Why is SMOKE a NEON SIGN to blow me out of the water!?

Every time I use the Smoke to cover me it's like a Neon Sign and every enemy ship just pounds the hell out of me.  But whenever I lay smoke for my teammates it works great, so what am I doing wrong?

I have a Shimakaze and a Yueyang.

From the perspective of a CV player, when I see smoke I see a destroyer that is in a bad position and probably not moving... It's basically a big neon sign saying please torpedo and rocket bomb me

Don't even need CVs. Smoke has been torpedo bait since the beginning of time.

And people are already good at blind firing into smoke with spotter plane.

When I play DDs I will often put smoke near the cap without using it just to make the enemies waste their torpedoes lol

Right on!   Accept I'm moving around not sitting still and it seems like the smoke isn't doing one bit of good!

Thanks for the reply"s, it's appreciated, thought that I was going crazy.

RPF show different location than the smoke, press W to doubt. I always fire torpedoes at where RPF moving, granted some blind hits

Smoke is great for breaking contact. Then use it as a diversion to slip away
