Many people are anxious awaiting news on HCl's Prophecy Multiplayer project, but the wait doesn't have to be quite so long for everyone. One of the classic holy grails of the Wing Commander community was to get Wing Commander Armada working online. HCl finally achieved this major milestone last year. While you're waiting to blast eachother in the Vision Engine, now's a great time to practice against live opponents in the original Wing Commander multiplayer game. You can find instructions on how to get set up here.
