Update 0.7.6 will introduce the Arsenal—a special place where you can exchange Coal and Steel for signals, camouflage, ships, containers, and special upgrades.
You can find the Arsenal in the upper left corner of the Port interface, above the list of available Combat Missions and Challenges. Coal and Steel are new in-game resources that you can earn by completing different Combat Missions, achieving high ranks, and getting good results in Clan Battles.
Coal can be earned through different Combat Missions and found in daily containers. Coal will drop from daily containers with a specific chance and will replace the contents of one of the three slots. Alternatively, it can drop from the Try Your Luck containers. The More Credits, More Signals and Camouflages, and More Consumables containers can bring you 400 Coal. The Try Your Luck container—900 Coal. Supercontainers can reward you with 15,000 Coal. Follow the news to learn how you can earn Coal in July.
At the moment, Steel will be given for completing Combat Missions in Clan Battles; in future, you'll be able to earn it in other battle types. In addition, 1,500 Steel can be obtained from Supercontainers.
You can exchange Steel for Coal at a rate of 1:10.
A reverse exchange—Coal for Steel—is impossible.
The Arsenal becomes available at Level 8 of the Service Record.
The Arsenal has several item categories:
Use the Coupon section to activate a discount for different items from the Arsenal! Each coupon can be applied to only one category and only one item from this category. Discounts don't stack: only one can be used at a time. Some coupons will have multiple uses—some time after the first use, the coupon will be restored and you will be able to redeem it again. Each coupon will have a timer on it informing you of the time when the next coupon is available. Apart from this, a special icon will appear on the Coupons tab to let you know about new coupons. The time until new coupons are available will be displayed only after you spend all the coupons in this category.
Players who earned certain merits in battle won't have to accumulate Steel and Coal from scratch, because we thought about some bonuses for them dedicated to the Arsenal's launch.
Firstly, when the Update with the Arsenal releases, players will receive a nice bonus for the Oil they have in stock—5 Coal for 1 Oil. After the release of Update 0.7.6, Oil is used only to build Naval Base objects and gain access to constructions.
Secondly, players will receive bonus Steel for a certain number of first ranks they have achieved:
Thus, players who achieved the first rank two or four times can exchange Steel for Flint or Black if they achieve the first rank in the next season.
Thirdly, with Update 0.7.6 all players will receive different coupons, including one providing a 25% discount in the Ships category.
If you participate in Clan Battles, you will receive 6,000 Steel for each of the two Stalingrad flags. The flags will be written off your account. For the third clan season, players who scored 30 victories in the Typhoon League will be able to receive 10,000 Steel, which allows them to accumulate the necessary amount of resources to get Tier X cruiser Stalingrad in Update 0.7.8. Thus, players who earn three Stalingrad flags will be able to exchange 21,000 Steel for Tier X cruiser Stalingrad. Two weeks after the release of Update 0.7.8, if you earned three Stalingrad flags and used your coupon to obtain cruiser Stalingrad, another coupon for a 25% discount in the Ships category will be credited to your account. Pay attention, if you fought in three Clan Battles seasons in order to earn Stalingrad, don't spend your coupon and Steel on other ships, otherwise you'll need to accumulate the necessary amount of Steel to purchase the cruiser without this discount.
We also want to reward our players who achieve the first rank and the Typhoon League on a regular basis. That's why you will get a special token for each first rank you have. Having gathered seven of these tokens, you will be able to exchange them for unique camouflages for
Please note that the tokens will not arrive until Update 0.7.8.
