Pour water on it, if it slaps you, it's human, if it explodes it's a bot.

Check the name.

If you see a name and the plane is of the same nationality as the name, it's a bot.
So Hans, flying a Fw-190 is a bot
Rupert in a Spitfire is a bot
Ivan in a LaGG is a bot
Yoshi in an A6M2 he's a bot

 

 

Very few players use a person's name.

We tend to use nicknames or callsigns

So if you see TeamTerrible or Pogo68 (Pogo is a half Orc from my D&D days) or MuddyWaters, those are going to be humans.

If the name has a clan tag, it's a human player.

There are exceptions like NolanCarter, watch out for him, he's a specialist, flying Ground Attack birds almost exclusively and he's one of a half dozen Ground Attack players I've run into that I'm hesitant to engage.

    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

If a name has underscroll, numbers, or in all lowercase, that's no doubt a player.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

​He's right. The Bots have the names of the nationality of the plane they are flying. Human players do not typically have real names. It does happen but not too often.

After I managed to figure it out, I saw a player named something like 'Charlie' respond to a question in chat and it kind of freaked me out. 

 

"OMG! They're learning." 

 

Skynet will be pleased.

As others have said:

 

The quick way is to look at names, any that start with a capital letter and appear to be a legit name related to the nationality of the plane are bots. If the name has a clan tag, more than just 1 capital letter, numbers or other odd characters, all lowercase letters, etc. then it's a human.


 

The 100% sure way to know is to right click all the player's names. If the little menu does not appear, then the player is a bot.


 

There are also mods that can identify bots.

Hryunomod places what I call a threat level number (0.0 - 6, with 6 being Abandon All Hope if your own ranking is 3 or lower) in front of the human player's name and a skill level (Novice,Vet and so on) in front of the Bot's Name.
