Is anyone playing this one? Any impressions? Visuals look pretty sweet.

The visuals look great, but no single player kills it for me. Also, the ships are controlled in the third person and don't feel like large capital ships to me. It doesn't help that many maps are located in atmosphere very close to the ground...i mean, wtf?

No single player?! I was to busy drooling over the visuals.

Pass.

So World of Warships in space...or near-earth atmosphere?

Maybe one day if this game makes money they will develop a sp campaign.

I tried it a while back. The tutorial is really great and gets you in the mood for some space battles.
Then you get thrown into matches where you warp into a planets atmosphere and have battles with other space ships just above the ground.
All the maps were like this 6 months ago (but now they have 1 space map) and it just made no sense to me. Like world of warships, these massive star ships were
hiding behind terrain and buildings. Sniping at each other and such. It just seemed ridiculous, a little like mechwarrior... would startships or robots really fight this way or would they be sitting ducks.

Ditto.
