Canadian Pride!

146 posts in this topic

I have to voice my pride because this is also Victory Belles's selling point of adding all the waring naval nations into the mix. It makes me overly proud that Canadians are finally back where they belong (in a World War game) with no political washing, or political bias to them. I loved Silent Hunter 3 for adding in every nation possible for variety of encounters, as well as Victory at Sea's attempt for adding in variety. It's a real shame game developers People claim Canada's contribution was minor, yet I don't see it as such.

 

- HMCS Saguenay (D79)

 

 

 

Saguenay.jpg

Saguenay is a bit odd to me because of her 'generic' appearing art. WIth that in mind, I'm hoping for her to eventually gain some formal art [This style] to make herself more epic for her bow & stern being blown. Same with being rammed, & even causing a German freighter to damage itself in fear. She is one tough beauty, and that I still see.

 

VB is lucky that I'm banking all my hopes onto her being awesome within the game + alternate costumes/outfits :)

 

------------

 

How can I not be proud? More so as a Canadian.

 

I truly & genuinely can't wait to play as the Canadians themselves. I can't wait to command the RCN [Royal Canadian Navy] to regain that lost pride, as well as to further familiarize myself with the various "Forgotten Beauties" within. I truly want to recruit HMCS Saguenay, HMCS Skeena, HMCS Ottawa (& her reincarnations), HMCS Prince Robert, HMCS Prince David, HMCS Prince Henry, HMCS Haida, HMCS Huron, HMCS Athabaskan, HMCS Iroquious, HMCS Uganda (later Quebec), HMCS Ontario, among numerous others, even within the River Class. Way too many to note. Was even made aware on Reddit of 'HMCS Assiniboine' for ramming the same Submarine twice. I could expect her personality to reflect that, maybe even a memento, or similar. Another being HMCS Ville de Quebec (Flower-Class Corvette) for ramming a submarine. After some skimming, I'd also have to consider adding HMCS Cape Breton (K350) and HMCS New Glasgow for their class type.

 

I'm mainly expecting HMCS Saguenay & Skeena at first. Same with the 'Trio Prince Navy' on the Pacific side of things. Do not underestimate the might of the Canadian navy, even if I do have to recruit Nera (Italy), and various others :). Hoping they'll even try to gain in contact with Himeka to do a voice for some French Canadian. Maybe HMCS Ville de Quebec? A Corvette class, if they're added in.

 

I have much pride because I see much beauty within the RCN, more so when 'animefied' into Kanmusu/Belles. It's now KanColle's turn to follow Victory Belles's lead. Let's see if I'm allowed to command my RCN in full, and if I can eventually boost it to near full combat capacity within the game this March 2017. Can't wait! :) Black Chicken Studio happily touched on a sweet-spot of mine that I'm now expecting to be expanded on because other studios, again, prefer to be simple minded. Thank again for HMCS Saguenay! Can't wait to hear her French-Canadian voice over.

Edit:

 

 

 

 

I just annoyingly found out that the 'Trio Prince Navy' where commissioned late into service in 1940 so I'll have to wait a long while to even see them in VB. I assumed 1939 because they were an early demand for the Canadians which now bugs me, even because they're not really assault ships. They were meant more as a basic defense for the Japanese + to attack merchants, which they actually did. They were then converted seperatly into troop troop transport; Robert into A/A. They still however were useful. Seeing them, I'd even expect to see Bismarck in the '40's update.

 

That just irritated me. Well, I'll at least enjoy the destroyers at the least.

 

 

 

Noteworthy Canadian Vessels:

 

 

 

 

Canadian Vessels of Interest/Belles:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ships_of_the_Royal_Canadian_Navy <- A list for reference.

