 I have had the issue with the Giuseppe when I try to use the Exhaust Smoke Generator , I am not concealed. I thought maybe the first few times, the ship might have been on fire or something. But upon further testing, it never seems to conceal the ship. Even with me not firing main guns or burning or being radared or hydro'ed.  I even slowed down but,  it no longer conceals the ship. It used to work but not any longer.

That bloom lasts 20 seconds...

Other than potentially that we'd need a replay to tell what's up.

i had fired within the last 20 seconds. But, I have seen the other Italian BBs fire and then disappear behind smoke.  As for a replay, I will try to find one.  

 

Thank you

P.S.   Ok, I played it  another map and specifically tried the after 20 second bloom count and I was concealed.  I still feel like it concealed me before this last update , even after firing but , I will adjust to the reality of how it is now.    Thank you all for your help

How far away were you from them when they smoked up and disappeared?

Firing in smoke has a smoke firing penalty. Anyone within that range will spot you. Anyone outside will not.

Different ranges but ... I did not know that was how it worked.  Cool.  And it must have been the firing bloom count that was exposing me. I had tried to make sure I didn't fire when in the smoke , due to the 16.3k  range penalty  that it would expose me to. But, I didn't know the bloom timer worked against me on that too. I like that mechanism because it will keep the ship from being too OP.  

Thank you all for your help.

Yeah... exhaust smoke would have been so OP pre-smoke nerf. XD Used to work that there was no smoke bloom, only 2km assured spotting range or hydro/radar.

Never have any luck with the crawling smoke - always detected, so either I use it too close or whatever.  Rarely use it now - pretty useless for the way I play I guess....
