Agreed. If there is such a small gap people wont want to work for it, especially for how much T5 stuff costs. They may be better off just making another level for T5 only, although I doubt it would happen.

From personal experience, once you get within range of the Tesla turret it it definitely a better option. I want to say within a certain range it intensifies, but its been a while since i used it.

So I think player retention falls to a few things:

1) Progression: The progression in this game is way to quick to tier 4, where the true meat of the game lies. This needs to be lengthened and stretched out so as not to suddenly hit the progression wall that is tier 4/5. This can be done in an artificial way (to me) in that you just increase resource requirements as tiers increase (more than they are now). You could also do what most tier-based PvP games do and have 10 teirs instead of 5; this I think is the best route, but the development resources certainly are not there.

I understand your point but given the gripes about progression at T4 and T5 Im not sure lenghtening T3 or any of them will do more than drive away new players. Some feel at T4 they hit a wall with how long it takes and wont even try T5 (given the game is FtP it makes it easier to just abandon it since no money has been invested).

MM has been an issue since day 1 it seems. squads have such an advantage from communication and in my playing time Ive noticed a lot of solos will just ignore any alerts you may give and do their own thing. nothing you can do about that though.

Hmmm as i see it SkyRaider is more active in Forum, than in the game xD
So why acting up? You should be farmed like Reclaimer is beeing farmed, for his ignorance^^
Btw i don't care if u try to insult me, ur just a bad random. And yes, i'm not a nice person, i know that :p

Reclaimer just hates corvettes and trying to mask it with some stupid reasons. Most players are kinda fine and try to adapt, but there are always some triggered whiners, who can't or won't be able to adapt to certain playstyles. Some of them lack ofc common sense.

Well I’m on here for two reasons. First to discuss issues with the game with others. Second is for the comic relief you provide.

You probably don't understand how you look. You didn’t comprehend the point of the original post, started whining about other players (while calling them whiners) and you keep referring to people as a “bad random.” I mean really? “Bad random.” This actually processes in your mind as insulting and irritating? Haha. It’s made me chuckle every time (I'm picturing a twelve year trying to be mean and unable to understand he isn't). We probably shouldn’t expand on how you believe yourself qualified to judge players or that anyone even cares what you think… I don't care if you insult me and so far you're failing horribly at it (snickers at Bad Random again).

Wait a second: you’re a random person on the internet who admitted they aren’t nice. So, I guess that would make you a “Bad Random!” Hahaha. Irony is always great for a laugh and you are providing it in quantities.

So go ahead little troll, keep on “trolling” (you can’t even do that right…), and keep making me laugh. Keep posting things that make you look sad and laughable.

Oh, one more time for the heck of it: bad random!

wouldnt the fact playerbase not going up show an issue?

well, i stand corrected on the definition, i thought it was a major reduction that basically made it useless.

i dont really squad. the few people i did play with stopped playing the game.

I consider a nerf to make it useless. taking a few k of damage off to me doesnt nerf it, it just makes it less powerful. but i guess we'll just agree to disagree on that.

Read what Ortis, Fluffy and Dragon wrote. If u still can't understand it, you most likely never will.
Just an advice: Try this so called op corvette build plz. Rn there are not even two hands full of people who can play it real good. The rest is just feeding like crazy.

This really says it all to me. The OP has raised the issue that the newer player experience and perception is that the game has issues and they are treated poorly, this is why he believes they are leaving instead of staying. He makes a point of something (Corvettes and warp) that he believes might be an issue contributing to this.

The rest of you all just dog pile on him about how covettes are NOT the problem, they are fine, give the implication that he is a bad player because he knows not of what he speaks and by implied extension that there is obviously no newer player issue because corvettes are just fine!

So why ARE the newer players not staying? Or are the servers being empty just a lie?

Instead of engaging the underlying issue the OP has raised you attack and belittle him from your pedistals of m@d 1337 5killz and think that his refutes his underlying point.

And someone told me that the toxic element here had gone now. I call BS.
God this is just sad.

Pretty much. Morbeus had the "git gud" attitude that, from a players side that has kept people from playing. add in thay his argument is basically "youre not good" (and he wont answer me on my platform and screen name, so he has no actual no of me as a player) it actually not sad, its pathetic.

Covs are not op and they need the abw to fulfill there purpose.
If you ask yourself what "is the purpose of a covette":
The purpose of a covette is to kill targets that are out of postion or that are of high importance (healer, sniper).

You can also kill destos but only if there out of pos or they are just bad.

The only nerf I would be fine with is to increase the cd of abw by like 5 sec or so. But nerf the dmg or the shield pen? No sry I cant agree with that.

And even the cd nerf would be kinda undeserved.

Edit: Because they will get nerfed next patch throught the ABP adjustment(its a buff)

Again, Im not saying nerf it, Im saying reduce the damage and maybe allow some damage absorbtion to shields. Im fine with corvettes, i just think blink warp is op at the moment. Id much rather then fix healballs than this though.

also you mentioned its getting nerfed in the next patch; where are you getting this info?

"Im an experienced player"
"Outside of a nuke and bomb catapult the blink is the only other real one shot weapon in the game."

Ok, another point why you are just a random (a realy bad one btw). So much ignorance and incompetence kinda hurts me.

Bombcata and oneshot?! Rly?! Have you played to much vetteran like reclaimer?
And there are more oneshot mechanics btw... Ever seen a plasma ram? Starlings? Triple amped dessie with flak? Boosted Grenada? Stealth Catarro? Flashpoints/Drain combo? Goliath?

"Why is a one shot on the smallest and most fragile ship? why is it more powerful than a nuke? theres no reason for it."

ok, so there are a few more i didnt write down that can take down lighter armorred ships. this is your whole counter point? pretty sad.

its not surprising you didnt answer my question as to my platforn and screen name. its because you dont know it, and your whole argument is to just say im not a good a player (which constant showing in top 3 of legendary suggest otherwise). that was your argument against sad-reclaimer too.

i mean honestly, the fact youre just trying to degrade players as a counter arguement says a lot about you and points to an actual lack of knowledge of the game because if you had it you wouldnt need to try this tact.

of course, there is a chance you do and youre just  a pathetic enough of a person to take that route anyways, and youre one of those "grah! git gud!" players no one has any respect for. either way, your posts reflect poorly on you.

try putting up a real argument (like those people you mentioned) otherwise youre really just wasting bandwidth....
