Another post I am making SPECIFICALLY FOR KIXEYE...but as long as I'm not "lynched" over it feel free to post your opinion.

I made a few reasonable arguments in the past on how to make a new Corvette, but no reasonable answer as to why to make a new one or how to release it. With the production of blueprints to obtain VEGA ships, I will give BOTH the missing answers with my original how for making the Corvette.

Corvettes are like the grunts of the covenant in the Halo series...no threat, simple tasks, and mostly a comedic target amongst the others. However, they do have purposes to them.

  1. When you first start the game, your main ships for a few levels are the Corvettes. You may replace the Pathfinder with a Voyager, but "if you polish a ****, it's still a ****". Not trying to degrade it, just saying regardless of looks, stats, or slots a Corvette is just a Corvette.
  2. At novice levels, where you are attempting to get 1 ship from each class, Corvettes make a relatively fast ship you can use for light escorts, skirmishes, cargo collecting/scavenging, and if an enemy is low enough, even minor base hits.
  3. At high levels (31 for example), they have served their duty...but they are not a complete waste yet. They make good use as bait (draw an unexpected target into a trap), scouts (find out what is in an enemy's fleet/base to be prepared), a good decoy (use to create a disturbance in a region of space to allow a fleet to slip undetected into/out of enemy territory), a diversion (distract a tailing fleet to allow a damaged/ill-equipped fleet to escape), and my favorite one is Duels (if you have an issue with an ally, throw corvettes at each other and the winner is the fleet that lives. Solves any issues and makes no dent in resources).

Now for how to release.

Since we see all of these big VEGA ships, there is a good chance they have some ships for menial jobs such as mining or gathering cargo for intra-planet (between planet) shipping. So, much later when all of the current blueprints being leaked are out, make and release a VEGA Corvette. Not much different, just a VEGA style of a small ship, a few different stat changes that gives a challenge to current Corvettes, and maybe an extra slot or two.

And finally...why on earth make a blueprint that mid to high levels can blow out of the water.

Even pros had to start as a beginner, and without a good supply of new blood the game would surely die. So to respect the beginners and have both KIXEYE and the community thank them for keeping VEGA CONFLICT going, we could make it mainly for the beginners so they can firstly feel appreciated and become better members of both the VEGA CONFLICT and KIXEYE community, and second to give beginners a general idea on the concept of the blueprint method that is soon to be released.

I KNOW a lot of higher levels are going to give me crap over this, but I am suggesting things so that by assisting the lower levels we can make the community grow.

    Im just having a friendly debate/suggestion about how we can give some good hardware to the beginners so they feel like a real part of the community, hardly beating a horse.

    They have plenty of good hardware to research and go for already ship wise. Corvettes are pretty much a waste of time past level 10 as everything you mentioned above can be done minutely better with a harrier. Now they also have low level blueprints to acquire. A vega equivalent will probably be released during an event soon enough.

    No need to fill the game up with dead wood just yet.

    It's not like you're going to be fighting high level players all the time. It makes no sense if a high level player dies to a lower level player

    as stated in the why, this is MOSTLY for the lower levels so they feel like a true part of the community. its like a puppy amongst grown dogs; you make the puppy feel loved, then it feels like part of the family
