What are you going to do with your coal and steel?

So steel dropped into our accounts today for ranked and cb rewards. I imagine our personal oil will be converted to coal fairly shortly. 

So they have roughly outlined what will be available and what the prices will be. 

https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/introducing-arsenal/

So what are planning to use your coal and steel for? 

I try to maintain a good supply of flags for ranked and clan battles and usually keep them all above 2-300 of each flag, so I can't see myself buying signals with it. 

Same with camouflage, I have roughly 2k premium camouflage and don't seem to run out. 

However, the special modules will be nice to be able to obtain. I think I'll have roughly 70k coal and can see purchasing a couple modules to fill in some holes on my ships so I don't have to keep using doubloons to demount them. 

The premium ships for coal I already have. But I am looking forward to having a use for all this personal oil we've been getting and having a guaranteed way to get modules. 

As far as steel goes, I have enough steel that I should be able to purchase a flint or black with the coupon. However I will likely hold off on that and see what the Stalingrad is like when it releases and decide whether I want to save my steel for it or not. 

What are you guys looking forward to in the arsenal?

Hoard it!  Run my fingers through it.  Then wash my hands.

Eventually, a Radar module.

And if they do pull flags from the Premium Shop...

I hope not, I'd rather use the coal for things that can't be obtained in the premium shop and I'm happy to purchase my papa papa flags.

I highly doubt I will get enough to do anything since I do do anything clannish or competitive.   I will, however, stew over the fact that they have steel converting to coal and not the other way around - that **** is backwards.

I shall use the coal to power the furnace and turn the steel into a hardened steel... and make ze German Krupp armor, lol.

Seriously though, since I don't do any of the competitive stuffs, no steel for me. As for coal... hoard for now? I got no plans, really. LEL.

I'll have little to no steel, and I am not interested in much you can buy with coal, so...no plans right now.

Smoke mod for Perth, I've gotten at least one of every other mod but that one.  And then read so many posts with "I got an SC and all I got was this damn smoke mod" /grrr. But, BUT, not until I get all the SCs from the Halsey campaign, because I know with my luck if I buy the smoke mod right away, that all but guarantees one of the Halsey SCs will also drop it.  RNG /spit

Yeah... was thinking that too, so even if an SC dropped it that would be ok, still going to wait though...  Unless there's a short term discount when Arsenal comes out, like they had a discount on creating clans for a week(?) after they were available.

Depends on whats in the shop. if there's anything good, I'll divert resources to that object. if not, I'll save up until something worth its weight in coal/steel shows up.:cap_look:

Going to use the coal to gift to the players that have been bad for Christmas, and use the steel to repair the damage they have caused... :Smile_teethhappy:

I might buy some crates to try to complete a collection or two. The perfectionist in me doesn't like unfinished collections.

I don't see myself getting much of the stuff. The only way I'd earn it would be through random combat missions, I don't play ranked that much and I don't play clan battles. I don't really play the game as regularly as most others and even when I do it's only about 3-5 battles at a time unless I win some premium time. 

I heard a rumor somewhere (don't take this as fact) that the Alaska might be making it's way into the game sometime in the future as a ship only able to be bought with coal or steel. If it is true, I'd be saving up for that just in case but most likely would wouldn't have anything near what is needed. I started saving up free xp for the Missouri the moment it arrived and didn't even get a third of the way there by the time they removed it.

Save it up and buy Hydro Mods and then maybe work towards the Aigle/other ships

Would have about 55k coal and the only ship that would be new for me would be the Salem. At current rates a Salem would take a few years to get. I wonder if we could trade free xp for coal. I think free xp ships might go the way of the dodo if the arsenal is a success.
