If you managed to harvest enough steel to grab an Arsenal ship during the steel drive, show them off.  Who managed to snag a Flint, Black, Stalingrad and Bourgone into their port? Show a pic if you please.

A lot of players may be waiting until the 24th when the Arsenal ship discount coupons reissue...

Have a Flint in port.....don't really feel like it's worth showing off that much.  Has more hype than it's actually worth.

Yep, that's what I'm doing. I'm waiting so I can get two at the same time. 

The wait is killing me :)

Yup. I should just have enough to snag a Black when that coupon drops.

Just remember that you can only have one coupon, so be sure to buy it before the rollover.

I'm consciously NOT waiting for the coupon to renew, despite being without a coupon (spent it on Musashi)

Going to get the Jean Bart (or maybe the Salem, but probably JB) at full list price, then Charleston.

"But Manny!" you might say, "you're blowing 57,000-60,000 worth of coal not waiting!"

Well, we've got hot and cold running coal right now, but steel is harder to come by...

...and 10,500 coal for Black is within reach during Ranked/Clan Battles, holiday steel, etc., but 14,000 is not. For me, anyway.

This. If you have one ship coupon already, use it in the next two days. The coupons renew, they don't accumulate.

I would have around 25k by the end of this steel harvest season. The current steel ships don't suit my play style (Stalin- Bad Moskva player and dont like camping, Not a BB player and don't want another port queen like the free exp and coal ships, would rather play my Belfast which I never do, would prefer a Kitakaze or Jutland instead of Black). I will save my steel for the Azuma as I liked its play style which suits mine. 

Flamu mentioned that Azuma was built to counter the Alaska and would WG would release it soon after Alaska release. Hope they would do it as I am expecting it to be a  steel ship :)

@Bill_Halsey


have enough steel for Stalin, waiting on the first tier X DD though. 

I bought Stalin because my clan asked me to. My only interest is in a T10 steel DD as well.

Ill still have plenty of steel waiting for it.

I plan on using the steel events to get up to 23k steel so I can be assured I'll have enough for the Azuma if it's a steel ship.

It's the Warcraft effect, the really good players got it early and the game progresses, eventually the scrubs get it with 10% of the original effort. While the good players have their sites on the new "must have ships". I for one fall into the scrub category and am anxious to get it and the Salem as I love US cruiser play.

Hope it isn't but I too would very much like to have this ship.

That's what's I going back and forth on: Stalingrad, Bourgone or Azuma? I'm 4k short for the Stalingrad at the moment and the rest of the steel flakes should get me 1.9k  and Nerves of Steel should get  over the top. that's not factoring in PEF or Steel monsters. I'm more of a Zao player style.

Stalingrad is competitive.

Stalingrad is competitive. 

You'd need a DD with:

1. Detection rating of a shimakaze

2. DPM of a haragumo

3. Maneuverability of a  Daring

4. Fletcher torps

5. Either radar or smoke slot like the Black/ Yue Yang

That would work for Ranked CW

I still remember those things when they went live.  I saw a 2 Black Division that was causing all kinds of problems.  They systematically worked together to slaughter our Destroyers.  Once our DDs were gone, it was over.

 

Those torps of theirs are slow a.f. but they have good detection and hit like trucks.  Not to mention they keep Smoke + Radar together, on top of High Tier USN DD stealth.  That's a powerful combination in my eyes.  PADDs with Radar have to give up their Smoke.
