At some points in the week it feels dead, but that is obviously because players have their own lives. There is a lively competitive community i think, but this is reserved for the best warlight players. Some games, and especially many tournaments, have high prerequisites, which makes it impossible for new players to play in them.
From where im standing, the game is hemorrhaging active players, I remember playing a with a few players only a few months ago before they disappeared without a word. I played a 1v1 game with Cloud Strife recently and at the end he told me he wouldnt be on for some time, which is sad because he is a good player and active on chat. Even René is not playing as much as he used to.
It was unlikely the game would remain highly active indefinitely, i remember a few years ago i was seeing pages of RT games open at any point during the day, and a lot of diplo games which i really enjoyed. Either regular veteran players drop out and the game dies, or they are replaced by new players, but more people seem to be leaving the game than joining it. That being said, i dont think people would leave the game forever, i stopped playing for almost a year before i came back to this game. People will come back to this game.

The statistics keep showing there are more Warzone players than before - just in different places.

The real-time lobby is as good as dead, and those few games still there are the same two templates. In return, however, is Quick Match, which is doing great. This probably figures in Elohim's (^) observations: real-time diplo's of course do not feature in Quick Match.

So the players' base hasn't shrunk, it has just moved from things like tournaments, ladders and lobby to Quick Match. I'm not too happy with it either, but it seems a good thing for the game in general.

Eh, I know Fizzer had a whole section about statistics in a blog not too long ago. Maybe New Years', or the one year anniversary of UJS? I can't find it on the blogs (https://www.warzone.com/blog), so maybe I'm misremembering.

This isn't the first time people have voiced concerns that the games is "dead" (or "dying"), though (see, for example, https://www.warzone.com/Forum/324032-warlightwarzone-dead), and Fizzer himself has stated every time that the amount of users has increased.
Just not in the places the old players hang out.

Haven't both Rene and Cloud Strife been officially "retired" for some time now?

The numbers on https://www.warzone.com/About was updated automatically (every once in a while, rounded down) back in the days. It used to say #games played, now it says #games played each day. I still think it is done that way, so now it's 10 000 games per day. Check in a few months and see if it has gone up :P

You can also check the profile ID's of new accounts and compere them, if you want to see the growth of created accounts.

I don't think a soul caught the joke of "it's not but it feels like it". It is true that this game feels dead because Diplomacy games or Axis and Allies is super slow filling.

Because players are more into QM.
Open games, any type, fill slowly compared to time before qm.

Hi guys,
Haven't been here for a long time.
I've just played some games and have to say they give me the same fun as they used to be.

"I don't think a soul caught the joke of "it's not but it feels like it""

no one got the joke as you gave no indication of it being a "joke" and i dont think you meant it as a joke in the first place and you're just saying that now.

". It is true that this game feels dead because Diplomacy games or Axis and Allies is super slow filling.""

then dont say "warlight feels like it's dead" but "Diplomacy feels like it's dead".

You have only multi day mode:
1v1 ladder, 2v2 ladder, 3v3 ladder, seasonal ladder (with few players), MD Ladder, Clan League, Clan Cup, Few P/R League open opportunity to create new competitions. I think we have a lot to do here.
