I managed to order this game shortly before the preorders closed after watching a some videos on YT. It is indeed a great start to what I believe will be an awesome game. Battles are great fun and I've found everyone to be helpful to new players. PVP is a bit quite during the day (on the times ive been able to check) but the evening battles have been great with plenty of ships. One battle had at least 30 ships. It gave me goosebumps and was very immersive.
I'm glad to see that admin are considering allowing additional players to join the fun and to help add suggestions on developments.
