So far in every game I've played there have been at most 3 real players on each side. I have played in both afternoon and evening EST. Is this normal? Admittedly I am new and only up to my first tier 2 but common! Is it like this the rest of the way up the tiers? That does not bode well.

Tier 4 thru 6 are pretty populated. It goes back to mostly bots beyond that because people haven't made it up there in number...and those high tiers cost a fortune to both purchase and run...

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.

Most people are generally playing tiers 3-5 & the higher the tier you go the less humans there are in each game.

As for WoWP server stats, since update 2.0 they (WG) have been pulled from the public. Its hard to say with the NWO. As others have said it depends on what tier you are playing. In the past tier 2 use to be very popular to play.

Airborne Scout - Class of 1.0

Vae victis

Update 2.0 - It's not a bug, it's a feature

"Battle is the Great Redeemer. It is the fiery crucible in which true heroes are forged. The one place where all men truly share the same rank, regardless of what kind of parasitic scum they were going in."

I've had a few in the mid-tiers that were mostly human on both sides.  I'm not a fan of the bots, but the developers are using them to keep queue times low and to keep the tier spread of a match within 2 tiers, instead of the previous 3. 

 


 

My take on it is, if the population is that low that there's only 1 or 3 humans on each side, the game needs to default to a co-op mode.  There's just no way to engage in teamwork with the bots.  You can't even hold their hand, sometimes, because they split up and go do stupid things.


 

Recommend the game to people! The more playing, the less bots!

Pull server stats is definitely a bad sign. I think I'll with hold my money for a while and see.

I don't know. So far the game play is very one dimensional. Same thing again and again. Please don't tell me they do the same bit as in WOWS where once you hit tier 5 it is a 2 tier split with you on the bottom tier most of the time.

yep... the game is very repetitive but the forums are a blast... and with that avatar you'll likely have a lot of friends/stalkers so you'll really bring a new facet to:

World of WarPlanes Forum Edition™

2PointAdNauseam™

(aka WoWPFE™2PAN™)

it's the best game War Gaming has... oh yeah, I'm kind of a legend around here... :B   


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Just keep at it. They are actively working to make the game better. I've been playing for a couple of years now and the new graphics are outstanding. I sometimes just watch hanger scene (outside) and always see something new. As far as gameplay, I spend about $30 dollars a month for the premium and some gold. The rewards are just some much better. I play tier 1-9 every day just to get the x2 and x3 and sometimes x5 from the wins. Especially working not on just upgrading the plane but increasing the pilot's experience.

I am not sure if the same will be done with the other WG products too. I know it was a business decision to go this route by WG. Play or pay WoWP as you may feel fit. It does not matter to me. Don't depend on my opinion.

So far I have not seen a 2 tier split, I believe that got removed back in Beta in favor of one tier split battles. And even then, with the Bots around I have seen a few same-tier battles :great:

 

On the game being one-dimensional, I think that it's mostly due to the severe lack of cooperation among teammates (and the absence of it with bots), but there's quite a bit of strategy outside of combat if you want to dive into it. Maybe in a more competitive scene it'll come out into the light :sceptic:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:
