That's still basically saying the ship is underpowered. You should be able to effectively play a ship in any match, otherwise the game balance just isn't where it should be.
Some ships are better suited for some match types. Koschei is one of the strongest choices in deathmatch, it's not underpowered. Corvettes for example are worse in deathmatch and better in onslaught. It's just the nature of asymmetric games that some ships are better in some situations (match types as well as team compositions). The challenge is to influence the game so that you are more in the situations that favor you. Of course asymmetric games are notoriously hard to balance.
