comment AC:R Multiplayer: how do some high level players re-use abilities so fast
I dug into the official strategy guide from Piggyback last night and checked over the multiplayer section. There's no mention of the Rapid Reload for the smoke bombs, so I was definitely getting my wires crossed with Brotherhood. As it stands, my answer above is the best info I can provide - at lvl 30 you can craft the cooldown on smoke bombs down to 45 seconds and when you hit lvl 40 you can add the Overall Cooldowns to your loadout to knock it down to 35. When you were playing was it blatantly obvious that the smoke bombs were less than 30 seconds apart?

ok - final edit to the answer until I can get home and check my strategy guide. I can't find anywhere that says that the Rapid Reload ablility is available in AC:R, so I'm removing that from the text. The minimum cooldown time for smoke bombs, after crafting and Overall Cooldowns should be 35 seconds.

I may be getting my games crossed - In AC:B you could complete the challenge "Cut Through The Fog" by using Smoke Bomb to block and stun pursuers. I'm digging around to make sure that Revelations has the same challenge. I have found a bit more info relating to the crafting in mp, though. By burning 80 Creds you can customize abilities. If you tweak Smoke Bomb's cooldown twice you can get the default to 45 seconds. Add that to the other two perks would get the cooldown to 25 seconds, so it's probably that you were popped by someone who has been spending time tweaking their loadout.

comment Does the iOS version have Survival mode?
I never said that you did say they'd add it in - I was just remarking that despite their history of adding in new features with updates I doubt that they'd add a mode that would basically be shooting their revenue stream in the foot. :) I personally have had good luck farming coins via the quick play version of 1-1. With a good setup you can rake in around 4500 a round. I'll have to give Last Stand a try once I get it unlocked.

comment Does the iOS version have Survival mode?
I'm somewhat dubious of them ever adding in Survival mode due to the nature of the iDevice game having the options to buy more coins and purchase ZG plants in the shop. Most people used the Survival mode for farming both plants and coins. Adding in a mode that takes away from their revenue stream runs counter to the business practices I've come to expect out of EA these days.
