  1. I have stopped playing over the whole Canada Day thing, but have not uninstalled. Hoping they can make things right.
  2. ..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..
  3. 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
  4. 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???
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Well good to see ya!! :-)
  10. Hanz? As in Hanz from 'Minions' in WOT??
  11. You are probably right. I just don't like seeing Canada being disrespected. lol no one is as big as the States. We still make the top 10 of global economies, which isn't bad considering our population and relative newness as a nation. Well yes, clearly they planned nothing. This is supposed to make me feel better about this? "It's OK Canada, because you really REALLY don't matter"
  12. WG would be crazy to not have a US independence day thing. I have no issue with the States being recognized. It is the omission of Canada that I do have an issue with. We are July 1st they are July 4th. You'd think they'd find some wiggle room to work around it. i mean, not sure if it was wows or wot..but they did a Brazil event.. but can't do Canada..wth?
  13. Well yes, true, but I'm not saying to not have 4th of July stuff. I'm just saying don't do it at the expense of Canada. I think Canada is worth being patriotic about. Granted many of them wont be naval powers but the Commonwealth is 52 nations. Really no reason they can't work on both though. Let's see what happens tomorrow I suppose...
  14. First of all I'd like to start by saying that this is directed toward Wargaming as a whole and not at Pigeon personally, as I think he has put some effort in to trying to get Canada represented and is at least trying to do things like gauge support for things like the Haida That being said there is CLEARLY support for the Haida. Canada played a clear, active and important role in the second world war. It is also common for WG to have some sort of special on whichever nations birthday/day of independence. Well, tomorrow is Canada's 150th anniversary and I think many of us, where expecting if not an announcement of the Haida were expecting something.. a special.. a flag... but nope instead today we start five days of America. oh yay. Good on you, America, enjoy your day (and all the extra days that tread over ours). Just think it is wrong to be passed over when there are so many Canadian players/contributors. I'll wait until tomorrow and maybe, hopefully there will be something, but I suspect that today will be my last day playing any WG games.
