I think he's saying that a ship sitting in smoke should not be able to see outside of its smoke ring.

Here are two thing I want to say:

 

1 - The opinion of someone hiding his stats holds little value. You are most likely a potato who can't play the game.

 

2 - Ships using smoke have been nerfed time and time again. High tier, with the proliferation of radar, is an example. RN CLs have been slapped with the smoke detection nerf. There is no point in making smoke even more useless than it is now.

 

So let me sum it up, it's not the ship, it's you.

Might aswell be, that he wants, a ship that is spotted inside of a smokescreeen, shouldnt be visible in zoom, only in normal view? But my guess is at good as yours :Smile_coin:

 

Somehow I have the feeling, @GarrusBrutus did horrible things to him, thats why he came here to share his ... feelings? :Smile_veryhappy:

you know what, as nonsensical as this thread is (as usual for him), it got a chuckle out of me because it made me imagine ships raising a 50 meter periscope to be able to see out of their smokescreens... :cap_look:

Oh no you just gave WG the idea for the next nation-gimmick-consumable. Well, guess it will be the thing of the italian cruisers then. :Smile_bajan2:

I think smoke in game has infinite height so the periscope would need to be infinity +1 metres. :cap_look:

Whilst I have some sympathy for the premise that being able to see out of a smoke screen is silly, the reality is being able to shoot at things you shouldn't be able to see is crucial to this game.  Players behind islands shoot at targets they can't see, players in smoke screens shoot at ships they can't see.  I know there are some folks who think that because indirect fire is a thing, and they know third party targeting exists in the 21st century, that it should be possible for a ship to sit inside its own smoke and shoot out accurately.  It wasn't possible, but if we didn't have such things in WoW we wouldn't have a game; or at least we would have a very different one. Concealment and indirect fire is what makes small ships competitive with large ships. Without them, we haven't got a game.

...and would you really put that past WG? :Smile_trollface:

I was more thinking of the visuals though, the smokes aren't rendered with infinite height although they act like it :Smile_Default:

Technically the ships shooting on coordinates. But this wouldn't be fun in a game, so they tanslate it to a "shooter-like" gameplay. A ship inside a smoke can't "see", that's why they can't spot enemies.

True of course.  However even this would not work, because you also have to know your own position and orientation exactly, which you can't do because a ship in a smoke screen will be getting moved around by the sea.

I'm pretty sure that aiming doesn't work like that. Ships often could shoot over the horizon, so they don't even see the enemy ship. That means the communications works with spotter, who are telling where which ship is.

I think you're wrong there, I haven't tested it so I can't be certain but I heard that smoke is infinitely high and that it does block plane line of sight, since then I have seen planes at less than 8k range disappear in game with the most likely explanation being a nearby smoke.

 

How certain are you? Is your assertion based on a WG statement, your own testing or something else? Without a WG statement or thorough testing of your own in a sterile environment like the training room I'm reluctant to accept your information as fact due to my own experiences in which planes cannot look over smoke.

As long as I know in the rework planes can look over the smoke, but when they're diving, they might not look over it

Very certain.

When you move out of smoke and a plane is too close on the other side, you get spotted.

Your logic could be applied to multiple other instances of indirect vision in the game. You just have to live with explanation that these ships have very sophisticated radio signal share of informations.

Thanks, I'll keep a closer eye on it in future.
