Small question about Arsenal roster

I know we will be able to buy ships with coal ( Musashi, Okt Rev etc.) and with steel ( flint, black etc). The question is:

Will these purchases be available PERMANENTLY (aka the roster wont change and new ships will be added later on) or will they change ones in a while like in the premium shop?

The way the "ship" section is worded doesn't leave any ambiguous meaning. That said, I believe we will have a ship rotation depending on the premium ship sales WG wants to make via coal. I don't think the steel ships will be rotated however, especially if you take into account the difficulty of earning steel.

The roster will be changeable. There would be an article with details on the Portal later.

Once this system's implemented you'll be able to grind for the Tier 10 Spanish heavy cruiser Nacho Monreal, hull number 18.

 

I find WG's implementation of such a system to be interesting. The first thing it reminds me of is Kancolle. However, it would be good for WG to consider the repercussions of such a system if good ships like Flint and etc. are made more readily accessible. Because we all know that there are many who fail their way long enough and eventually they'll get their hands on these ships.

Changeable, probably why they have reduced the doubloon available ships, so they have enough for both.

Ok. That clarifies it. Thank you for your response. SO I will be in a tight time window to get enough coal for Musashi.

This is almost certainly why they pulled the Yubari from the in-game tech doubloon tree, given that she's now becoming a coal ship.

I almost bought the Campbeltown last week; I'm now glad I didn't. That being said, if you got one bag of coal a day in containers it would take 65 days to earn her, the Aigle would take 165 days and the Musashi would take a little under two years. So either the rotation rate is going to be pretty low (or easily earnable ships will be rotated out once people have had a fair chance to get them), or other methods of accumulating coal will allow much faster acquisition and purchase.

I currently have 2380 oil earned, which will translate to 11,900 coal when it's converted. That's a huge chunk out of the Campbeltown and nearly 1/4 of the way to an Aigle. I am very interested to see exactly how this is going to work. Full details are awaited with interest.

I'd wager for coal rewarded from event missions, ranked levels, campaigns etc. I doubt it will be forever limited to containers.

I got 7870 oil so it will be 39,350 coal for me... And since Musashi is 176k coal it will be a long grind.... Unless if WG decided to change the oil conversion form 1 oil - 5 coal to 1 oil - 10 coal. It will give enough time for people to purchase the ships they want before the roster gets refreshed.

So do I, but I'm working from what we know and hoping for more details to be available soon. Right now we have people flipping their gourd because they're making judgements on the basis of the absence of information.

True to this. Regular container will give 300 coal and super containers will give 15k coal if you get lucky. Also try your luck containers will give you 700 coal. + there will be mission rewards 2.

And since we got Halsy campaign SCs we can get at max of 120k ( 15k X 8 )coal if you get lucky with all 8 SCs that you get rewared

Here is what was in the news article.

At the moment, Steel will be given for completing Combat Missions in Clan Battles; in future, you'll be able to earn it in other battle types. In addition, 1,500 Steel can be obtained from Supercontainers.
