All you have to do is push the TAB key and you can see the human players by way of their player names -- pretty simple I think.

Since it is not a feature that is directly pulled every time it is synced with the game, we would need to pull data for this any time we need to check.

 

As the Developers would need to pause any task they are doing in order to handle this data pull, it is still a lower priority sadly.

 

 

    Then what is the higher priority then? Ever since I have been here this game has been "repackaged Spam", and the events have been jury rigged carnival games with cheap prizes. When you add up humans versus bots in the slots per battle, your game is a large majority of bots. If you take bot populations per battle, which is overwhelmingly bots, your game is mostly "bot wars" with humans sprinkled in for flavor. Maybe asking for a counter for human players is the wrong thing to ask for. How about a counter for in game bots?

The game itself, has many things I enjoy

1. Simple controls

2. for the most part minus long queues , the quick games

3. Generally fun to play with flight mates, and shoot stuff.

The cons.

1. Bot, and the way they influence a win or loss, is beyond understanding.

2. The time now to specialize a plane...is prohibitive...(for me anyhow) 

3. The cost to specialize a plane is ridiculous to outrageous.

3.1 I know of very few young new players coming to WOWP, literally none, its an older generation...new or younger players 

dont have the $$$ to feed this game, and just leave. (just look at what the human numbers are per game) its a slippery slope now.

 

I spent a boat load specializing 20+ planes...omg , I wonder what for with all these cons, and the list could go on.

Only thing that bugs me about MM, is how often you  buy a new plane and first couple of battles you always seem to be bottom tier against a 'Specialist' Plane. Your on stock Engine, Frame and Guns, and they can fly faster, turn faster, and make a mess of you from beyond you gun range...…….I know it's just unlucky due to who is online in what tier at the time, but still seems to happen until you've upgrade you plane. (takes tin foil hat off)

 

As long as they balance the 'Specialist' Planes on each team, and 1 doesn't get 3-4 and the other 0-1 I don't have a problem. Pilot ability and knowing how to overcome your Planes weakness and use it's strengths will beat a specialist. Unless it's the OP XF5U Pancake and your in any other Heavy Fighter. that fekking think needs a nerf.

Censorship of negative comments is a sign of a failing game though.

What are the current and total number of players online at a given time for NA? How many actually play more than 1 battle?

Discussion of other games belongs in Off-Topic or not at all.

 

If you would like, I can gladly remove that part of your comment and restore the rest.

you're absolutely right...  and i certainly qualify 

 

i've always been amazed at the decade-long fascination with ww2 video games, but that does seem to be over now

 

it's been almost 75 years, ffs     that's like two centuries in dog years to a millennial 

 

but certainly not to boomers

Feedback has been heard and we are discussing possible options and plans for the future.

 

 

Not sure where you got those numbers, but am interested to hear. 

 

 

 

 

Those numbers are actually, sadly, approximately accurate as of the last time they did show the number of players online.  I doubt many who quit at 2.0 came back.  Some, like me who came in at 2.0 and enjoyed it...until finding out that progression is not possible ingame due to bots deciding matches at higher tiers (ie, no pvp in a "pvp game" and a developer too stupid to just go with a co-op "pve" mode when player # are insufficient to support a pvp match).  I doubt this title has had a net gain of players over the last year and a half.  Wargaming is just too stupid, as far as a developer goes.  They really did need to separate the 3 server regions into 3 different divisions a long time ago.  What's good for Cult Putin isn't good for EU or NA.  

 

The game looks terrible (other than the aircraft), optimization is STILL terrible.  At least "the other developer" has a game that looks gorgeous and runs at smooth framerate, although I don't play that one either because again, Cult Putin developers are simply too stupid (and arrogantly so) to pay attention to what their western customers are looking for in a game. The tech tree in "the other game" is terrible.  Maybe if both companies fired the [edited]drunk on Cult Putin, both games would be good.
