Hello everybody, I've just gotten into the game a few days ago and I'm about to breach into T3 with my first ship (I was looking at the Jupiter medium destroyer as my first T3) but I'm still struggling to figure out what advantages the different weight classes offer to each hull type.
So far I've played the medium arty cruiser, the medium tac cruiser, medium dread, light corvette and medium destroyer.
I'd like your advice and input on choosing what weight classes are most effective in their given roles.
What I know so far from browsing the forums is that the light tactical cruiser is unable to repair and the heavy is the king of repairs, the light arty cruiser is a whole different beast than the medium arty due to its 360° firing arc and faster firing guns. I know nothing of the destroyers, dreadnoughts and corvettes, however.
Primarily I'm interested in learning the differences between the destroyers (Also very interested in finding the right variant for the plasma ram) and dreadnoughts as well as understanding how differently a light corvette and a heavy corvette would ideally play. I'm not interested in glory hunting, however, and will play any ship class to round out a team, PUG or otherwise.
P.S.: Is the heavy arty really as bad as some forum posts make it out to be, compared to the light and medium variants?
