Wouldn't a corvette hanging out by the enemy base counter this strategy? Then you'd have to bring your Acclamator in close to take out the corvette, while the enemy could pound your cruiser with the station guns. They probably would have ordered up some more corvettes with the money coming in since you bought the cruiser, too...
My guess is that there are plenty of opponents out there who could counter this. If you are sick of playing with noobs, then stop playing with noobs!
