Anyone else noticed that the Belfast smoke seems to have shrunk, since last patch  I can not deploy smoke and stop inside it, even with Smoke Screen Expert on???

AFAIK that's always has been the case. Going full speed that is. A "weak" point is the ship decelerates slowly. I quickly learned to pre emptive brake before smoking.

 

Edit: typo

It still works for me, if I stop my engine right after starting to deploy smoke. Even with speedflag at 34.1 kn.

"We increased the active time of the smoke generator on British cruisers from 7 to 15 seconds."

IDK for sure. I do know I out ran my own smoke a couple of times so I made it a habit of start breaking first before popping it. Same with Kutuzov and Perth. Of course with smoke pewpew motive. Not for retreating purposes.

On Fiji, too. Brake BEFORE you smoke up, or else you'll run out of the smoke.

Leander was a bit better in the braking department.

No. She is an RN CL, and smoke is the RN CL thing. I wouldn't be desperately disappointed if the Radar was binned (which won't happen, as she's a premium) but she needs her smoke. Don't forget she and the rest of the smoke ships got a stealth nerf regarding firing visibility in smoke.

Oh, right. I forget. She would struggle...

Come on Pux, tell us where the nasty Belfast touched you :Smile_trollface:

 

As a smoke cruiser she's not OP. Kutuzov and Perth have HE too. With radar she's OP, I think we all agree. Take that away and she's just a paper-armoured, slow, large target that turns like a barge, which just happens to have HE shells.

 

There's a reason most of us RN CL guys consider Fiji straight up better than Belfast.

I'm still in the habit of slowing to about 16kts before setting off my smoke.
