l just read that wows has 4 new prems coming out a IJN BB, a Italian cruiser, and 2 DD's French and German.

 

For how long on this forum have we been pushing for the Haida?

Canada's birthday this year certainly would have been a nice gesture to see her offered as a premium 2017 is fading away fast.

 

So yeah RCN was not a Navy of many capital ships but we had some hella good DD's and escorts and we were only the 4th largest Navy in WWII.

The bullets and food that supported the war in Europe got their mainly due to the RCN and a fantastic Merchant Marine.

 

WOWS l know l'm not the only one wondering wth is the problem? Sorry but l am just venting my frustration here obscure navy's are represented but NOT 1 RCN ship?

Not a Canadian, but I feel for y'all.  It really doesn't make much sense to me either.  Especially given the number of players on the NA server that are from Canada, and who would very likely open their wallets in a heartbeat for a RCN ship.  Heck, depending on what it was, I would even do so.

Have Justin T. give Vlad P. a call, I'm sure something can be arranged, lets say exclusive mining rights to all your Uranium in exchange for a Haida premium?

Honestly, WG may not yet know what they're going to do with RCN ships in regards to their defining traits. It's not as simple as historical stats>game stats>testing>release. They have to decide what character that the line will have.

Oui. But seriously, we don't know what the Commonwealth will bring. Perth has been pulled back behind the curtain, and Vampire is too low tier to stand out.

4th largest for a week or two at the end of the war, when the Kreigsmarine, Imperial Japanese Navy, Regia Marina, and Marine Nationale were sunk, scuttled, disbanded respectively. My understanding is that the RCN then shrunk rapidly as Canada began to demobilise back for peacetime. Not disrespecting the role the RCN played, but just wanted to add some context.

 

Regarding Haida, WG is a company who wants money, so they'll go with what makes them most cash. I strongly suspect that Germans, Japanese, French, and Italian navies are in greater demand globally and Haida has more of a niche audience. The Pan Asia line is just there because of rich Chinese people. Just going to have to wait. At least it shouldn't take any longer than the RN DD line. WG just need a Tribal class to copypaste Haida from over a lunchbreak.

I doubt the Tribal will be in the first RN DD line, too much of an outlier with one set of torpedo tubes and lots of guns.

They don't need anything. Just give Haida single-launch torps. Messing with 'traits' produces rubbish like Pan-Asian DD with radar and smoke.

I hear you.  With it being Canada's 150th I thought it would be a no-brainer to spring her on us on Canada day, but instead, we didn't even get a mention on Canada day.  I've just got back to playing WOWS and I'm still not sure why I didn't uninstall, but I didn't.

I am still really not happy with Canada being completely dismissed, but from recent posts from Pigeon of war, it would seem that while it is far from a fait accompli, it is also not a dead issue, and so I am holding out hope.

whether it will be before the year is out seems maybe less likely but we can hope. 

If nothing else we have a couple of good picks for legendary Canadian captains in James T kirk and Malcolm Reynolds.

Canadians kinda need to give it a rest a bit with the "4th largest navy" line. I'm Canadian myself, in case you were half out of your seat to go drum up a lynch mob at the nearest Timmies.

 

The vast bulk of our contribution to the naval war were corvettes and small boats. It was a necessary job, and a very tough job that we did well. But it was not a glamorous job. It's not the kind of job that fits into this game. 

 

Still absolutely no reason not to have introduced Haida by this point, tho.

As far as NA server goes, Haida is now the most requested premium ship now that Big E is in the game. Sub Octavian did post a comment on Reddit that said they are working on Haida, whatever that means.

 

So yeah, it will be bought on this server for sure. European's will have an interest for it as well. the other servers... not as much, about the same as we do for Huang He

William Shatner, who played the original James T. Kirk, is a Canadian. However, James T. Kirk will be born, in 2233, in Riverside Iowa USA. Kirk's a AMERICAN! :Smile_honoring:

The Tribal class destroyers were a big deal in WW2, and Haifa has been in high demand for a long while now. I'm surprised it hasn't happened yet. Hell, Haida's paired ship, Blyskawica, has been in game ages now. Please give us a tier 7 Haifa already so that we can div these two up.

There arent enough Canucks playing this game to make the Haida profitable, there will be more Chinese and Korean ships added LONG before any Canadian variant of any ship is put into the game....

 

Likely long after many of us have left.....certainly after I have thanks to all the gimmicky crap they are pulling lately.

Sub_Octavian already said "they're working on it". Just not to tell Pigeon. Take that how you will.

 

I don't think it'll show up any earlier than 2018 though.

LOL, sure he is.  Just listen how naturally he recites the US Constitution.  You can tell Shatner can't say the words and act straight.
