    A few things to consider in your hopeful request

    1. Kixeye is no longer a US based company, it is now based in Canada

    2. Tho it's Memorial Day in the US, up north, it Victoria Day in Canada, so the best you can hope for is a skin with th Queen face on it.

    3. Canada does not celebrate Memorial/Veteran/Remembrance Day the same way the US does, because the military is not as important in Canada, those day are not even official Holiday's in Canada.


    Hence i won't say it won't happen (cause you never know), but your chances of that being slim in the first place (being a privately owned company with aims to huge profits) are even slimmer being a Canadian studio owned by a Swedish group of venture capitalist.


    Happy Memorial (or Victoria Day in Canada or Patriots Day for me since i'm in Quebec)

    You are incorrect ... Remembrance Day is a legal holiday in "Canada".   Most of us are very proud of our Military and wear a symbolic poppy to celebrate our veterans during early November.  In fact by the end of WWII our navy had 95,000 men 434 commissioned vessels and was main reason the "Royal Navy" was the largest in the world the that time.   Not bad when you consider there were only 11 million people in Canada at the time.

    But off topic.. as the the 1000 coin offer suggested .. they should be given to new comers; they are the ones that could really use them.

    Each studio is independant in the management, but yes report to the group of investors in sweden. Hence the fact HQ are in Canada matters in terms of decision making.

    Yes, we do celebrate Remembrance day on November 11, but it is not an official Holiday in Canada. Yes, in some provinces or if your work for a Federal entity, you will have a day off, but it is not across Canada.

    Second, im not saying we are not proud of our Veteran, just that compare to the US, it is not as celebrated.

    Isn't it about now in the game cycle that the development team is swapped out? Like a government so many broken promises......hold that just had a brilliant idea....scrap the free coins and give us unlimited upgrade tokens.

    That the old ownership. New one hasn't done any major change since they took over.

    You really need to get your facts straight.  Armistice day is Canada's rememberance day to mark the armistice signed between the allies of WWI and Germany on Nov 11, 1918.  It is a legal holiday in Canada.  
    New Ship, figure out, refit, refit refit, refit...new turret, new base defense special / armor, new ship, figure out, refit, refit, refit.  REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT.  That's Kixeye in a nutshell.

    You are all over thinking this.
    Original post is not some sign of respect for fallen soldiers. It's simple begging for game gold and should not be thought of in the same sentence as Memorial Day and Veterans.

    Feel free to check it yourself, Remembrance Day is not observed (hence not an official Holiday) in 4 provinces including two of biggest ones (MB,QC,ON,NS). Basicly more then half the country in population.

    Official National Statutory holidays (7 of them are observe nationaly) in Canada are the following:

    • New Year - Wednesday, January 1, 2020
    • Good Friday - Friday, April 10, 2020
    • Victoria Day - Monday, May 18, 2020
    • Canada Day - Wednesday, July 1, 2020)
    • Labour Day - Monday, September 7, 2020
    • Thanksgiving Day - Monday, October 12, 2020
    • Christmas Day - Friday, December 25, 2020
    Rest are optional and observe  on a province by province option. Better go reread your constitution my friend.

    typical ignorant merican response to other countries.. WE Canadians respect our veterans better then the US does from what I have seen and remembrance day is in NOVEMBER and it is a stat holiday so your response is just plain ignorance...

    Actually he mentioned he lives in Quebec .. so I would assume he is not American.  

    He keeps insisting that we (Canadians) officially do not celebrate Remembrance day.   He should look at the Canadian Governments web site (https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/public-holidays.html) before making statements that aren't true.   The truth is Quebec doesn't celebrate Remembrance Day among a few other provinces.   As a Quebecer he is correct about his province. 

    Sorry to other's .. I keep derailing the free 1000 coin suggestion by the OP.    I still think as an idea Kix should consider giving every new player ( anyone with a base below 80 the coins :)

    Closing thread as this has gotten needlessly personal.

    1) We have offices around the globe, although our HQ is in Canada. And all of our offices have nothing but respect, admiration and appreciation for veterans and folks who serve. 

    2) Remembrance Day is a stat holiday in Canada except for Ontario, NS, Quebec and NWT. 

    3) No dice on the free coins, but thanks for asking ;) (Don't forget to log in and claim your free PvP goodies after the Update, though!)
