Agar.io: Tips,Guide & key elements for success and for just about any other .io games
Agar.io is a MMO action game created by Matheus Valadares. Players control a cell in a map representing a petri dish. The goal is to gain as much mass as possible by eating agar and cells smaller than the player's cell, while avoiding larger ones which can eat the player's cell(s). The name comes from the substance agar, used to culture bacteria.
The game was released to positive critical reception; critics particularly praised its simplicity, competition, and mechanics, while criticism targeted its repetitive gameplay. Largely due to word of mouth on social networks, it was a quick success, becoming one of the most popular web and mobile games in its first year. A Steam version was announced on 3 May 2015, and the mobile version of Agar.io for iOS and Android was released on 24 July 2015 by Miniclip.
1) 1) You're going to need patience.
When you play Agar.io, you must be committed to playing the game before you even think about getting on the leaderboards.
This is because the longer you play, the more the opportunities will pop-up. Yet, at the same time, extended play means a higher risk of losing everything that you have gained to another player.
3 hours of gameplay seems like a good time-frame.
Whatever way you look at it, Agar.io is going to be a game of patience, hence sometimes, the best move to play is to not play at all.
2) Not moving at all/Don't move around too much
When you start small, hiding behind the solid "green" cells can test the patience of the player stalking you, and eventually, another player will eat them up, or they lose patience and find another target.
To "not move at all", align your mouse to precisely the center of your screen, right click at that location, and well...
3) There might be a need for skill.
You're going to be moving constantly around the board once you reach the size where the solid "green" cells can split you. So be sure to dodge the larger cells, and eat up as many small cells as possible. With a larger cell, take care to draw them into the solid "green" cells, as you can still hide behind them (just not within them).
4) When going against players who have teamed up,you shouldn't panic.
We've all been there right? Well. You should know that the key element is to not panic when tackled by players who have teamed up.
I cannot emphasize this more than enough, you can press "space" to divide/split, however if you're at a large cell size, it would be quite the challenge to merge back into a single, large cell again.
If other players split you when you're still small, then try to avoid those players, and attempt to grow to the size larger than their split.
6) Move around to find victims.
When you're a large cell, seek out those higher then you on the leader-board. If they are divided, and your singular cell can eat a component of their split cells, then chase after it and absorb their split into your cell, which in turn grows you, and so you're able to eat their other components, and effectively, you have fully absorbed your target, and rise to the top of the leader-board.
