I'm looking forward to see what that looks like. 200 vs 200 ships. ;) Kidding aside, I am curious to see what they do with it.

There's a GameSpot preview of this.

I wonder...what happens if a troop transport gets boarded  :lol: .

Hopefully the naval aspect of the game won't have a clunky interface like Imperial Glory.

It will be so crowded that every seat is taken and the newly boarded have to stand.
