Where exactly are you going with this?

 

So the player count dropped, so what? It'll come back.

 

Or it's just a false reading.

Note that may only just has begun. As may gets more days in the data, that deep drop will level out. At least wait with your doomsaying till may is 30 days old at least. In that graph, April 2019 is the last one with full data as may player data is still collecting, because its only 3 days old hence the deep drop off.

Honestly, this game can die but I don't know with what I can replace it. 

I mean, what's out there ?

That retarded Fornite and all the battle royale genre. The best there for me is still PUBG. But ... 0 player interaction. 
LOL/Dota 2 not my style. I preferred WC3, SC1&2 but were too exhausting. 

WoW ... I have outgrown that game and that endless grind. Good memories although. 

 

So, what's left ? Something not pinky, fluffy and infested with kids. Preferably to have some action (not card games) and some decent player interactions.

War Thunder?

I'm starting to read stuff about it, wiki, etc.

 

Has much more variety, vehicle-wise, mechanic-wise. Unsure about the playerbase, tho. I'd rather play with humans than with bots.

Dota 2 has good matchmaking, 100% competitive and real f2p  just too much clicking and long games.

Try EVE Online.

Good is you're the arty/TD type of player.

In all honesty, EVE is the slowest game I've ever played, and playing at high level feels like a job.

I was fleet commander in IRON back during the Great Northern Wars and it wasn't unusual to stay on duty for 12+ hours straight.

 

Not a bad game though, but the only one I never returned to.

We had a topic like this last year, in fact several. And the year before that, and the year before that again. As we get that drop after the Xmas rush at some point around late April or mid to late May. Last year we had it in late May. Sudden and rapid drop on daily logins. I suspect this year will be no different until Sept again.

Oh yeah. Def the best game for new players today. Tbh I played it for years. And atm it's in a terrible state to be any fun tbh.

War Thunder makes WOT look like a loveable charity. Pure pay to win, shady business practices and an unholy, unbalanced mess. I played it and I quit.

Things will drop in the summer and with good reason

 

Plus there's the frontline effect

 

I'm only really farming credits and crew xp until a frontline week appears, not playing as intensely now

A good game might happen along but that tends to be the exception not the rule

Are you saying that FL being a better and more balanced mode with a more intense grind is negatively affecting randoms?

Active population went up a little after patch 1.5, you're not telling me those people aren't actually playing games. This graph drop is nearly certainly a lack of data, not a drop in players playing.

Nope, no one played any battles recently!

Only an opinion

Someone in here described randoms as billy-goat-track tanks which was a pretty fair assessment

Corridor tanks is not normal

 

Tank warfare is open maps, with or without cover and hazards

 

No-one sends their tanks into a city or into a blind mountain pass, they go round that stuff or send in the foot sloggers with arty and air support if they can't avoid

 

(The final battle for Berlin was obviously an exception)

It's an arcade tank shooter and always has been, it's never pretended to be a war simulator.
