WG team, I would be grateful if you could remedy this glaring oversight, omission or error.  The HMCS Haida has now been available for one full calander year, yet you have never made it available in the Tech Tree nor the Arsenal/Armoury for doubloons. 

I have been waiting for a full year for it to become available.  That is a long, long time for a game.  I had bought some doubloons before she became available in anticipation of her release.  It was a grave error.  

Can someone on staff please: 

  1. Make it happen now; or
  2. Advise when it will become available for acquisition for doubloons - and how much for; or
  3. Advise that it will never become available for doubloons (where I will likely quit the game, but you wont care anyway, but still).  

I think waiting a full year is plenty enough time.  I dont think I am being unreasonable here.

Was there some sort of contest or a way to win her?  With Ranked Sprint happening SOON (TM) might be a great time to pick up some cash.    

How did I get her AND the Canadian camo?  I am not Canadian or Canadien!

FYI mine shows 5.7 km surface spotting which is really low for a Tier 7.  It is hilarious when being chased as it has a 102mm secondary gun on the back shootin away at your pursuer.

Wish I could gift it as it only got used last week.  Sat forever.

Sometimes I feel bad I have all these premiums that people are waiting to buy or can't buy and I never play them. I wish you could give a prem ship you own to someone.

At the pace we are going I expect nothing on July 4th either. I can't recall if there were ANY doubloon discounts on premium ships since the Christmas Holidays. In the meantime I got a pile of doubloons that I would like to spend, but not at the full prices most of these things go. :Smile_sceptic:

Hey UN, I would think as an Aussie you would want Sydney, Canberra, or Daring/Vampire II, sooner than some ole’ Canuck thing...

Thought LWM was the Haida fanatic! :cap_horn:

I do blame LWM.  She had me at cobra-chicken...

I wouldnt be against more Australian/Commonwealth ships, but I am a fairly patient person where those will come eventually. But the Haida is here right now - but just out of reach...

I received a Twitch mission which, if completed, rewards the Haida for three days.  Is there some other way to earn her?

It may be not for everybody, but Haida is in absolutely no way a trash ship.  Mutsuki is trash.

Thankfully, Ace saved the day.  Confirmation bias ftw!!!

Humor me ... why is this a concern? You can't get doubloons for free and you still have to whip out your credit card in the shop regardless, no?

I would think that at some point a RN county class ship would need to be added. But I guess the cost/ benefit of creating it would need to be figured. I don't know if WG did that well with the Exeter.

So did I. Then I saw the number 3 and a clock face icon. I said no. Not doing that mission.

Yes both are premium, but haida is mid winrate per global stats so good luck with the p2w analysis... Always a hater.. Actually 8 dds are above the haida in winrates,

Haida is the strongest DD for T7 Sprint mainly because it has the best concealment with some of the best overall gun dpm at the tier.  It also has long creeping smoke plus hydro which makes it a cap monster.  Go ahead and check off a generous health pool and HE alpha.  Granted, it lacks the relative ability to influence matches once all the DD's are dead...but if you killed all of the red DD's...you should be on the winning side.  Bad gun angles, poor fire chance, and a pitiful(high damage but low number) torp rack don't really cancel out the massive advantages this ship has.

The Haida is by far the best DD at T7 for a pure T7 match.  It's not really close.

There should be some epic confrontations between Haida's and Belfast's in a couple of days.

If you want to roll into Sprint with the perceived darlings...you're taking: Haida, Belfast, Sinop.

She uptiers great also, concealment doesn't have a tier.... Z39 has more health and better hydro but I have a cpl tricks for haida also. It'll be fun... Gadja and z is higher on winrates and should do well but something I learned in tier 10 ranked battles will Carry over that is an advantage for the haida I'll be using... I'll share my stats in the sprint after the sprint. 😉 She's not for everyone and it actually only dawned on me while using my gearing in ranked.
