Currently, Armada Online is in an open Alpha stage. There are numerous amounts of tier 3 ships to choose from for each race. The level cap is 40 with plans to be raised to 100 accommodating the future tier 4 ships. Along with new ships for each race, we also have new zones, missions, and a story line on its way.
