A smoke gank is using a smoke of deceit to turn your team invisible and sneak up on someone from the other team. You use it when you need to get ganks on someone and the enemy team has enough detection to make that impossible or at least very difficult without a little extra preparation. Like if they have the map warded up, you use a smoke to sneak by without being seen and destroy their carry.

A smoke gank is a gank with normally 3-5 of the team members using smoke of deceit which makes you invisible and run slightly faster, it is used when you feel th enemy has wards up to stop ganks as being invisible you will likely pass these normal wards undetected. If done properly it just highly increases yoru chances of being successful with the gank attempts.

A smoke gank is where you purchase a smoke of deciet and use it to gank, this is normaly done with the majority of your team.

You should primarily do this when you have vision of you enemy or know where they are and need to win a teamfight. Such as if you know the enemy is doing rosh you can use smoke to get off a good initiation.

The reason to smoke gank is to get in close to the enemy without them having vision of you, this can make it alot easier to land a good initation on the enemy and can normaly tip a teamfight or even the whole game in your favour.

Even though I did not need a definition, this is a fine example of good replies that you usually would not get on a Moba forum. Thank you!

also i am using smoke on ursa when im doing roshan (early) or with meepo solo vs rosh.

We mostly smoke in early game, but only when the laning allows it.
Or in lategame to get some important pick-ups that make our teamfights easier.
Or to get into rosh-pit :D

But you must be carefull.
Vision is very important when ganking, because the enemy will detect you if you come too close. Prefereably you know all positions of the enemy.
