"decreased the overall number of charges"

So they decreased it to 5...?

This is what the other nations get:

Class or Ship Tier Nation(s) Emission Time Duration Time Cooldown Charges Cooldown Charges
Cruiser X RN 7 seconds 113 seconds 240 seconds 2 160 seconds 3
Destroyer X USN 30 seconds 130 seconds 240 seconds 2 160 seconds 3
Destroyer X KM 20 seconds 77 seconds 240 seconds 2 160 seconds 3
Destroyer X  IJN, VMF 20 seconds 97 seconds 240 seconds 2 160 seconds 3

Very contradictory statements and poorly worded.

4/5 charges is more than normal

40s of deploying (set up?) plus 60s of active time is 100s - that's about the same smoke time as normal T6 smoke or T10 German DD smoke, then the cool down is only 90/60 instead of 240/160, with premium that means no gap between smoke screens...

With 5 of them that's 500s of continuous smoke if you like - 8 minutes.

This is supposed to a retreat option smoke? Well there are either some translation errors or people do math differently to I...

 

PA DD are mostly clones, yet they can't just balance and release them to clear space for something worthwhile. Sigh.

Decreasing it to 4/5 more than likely means they had more smoke than the other lines when they started to test them, and they’re just lowering the number of charges now to bring them down in line with the other DD lines.

Starting at 5/6 compared to 2/3 seems pretty insane to me. I wouldn't put it past them, but why roll out some smoke firing detection changes, complain of too much smoke, throw out radar on a DD line and then give that same line a huge number of smoke charges?

This is a complete joke line.

A copycat of an already existing line but with other consumables...

Sounds like WG is tired or they ran out of ideas.

 

Just look at that ammount of smoke...

wth!