  • HMCS Saguenay - River-Class Destoryer (Already in, & front page)
  • HMCS Skeena - River Class Destroyer (Saguenay's sister)
  • HMCS Assiniboine - River-Class Destroyer (U-210 rammer)
  • HMCS Haida (G63) - Tribal-Class Destroyer (Canada's pride, and at times a flagship. She's now a museum ship.)
  • HMCS Huron (G24) - Tribal-Class Destroyer
  • HMCS Iroquious - Tribal-Class Destroyer. She even escorted Prinz Eugen.
  • HMCS Athabaskan (G07) - Tribal-Class Destroyer (She perished in a torpedo attack, yet had a reincarnation as (R79), nicknamed 'Athabaskan II' post-war.)
  • HMCS U-190 - A German submarine which sunk HMCS Esquimuilt (in a sleeping state) which then was used in a Canadian manner. I doubt it, yet I'd love to see her as a German, then with a Canadian personality in the game.
  • HMCS Prince Robert - Armed Merchant Cruiser & an AA vessel. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart.
  • HMCS Prince Henry - Armed Merchant Cruiser & Troop Transport. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart.
  • HMCS Prince David - Armed Merchant Cruiser & Troop Transport. One of the three Prince vessels acting as a navy apart.
  • HMCS Uganda - Crown Colony Class Light Cruiser which saw battles in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, & even Pacific. Her radar assisted in spotting Japanese, even daily of Japanese morning air-raids. She even had her episode of mutiny when her Canadian identity was being suppressed by Americans.
  • HMCS Ontario - Minatour-Class Light Cruiser which was in service during WW2, yet came too late to see action. She was in the Pacific, and visit Japan, yet turned into a training ship.

 

(Not counting the aircraft carriers because it's half & half. Similar to how I avoided adding in American lent ships when focusing purely on Canadian-made or Canadian manned ships from the get-go. That, or they had to be overly noteworthy to go from British to Canadian hands, such as the HMCS Uganda.)

My great grandfather Joined WWII by enlisting through Canada. He was a German who had only been in the America's for less than ten years and he saw Canada as his opportunity to save 'his people' from repeating WWI. I don't know all the details. He was 90 when I was 8, so I was too young to understand most of it. and he spoke primarily German until the day he died and I can't speak any. But I do remember him saying Trust Canada. If you can't trust them to do the right thing you can't trust anyone to.

 

He was a German American with a real soft spot for our northern neighbors. I think he would agree your pride is well deserved and under appreciated.

We're both broken records because we can finally be proud :P. So many games decide to be cookie cutters that I can now boast three games: This, Victory at Sea, & Silent Hunter 3. I really loved Silent Hunter 3 <3. I'm of course going to be obnoxiously proud because I'm finally given the chance to connect.

Oh! Awesome! I love hearing storties like this, among others. Been hearing how we Canadians treated our prisoners as humans, if we had to detain them for safety reasons. How we eventually allowed them to work in the farms, to then re-integrate into society. I don't remember reading any hate, just that people were obviously crying about war-abuse that it, from a written standpoint, makes sense to be cautious.

 

And it's a shame you didn't hear much from his POV. I hope he wrote it down, or something. And those words "Trust Canada" make me proud, and I can genuinely feel strength in them with the way it's worded here. We've helped the Dutch, as well as many others, and interesting hearing the small side of things also. Thanks for those words.

Also, I've been itching to post this image, so I'll do so now.

 

HMCS Ville de Quebec (Flower-Class Corvette) ramming a German submarine. Found quite a few Canadian vessels enjoyed ramming submarines that if more Canadian Belles are added that they should have a bonus to ASW stats. I mean, higher than normal for those that actually did ramming. Even their personality should show this. I'm highly amused.

Oh, how I want to rage in frustration for not finding this earlier. Someone drew HMCS Ville de Quebec in her KanColle wear. I want to bang my head in frustration for not finding this before Victory Belles. BAH!

Finding her neat though. Glad to be stumbling across more RCN love <3

Seeing as how we fought in WW1 & especially in WW2, we truly do have a warrior's honour & pride. We fight to the last :P

 

 

Maybe not in 2016, but back then it rings heavily. It makes me believe the blood has been diluted that we're no longer Klingons at heart, weakened by diplomatic talks. (I say, trying to keep some Klingon references in, while mixing it with Klingon references)

Once we get to what was the mid-late part of WWII, HMCS Haida hopefully becomes prominent.

 

She's also one of those ships that had a pyromaniac streak, setting quite a few German ships ablaze.

You can have him. I simply see him as a playboy pimp actor in the wrong line of career. He's good at acting that it just proves people enjoy seeing low-grade acting skills in politics. It bugs me, especially when woman swoon & flock to him only because of the seduction skills he has, and his last name. That's the only reason I see him there. You're free to have him, as well as Justin Bieber. Both of them leave a dark mark on Canada T_T

I'm so looking forward to when she comes around! Had fun reading how she beached a German Destroyer with her sister. She's a lovely pride of our navy, even being a flagship to watching a vengeance kill on a captured/surrendered German submarine. Her, and others, had their vengeance sinking that U-boat that it makes me see her having a darker personality.

 

It also bugs me that the 'Trio Prince Navy' came in 1940. I'll see them in the second major update, I guess. I wish to have had them from the get-go [Noted this in an edit & spoiler in first post]. Guess I'll familiarize myself with the River-class destroyers first.

