How are people finding the new smoke ability on the kitakami?  Does the turrible turning circle make smoke more a barrier between covers or a turn and run from bad things?

Oh and does the captains skill for smoke give the kitakami the extra goodness or is that still destroyers only?


 

I find the biggest issue not the enemy doing something silly and giving the Kit targets, but friendlies running in front and blocking your firing arc ... add the griefers who will deliberately turn in front now the team damage is added, how will the torpedis spammer fare?  thoughts?

Both Kitakami and Iwaki have inferior smokescreens compared to DDs. Only 15 sec of smoke generation and they don't stay on the map as long as DD smokescreen (only stays for roughly 1 minute). So their screens will offer less coverage and is not suited for preparatory application.

 

The smoke skill applies for both Kitakami and Iwaki.

 

As for team damage, during testing we found out that it apparently can discriminate between deliberate and accidental team damage. Still, YMMV.

Kitakami and Iwaki Alpha currently the only cruiser that can use Smoke screen and probably Smoke Screen Skill too (need confirmation)
