Would you look at this "pls pls dont nerf mah poor ship" fest. Eheheh.
Amount of effor you put in defending your ship says a lot. About your broken ship AND you as well.
Actualy you might belive in your words, in that case in wouldnt be so bad. Igonrance is leser evil than intended charlantry.
There's a difference between saying "don't nerf my ship" and having enough experience to know whether or no it is overpowered. I have about 20 hours playtime on each class with ~40 on Dreadnoughts, and run at a 4.5/1 K/D ratio. I do no better in Vettes than I do on any other class unless the enemy team has too much Arty for their own good; if anything I do better in a facetanking Lorica than I do in my Vette. So if I can run a 19/0 game in each of the ship classes, and do so with about the same frequency in each, does that mean they're all OP? No, it just means that this game is about SKILL.
The reason people can't deal with Vettes is that they don't build for it and don't practice their aim and are also not attentive, not because they're inherently overpowered. Anyone with the right build is going to instantly kill Vettes, no questions asked. Mines, well aimed Arty, literally any status effect, all lethal. My Lorica runs Stasis Pulse which is basically a death sentence to any Vette within 2km, and there are plenty of other modules out there that have similar results. Point being there are plenty of ways to kill Vettes; if you either don't bother to use them or aren't skilled enough to do it successfully, then that's on you. Either make a new build or practice more, but anyone who has a wide range of experience in this game can tell you Vettes are no more or less powerful than any other ship when used correctly.
- Vettes are far from unhittable even with ping. I hit them all the time with the Lorica, Arty, Vindicta, and especially Tac Cruisers.
- They have no "tanking aspects" beyond about 3 seconds of 100% block which they can use to GTFO when things go wrong. Without that, they'd be worthless because they'd have absolutely no way out.
- Not only is 1.2km not "much bigger" than 800m, but if a Vette wants to stay out of that range while shooting a Destroyer, they have to either stay still at that range or slowly and awkwardly steer around it, which leaves them incredibly vulnerable.
- If auto-aim were 100% reliable then Vettes would be absolutely pointless. It's there to help hit slowly drifting targets whose movements you can't honestly see well, not to do the work for you.
Finally, if you're going to argue with someone who clearly has a good idea what they're saying and says it coherently, the least you could do is try to accurately represent what that person said, not just call their data BS and then go on in half-structured sentences about why they're somehow evil. And don't put words in their mouths- Spork never once said Destroyers are OP and need a nerf, only that they are quite strong and an effective counter to Vettes which may need a bit more attention. And I agree- ever notice how the second you pull up a Destroyer with Storm Missiles you instantly win games? Because most other people have. Anyway, that's another rant for another day. I've made just about every point about the issue that I have to make so if you're just going to yell that I'm an evil liar of something then go nuts- you won't likely get a response.
Also wow. A lot of people put out posts in the time it took me to write this lol