Can't wait to see more as they're released weekly on Friday. Curious to see HMCS Skeena next :)

 

The hype is real, but now I feel I'm being far too obnoxious. Even so, I felt myself being knocked down a few pegs after reading a few things that some may be purposely delayed by my wordings & such. Even so, I took the time to rediscover what my flag looked like back then (even though I know; Ontario style), yet was wondering if we could get away with some few 'playful' modern era Canadian flag in alternate costumes, or diplomacy type styles. The bright red & white that makes me & my fellow Canadians proud in our current era; Red Ensign to those older folks.

 

- Red Ensign:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Red_Ensign

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/66/Canadian_Red_Ensign_1921-1957.svg/1000px-Canadian_Red_Ensign_1921-1957.svg.png

 

- Canadian Flag:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Canada

(Obvious, yet sharing anyways.)

 

I wonder if it's even possible to have both. Mainly the 'Red Ensign', yet also the Canadian flag in alternate for 'alternate costumes' type thing. I feel more proud to the Canadian flag, yet the veterans of old (WW2) feel more attached to the Red Ensign. When the flag was supposed to be modernized the veterans threw a major uproar, same with the civilians. Just as they are attached to the old, I'm attached to the new, yet I can let it slide.

 

Now I feel like I'm demanding things that I feel horrible. I now hate this feeling because I shouldn't be feeling, nor saying this in the first place. Feels like I'm walking on a thin wire which nothing further could be done. Honestly, I feel paranoid.

Actually Arctic that's pretty neat. Some national flags have changed a lot since '39 for lots of reasons. The old flags make the game more accurate. Even if you can't tell the difference with the U.S. flag.

I suspect it would primarily be the '39 flags, they probably wouldn't do *too* ahistorical flags, as the maple leaf is relatively modern.

Ya, in a way it is. I guess I'll just have to get myself used to them. I saw them briefly in Silent Hunter 3, yet never really got myself attached to them because of my present day Canadian flag. That, and they look like your standard provincial flag. The 'Red Ensign' looks like an Ontario flag to me :P. I guess it's neat in its own way. That, and I remember seeing the US flag having circle starts going into a grid-like pattern for more states that joined.

Mostly the 'Red Ensign' eh? If anybody from that time was still alive I bet they'd be saluting that flag still, recalling their experiences in and outside of war time. This would have made them happy to have seen that, similar to how I view my more proud & colorful red & white maple leaf flag.

 

I guess it's still out of the question for any alternate costumes and the like? from the looks of it, I guess it is out of the question.

Thanks to this thread - [link] - I've been looking at HMCS Prince Robert with how she caught Weser so I'm now pondering if it's possible to unlock 'war prizes' as bonuses. HMCS Prince Robert fought to have Weser under control from a failed scuttle/fire attempt that Weser became ours, ironically sunk by the Germans in return. That in mind, I'm wondering if it's possible to do a little mission to capture Weser with Prince Robert to then have some supply bonuses happening with & on the side. That be somewhat amusing to see while adding a little noteworthy touch to the whole picture :D

 

Even curious how supply even works, and if we can get bonuses, and such. I'd happily make use of my Trio Navy to do armed supply runs, similar to how you would treat Akitsumaru in KanColle with those landing crafts. That, and having the 'Trio prince Navy' armed to the teeth with whatever rules Victory Belles allows.

 

I do have to wonder though if Corvettes shall be added, or if it's simply a focus to Destroyers & up. HMCS Sackville (and now HMCS Ville de Quebec) is someone I'm noting more of when Google searching. That, and these RCN Flower-Class Corvettes have nice emblems painted on their turrets which I would love to see displayed in battle. They probably won't be useful in the fiercer battles, yet when submarines are of concern I'd happily use them. That, and for any extended expansions on how one gains supplies in this game. If Canadians are going to suffer economically in this game then I want to focus on convoy & resources runs, similar to what I keep doing in KanColle. If there are places I can farm, then I'll do the farming with my proud Canadian Belles :)

No comment on prizes, but at least in '39 the corvettes aren't included. Still, you never know as we go along...:)

@Legate of Mineta:

 

Of course. Classified information until Beta & beyond. At least you know what I'm thinking :P. Hmm, ya. I was fearing as much and was prepared for that type of answer. As you open up the map for more things to happen then I'd expect everything to be overly fun & detailed. Also, something to note for the whole 'Red Ensign' & 'Canadian Flag' bit. I'd be fine just seeing the Canadian Maple on the uniform somewhere. Even on HMCS Saguenay, somewhere.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Halifax_(K237)Look at Halifax's funnel.

