  1. Well to be fair you ARE a talking pigeon...
  2. OK that does help. That being said, I always knew that you had brought the idea forward, so the reports that WG rejected the Haida makes me still hesitant to feel hopeful. I guess at least it isn't a 100% dead issue yet. It must seem like a silly fuss to everyone who isn't Canadian...
  3. Well obviously we agree with each other, or they would have done Canada day, or at least shown some real progress on a Canadian premium... No, clearly you don't care about Canada, Wargaming clearly doesn't care about Canada and I can only assume that most American's don't care about Canada. The issue is that Canada cares about you. Enough to send our sons and daughters to fight and day in conflicts (usually started by the USA) from Iraq to Afghanistan. Enough to risk our lives to rescue American hostages from Iran. Enough to send volunteers and official disaster relief teams alike when natural disasters strike the USA. Enough that a Canadian town of 10,000 people almost doubled it's population to take in 7,000 American's stranded there by 9/11. ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/on-sept-11-a-tiny-canadian-town-opened-its-runways-and-heart-to-7000-stranded-travelers/2016/09/08/89d875da-75e5-11e6-8149-b8d05321db62_story.html?utm_term=.512ac062d3be ) Oh and we are also your neighbours. Would you rather share a 8,891km border with Russia? Maybe Syria? ..it's not like we are asking for a lot...
  4. Clearly WG has no interest in moving forward with this.
  5. The point is that they are actually a few days apart. WG could have done a Canada day thing on July 1st and then from July 2nd until eternity you could do your stars and stripes garbage for all i care. As it is, though you are right that WG will not be doing any kind of Commonwealth tree or a Canadian ship. As far as I am concerned War Gaming can blow me.
  6. Looks like there will be no Canadian ships period. Why appease Canadian players (and naval history fans) when you can just make another USA Cruiser line. All we asked for is one damn ship, on our 150th birthday.
  7. I have stopped playing over the whole Canada Day thing, but have not uninstalled. Hoping they can make things right.
  8. ..and of course they could do Bastille day (and so they should).. It is, as many have said, just a game, but my country is my country and to have it so carelessly dismissed does not sit well with me. I will play the game again I'm sure, but right now I just can't. So War Thunder it is..
  9. Just wanted to add something for people who were looking for ways to make the Haida a little bit more interesting or unique here is something that while I don't think was specifically used on the Haida is a Canadian innovation and might make her stand out a bit (or not as the case may be) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffused_lighting_camouflage
  10. Just a quick update that WG did make a Canada Day post on their Facebook page. It may not seem like a big deal (and yes it is just a video game) but we ARE neighbours and well we are us and not say... North Korea ..or Iran or any other bunch of countries less friendly than Canada and I think a decent chunk of us Canucks throw our hard earned loonies in to the game and well I had just hoped that a 'Happy Birthday' (especially on our 150th) is just something a good American neighbour would do. Ok now where's my Haida???
  11. Cheers! 100% agree. I mean really what effort would it have taken them?? I submitted a ticket over it. You might want to do the same. It wont help but will get the complaint logged. I think we can take this as confirmation that WG disrespects Canada. They seem happy enough to take my money...
  12. How about you don't insult my country. OK and other than that, and I can't say I am surprised... 1. Yup Canada day is here and nope not even a mention. 2. Almost 40% of you don't care. 3. The general consensus is that Canada isn't even worth notice. At this point i'd say were not getting the Haida either. Thank you to the few that supported me in this, it is appreciated.
  13. No trait is universally Canadian, as we are all individuals. There might be tendencies built in to our culture but no absolutes. at least 116k but that isn't including the 30,000 or so that fought in Vietnam or Iraq or Rawanda or Bosnia or Somalia. That is a shame as that is an anniversary we will never get back. I suppose we can just educate them and let them know how we feel and then see if they learn or respect us as customers. Just after Sept 11 2001 US airspace was closed to all civilian air traffic. This resulted in 38 American jetliners being forced to land in Gander NFLD. where 7,000 Americans and their families were taken in and housed for the week until they could get home to the States. The entire population of Gander is maybe 11k... so if that kind of hospitality and care makes us your ' 5 year old cousin' then I am proud to be that 5 year old. Your post is ignorant, not funny. Show a little respect.
  14. I don't think this has to be a Canada vs USA thing. I just think the disrespect towards Canada needs to stop. The US is July 4, we are July 1 totally different days, so to say they needed to do theirs over ours because of market size or some other nonsense is just garbage. It is just WG spitting on their Canadian players/customers, plain and simple.
