Smoke Barrage Dissipation

I think the smoke barrage dissipates too fast. While the area coverage is great it doesn't last long enough to be fully utilized.

I'm a big fan of smoke cover in this game and I think the barrage should last about a third longer than it does.

It has drastically changed my opinion of Hamada and Panzerstorm as an infantry and with a bit more tweaking could really put the intensity back into battlefield.

    I'm not going to lie, I don't really know how long it lasts - it seems people tend to skip out the smokes for the regular artillery, which create a very chaotic environment anyway, and do a pretty good job of obscuring enemy view anyway, plus there's the obvious bonus of getting damage and kills. But I guess make the smokes last longer - I haven't noticed them being obnoxiously long or anything so they can't last too long at the moment.

    @Bheid I thought the same thing the first time that we called in smoke. My medic smoke launcher creates a better smoke screen than the arty smoke.

    I think the medic smoke launcher should last a little longer or turn into a mild fog as well.

    For a barrage, I expected it to be more dense and persistent to be honest.

    I agree, a Medic with 3 smokes can do just as good a job which can make the smoke barrage somewhat redundant.
