I assume that is what happens. People give up and drop when someone is totally dominating and then ultimately there aren't enough players and the board just stops. Last night I was at a pretty good score when it froze up. I was bummed. When I moved to a new board someone was generating bot players all over the place. It made it real easy to feed once I figured out what to look for. That was a nice bonus, I guess.

Did you guys notice a new decay behaviour?

When teaming, instead of a synergy, now there is an anti-synergy behaviour, where through W'ing, you lose a lot of the total mass (like a significant amount, without losing any mass to others. Found a partner at around 1000 mass, although we should have been 5k each after the conquest, we were left with 400's, I sacrificed my blob to my partner and left)

I've also noticed big blobs starting to decay rapidly (all of these in the last 5-6 hours)

I haven't noticed this but yesterday I experienced a glitch while playing in Experimental mode. My mass was shrinking really quickly, even at around 30 mass I started shrinking at 1 per second, all the way down to the minimum 10. I had to close the tab and open a new one to fix it.

Also, the last few days it seems like finding a willing team partner is getting harder and harder. Maybe it's just different on the weekends...

I think they are live experimenting, rapid dividers have disappeared after the issue I mentioned, solo-ing started being more rewarding, it's pretty boring (it might be why you couldn't find a partner, since people likely adapted to the new dynamics, or the experimental ones for that matter)

Spent 30 minutes in the leaderboard solo a while ago, it was the most boring game I played, I was relieved when someone finally pwned me :)

No changelog entries either, but something has changed as there are no live previews before the first game

The game stopped being fun, but I'm still addicted, it's bad

well the stupid game definitely punishes W's now

it's too painful to play, previously the game was about friendship and trust, currently it's the opposite, it's more about pain, loneliness, friendship being punished and not being able to communicate the situation

As far as I know you've always lost 20% of your mass per W. That was one of the first things TP4 taught me like a month ago. Efficient play means never using the W key except in emergency situations.  The trick is to break yourselves over viruses or split directly into your partner.  Splitting is 100% efficient and virus breaking (although scary) adds additional mass to your system which you can feed into your partner.

How does tp4 know so much about the internals of the game? I haven't seen numbers like that posted anywhere.

That's a good question. I think he just field tested it although I'm not totally sure. We've done field testing recently to figure out things like minimum size for virus breaking or minimum size to pick up a w drop. I don't think people post the numbers because knowing them gives you a distinct advantage.  The W mass loss is definitely not common knowledge because we see teams all the time on the top who still use that method and they never stay on top.

I just did some browsing, it looks like they've increased the mass loss even further when you use the W key. I think that's awesome! I'll have to do some testing to figure out the actual percentage though.

Hrrrmmm....



It seems  Each ejection cost 18 mass,   each ejected mass is 14 mass value (when absorbed).   so 77.778 % efficient..

They know!! On a serious note, have they fixed the bot problem? Last time I tried playing it was impossible to beat the bot based teams.

Man..  Ramage was right.. The botters totally make certain instances unplayable.

Essentially this is how botting works.

They sign up at some agar.io bot website.

Then the site supplies the bots which will login to the same game that you're playing. and feed you


Now, here's the problem.. 

--- Each instance of the game has a maximum number of players limit.

---  EACH botters take up something like 30 player slots to bot, 

--- --  if there are 3 botters,   that is 100 player slots taken up, which means,  there could only be 100 real players, the rest are the bots to feed the 3 botters..
------  Now, it's impossible to beat the botters,  because there is not enough units in the general crowd for you to get big quick enough to catch the botters.

No matter how good you are,  you cannot beat the botter, because each player count is too low.

Even if you manage to get to a large size,  you can not hold onto the lead, because the botters can gather resources faster than you can travel across the screen

sigh...........

Ya that's why I have taken a break from playing until it gets fixed.  I found it to be impossible to play well.  I don't understand why the creator doesn't implement a basic captcha
