Now our dear friends mechalenin and semazrelan are out for blood on these cute innocent little corvettes.
The issue I have with all this corvette "negative press" is that corvettes are so damn fun to play with. I don't mind having the game balanced around corvettes, and then around titans. As long as corvettes retain their usefulness for only so long in a match(say the first 10-30 min), and Titans come in later in the game( around tech 6-8), to allow more room for frigates and cruisers to develop into fleets. Frigate/cruiser fights should still be the bread and butter of this game, imo.
To reduce corvette efficacy in the early game you need a hard counter to them (something i've mentioned in another one of my threads, turrets with corvette specific AoE capabilities after research).
This thread is only for those people who enjoy playing with corvettes to show the love.
