At this moment i am gathering resources to unlock the salem. However in the armory, when i look at the remaining coal for the salem, the steel I have isn't deducted from the price at the current rate of 1:10.

 

Is there a possibility to add the steel to this value?

When you want to buy the Salem, the game will use steel if you have not enough Coal. Also conversion rate of 1:10 shouldnt be that hard to add together :cap_hmm:

 

Just to make sure tho: I advice NOT to change steel for coal!

It would be done automatically if your steel AND your coal would be enough. But I suggest like the rest not to convert steel as it's harder to obtain.

Thank you for all the replies.

 

However for me for the same value. Coal is harder to get, with the ranked and clan battles

Steel ships are better than the ones you get for coal. Burning up steel is a very short term measure which you may regret later. But it is your resource so therefore yours to do with as you wish.

If you can get all 3 containers a day you can get a guaranteed 1200 coal if you choose the ‘more resources’ crates.  You’ll more than likely get more than 1200 though, I’ve gotten quite a few crates with only coal in so 1200 from just one crate.

Getting a large amount of steel is much much harder than getting coal. Getting steel now might seem easy since we just had clan battles and now ranked started again, but after that there will be a long drought before steel becomes avaliable again.

 

Daily mission chains, containers and those victory containers throw coal at you while the steel you get from ranked is finite at best.

This is how it looked for me. My opinion is subjective and can't be wrong or right.

Steel is harder to get, as you get that one for Ranked and CW. 

 

Not coal. Coal you can get ever day from daily containers etc. 

 

Btw that was a fact, not an opinion and that fact was objectively wrong.

You can earn at least 1600 per day while doing missions and getting containers with resources. And it's even possible to get 3x1200 (containers) plus the 2x200 (missions).

Thank you all for the replies. I am still a few thousand coal away from the salem, so i have plenty of time to think about it.

You can actually do that?

 

 

So how do you actually do it,just been in game now and whilst it tell me  1 steel = 10 coal, gives no indication of how to do the conversion.

It's automatic, when you buy something you don't have enough coal for.

Unless I'm mistaken, does the game not automatically offer to convert steel into coal for you if you try to buy something when you dont have enough coal but you do have enough coal+steel?

 

Either way, do not convert the steel into coal. I own everything that can be bought with coal and am sitting on a further 500k of it, yet I am still 60k+ steel short of buying everything of that and even for this entire ranked season I can only earn 5.5k. You may quite likely find yourself in the same situation one day.

Yes, but it doesn't tell how much more coal you need in case you're ready to spend all your steel as well. It's somewhat confusing.

 

I just realized that by using all my coal, all my steel and the coupon, I can buy Salem in just a couple of days. I don't really play enough ranked to get any significant amounts of steel anytime soon, life's too short, YOLO, etc... Salem here I come! :Smile_bajan2:
