Hey Captains!

Soon you will have the opportunity to acquire one of the most venerated ships in Canada, HMCS Haida. I recall last year receiving LOTS of feedback to get this ship into the game, in this sub-section of the forum particularly.  @LittleWhiteMouse in particular was was extremely vocal about this ship. Thanks to talking to lots of colleagues at the development studio in St. Petersburg, lots of patience from @Ev1n_NA , and a lot of hard work from our historical research team, the ship will soon be in the game.

It was an interesting journey to help make this ship happen, and I hope you all enjoy it when it does arrive!

Yup, In before Mouse. Lots of people will like this. Now if they introduce it with a 10 point special Captain for the Common Wealth line (like Doe and the rest) we will have something.

Thank you for bringing another storied and decorated premium ship into the game. She went on to serve in the Korean War where she undertook bombardment missions, one of which destroyed a North Korean freight train carrying weapons and supplies. Though I don't exactly identify as being Canadian in terms of nationality, it's cool to see a ship from Canada. :))

Good to see her finally arrive after all of the kicking an screaming from the Canadian fans hahaha!

One question, there was a leak about Haida's flag and a Canada flag permacamo, can you comment on how those (or if) will be included with Haida?

My guess is entirely dependent on tiering. If 7, compare with Sims and Blyskawica as well as Z-39. If 8, compare with Kidd, Asashio, etc.

AWESOME!!!! Just can't wait!  Thanks to everyone that made this possible. There is a light a the end of the tunnel and it does not look to be a Train's headlight! :)

I am looking forward to sail this one!!

So when's Cossack coming?

My opinion won't be popular here on the NA server but I would prefer to have the Tribal class debut with the nation that designed her: Cossack first, Haida coming shortly afterwards in second. Cossack was announced how long ago compared to Haida?

Currently the game is in the situation where Pan-Asia has more British designed DDs than Britain, and if Haida comes first then the Commonwealth will also have more British designed DDs than Britain. The UK hasn't had anything since Gallant, and Campbeltown frankly doesn't count since it's a regurgitated USN Wickes class.

So WG why is it do difficult for you guys to make a RN DD line and more British designed premium DDs? Between all the UK DDs serving other tech trees, Gallant, the Anthony from the past Dunkirk operation you already have the making of at least half the line. Why is it so difficult for WG to handle British ships?

 

Don't get me wrong. I'm happy for you Canadians who haven't had anything at all til now. And if WG makes a marathon out of Haida, well it's free stuff and I like free stuff. But I'm rather vexed atm that WG tends to handle the addition of British ships so damn badly.

I imagine that after all the requests WG has received, it will be top dollar.

Super_Dreadnought, while your reasoning is sound, you need to take into consideration a few important details:

- British tech tree ships currently in the game: 18
- British premium ships currently in the game: 7
- British premium destroyers currently in the game: 2
- Canadian anything at all currently in the game: zilch

That's why Haida needs to come first. Also, Haida is currently the only Tribal class destroyer still intact as she's a museum ship. All others have either been sunk or scrapped. You can go visit her yourself in Hamilton, Ontario.

@Pigeon_of_War, I am totally ready for this ship to be released! I, like many other Canadians, have been eagerly waiting to see this ship (or ANY Canadian ship really) in game for years! I just hope her release specs make her a 'GudBote'. Currently, I believe she still needs a touch more buffing. Just to try something different, I'd love to see her dual 102mm secondaries buffed to become crazy accurate (without commander skills or upgrades) within their gun range. Really turn Haida into an in your face brawler ;)

 Well that's really cool I would love to buy it but I'm not going to put any more money into this game with the way it is for destroyer play

 It's too bad I used to love this game:Smile_facepalm:
