Ive seen some screenshots of navy battles, and I was wondering how they are.

In Ancient Wars: Sparta you could ram, in AOEIII you could blow holes in ships with cannonry.. I hope these battles will match up, for they look like they will

Navy combats are going to be really diffrent in DoF, because you'll be able to put almost any units on your ships to fight against other ships or to board them. You'll also probably be able to capture ennemy ships after you kill their crew.

Plus you can also do a naval siege to a castle which brings me to another question, do you think you could have harbors/docks in your castle? Say there was a river running throught your that's big enough, you could put a sort of moat/entrance for the ships to enter and leave the castle. That'd be great for hostages.

Yes that would be cool, but I could see that having to become a heavily defended area of the castle.

On one image I see a river going through it, but it's blocked off and no ships can get down there.

Sea battle are going to be very similar to Rise & Fall and the AW:S you mentioned but without ramming unfortunately.

I don't know if they will have cannons but you can mount tribs on them maybe.
