Playing on my alt account in tiers 5- 7, almost everyone is a bot. Never seen this before. All have 0% wr and I can’t look up their profile. What’s going on? 

                                        

                                                                                                                          Keep it old school.

Bots, as you said before. They usually stop appearing after the first 50 games or above t7

nah, I have over 100 battles in my dragon. Over 50 in the other tanks I’ve been playing. I always check profiles after game, never seen it like this before. Logged off and back on, it’s not every game but still more than I’ve ever seen.

Wasn't there a thing where if you are inactive for some time or have consistently poor perfomance in battle, you would get thrown into a bot queue? 

I thought I remember something about a bot queue.

Probably not enough people playing t7 right now. Or maybe just some after battle glitch

I’m always active once I hit that battle button, regardless of which account I’m on.

If they are a low amount of players players in the new player queue - they will fill with bots for newer players till they 500+ games - after that MM will just kick you into the regular queue if it can't find you a match.

There are some EU accounts that have reported bots into the 1,500 game range.

    These days - nothing surprises me, except finding a team that functions as a team...

I made a thread about this a few months ago. I had about 10k games and the clanmate I was tooned with had about 20k games and we still got paired up with bots. I deleted the thumbnail that was attached to the thread but this was is the link

When a server population is too low for your algorithm to work, the easiest solution is to artificially increase the population to match the algorithm. This way, you can always say your algorithm works.

It’s really not artificial, it’s the way the Algorithm sorts.  
   While it is setup to get players into battle quickly it is also setup to ensure very new players face bots, and that after 50 games that there are human on human battles. 
   So if there was X number of very low battle players - it will keep the same number of those on each team - and fill bots to make up the difference.  But will default to grabbing higher battle players into their so as not to push sub 500 battle players into the unrestricted queue.   
    If those sub 500 players are in a toon, it can drag a high battle count toon into the game.

A couple more observations about last night- 

1.Bots have come a long way. Once in a while a bot would carry pretty a match after I died. I always thought bots in warships were superior, but now I think they are more effective there simply because the terrain has fewer obstacles.

2. I would see the same bots throughout the night (ginger girl, Oxom). I always assumed bots just randomly got named each match, but these guys are on call 24/7 it seems. 


                                        

                                                                                                                          Keep it old school.

I mean inactive as in not opening the game for a while.
