Me too. Have to admit the way this game is shaping up is making me more interested.

Do you have to be logged in to the forum to purchase?

No, I wasn't logged in when purchased...however, when you access the game itself, you need to create an account and use it.  Right now they provide an installer and a key to it.

I was excited at first because I thought this was the one with dreadnaughts that's being developed. 

Still like this one too with the age of sail, might be what I was hoping Naval Action would have been with more SP focus.

I'll probably breakdown and get the EA.

I'm definitely more interested in the Dreadnaughts game but this looks to be really ambitious.

I got the Commodore Edition with alpha access. Its limited to just a couple of scenarios and its clearly got awhile to go, but I really like what I am seeing so far. Reminds me of the older title Age of Sail.

Weird I didn’t see the Buy Now button anywhere yesterday. If this game is even half as good as the Ultimate General series it will be awesome. I just hope the studio is not spread thin with this and the dreadnaught game in development simultaneously.

They released an updated version, which now includes a land invasion basic tutorial.  Still very early, but nice to see some of the land fighting, which as expected seems much like their Civil War game, but at a little slower pace.  Hard to really get a feel with just a basic tutorial but good to see progress continues.

What theatre and war does it seem to be set in?
