dang, i just found out that gungans can make houses underwater. better yet, their fishing boats build the houses:

Even better, their fishing ships can make the houses (hehe) -nt Mr.Fixit

makes sense. so you'd have to attack the Gungans with subs most of the time, unless you're playing on a non-water map.
wait, would it be possible that you can't play Gungans if there isn't water in the area ?!?!

i don't know, but in some screenshots they had gungans fighting the TF on land, so........

i think Gungan houses can be build both above and under water then.. that makes them strategically more impressive !!

Yes, but doesn't it make sense that they would be able to live underwater, they do in the movies. Heck, there are above ground building in the movies.

Anyways, they are in the screenshots if you look underwater, they look rather cool.

in the movie, you see Gungans on the ground most of the time. and they live in bubbles shielding them from the water.

so that makes them easy to use on land.
come to think of it that way, i don't think Gungans in water/on ground is an issue anymore that way.

Well, I think they have to somehow have to "force" people to use Sea Units !!

Me, for example, didn't use sea units much in AoK, and with Air units, they might become even more unimportant ....

..not against Gungans if those can build underwater.

yeah, sea battles weren't very widely used, but they did add to the diversity and were a refreshing change of pace.

and on Zone-battles, people would get random maps, so you could get sea-maps and would be forced to do sea-units..

Hmm, i didn't really like the sea levels in RA2 either. The carriers were cool though.

You will be able to play gungans although there isn't water. How will you be able to destroy underwater buildings if only gungans have subs?

It would be cool if Gungans could build all their buildings under-water. A verifiable Underwater base.

yes, it would be. sea battles in star wars will probably won't be as big as the air ones, but they should add variety.........

I don't think that the gungans are the only ones with subs.

what about the jedi? in TPM, Qui-gon and Obi-wan used an istrument(misspelled) to breath underwater. this can spell doom to underwater villages with the jedi and the force with the lightsabers, lets just say it'd be a real mess:D :D :D

i don't think unit will be able to go underwater. you can't see that instrument with such small units, so it would just seem like they walked in and stayed under. not really convincing..

Hmm, it would be cool if the jedi could cross the oceans in the game, and blow up ships. All-Terrain Jedi!!! That would be awesome.
