Well tier 9 ships are typically 750k free xp... unless you mean coal. Also I doubt they will be the same currency form.

 

I see Notser made a video on ships finalized in 7.10, and JB is the thumbnail. Maybe there's hope!

Notser confirmed that JB will be in the next patch. No word from WG on what the method of acquisition will be yet, though. Also included in the patch will Le Terrible. He was decidedly less enthused about her, though.

Notser confirmed that she was finalized, and extrapolated from that that she would be released next patch. Speculation from his part.

Well underway.  It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I have two ships (Jean Bart and Le Terrible) to work on.  So we'll see when I can get them done.

Le Terrible has been finalized too? Sweet. As of the last round of dev notes she was definitely looking pretty. Interested to hear your take on her. Admittedly I grabbed Aigle despite your Mehbote rating and have yet to regret it.

Number of 380mm shells Alsace can put downrange in 10 minutes:  ~268
Number of 380mm shells Jean Bart can put downrange in 10 minutes:  ~263

The difference being Jean Bart doesn't have to stop bow-tanking to fire that many shells.  She's also all but guaranteed to have her guns reloaded when an enemy pulls a stupid.  Do not underestimate her.  She was overpowered for most of her development cycle.  That Main Battery Reload Booster is insane.

380mm holds no special meaning to me as a threat in High Tier.   The 32mm armor means they melt to the shells of the tiers, and they won't have RN BB concealment to save them.

Thanks for taking it upon yourself to review all the ships. They're informative and usefull for trying to play well and they're always fun to read. I learn, I laugh, I love it.

They should.  While she may not be able to overmatch, she's still perfectly capable of blowing out citadels if she catches a sniff of someone's broadside.  What's more, her guns are uniquely capable of taxing Damage Control Parties with HE spam and fires.  It's enough to make a Royal Navy battleship envious.  When opportunities arise, Jean Bart can capitalize on them like no other battleship can.  Underestimate her at your peril.
