Those who want Haida added are quite vocal, and seeing as it's a small ship (not hard to model), it could be rolled out fairly quickly. However, I don't get a sense for a clear state of the ship, despite its popularity.

 

If it were a premium, it could be released with great fanfare and turn a tidy profit for WG. The same goes to a lesser degree for a FXP or clan resources ship.

If it were part of a tech tree, other Canadian ships could make a parallel appearance.

 

What do you all think?

You forgot to list Russian BBs which are probably as likely as not to come out before Italian BBs.

Since there wasn't a "Before everything" option, I just selected all of them.

There is no option for not prioritizing Haida over any of the answers in question #1.

Back in the day when I was a Sea Cadet, I got to spend some time training in her when she was alongside at Ontario Place. I even got to fire her guns, albeit with blanks...lol. To see Haida in the game would bring great joy to me. Hopefully not gimped in any way and maybe even add a Canadian Commander?

Yep i selected them all as i would like Haida before anything else and happy to pay for it.

The word is that getting it in game is mired in some kinda Gov't ownership/permissions issues.

Again..i will buy it the second it appears.

so WG if you want my money...and i know you do.

 

..GET ER DONE!

Statistically that's not true.

All FXP ships so far have had more fanfare than the traditional premium, each having their own unique dedicated update. FxP ships tend also to be rarer and thus have more status than usual.

However currently the ship is unlikely to come out in the near future, on the basis of the Haida museum is playing the legal game.

I think Parks Canada (Canadian Government) owns the rights to her. Wargaming would have to negotiate with them for use and possibly pay them. They could get around it and honor the RCN with one her sisters like Iroquois. I think that would be much cooler than Cossak

This ship is in great demand here and has been for years. I get the impression the hurdles are with Parks Canada, not Wargaming.

They expect a compensation from any money made from her which i heard rumors of is nearly 30%

I’ve been on the HMCS Haida when she was in Toronto as a Sea Cadet and my next door Neighbor served on her in WW2,the ship still exists today and know doubt would be a Big seller ... weather the Russians see this point is another story ... come on Ruskies spread it around

I am nowhere close to being an expert, but I believe that Parks Canada holds the rights to the specific ship and as such can limit access to it for photography, research, etc. But I don't think that they can limit depictions of the ship from information that is in public domain. But, like I said, I have no real idea of the intricacies involved. Commercial photography requires a permit from parks Canada and that is all they mention. They don't say anything about holding the rights to any depiction of it or use of its name, etc. I'm not sure how far that can go either. Obviously if someone is making a documentary about Hamilton and has the Haida in long distance shots, does park's Canada hold the rights to it in that instance? I highly doubt it. It's not on their property. They can't limit pictures of something easily visible in public.

I believe one of the CCs said they are aware of the demand. The hurdle appears to be Parks Canada and rights for use.  There's only so  much Wargaming will be wiling to fork over. That's why I think they may end up using one of Haida's Canadian sisters like Iroquois. It would allow them to honor the RCN without having to deal with the rights issue. Iroquois wasn't preserved but also had an excellent war record.  It's kind of like how they are getting around the issue of the (very different) issue of the General Belgrano by using the Nueve de Julio
