Don't think Ship04 is happening at this point. I've lost interest in the game at this point, too, sadly.
Wanted to play it but didn't want to start if they were going to start a new server and now I would be even further behind despite having the game installed day 1 of NA release.
If they don't want to release a new server just come out and say no. The lack of communication on ANY of the issues has been ridiculous and among the worse I've seen in any game, let alone an online type of one. If this is how they are going to be with the NA version then I think I won't have missed much in the end.
