I hate playing against high prestiged players.

Not all of them. Just most.

It seems like they, more than any other players, abuse offensive smoke bombing. They don't even try to be stealthy or anything. They walk around, as obvious as the sun, relying on their smoke bombs to do all the work for them. The matches just become about who has the quickest smoke trigger, nothing else.

I made this exact connection months ago. I'm glad other people share my dislike of prestige players relying on crutches. Of course, I have a 3 star, but I'm one of those rare exceptions.

We're not all like that. Most high prestige players do that, but not all of us. I'm not going to say I don't OSB, but I don't do it as much as most other high prestige players. My smoke is primarily for defense. OSB may suck at times, but its a part of the game. So its something everybody has to deal with.

I gather not everyone's like that, I've played against some excellent players. And yeah I do OSB at times (to get focus/poison for variety) but never at the rate I've seen some players use it. Like they don't think of any other tactic:

- run up wall to avoid being smoked
- decoy / disguise to confuse
- last second sprint to catch them off guard
- firecrackers / throwing knife to lure them into wasting their defensive ability

None of that, just smoke smoke smoke. I guess one benefit would be that if I get OSBed then I know that for a period of time they're down one defensive ability.

But yeah, being in a match with about 6 other people using this tactic is just horrendous >_<

Ah yes, offensive smoke bombing. The perfect way way a pursuer to abuse the smoke bomb duration >_>

Seriously, I don't mind if people OSB but its so annoying to have someone abuse the smoke bomb almost every match, and its mainly the poison users.

Whenever I encounter poison users, its an instant morph or hanging on a lift top :3

The problem is that since the patch u can't run up a wall to avoid it anymore. Decoy doesn't work against good players. I can't remember the last time I killed a decoy. With the new insta-smoke, u can't even sprint at them anymore. People can now drop smoke at the last possible second and still get away with it. Knives I agree with, tho. I've never tried using firecrackers. I'm not defending or condemning OSB, I'm just saying that some things wont work. As I said, I'm guilty of using it as well.

I only do it to get into the lead, once I'm in the lead I go defense.
Though unlike most oSB I am stealthy. And will wait for incognito and try to tag you from a hiding spot.
Once I am in the lead I prioritize defense. Because with 3 pursues, most likely the three behind me on the score board, of they can't kill me I maintain my lead while building up points. I usually blend in a crowd at an edge of the map so I can see all approaches. Then I charge or smoke bomb for a stun.

One poster said he'll morph and hang off an edge when he encounters osb, sadly for you that means i switch to my "panzy control" ability set of firecrackers and gun lol. But then he changes strategy and we're back on even ground.

I never just stick with one set for a match I almost always cycle through 3 strategies and sets.
