How do I exchange my coal to steel?

  I like the new arsenal page.  That's pretty cool.  How ever there are a couple things I'm seeing.  I want to exchange my coal for steel.  How does one do that?  I am sitting on 28150 coal according to my arsenal.  I look in where it says more about resources.  It says basically you can exchange resources for ships signals and other items.  Coal you can get coal by completing challenges and combat missions or in daily containers, steel you can earn steel in ranked and clan battles.  If you don't have enough coal you will be able to use steel in place of the missing coal for the item.  So I was hoping to pick up flint because I wanted the Atlanta sister ships.  no where have I seen inside the game does it tell me how to exchange coal for steel.   Does anybody know how to do this?  I'm hoping we wont have to purchase doubloons.

You can't. 

The exchange is only steel to coal.

It was made quite clear by WG that the coal to steel conversion is NOT possible.

There is no reason to be nasty about it. I have made that mistake before where I have been excited about something and skimmed the directions and made a simple mistake.

Steel is forged from iron ore and coal heated to extremely high temperatures … once the carbon and impurities have been hammered out, you will have high quality steel suitable for varying purposes.

Now if we could only figure out how to hack into each others ship computers, we'd really be in business.

FYI, WG forgot to give us iron ore :(

Think of it this way:  

Coal = Credits

Steel = Doubloons.

You can convert doubloons to credits, but not credits to doubloons.  You can convert steel to coal, but not coal to steel.

For some reason, they don't want people to do this, which I think is a HUGE mistake, but it is how it is.  They don't seem to be even considering changing that idea either.

I've got all of this iron and steel in my port, just need to figure out where the furnace is, and persuade WG to let me cash in the ship's steel. :Smile_teethhappy:

Yeah, it really makes you realize how smart ancient cultures were to be able to make steel at all, let alone create something as technical as a sword +1

I am going full on nerd and paraphrasing from a movie. "For no one – no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts…
...(Points to the steel sword)...this you can trust"  Extra credit for anyone who knows what movie I am talking about.

They also forgot to give us ore boats to get the iron ore/taconite to the steel mills. :Smile_hiding:

That's IT! 

I'm putting a tariff on all of you for taking all the iron ore - Let' the warships trade wars begin - I'm cutting off your oil supply.

Now this is actually more to the point … I can't think of many one-way transactions that ever worked in my favor and WG seems to be getting carried away with it - I want FREE TRADE NOW!

I spent some of my coal completing the Dunkirk collection. I figure it'll mostly just sit there and accumulate like free XP until I find something to spend it on.

I'm sorry, but I can't feel any sympathy for someone too lazy to check out the main website before coming here to ask stupid questions.

EDIT:  I see that the lazy community has decided to hit me with their thumbs down.  I'm shocked … shocked, I tell you … that they have enough get up and go to even bother to hit the thumbs down button since they're too lazy to check out the main website for new content updates.

Meh, when something is new and I am excited about it, sometimes I will skim the patch notes and misread something.
