I would imagine they are working on them, probably going to make a few premiums to be added to the "Commonwealth" ships at least. The forums get quite a few requests for them, one in particular whose name eludes me right now..

Just because... in reality even though Canada had one of the largest Navy’s in WW2 it was mostly escorts for convoys... not to exciting... so it would be difficult to put together a complete line.. eh

HMCS Haida is most likely all we will get .. a DD.. I will buy it!!!!!!!!!

Considering the T7 Pan-Asian DD is essentially a modified Tribal-class destroyer (if I'm not mistaken), it does give hope that Haida will come sooner rather than later.

Not according to Pigeon of War, who in his Haida post says that WoW just wanted to "judge the player response" and had no plans to bring her into the game.

And the response has been overwhelming ...if you look up how many times HMCS Haidas name has been post here ... a freaken lot ! ... it’s all about $... I’ll buy one and I bet many Canadians here will to .. and there’s a lot of us here

Hell, let us pre-order them to prove the money is there. If for some reason not enough people pre-order, WG can just issue a refund. I'll even buy two.

As a proud Canadian, I want Haida as much as the next guy, but I have to admit that it probably has zero traction outside of the north american server. You know, the server with the lowest player population.

The Gadjah Mada is a JKN class destroyer, they're quite separate from the Tribal class, smaller hull, different machinery arrangement (1 funnel instead of 2) and with more of a torpedo focus. The main gun battery is similar.

 

Haida will come at some point, but she'll be in the 'Commonwealth' tree. Other than that I think a destroyer line in the Commonwealth is possible but undesirable (100% British clones) and you might get a premium Canadian/Commonwealth cruiser or two.

As a US American I would love to see ships of other countries, especially those with a storied past, included in the game. The NA server may have the smallest player population but we spend more per player than the other servers. We tend to have the most disposable income, and even a Canadian Beaver (or whatever you people use for money) is probably worth tens of thousands of rubles. Canada, Mexico, and Brazil should all have ships in the game regardless of the size of our player base. Wargaming  should take care in whom they exclude, those  of us in this hemisphere are a bit nationalistic and tend to have long memories. They ignore us at their own peril.

Players don’t just play a ship because of nationality, Torps, speed,detection,smoke, guns, Wows does take some liberties when outfitting a ship, hopefully they do that to Haida cause a  DD is Just a DD no matter we’re its from and yea gotta admit Canadians have a nice reputation as a country.. heck they even make commercials touting that fact ... call it the nice DD

They could add fake Canadian paper ships to fill out a complete line

I've asked for her repeatedly (along with many, many others), and have been disappointed by the official/unofficial WoW response. Please don't misunderstand me, because I'm a DD main and I love Blys and Anshan, and own them both. But Canada (and Haida) played such a greater role in the war than either of those ships that, without taking anything away from them, Haida should have been, and should now be, included with those other stand alone DD's which are already in the game.

Yes , and Haida is still alive and well as a museum , was on her as a Sea Cadet when she was in Toronto and my next door neighbor served on her in WW2

An actual ship to survey and make an in-game model of, should make it easier to implement. Was a great sight by Ontario Place.

How about asking first why are there no complete RN, French, and Italian tech trees in the game already?  Or the Austria-Hungarian Navy, for that matter, even though it was only a major (Mediterranean) navy in WW1.  And then you'd have the answer to your question.

A fair point, though I'm not sure when it comes to developing the in-game models what the relative values are of being able to see an actual, existing ship vs having complete blueprints.

In all honesty, I'd rather see the Austria-Hungarian Navy first, given that it actually was a major naval power with its own battleships, etc., if only for the WW1 era and only in the Med.

I personally have little interest in the Haida.  At the same time, I'm not sure why it would have any less traction than say, the Blyskawika, the Polish tier 7 premium DD.  It would seem from your logic that the Blys wouldn't have any traction outside of the European and possibly Russian servers.

I can't say why Wargaming did the Blys. I'm simply putting forward the idea that WG may not believe there is any interest in the Haida outside of the NA server. Or, at least, it's not a priority against other options.

I think that the lines for nations should take precedence.  Austria-Hungary was a very legitimate naval power in the WW1 era and thus deserves a place in WoWS.
