I don't know if anyone has tried this but I turned all my effects settings to low and now I see no smoke bombs from either my team or the enemy team. It appears smoke bombs are completely ineffective to me now.

They still do what they are supposed to but you just can't see the smoke. A badge does pop telling you are in smoke. Pay attention.

Smoke screen makes it harder to spot tanks but once they've been spotted all it does is obscure your view, they can still be highlighted and targeted regardless.

It only shows if the enemy deploys a smokescreen in my experience.  If you or an ally does you only get the icon with the timer per Sporkboy.   The enemy smoke has no timer of course.


And when the enemy is in smoke what the dude says as well.

 

Also OP you may visually see them better, but that still doesn't negate the bonus/penalty they give in game since that's applied server side.

 

Personally I'd rather see it so I know that someone deployed it and where tbh.
