Are the cheapest way to fill fleet supply.
Give you the most DPS per fleet suppy. (flacks actually have higher dps/supply, but they have really bad modifiers)
Give you the most DPS per cost.
Give the enemy the least exp reward per fleet suppy.
They literally beat every unit in equal supply except flack frigs... and at a cheaper cost.
Their only downside, is they die like flies to flack frigs and aoe attacks.
Possible ideas include:
Nerfing their dps
buffing other units against them.
One thing that hasnt been suggusted is messing with their cost.
Which, is intresting, because their cost has been unchanged since they were 1 fleet supply... this might even be an oversight.
So. my question, is, just considering their cost...
would you still build corvettes like you do currently if they were:
25% more expensive? (125 credits, 12.5 metal, 6.25 crystal)
50% more expensive? (150 credits, 15 metal, 7.5 crystal)
75% more expensive? (175 credits, 17.5 metal, 8.75 crystal)
Twice their current cost? (200credits, 20 metal, 10 crystal)
2.5x? (250 credits, 25 metal, 12.5 crystal)
Please post the threshold you feel that you are not sure if you would still build them or not.
I am pretty sure i wouldn't build them if they were 75% more expensive... so my vote is 50%.
