im getting spotted when in smoke.

something must be wrong, as this is the only ship that does that. 

no ships near or planes.

anyone having the same problem?

There could be several reasons for that.

 

If you mean spotted in smoke when you are firing your guns ... keep an eye on the minimap. 

Your detection circle blooms to 8km when you fire in smoke, meaning any enemy ship within 8km will automatically spot you for 20 seconds from the time when you last fired your guns.

They changed the smoke recently so ships have a detected in smoke when firing range now.

For most destroyers its 2-3km but for the MK its 7.7km iirc

 

This means if at some point you're sat in smoke firing, a destroyer can come and get withing 7.7km of you and you'll become spotted

Thanks for the exact number (I cannot check atm).

 

Yes the OP came back after longer period and he missed the smoke mechanics change.

To put it short, any ship firing from smoke now has a detection range with 20 seconds spotting penalty (even if its not your own smoke).

The details are listed in the same place other detection numbers are shown (in port or when you ctrl-hoover over your ship HP icon in game).

 

Kutuzov received a bigger nerf in order to compensate its strength ... easiest way to remember its detection is to equal it with the torpedo range which is 8km (at least that works for me) :cap_viking:

The fire-duration-reduction on Cruisers (and DDs) is imho the bigger nerf ;-)

Except it's also a buff, as the Kutuzov herself also had her own fire duration reduced, lets not forget.

You are right, but it may be just me but my Kutu spread far more fires as she received - I guess it's factor 12 ;-)

Oh there's no denying it is a mixed blessing at best, but it was a point worth raising non the less.

Well, Kutuzov usually smoke at 15km and far the living dailight out of fleeing BBs. The smoe nerf was impactful but not that much.

In the first place no DD would want to get under 7.7km of a Kutuzov.
