Apparently, it's national 'talk like a pirate day'
I have no idea why people are whining about Dreadfleet. It looks good to me, board games are great, and Games Workshop have a good track record for stand-alone games. If you don't like it, guess what? Don't buy it! Certainly (as was pointed out to me today), don't moan about GW being an evil empire and then complain that they haven't spent their time putting out another twenty quid plus army book...! The game-play will probably been marvellous, given the quality of the games development team - and if you look at the sprues on the website, there's plenty of opportunity to use the islands as objective markers. Plus, the 'seascape gaming mat' looks like it could easily be scaled-up for use with other pirate-based skirmish games. Overall, seems like a win-win to me.
