Hi everyone, I`m confused here, I have 1300 steel, but when I go to buy the USS Black or Flint for steel in the arsenal it say I don`t have enough/ tells me that I need more. So no doubt I`m missing something here. 

Thanks for any help, Vector_95

You need at least 8,782 steel for the Flint (using the coupon).
There is no conversion options, steel converts to coal, but coal cannot convert to steel.

You can earn steel in Clan/Ranked battles.
Or whenever WG decides to give away more steel.

Indeed.

Judging by the reading comprehension and math skills, I am not very looking forward to this.

Consider though that once and for all we will know whether these ships are truly overpowered if average players can carry in them.

1300 steel isn't going to buy squat. You need way more. The prices are listed in the arsenal.

Well, that is the point though..these players see the stats and think it will be an "I Win" button, when it really isn't. :Smile_popcorn:

Step 1: Have sufficient currency

That's not related to just this thread, but how to get ahead in life in general.

They think it's noob proof.  The quote by Douglass Adams applies: just replace fool with noob.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

Money does not solve everything...but many things?....that is doable.

than you for responses, one of them reported

I mean... you did say you have 1,300 steel and ask why you couldn’t buy something that costs 11,000 steel.  Right?

One of the things taught in US schooling is apparently that steel was invented around the start of industrial revolution, instead of the early parts of the iron age.

Not true.

We all learned about the mystery of steel from Conan.

And that was a long time ago.

Hello everyone...I have $1500 but I want a Porsche 911 Turbo S. The dealer won't let me. I'm sorry how it sounds, but it made me laugh.

Hi everyone. I went to Wal-Mart and put a $1000 TV in my shopping cart. The only money I had on me was $50 in cash and I have $23 in the bank. The store isn't letting me buy the TV.

 

Help would be appreciated.

How fast can you push that cart?

It's obvious that some people post ridiculous questions/statements just to solicit a response that they can report. :Smile_glasses:
