If you're going to hide under someone's skirt smoke, try not firing your guns, then you might not get spotted from inside of it.

From a brawling BB main..  I never had or liked your smoke anyway.  The times you did you blinded me.  Just spot that guy so I can kill him.  

BB main out.

To be fair, I heard many mutterings about "smoke changes" and didn't bother to research.  Only learned the details from the Sell you Belfast, Perth and Kutuzov! Zoup video.  I didn't even check the patch notes since they were titled "This is Halloween".  I'm kind of burned out on the game so I didn't feel like reading up on the Halloween scenario and did not realize the smoke details were buried on the page.

This might be an unintended buff for battleships with long range secondaries, i.e. German battleships, since I don't think secondary fire compromises stealth in smoke.

The new meta seems to be spot the enemy and smoke up, blinding your entire team, then fire blindly out of the smoke.

I don't get the buff...nothing about the 2ndaries in smoke has changed...German BBs 2ndaries have always been able to fire out of smoke at close enough spotted enemies...much to the woe of many of my DDs & even a few of my CA/CLs & BBs...that hasn't changed...just the fact that if they fire their main guns they may now be spotted...not at any range but definitely w/in the range of their 2ndaries.

I know it changed, I'm just not used to mentally thinking "alright, that smoke is safe, just don't fire" due to being used to the old system.

This battleship is trying to hide under her skirt but it's not working too well.

I think more folks read the patch notes than you think.  Some of these guys know what they are doing.  In my Belfast before I never had so many  BB's setting up shop RIGHT behind me.  I'm taking short rounds like a [edited] from these guys who are using their ships as targets to walk rounds into me.

I'm pretty sure the detection range goes up while firing secondaries, but what range, I'm not sure.
