Shut up and take my money: Will we see the Haida for Canada Day?

Since destroyer chat is pretty toxic, going to discuss this here.  A surviving tribal class museum ship, well decorated, and it is Canada's 150th Anniversary this year.  Two months til Canada Day.  Is one premium higher tier I would actually buy.

 

I could ramble about it, but it has been talked elsewhere, but share the love of this beautiful and strong lady.

Considering nothing has even been leaked of her yet, nor announced or data mined, I seriously doubt it. She would have to be added in and announced within a week or two at the latest for them to even have time to get her ready, tested, and out by then. And that's assuming they have no problems with her in testing and gets released as is. Basically is no time to get her out by then.

 

Though, another game just added the Tribals in as they first DDs and are about to start testing.

Don't think it could be done in time really.

 

Also mobile wiki looks weird....

Shame....  I wonder why WG has put off the tribals anyways.  I mean they are a pretty important part of the atlantic front.

Possibly. Though I have no doubt that Haida will come as a premium at one point.

Well I would imagine HMS Cossack in the tree and then Haida as a Commonwealth prem.

Will the Cossack come complete with complementary Stalinium buff?

Only if she flies the glorious flag of Stalin himself. And is in the VMF line :D

No but 100% chance to be sent to gulag because Cossack's fought against glorious peoples revolutionary army in the White-Russian Army.

If they picked one of the Clemson Town-class ships, made a premium Clemson Canadian ship (maybe lower the detection slightly and give it cool camo), I would buy one in a second. Especially if they made the captain swappable with RN ships.

That would be mandatory.  Canada and Britain still have strong ties.  During WW1 and WW2, Canada and Britain worked as one unit for the most part.  Even technical, swapping tribal classes isnt really a big difference despite the custom options Canada requested.

There is very little I wouldn't give up to get the Haida ingame.

Doesn't mean it would be mandatory or that it would even happen. Look what they did with Perth. Commonwealth ships are being counted as their own nation in game.

Canadian solidarity... Disappoints....

 

Maybe will get an announcement at least.  Happy birthday Canada, we are working on this present, in the meantime, epic historical documentary vid.  They do the ship videos so well.

While not a Canuck, I think this is a very good idea.  Would like to see this happen as this should be a very playable ship.  +1 OP.

I agree with renegadestatuz that the timing is unfortunately unlikely. 

 

She'll probably be a 'Commonwealth' ship which is kind of infuriating. 'Commonwealth' Australian and Canadian ships can swap skippers, but not Australian/British or Canadian/British - riiigghhty then.

We don't know for sure, Kidd came out of nowhere if I recall correctly. We still have two months, plenty of time to add a ship, especially if it's currently being internally tested or something along those lines. LittleWhiteMouse has hinted at Haida coming soon and a reddit QnA a few months ago stated that Haida was quickly surpassing Enterprise by pure requests alone.

 

That whole thing annoys me, especially when Commonwealth crew in WWII were swapped around more than you would think.
