Haida is rapidly becoming my favourite DD. This ship is King of capping, bullies any other dd out of the cap. I love it!

Even bullies CL/CA's out of cap. I met a red Perth at B cap. We circled the island twice before he ran and I capped.

Frustrating as hell. Picked up B and C only for the team to plop themselves in the middle of Haven to be promptly culled, thrusting me into a 5 vs 1 situation where all five had more than half their hp left. Proceeded to in the last 5 minutes take out Indianapolis, Fubuki, Graf Spee and Akatsuki consecutively in that order, only to be left with 2 minutes where the New York was sailing out of range and a 30 point gap that couldn't be filled even if I reached the nearest cap.

Hey

Even though it might have been a loss; at least you did your job and went down fighting and clearly showed who did much of the work.  Well done.

My first kill in my Haida was another Haida..

Mine was a Fletcher.  That's the moment I knew I was dealing with a very special ship.  :fish_cute_2:

@Bill_Halsey, you're going to have to change your signature.  When I heard special upgrade modules were going to be available in the Arsenal, I was looking forward to stacking everything up on Perth.  Fortunately Haida came along just before I burned the coal on that plan.

Very nicely done, one and all.  It makes me very happy to see people enjoying this ship.

oh yes. we are enjoying the ride on the razors edge.

but - You are not a full fledged haida Captain until you get your first close quarters expert achievement. :cap_haloween:

i am now on 41,5k average damage and a little over 1.1 average kills per battle. Once you make her work, 80k+ games are not a problem anymore. 

but it takes effort. 

but people already call this ship op or at least borderline op. Total [edited] imo. 

 

one of my best games so far.

I have done the Grand Slam-only once- in Shiratsuyu.  Sank a DD, a CA, a BB, and a CV. Sadly, it was a loss.

Very much enjoying playing this little ship (full disclosure is that my paternal grandparents were from Quebec).  I know that it was just a Coop battle, but what fun!

This is by far my best ship. Games like this are starting to get almost common.

I respect you good sir, but the Kidd does not. I bought Haida because I love the Kidd and bulling caps, and Haida is great at it. But Kidd eats damage and repairs it. Long live the Ki(dd)ng.

All that aside I'm glad you are enjoying Haida, and hope to meet you in a cap some day and we can settle this little debate destroyer to destroyer.

This one was an even worse exercise in frustration due to how back breaking it was what with the dominoes and how empty the win felt. The point tip over was really only due to an enemy cv being a spud. It was literally sitting at D9 north of the F9 where I chased the kamikaze east to. In other words, 3 minutes of where I was headed being obvious. Kudos to Fushun and Gneisenau though.

Oddly enough, it was my last game for the night or early morning, whichever 3 is, before going down to actually visit her.

2nd Hat trick.. sole base defender when everyone else went lemming. Lyon and Gallant vs Haida. Engagement range 4 km. That's were the secondary hit went.

I just wish they would get rid of the G63 on the hull and put the proper number on the side

G63 was her pennant number until the early 50s. The config that's used in the game is Haida in her WW2 fit.

Hat Trick # 3. Solo kill a full health BB. difficultly depends on tier.

Spoiler

Fault Line Top Tier

 

shot-18_10.02_23_26.27-0659.thumb.jpg.79b2dc515c15b5a138f90dc9281c6317.jpg

 

Close to the end and our side just about had it in the bag and everyone save me was rushing to the enemy cap. I noticed red BB and our base was wide open. typed that we need a ship to help me find him. Got a ribbit in repose so went toward the last known position which was the north end of torpedo alley. Turned on the hydro near the island and there he was. fired 4 x single shot torps near the end of the island and angled away. All 4 connected and left him with 2k health. He shot an HE volley and got 4k damage off me.  Proceed to set him on fire and burned him.

One lesson I learned is that the Haida is weak in the alpha strike department. A second launcher  would had killed the QE for a Dev Strike.  A tactic I should had use is to maybe launch 2 torpedoes to force him to use damage control and then launch the other 2 afterwards. Using this tatic against a Massachusetts or Bismark would had been suicidal. I believe the QE was waiting for folks to run to their base while he proceeded to cap our base. Or he was waiting to ambush some folks.  Bad for him because his ambush got turned around him. Good for me because I got top spot on the leader board.
