I knew some kind of theme was happening! I just can't figure out how it relates in-game yet!

The pre-reboot SF tourney had the title

"August 30 - October 4 1363"

My curiousity piqued I googled it.
Wikipedia shows this to be the date for the naval Battle of Lake Poyang .

And now we have rumble:
July 9-10 1790
Second naval battle of Svensksund

Both are historically famous naval sea battles.

The LE ship theme is historical and probably related too: http://blog.puzzlepirates.com/spyglass/entry/it_belongs_in_a_museum

Right now there's playing the Battle of Svenskund tourney. How many other Russo-Swedish War sea battles have there been?
