What is it with all the bots? Have played several games with 10 "players" but only 2 human players

Bots were introduce by WG to offset the low population problem.

The population is so low that the matches would drop into 1 v1 or even 3 vs 3.

In order to get full matches the MM would wait for 30 minutes sometimes.

People did not like the 3 vs 3 matches nor waiting in queue for 30+ minutes.

Adding bots were the only alternative.

 

Things have changed quit a bit since the last time you played.

Including the deletion of 3 man flights.

Because a bunch of people stopped playing. The population got low and had to suppliment with bots.

Just before bots hit, last year in Oct I think, the peak pop was below 450...there might have been a sub-400 day or two in there. Things were grim.

I think the worst part was 1.6 and 1.7 when you would wait 20 minutes for a 1v1 even when there were 20 people in the same tier waiting in queue. That doesn't include the 20 in the tier below and above.

I didn't play for a few months during that time. Awful, waiting 20 min for a 3x3.

What else is new? People have been saying the game is dead for years.

Yeah but have no fear we have a lot of patch version 1.9's to go as it appears someone is stalling for 2.0's release

 

Personally i'm hoping they roll back after version 1.9.9.9 to like 1.4 as that would be an appreciated delay attempt

60-70% of the planes in battles are bots. Its not 100% dead, but the life support is definitely on full tilt.
