Yes, it's become my most played and best average damage dealer on my EU account.
Tonight's game.

The reload booster is currently bugged and sometimes doesn't work but it's a bug being fixed in the PTS.

While the JBB is a good/great ship, if you want credits I recommend getting a premium account. 

I would also recommend waiting till Christmas since they tend to do a 50% reduction for one year’s premium. Think it runs around $45 -$50. 

If you enjoy the game, premium is the way to go. Your credit issues won’t be a problem.

I do not regret for one moment welcoming Jean Bart, Tirpitz, Odin, Kii, Massachusetts, Scharnhorst-B (got it in a crate) and several other premiums to my port.

So, if you're tempted and have the spare doubloons, I encourage you to get the only available version of Jean Bart that one can get right now.  :-)

I set mine up for brawling and dynamic maneuver game-play.  

My Tirpitz self-identifies as a "plus sized DD".

Good luck and have fun @CrypticTaco.  :-)

Yep.  It's true that premium account status does help with the "grind" and helps ships earn more per battle.
So, yeah, getting premium time when it is on sale around Christmas is a smart buy.

agreed christmas time is great for prem time normally.... but feel jean b can be a safe bet as ur always gonna be printing creds as oppose to prem time which helps the ship grind but not the cred issues im currently facing as i have tons of exp flags but no creds to buy not to mention i also feel atleast with jean b i can play at my lesiure as a oppose to getting prem time and feeling i have to play for that month

I bought mine using a 15% off coupon from Verizon (if you happen to be a customer). Im Very happy with it and don’t feel I’ll have any buyers remorse from it. For some perspective, my favorite premiums or Mass, Mainz, Ak and Ga.

I'm trying to decide between the Jean Bart B, Georgia, and Alaska B. More or less leaning towards Jean Bart B since I am grinding the French BB line at the moment, although I hear the Alaska is worth the money too but I don't have much experience with the US CA line. I guess the Jean Bart B is the smart choice here?

I couldn't get the coal before she was removed, so spending some money was well worth it for me. 

I'm trying to decide if I want to go secondary build or standard BB build. I have 2 19P French CPT, one secondary build I have in the Alsace, and one standard BB for the Republique.

With ammo reload booster, Jean Bart has pretty decent DD hunting capabilities, secondaries further augment your deadliness against DDs.  If you want to hang back and just shipe, then obviously use the standard build.

Just know that if you BUY the Jean Bart B and do not own the Jean Bart, you can NOT complete the mission, that comes with the Jean Bart B.

Kii with the Kobayashi camo is considered one of the best "credit printers" in the game, along with the now unavailable Missouri and perhaps a few other contenders.

Everyone has their criteria and their budget, and I respect that.

Jean Bart is no slouch in the credit earning department, in my opinion.

What also helps, in addition to premium time, is membership in a clan that has base facilities which reduce service costs and improve FXP and other battle earnings. 
(Something I learned in recent months, after starting my own clan.)

I recently got the Saipan with the same coupon (which arrived yesterday).

Not sure that Jean Bart B is available with that coupon, though.  It, (along with all the other Black Ships), wasn't listed among the ships that are compatible with that coupon when I was shopping (last night).
Possibly because the Black Ships are part of a different/separate marketing or pricing structure?
