I just read that the number of fleets you can have is limited to your ascendancy level. So, does that mean you can have 4-fleets if you have 4 Asc. Tokens? I know we have just 3 fleet cards, but then why not just say "can't have more fleets than you have asc. tokens (max 3)? And if I copy the fleet cards , I can have a 4th fleet. Thoughts?
by the rules not currently. they may expand your options with more fleet cards later. remember star bases are also limited by ascendancy but you obviously cant have more than 3 starbases.
my guess is at some point they will release "big game" expansions allowing for larger games, ie more ships, fleet cards, starbases, etc per faction.
