what a load of crap, can only get steel from ranked battles, clan battles and supercontainers,  gj wargamming you just alienated the rest of the community that just play random battles,  which means almost 50% of the arsenal is of no use to me and the people like me, alienating people is a good way to lose players , this just shows the lack of respect for the player base of this game as usual, did you not think at all there are people that just play random battles, why is that option still here to choose then, it serves no purpose with this resource system you just implemented in this most recent patch today july 25, 2018, whoppee i get coal , take a look in the arsenal, that means being a random player all those ships that need steel i will not get never mind ever get, and any other item that needs  steel i will not get or ever be able to get , so why should i now consider using any real life coin to purchase anything for this game,  just another reason to play something else , i have a clan just for the purpose of having one , its not active and dont want  it to be , so thank you for bringing in this system that alienates people and like i said just shows me that this company wargamming just doesnt give a crap.

Considering that you used to have to get to Rank 1 or to the Typhoon league in Clan Battles, this is better in that you don't have to get all the way to the top now.

The only way to get flint, black and Stalingrad was to play ranked or clan battles anyways, nothing has changed. Wargaming wants to implement rewards for playing game modes that people that they wanna sell, what a surprise. Either you just suck it up and join the walls of average players and clans playing competitive matches, or you’re not really the audience wargaming is attempting to reward

So there should be no incentive for performing well, either individually or as a group? :cap_hmm:

Flint and Black were never available outside of getting ranked one several times in randoms, so it makes sense that they would require a resource pretty much only available by playing ranked or clan battles. At least now you don't have to get rank one to make any progress at all.

In addition, those two ships are the only things in the arsenal right now that require steel. NOTHING ELSE DOES. If that sounds like almost 50% of the arsenal to you, you may need more math lessons, or at least to dial back on the hysterics.

Besides, most games do lock some rewards behind higher difficulty levels. All the ones I can think of are aimed for more casual players. I don't have a problem with that, but in a game like this that rewards skill and system knowledge above most other things that would be super out of place.

You want the high level rewards, you better put in the effort. Why should Wargaming listen to ranting, tantrum-throwing ingrates who wave around the amount of money they've spent as if it gives them special access or privilege?

Of course your never getting a Flint or Black they were almost impossible to get anyway . Please alienating the community I don't think so most of us will take the free stuff and be happy . Thanks wargaming I like it .

Nothing changed, except, if you work at it, you can earn certain things faster now than one could before. You could only earn those ships and things through Ranked and CB's, anyway. Now, if one gets really lucky, one could get that steel from SC's, and never have to do anything that smacks of being difficult. Know what you're talking about before you go off on something.

 

Next, raging will avail you exactly nothing, and rightfully so. People who are self entitled, whine, and throw tantrums, especially in public deserve exactly what they get for that behavior.

 

Last, dear god, man, use a freaking period at some point before the very end of a massive text wall.

It still takes quite a bit of participation. And the bonus camos are only available to those who ranked out. But yes, the OP is being a bit precious. I hardly consider myself "select few", and yet I managed to get to Rank 14 last season. I would have got steel for that under new rules. Not much, true, but I could save up here and there and eventually get a steel ship.

I mean, you were never going to get the Black, Flint, or Stalingrad before by playing only randoms so this doesn't change anything.

Per the picture on WIP ranked that I posted above, you would have received 1,600  650 steel for Rank 14.

Edit: @Ensign_Cthulhu pointed out my original error.

Please. Are you trying to tell us that the new steel and the ability to get it WITHOUT having to get to the TOP of Clan Battles and Ranked is the same as it was in the past? Really? It has become more fair. Not everything is handed out willy nilly. You still have to grind for tech tree ships, so why should steel ships be any different?

Here -- you forgot these. Use as needed. 

...................

Anyhoo, I might not be good at maths, but three boats does not equal 50% of the Arsenal. They at least can be obtained without needing to rank out a bunch of times, so it's actually an improvement. :Smile_teethhappy:

Dear Op:

                I understand your frustration but, at least, steel can be earned through containers and ranked, in small quantities but at least you can earn something, its not difficult and not reserved for a select few. No, what is going to be unfair is the other new currencies, the one you earned by achieving the higher leagues in CW, Now that's kinda (yeah i said kinda) elitist, because the requirements are too high

This is like getting a 10% off coupon for buying a building.  You couldn’t afford it before and you can’t now... so, you’re pissed because you still can’t buy the building...

I don’t get it.

The satisfaction of being good at competitive modes? You know, like what they got out of the community organized tournaments in the past? But that's not what it's about. The OP is right. It's about elitism.

The Rewards you can use steel on where only from Ranked anyway so.....This has not changed anything. If anything it has made getting these ship easier. You no longer have to Rank out multiple seasons to get them. 

WG has made this more accessible to the average player not less.

Cheers
