Crap smoke mechanics?

Is this right, now sitting in a dd with 5.4 detection range, not firing a cruiser can detect me as he approaches from 5/6 km when before had to be a lot closer? 

 

If this is right, then smoke and dd play is broken, does not make any sense being able to see someone if enveloped in smoke from that range.  Crap

what tier? you still have both radar and hydro that can spot you just fine in a smokescreen.

(and going from what I see in randoms, most people don't know about radar, since they smoke up and slow down WHILE being radared by me quite often).

Without Hydro/Radar he can't.

If you don't fire, nothing changed.

If you fire, you'll bloom to something between two and three kilometres.

Someone clubed your fujin back?

That a player with so many battles makes such asinine questions...

Tier 5

So it's probably Fujin/Mine-/Kamikaze. Since you shoudn't shoot in those //edit: in that scenario, I'm talking about sitting in smoke with a cruiser nearby, as I said before, mechanic didn't change.

Where is it asinine, not firing, no detection mechanics like radar or sonar in battle, so does not make sense.

Considering theres a bunch of ships with sonar at that tier...

There is no way you can be detected in given scenario.

Given he does not really know the "scenario", because you cant really see out of smoke, why?

Cruisers at the tier have 4k sonar, I dont think the OP can judge the time-distance properly, he just got outclubed, deal with it.

We both mentioned hydro/radar. He said no. So, smoked up, no hydro/sonar, not firing. Detection >2 km not possible to me.

My point actually was that his scenario is wrong, cause not possible...

Where is the replay to back up his "no hydro" claim? I will rather go with my "OP lacks awareness and comes to complain to the forums".

Seems much more plausible than some masonic conspiracy to detect the sealclubing activities of the OP, right?

 

Edit to add: since Im a DD main myself, can tell you that nothing outside the announced changes has been felt by me, no special smoke detection fails.

Which DD has 5.4km detection when firing from smoke?

Maybe another destroyer was closer and spotted you for the cruiser? A replay would have been nice though, but I guess your dog ate the file? :Smile-_tongue:

If Praetorias cannot remember if he sits in a DD or CL then we have the problem right here,

+five tiers difference...

@Praetorias

But seriously, I think you screwed up here.

Then that DD should've been spotted, too. That would be another awareness issue.

The Neptunes 6.5 when firing from smoke is depressing. It makes a hard ship to play ultra hard.

I assumed that he fired his guns because if he wasn't spotted by hydro, there isn't much else that could have done it. One possibility is that the smoke puff he was hiding in disappeared at the moment the cruiser came close and that he didn't notice it because it wasn't the last puff (thus the timer was still counting down).

Why not?

 

Guns deal damage in a DD fight. They start fires on bigger ships...

 

Way too many times I see IJN DDs refusing to use their guns; losing a gunfight against another DD without shooting that DD once.

Even if you know you'll lose the gunfight, at least shoot the enemy to lower his health (which will help your allies).

 

 

You have guns, use them (wisely).

 

Any player saying IJN DDs shouldn't use their guns, I can't take seriously.

You're 100% right, I wasn't clear enough on this one, sorry. I didn't mean they shouldn't use them at all.

I'm glad every time an enemy IJN DD doesn't fire back at me in a gunfight. Especially those four backfiring Shimakaze guns are nasty when they are running for example.

5.4km? So one of the Minikazes. 5 / 6km? Only 3 ships can spot you from that distance at that tier - Atlanta, Belfast and Indianapolis - all 3 with their radar.

Hydro at this tier would be around 4....4,5km if I remember correctly, your firing from smoke should be about 2,6km, proximity detection is 2km and proximity with... vigilance?... is 3km.

 

For the "no radar / hydro" claim we obviously would need a replay...

Dude, this is just wrong. There are enough people unaware their DDs have guns, don't spread that idiotism to others

My excuses, I misread what you meant.

No problem, I wasn't clear enough. If something is misread, it's mostly the author's fault! ;)
