Me imagining how many people would fk up their Pizza BB play because of this

Unless those floating Pizza have special aka small smoke firing concealment penalty, I don't really see why people would smoke up and push while playing a Pizza BB.

Confirmation needed.

Very good point. I did wonder what the smoke firing penalty of the Pizza BBs are, as SFP of BBs is typically... big (I haven’t memorised any of them, because smoke firing in a BB is something I don’t really do).

Depending on how long the smoke lasts, I suppose you could wait 20 seconds for concealment to drop, drop smoke then turn around and run away while not firing, but not firing in order to stealth up is a pretty high level skill to start with.

Yeah, you could do rushes with it, but that depends on the speed. I suppose it won’t matter much if you stay near the back like a lot of BBs do, then it’s just a quick way to go undetected.

Just have to wait and see, but I too expect a lot of people to get caught out.

I can actually smoke and shoot in the CAs - provided that I have vision, because they don't have very big smoke firing concealment penalty (like <10 km for Brindisi), but players should only use that Smoke as a disengaging/escape mechanic, not an offensive one. Even more so for the BBs.

You can use the Smoke to avoid being shot at while rushing in somewhere, but I really wouldn't count on it.
