I would like to request that we get salt as a currency for buying rare ships and upgrades. Salt would be earnable and generated every time you generate a negative report when you are in the top 3 finishers on the winning team.

You could also earn it by playing any of the banned ships, Belfast, Nikolai, gremy, kamikaze, kutuzov and Konig Albert. 

You would also earn it by participating in a triple man dive including a cv and 2 aa ships. 

Thoughts?

Sacrificial anode currency could be a counter to a salt based currency.

LOL Salt as a currency would be hilarious!

Of course it would make conversations on this forum very confusing since half the threads are about:

Salt
Saltiness
Being Salty
Salt Spreading
Salt Pouring
Salt Mining
Salt Farming

what about bacon as a currency.  you could buy more bacon with your bacon currency.  of course pork belly bacon currency would be way more valuable than back bacon bacon currency.  and of course pancetta bacon currency could only be used to buy Italian minesweepers.

Especially if it's a 7-8-8 division.

Good idea, OP, but getting a down vote after finishing in the top three of a winning team is way too easy.  All the decent players would corner the salt market.  

Edit:  So I get a down vote for this post.  I rest my case.

Hmm a triple man high-low fishing cv div deserves a special bonus dosage of salt.

While I realize that this thread is really meant to be humorous, I could sorta see salt as another currency.  The problem is that with 2 new currencies coming, how many things can one buy with these currencies?  Could salt be used to buy off/offset negative karma votes?  How would one even earn salt?  On the tears of your enemies?  10 salt for every ship sunk?  5 salt for every win in Random, Ranked, or Clan Battles, 3 salt for every win in Scenarios, 1 salt for every win in Coop?

Tears also need to be implemented as an alternative currency.

I use Tears in my ship boilers to turn to steam that gets used to drive the compound steam turbines, you get a bit more speed without the need for a Sierra Mike flag.

I burned his Lyon down in my Akizuki. I think he got a little extra triggered when the Yamamoto heal kicked in and the reload dropped to 1.8s. 

The Akizuki+Yamamoto combo is an excellent salt farming concoction.

What's the exchange rate of salt to smoked chili powder and garlic? I've collected plenty of salt, but I'm running very low on the others...

Normally people give me neg rep for killing them... Some times they do what they did to you.

Today I was surprised... They gave me a positive message.
