. But for the best outcome it requires effort from the entire team.

Sadly, I agree Tractor Beam or Tractor Beam Pods are usually worthless against Corvettes (at least until Tier V Tractor Beam modules); a Corvette can almost always easily escape if it has Power to Engines, or heaven forbid has Afterburner, Thrust Amplifier, or Desperate Measures.

Drain pulse, storm missiles and flak. Always kill corvettes brave enough to have a go of my destroyer.

corvettes are the class that some people are really good at or reeeeeeeeeally bad at. I rarely see an ok corvette. The best way to take them out is with destroyers.

Pretty much, they have a higher level of skill ceiling and floor then any other class in the game.

I don't use either since my play style is mostly in the 2.5K-7K range. Normally my torpedo salvo and flak guns are a god deterrent.