 

----------

 

Just something to note because I'm now bringing up Flower-Class Corvettes. They in themselves ended up being overly awesome that I wish they carried such to their destroyers & light cruiser side of things. The whole emblem thing on their turrets, the way they fought close-quarters with submarines (scraping & ramming), as well as other brutal tactics. Braving brutal Atlantic weather, and even struggling to keep the convoys safe. HMCS Haida being one of them, yet wanting to stumble across more stories in scale of Haida & these Corvettes. It's hard to when I'm constantly finding people spitting on our WW2 naval history (Canadian & foreigners alike).

 

The part I want to note in this post itself are the various Flower-Class Corvette Turrent emblems.

 

HMCS Shediac: (K110)

HMCS Calgary:

HMCS Ville de Quebec (K242):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Ville_de_Quebec_(K242)

(Has a full-blown emblem on the front turret on the side for others to admire. Also the Submarine rammer.)

 

HMCS Fennel (K194):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Fennel_(K194)

(You have to look carefully at the front turret in that preview image.)

 

HMCS Fredericton (K245):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Fredericton_(K245)

Thise one could have easily had it on her turret, yet added it to her bridge.)

 

HMCS Buctouche (K179):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Buctouche_(K179)
(She's a fun one with an unofficial bad with a bucking bronco & hitler. Would be amusing to have that displayed somewhere.)

 

HMCS Bittersweet (K182):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Bittersweet_(K182)

(Hard to tell, yet something is there. A person, or something on her turret.)

 

HMCS Hepatica (K159):

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Hepatica_(K159)

(I think I see a bull or Aries logo on the front gun.)

 

Looking at these Flower-Class corvettes is making me look at how the U-boats had these emblems, and how I was able to customize them in Silent Hunter 3. My favourite game :wub: . I'd be amused if you allowed us the option to add emblems to the Belles, yet that be tricky so I'm not expecting it. Just wanting to note. All I wanted to do was show what the RCN did while finding it neat with their turret emblems. Something I wish they carried over to their other destroyers. Maybe they have, and I'm just oblivious when failing to peak at the River-Class Destroyers.

 

But ya, do note the Canadian maple emblem. At least make note of that? If you do end up concepting more Belles, that is. That's something I need to actually put in the other thread hmm.

I think if they ever do something like Kancolle's Expedition mechanic, I think the corvettes could be ideal.

 

Say we could make it a convoy run, where the fleet assigned is tasked with escorting an inbound convoy to your base with much needed supplies and resources. It could be in two phases, first the outbound voyage to rendezvous with the convoy, then the voyage home with the convoy. Perhaps there would be the threat of Morgana commerce raiders and submarines. If say things go very well, the convoy might be carrying some very useful artifacts and equipment.

I do hope they do it in various ways, similar to KanColles & their own. That should be a must to raid the enemy's resource areas, as well as anything outside the map for any idling Belles. I'm sure we'll obtain idling Belles that it'll be most useful to sortie the likes of the 'Trio Navy', among others. Flower-Class would be a showy way to do this with their painted turrets (on some) to escort convoys outside of your submarine-filled territory & into your friend's areas, or your own elsewhere.

 

Also amused how my thought from before is brought up again [convoy rendezvous] that it should be considered highly to be used in this game. First in your own world, then gradually into other people's (friend) worlds. That, and having various fleets in different sections of the map.

I guess this is aimed at Mikelima, yet can't help but think of the 'Trio Prince Navy' also when doing this armed. Having the Trio escorts & Rawa in any convoy would bring such a big boost to your resources that it would be worthwhile having them Seeing as how massive both the 'Trio Prince Navy' are, as with Rawalpindi, that be a great big chunk of resources being transported. The goods being hauled would be a tasty treat for the Morgana's to attack your fleet. Their value & worth would sky-rocket that not even KanColle's quests or expeditions would compare in the expedition rewards you're given. That's a thing of its own now. If I had to compare to KanColle's expedition 16 (15 hrs), I'd expect them giving us 5,000 worth of fuel, ammo, steel, & bauxite per haul vs the 500 on each in KanColle. Not sure about scaling & how much 1 unit of anything is, just that they would be insanely great assets (The Canadian & your Brit) that it make convoying interesting on both gameplay & programming side of things, that even the armed merchant cruisers & such brings an interesting spin to this.

