Is smoke screen less effective since the patch?

As the title states, I'm just wondering if anyone else is finding it less effective?

I seem to be continually spotted even though in the middle of a smoke screen playing tier 4/5 DD's.

Actually I did notice that an enemy Clemson that was sailing towards me wasn't vanishing and appearing like normal when he popped his smoke, thought it was weird. Maybe there is a delay on the smoked area populating on the map, thus allowing you to sail out of the area of your smoke before it appears... maybe.

Yes, a delay does seem a more apt description.

nope, i played lots of dd match today and smoke works well. you can only spot the dd because he is moving too fast to be covered again by smoke generator. to use smoke more effectively, you need to slowdown your engine.

I've seemed to notice the opposite, DDs disappearing when normally they don't. I'd have them in my sights and about to commence firing~ when poof , they're gone.

Seems normal to me, played quite a few kamikaze matches and I haven't noticed anything different about my smoke.

sure you didn't just send em to the bottom?

 

Only change I have noticed is the screen when you are in smoke, you now have a haze when you are in smoke.

Is that what that is? I thought it was glaucoma developing.

This version 05.5 has got to be the best one yet.
