i think they should be in their own class as well as the new cap ship that seems so pointless.
have it take research to unlock the corvette class and make it a true anti titan ship with defense against strikecraft. weak versus frigates,
then the crappy cap that gets moved to this class as well maybe give it anti frig abilities to go along with the corvettes.
make them both a "corvette class" between frigs and cruisers in size 2 ships in the class.
call one an assault ship that has a weapon that only fires on titans maybe even capital ships as well.and it has short range defensive weapons for protection verses flak and light frigs and strike craft but has fairly low damage verses them. then the ship that replaces the crappy cap ship that we move into that class as well has straight anti frig ability. Give it a medium range with medium to strong attack verses frigs but cant shoot strikecraft at all. and its weak verses titans, make both of them average verses cruisers. and they both have medium to low armor. maybe barely more armor than frigs.
both can be killed fairly easily by cruisers and frigs but they can kill said ships as well, definately need to be a little more durable than frigs but not as much as a cruiser, cruisers would own them in a straight up fight but in a balanced fleet it would be nice.
cruisers killing corvettes efficiently while one corvette kills frigs efficiently and the other asaults titans. definately cant have them just decimate titans, however it would be the most efficient ship to assault a titan force. have the titan assault ship capable of winning in a fight with flak but not against long range frigs, the other ship would win in a fight verses frigs in a 1/1 ratio but lose to a heavy cruiser 1/1. bombers would kill the anti frig corvette easily but not the anti titan version. they could with numbers of strike craft. they should still be fast but slower than bombers. maybe slightly faster than heavy cruisers. of course frigs could still kill them just like they can kill heavy cruisers but easier than heavy cruisers and they would be able to kill heavy cruisers bt not that easily, however easier than frigs can
make them mid price range btween cruisers and frigs and take mid range of fleet capacity, and they are marginally effective verses cap ships.
make the tech need 3 labs to unlock corvette class then 4 or 5 to unlock the titan killer. it should unlock at the same tier as titans do.
i know this is asking a lot but it would no longer be a spammable corvette and a worthless cap ship. they would have a place in a balanced fleet. And have an actual effective counter to titans. cause we all know they can be damn strong for whoever gets them first.
plus adds a more tactical strat to hunt a titan and they would both be just as vulnerable to titan fire as everything else.
so u couldnt just spam the anti titan and go swarm it cause they would die in a fire but with both corvette ships you could as long as the titan wasnt well defended with a balanced frig cruiser fleet.
maybe say 10 anti titan and 10 anti frig corvettes would lose in a fight verses 10 heavy cruisers and 10 long range frigs.
maybe they would even lose to a 30 frig force.something like 3 long range frigs kill 1 anti frig corvette. the anti titan corvette is vulnerabl to frigs so it would die slowly to a long range frig in a 1v1.
lol sorry i started babbling and so this is a way TLDL sorry
