In a Veteran Match with mostly T4, the situation is very different to Recruit Matches: Players stay together, protect their ACs and TCs, almost every corvette is quickly spotted and as soon as it tries to engage, destroyed.
I do not think that corvettes are perfectly balanced at higher Tiers, but the problem there is much smaller then at lower Tiers.
I mainly play veteran matches with people in tier III and tier IV... to be honest corvettes simply don't give a shirt about anything but dreads and destroyers.

Corvettes are toxic and the toolkit they have it's broken.

Do You like the game this way ? I'm happy for you, but I won't invest time in this thing. I have enough of this recurring design strategy that ends to create a totally op class only to satisfy the " wanna be assassin " part of the market.

There are plenty of tools to counter them. stasis pulse, drain pulse, scrambler pulse, blast pulse, stasis beam, purge beam, stasis ammo, nuke mine etc. I only play on the PS4 but all of these things can ruin the day for any corvette. Dreadnoughts with stasis pulse and broadside combo are brutal. Or if you play support Tesla pods and blast pulse can aswell make short work out of any corvette.

The problem with that is:

  1. Most of these modules are not available at lower Tiers and often need quite some experience to be used effectively.
  2. It is very hard to destroy a Corvette without these modules. I do understand that every class has its counter modules with which it can be very effectively countered, but for corvettes, the difference between the effort it takes to destroy them with and without these modules is bigger then with any other class.

The reason that a Corvette can be destroyed doesn´t mean that it is perfectly balanced.
Many were complaining that the light tac was to weak although it could destroy other ships. Nevertheless it was buffed.

Let's look at the key advantages the ship has over others:

  1. Corvette class is the fastest ship in the game (Highest Speed)
  2. Corvette class is the most maneuverable in the game (Most Agility)
  3. Corvette class has the smallest hotbox in the game (Best Avoidance)
  4. Corvette class is the only class with 100% shield absorption ability (Best Shields)
  5. Corvette class is the highest DPS class in the game by far (Best DPS)
  6. Corvette class can kill much larger ships before they can fire back (lowest Time to Kill)

  7. true

  8. Not more agile than destroyers with evasive maneuvers.
  9. If a Svorg class arty is facing you, the hitbox will be smaller.
  10. Dreads have the best shields IMO.
  11. In 1.2km, yes, but you have the lowest hp to deal with.
  12. The lowest time to kill is a buffed up Onager, 0, you left click on people and people die.

If you have ever played a team elim match on veteran you should know how week corvettes are against strong teams.

With the fight together corvettes stand no chance.

Also if your in a fighter you can solo corvettes in tem when they dont have auto repair because they never get regen.

The straight counter to the corvette are the harwich and aion. The aim is hitscan so no prob with the beam and thats before you talk about purge beam. Dreads can wreck corvettes with status pulse. Last destroyers wreck with scramble pulse.

Saying a class is overpowered is stupid saying the dover is overpowered due to lack of mods i can inderstand.

Corvettes are only useful if your not paying attention to them.

lol ... good luck chasing a corvette with a fighter... You guys are unbelievable...

I suppose you reached the status of total denial just to protect your "farm spot".

Well.. you can continue to play alone in your micro world where some players accept to be farmed by a total unbalanced class.

Slow down ... maybe you did not read . The corvette can simply tank an ac of the same tier frontally and kill him. Really guys... either you are trying to defend your "farm spot" either you can't didn't play other classes recently.

Eh, tank?
All AC have effective range of 7km, with NO damage falloff, and fastest projectile speed in game (7km/s).
Vettes have 1.2km effective range, with very steep damage falloff past that range, and significantly lower projectile speed.

If you speaking of tier-2 vette dover, its even worse. Fulgora and Medusa have nearly 360 degree attack angle for their guns. Thus they keep moving around and shooting at their target. Dover (and his later variants) have very limited attack angle for front mounted guns. If initial attack will fail - the only possible way for Dover to repeat attack with main guns is to STOP and wait for reload. At which point you don't even need to slow him down. He effectively already will be nearly immobile.

The only thing required from you is very BASIC things to do:
1)Don't waist your energy on weapons, unless vette was killed recently and not gonna return within next half minute.
2)Don't wonder far from you team. Been ACs doesn't mean you should act like that. If you want to flank someone, at very least ensure you have an escort.
3)Don't just seat and what how vette killing you. ALWAYS peak on radar (frankly dover can't use cloaks), and ALWAYS mark dover for team when he is out of cover.
4)Pay attention when other team mates calling targets. It very likely will be corvette.

Oh and, if you not heed those SIMPLE rules. You not gonna be bad just against vettes, in veteran matches you gonna be bad with ANY class vs EVERY class (including same class you using).

That's not true actually.
Both tier-2 ACs have stasis missiles. As well as dive maneuver and bomb catapult.
Most t2 ships have anti-missile laser to deal with vettes' torpedoes
Orcus have tesla pods and blast pulse. Blast pulse alone will leave dover on 44% health.

This is quite a lot to ask from a new player who just installed Dreadnought for the first time.

And regarding the rest of your post:

Just because it is possible to kill a Corvette doesn´t mean that it is balanced.

I am getting the feeling that some of the Corvette-Supporters wouldn´t even see a Corvette as OP if it had 200,000 hp, because sure, thats a lot of hp, but if your team just focuses properly, calls out targets and you equip your ship only with anti-Corvette modules, it may only kill half of your team! Perfectly balanced!

Corvettes aren´t balanced just because they are not immortal.

(Warning! The following lines may contain Sarcasm!)
How about just quadrupling the HP of every class except for the Corvette? Sure, it will become harder for the Corvette to score kills, but it is still possible! And if you can´t score kills with a corvette anymore, you are just terrible at everything! Perfectly balanced change!
