    Hello, captains. I have conjured a suggestion for the bay. Here is my explination for my idea- the Smoke Bomb.

    The Smoke Bomb is a yellow 1 cost utility item.

    It creates a half sphere of smoke in the water which lasts for x seconds.

    The smoke bomb creates smoke where both teams can not see through.

    The smoke bomb also hides player tags when ships are in the smoke or trying to look through the smoke and can not see player tags of enemy ships if no other ship on your team can see the enemy ship.

    The cooldown of the smoke bomb will be long at first to balance the fact it is a 1 cost item, but will decrease its cooldown with talents. Not by much, but noticable after many talents.

    Topics of Discussion:
    Should the friends (the team who shot the smoke bomb) be able to see through the smoke while in the smoke?

    How would this affect weapons like the mine or the repair box?

    Do you like this idea? (If you do, like it!)
    Give thoughts of anything else in the comments.

    What about a concussion bomb? It launches like a mortar and stuns unfriendly ships in a radius for 10 sec

    Nice idea!

    Maybe the Friends only see the tags through the smoke screen, but not the ships themselves, whereas the Unfriends don't see anything at all.

    An AoE 10 second stun would prove too lethal to the enemy team and the game itself, maybe make the duration of the effect vary depending on how close you are to the center, much like the frost launcher

    Hiding torpedo attacks through the smoke bomb would be a nice strategy.
