Ya know something?
There IS a problem with Corvettes.
And do you know why I know this with so much certainty?
Because this topic is brought up so much that some random player can start a thread - MISSPELL Corvette - and here we the typical celebrity forum warriors all talking about it like we know how to counter them.
Look, you are all idiots. Play a tier V match against GOOD Nevis players and you will not play another match for the rest of the day ( or maybe week ) you will either break your controller or turn the game off.
I have posted numerous times about the problem with the GOOD Corvette players. YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM and it is a joke. Absolutely nothing works unless you want to completely gimp your ship and what is the point in doing that? Die not as much? Lose by not as large a margin?
YOU PLAY AGAINST the Corvette style. This means ( if they are good) that they DICTATE the match. To the OP's point and the same point I brought up months ago, for a game called DREADNOUGHT, that is a completely screwed up.
