Since WG has gotten all 3 areas covered in land, sea and air my guess would be space is next. Any guesses when that will be starting?

I'll be all over it when it does.

Large starship combat, with no "history" to impede balance?

Yes please!!

They should do an age of sail type thing with 10 tiers and commander skills - bet they would do an awesome job of it.

I would have gone with the fourth dimension myself, epic brawls in our tardises, doing drive bys in deloreans. Man that would be cool

It's the natural next step, I've been thinking they should do it for a while. Basically a mixture of WOWP with WOWS. Would definitely try it out.

i rather see them reinventing WOT/WOW but with ancient machines,  people back then had little idea  so designs where pretty bonkers and unique :cap_haloween:

they had ships designed for ramming, ships with catapults, ships with some sort of flametrhower, etc..

I would play this, no question.  Wind effects, option of chain or solid shot, marines boarding ships?  Oh yeah!

Perhaps in the same arcade-y sense that WOT, WOWS, & WOWP(don't know if that qualifies as a success). A model I would hope they don't follow for an Age of Sail era game. Hopefully they would build a open enough game mechanical framework they could support better play and not rely on 'gimmicks' once they got past mid-tiers. [imho that is the real 363Kg/800lb ogre)

Yes please!!

& no nationalities, heirs or other entities with legal precedence/rights to sue over IP's. There's certainly potential if they avoid the gimmick pitfall. One can hope for the best.

yes, and have the T10s be those HUGE first rate ships of the line with like 100 guns at the least, like HMS Victory

and one of the premiums would probably be USS Constitution

If WG got the Star Trek license I wound how differently they'ed approach space combat compared to the other games? Heh, a massive crossover between several space franchises would be pretty neat but expensive as heck.

You'd still have the destroyer players screaming about not being invisible 100% of the time at any range while being protected by magical force barriers against anything that might hurt them.

3 decks is an overkill. spanish builder, hold my beer.. quad deck!  

Spanish ship Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad

yqi7fmu601iy.jpg

  • lower deck 30 × 36 pdrs,
    middle deck 32 × 24 pdrs,
    upper deck 32 × 12 pdrs,
    quarterdeck and forecastle 18 × 8 pdrs.

later it was modernised with more deck guns raising the number from 112 cannons to 140 :cap_rambo:

You can get that on GOG and Empires at War is available from the Dynaverse people.

Here is something scary to think about. During the War of 1812 a bigger ship than that was laid down on Lake Ontario.
