They’ve been here for the past 2 years, not sure about before, but I’ve asked about this and many are anticipating their return, not many people have a clue though so I’m hoping this post attracts somebody who knows. This might be a scenario like in 2021 where we can only hope there’s enough demand chess.com brings them back

Idk they removed the duolingo bots so maybe.

The Duolingo release article mentioned that would be around until December 2nd, so that is likely one reason they weren't released.

I haven't heard anything about off the Holiday bots are coming out again this year, but I assume they will be soon.

that’s not the reason, I really don’t care about the bots themselves

beating them give you an achievement each, and I missed out on this opportunity last year not knowing they exist

so since February I’ve been awaiting their return just to not get specifically what I want, it’s been those bots for the past 2 years so it’s just infuriating to see a deviation that doesn’t favor me