 

Don't underestimate your brave Rawa, nor my Trio Prince Navy :P

On another Note - HMCS Skeena:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMCS_Skeena_(D59)

 

I decided to refresh my memory by skimming through Canada's DD listing of WW2, seeing Saguenay as first & Skeena as second.

 

 

 

Having read through the wiki I recalled that I used her in my RPG Maker game by making her a ghost/phantom for being sent off into the ocean in a storm. Had her propeller shown in a mall I upped, as well as giving her a quest-line. Ah, the memories of KanCollefying her. That, and I had her medal set as a condition to have her unlocked fully after having her as an enemy to turn into a friend to be a memento of having sunk U-588. Not many RCN were rewarded, thus me trying to have her be gifted by some special memento, similar to seeing some KanColle ships having references on their person in various ways by putting them in her hair, or other spots.

 

Had to do something along the lines of gifting some sort of orb to then eventually work our way to gift the main medal on her actual unlock & recruit to your fleet. She would then pop in at her 'Iceland' home, or her 'Canadian' home. RPG maker was such a pain in the rear that it was so simple I had to set the quest to trigger via items, not in its own scripted quest manner. I wanted to get so detailed I had to go on my knees to get by. It ended up working, yet was a pain in the rear. I want to remake that game into a playable game, yet need some supporting RPG maker engine to tend to my complex desires for it. RCN, as small as you assume it is, can get fairly complex in a hurry.

 

 

Wanted to bring her [skeena] up (focus on her) because she's among the line-up of the first '39 (or so I'd assume) that it's about time to make note of her. That, and she's Saguenay's sister ship. Victory Belles wise I'd hope she won't have that 'fantasy' appearance to her because that just throws things off greatly. I guess I can't blame them for how they did Saguenay because she grows on you, and that doing my own search of 'Saguenay river' doesn't really give me much to work with on her design. I'll welcome her warmly into my fleet whenever given the chance.

 

Having searched through Skeena's background I found there's much more to work with that you can probably loosely concept HMCS Haida through HMCS Skeena. Whatever you learn through Skeena can then be much improved for HMCS Haida. There's these two tribe groups which I noted - [Tsimshian Tribe] & [Gitxsan]. There's also the Haida-styled clothing & art-style they would focus on. Seeing as how Skeena is a warrior at sea I'd treat her as a noble with the [Tsimshian clothing] at the top. The button-blanket thing I mentioned earlier for HMCS Haida in another thread. Some fancy mix of tribal & modern-British/Canadian wear with a uniform under & blanket on top. That, and the 'button blanket' that lady is wearing, & the shirt the kid is wearing in [this picture]. Having sunk U-588 I'd even expect her to have a fancy medal, or something referencing that in an alternate art, or similar. Skeena would be wearing a nice red & black mixture that she would out-shine HMCS Saguenay, at least on my end, as a 'Mental Model'. Seeing as how they enjoy sharing their culture, crafting, and etc I'd gift Skeena [this Tsim Dagger] to use, possibly with her ship badge carved onto the blade somewhere on the upper blade, or below on the hilt.

 

It bugs me how I can't find anything for HMCS Saguenay, yet Skeena is more diverse with her supporting two tribes; Multiple tribes, to pull reference from. That, and you can even add in the Canadian uniforms whenever in doubt. I'm just insanely picky that I have a love-hate interest with Saguenay's design. I'm simply too proud. In short: HMCS Skeena is among the first of the RCN, and a sister ship to HMCS Saguenay. Also, she sunk U-588, and was eventually lost in a storm in Iceland with her propeller placed in memory of her loss & service at a nearby transport hub.

 

[so many damn typos that I'm having to go back to weed them out.]

Hello and Greetings from North Eastern British Columbia!

 

Have to admit, I'm surprised there's so many fellow Canadian backers to this project but glad to see other captains also hailing from the Great White North!

I was surprised also that I saw them hiding mostly on Reddit. Wish they would pop out, yet I'm going to assume they're also waiting for more Canadians before they pop out further, maybe even insulted by my comments about Trudeau & such. I'm thirsting for a good battle as the Canadians versus the enemy in this and other game :)

 

I guess you would command your fleet from Vancouver seeing as how you're in British Colombia. I'd have to look over Halifax on my end from the 'Arrogant Ontario' :P. Feels awesome seeing and knowing there's more Canadians backing this project. Even makes me happy when my fellow Canadians mention Canadian ships which I haven't personally noted also.
