The Valdore is a heavy ship; I would say it’s similar to a KEV-12 or a CV-97…
In choosing to fly a CL-13 vs a Valdore, I think it’s a trade-off between lethality and survivability. The CL remains one of the top-tier “survivors”, while the Valdore offers a deal more firepower. I think I’d have a tough time grinding the Valdore to the top without constantly keeping my back to a starbase. It can become overwhelmed quickly in busy areas like DV.
Bots are dumb and fall for a lot of cloaking tricks, so it’s a little hard to say which is “better” because player goals and styles vary widely.
Just to clarify, are you calling for a Valdore nerf, a Gorn buff, or some combination of both?

I really don’t want nasty scripts running on this site and security comes first, but fixing this:
