The smoke cloud from fireball staff animation makes it difficult for the entire team to see what is going on in the battlefield. This was a hot topic when it released, but it was never addressed by FS. People have stopped complaining about it largely because the staff has fallen out of favor. This is in no small part to how badly it obscures vision for the whole team. Please disable the black cloud effect. It actually impacts gameplay in a very negative way. If you look at pick rates before and after the animation change, I’m positive the data would back this claim based upon what I’ve seen in QP.
