Does anyone know if its possible to trade Steel for coal?
I've got a lot of steal and absolutely no use use for it.
Since i'm a Cv's player the only thing that good are captains.
Would Wg make it possible for players to trade steel for doubloons on the open market if made available?

You can trade 1 steel for 10 coal, but only when you're trying to make a purchase, and don't have enough coal.

It can be done if you have enough steel and coal combined to make the purchase. I personally never do this though because steel is so much more work to get, and I can get coal just for playing everyday. I'd rather wait a little longer to accumulate coal than have to wait longer for a steel ship because I exchanged steel for coal. Same reason I always save my resource ship coupon for steel ships unless I know I wont have enough steel before that coupon expires.

This and it is generally not suggested but is fine if you only need a little coal or have very little steel.

Personally I'd never convert steel to coal but OP specifically stated he'd never use it due to CV only play.

God help us if WG ever released a CV for steel.

I would never convert Steel -> Coal.

Steel is much harder resource to accumulate, Coal is as common as dirt.

Aloha,

You can change Steel into Coal, but not the other way around.

That being said, HOLD ONTO AND HOARD YOUR STEEL.... Just sayin...  

At this time there are no plans to trade the "earnable" currencies to doubloons.

Mahalo,

Hold on to the steel.  Seriously.  You might be tempted to get the coal.  Don't do it...even if you never think you'll need the steel.  Because when the day comes when you find out steel is useful, you won't have any...or won't have enough.

Yes hoard that steel. If you somehow have so much that the dock might collapse, then send me some. I will trade you anything you like. Maybe WG would allow transfers of steel between players for say, ships, bucket of chicken, TP, snacks, coal, RB tokens, a fully spec'd out ishizuchi, etc.

That might have potential. LOL

Pretty much never convert steel to coal. The only exception would be if a ship was about to go away and you didnt have enough coal. Ratio as previously stated is 1 steel= 10 coal. For instance the smol is a ship people are going to supplement with steel to get before its gone for good.

never do that it is the absolute worst deal you could make.

supercontainers can drop steel and steel ships are usually op. coal is earned simply by playing every day and getting the max daily crates.
