Just a few days ago there was barely 30k online players , today, there is almost 180k. Somehow, magically, more than 150k players "appeared" out of the blue. Then, i started noticing a lot of players without a camouflage on their tanks, a lot of unusual behavior in the game, weird games that end 15:2 or 3:15 within 3-5 minutes. I was not sure what was going on, but then it hit me, IMO WG balanced wheeled vehicles by adding a lot of BOTS to the game. So, we are in the new meta ladies and gentleman. We are against the future, we are Humankind Vs AI. I am sure we can win this war. GL & HF comrades.

Sometime you could even call your enemies/teammates that, but like every year it's the holiday season which always has been the time when a bunch of rusty players have started up their game and cleaned up the dust of their tanks.
In other words, Christmas, discounts, events & lootboxes = A bunch of players coming back to the game and many are rusty and haven't played in a long time.

A few days ago was before the Holidays. It might be news to you, but people have to work, go to school etc.

Well there is a very easy test to see if you are right or just a complete potato. As soon as the holidays are over, either the player numbers will stay the same because WG have added bots to the game or they'll drop back to normal levels because people have actual jobs and RL crapto do.

Online will drop because WG will just shut down their bots.

Damn! So those 2 Clan members I was platooning with were really AI players? And when I played certain tanks I became an AI player too. 

Now that is an impressive piece of game development by WG.

This really. This spike of players always occurs for the holidays at WoT. Many of them rusty so you get some very strange team deployment & tactics. Took me a while to adapt to it but back in business now!

The weirdest thing is that the exactly same thing happened a year ago, and same a year before that and year before that. It's honestly so weird. Scientists are still trying to find the reason but so far there has been nothing found.
