Wargaming has confirmed the new Smoke Mechanism was undergoing tests on Supertest 0.6.9, but also has confirmed theses changes won’t come to the game.
After discussing and reviewing the Supertest participants’ feedback, we decided to continue the internal testing of the smoke visibility mechanics changes, which means the smoke visibility mechanics will remain the same in 0.6.9. Please note that we could be considering other options for this particular change. We know this affects one of the oldest in-game mechanics and we understand our players’ concerns. However, we would like to remind you guys that the purpose of Supertest is to identify the most controversial parts of the changes and to offer us a different perspective by allowing us to take a step back and observe how they interact within the game. Keep in mind that not all of the tested items/mechanics necessarily need reach the public test stage, they can be sent for revision or become completely revised.

This is good news, but at the same time a reminder that when something is on Supertest, it doesn’t necessarily means it’s going to come to the Live Server as it is, or at all.
