Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #5

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #5

Tips & Tricks #5 on Agar.io
#1 Split during early game!
In the early game, if you feel that the area you are in isn't under much threat, split yourself into multiple cells! As this will increase your rate of travel, along with the speed at which you can collect pellets, and also gives a useful boost to zoom scale, which may help in evading other cells. Doing this early means that you will be able to merge your cells quickly once you encounter an enemy, potentially taking them off guard and being able to consume them yourself. This is best done when you are on a less crowded server or having a bigger cell protecting you.

#2 Know your positioning!
This will become evident as you play, but some positional strategies include. Use your combining action to eat an unaware player. The most dangerous place may sometimes be the safest. Use super-massive players as a shield or loiter as close as possible to viruses, this will make them uninterested in you! Slip between large blobs to avoid getting eaten, when they can’t fire at each other. Always think a little further where you want to manoeuvre across players and virus cell. You don't have much reaction time in this game, the last thing you ever want is getting eaten and starting over again.

#3 Think like your enemies!
Everybody loves dots, and I also love dots! Take that into account that you’re doing serious planning to devour somebody! They’re most likely to follow the path with the most dots and players, and that's how most of us thinks. I’m going to repeat that again, and you are no different from any other players. Just go where you would go, the enemies almost always follow the path with the most dots! Secondly, when you and another player are double-teaming somebody, aim your trajectory so that it seems like the enemy will move into you instead of him. This has won me the prize on many occasions, so outsmart them!

#4 Learn to control the controls!
This one sounds silly, but most players aren’t conscious of the slight lag the game puts on the controls. When you move back and forth, you can see it in action. It’s only a fraction of a second, but crucial. This slight lag is why you find yourself hurling into the enemy without being able to stop. If you learn to control it, you can predict when that is going to happen and prevent a collision. Also don't flee from other players with the predictable path, try to avoid their anticipated direction by using unpredictable ways of getting the way around. Circling is a good way if you are having short lags, as people might think you are aggressive.

#5 Practice makes perfect!
The ultimate tip anyone can offer someone is practice. The more you play the game, the more experience you’ll gain and the better you will become. This advice isn’t mutually exclusive to Agar.io either as practicing anything will increase your skill. Reflect on your way of playing, the awareness of your mistakes is the most fundamental step on the way up the ladder. So don’t be discouraged if you get eaten a lot when you first start playing because as you progress, you will soon do better. Hope to see you on the leaderboard! :)

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #4

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #4

Tips & Tricks #4 on Agar.io
#1 Horizontal and vertical awareness!
A thing that most people overlook is the safety of floating horizontally, you have more vision and reaction time when moving horizontal compared to vertical, this may seem useless, but it’s quite useful. An example is if I’m moving upwards and my bigger opponents are moving downwards there’s just a split second for me to react, however, if you compare this to moving from horizontally there’s a fair amount of extra time for me for to react and move away from my opponents.

#2 Go for multi kills!
Going for multi kills is the best way to go when it comes to profitable Agar.io splits, just wait for multiple cells to line up and strike at the right time to get the most profit from your splits. Splitting yourself multiple times might be useful in some situations. At the back of your mind, keep comparing the size of your opponent’s cells is critical, for some things like splitting, trapping and planning your opponent’s next moves. Just bear in mind that you’ll need at least 10% more mass than your opponent to be able to eat him if you’re in one piece, and at least 25% more mass if you are split. You can be greedy but also remember to be safe at the same time.

#3 Don't underestimate any players!
You may think you are great at Agar.io, but not the only agar pro around, it’s, therefore, important to not underestimate your opponents, even though you have acquired the skills, your opponents may just be as skilled at Agar.io as you are. Smaller cells can be acting cool towards you, but he is waiting for the moment when you are vulnerable. Likewise, a bigger cell may seem to be protecting you all this while, all he is doing is investing you will grow big and be his food! Anything can happen in Agar.io, trust don't exist here unless you have real life friends playing on the same server as you.

#4 Mass shifting to merge!
Many players seem to overlook this simple tactic for survival which is called Mass Shifting. Mass shifting is a tactic when players start shooting mass towards the middle of their cells to combine quickly and grow one of their cells. It might come in handy and save you in sketchy situations where you need to combine fast, but I wouldn’t recommend to use it too much due to some mass loss while shooting (W) blobs. It is probably worth a try when the situation starts to get a little sticky and not in your favor.

#5 Trapping and getting trapped!
It’s relatively easy to get trapped in Agar.io, whether you’re getting surrounded by large cells, squashed against a wall, or in your best case forced to float into green spikes. You can partly prevent those things from happening by making smart moves, and analyze surrounding around you, so you can prepare yourself for what’s going to happen. Trapping one of the greatest tactics which will give you a significant advantage over your opponents. Trapped players will get panic and unsure about their fate, making indecisive moves which you can make used of it.

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #3

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #3

Tips & Tricks #3 on Agar.io
#1 Avoid getting eaten!
If somebody is heading right at you for 3 seconds without swerving, expect them to fire. If you’re a good player, you should be able just to snipe them without regret. What you can do to avoid getting eaten, is try to make it as awkward as possible for them. They're not going to fire at you when you’re at a 30-degree angle, or whatever is hardest. This primarily works when they are doubled. Usually, this works, because most people are noobs with noob aiming mode. Adopt a habit of skittishness in Agar.io. Make it a policy of running from all players on screen.

#2 Don't hesitate to eat!
One of the biggest mistakes people make in Agar.io is hesitating. They wait for the perfect opportunity. A good player can snipe people without hesitation. How? Don’t calculate. Remember one rule here: "If it looks like you can, you can. If it looks like you can’t, you can’t." Keep that rule in focus, and avoid calculations at all costs. As you play more, your ability to calculate will become perfect. Your greatest chance to eat somebody in Agar.io is within the first few milliseconds of the encounter when they’re still on a collision course with your character. Remember that rule, and you’re golden. Don’t be afraid! Practice aiming at low levels to get good at this.

#3 Focus on the enemies!
I tried both strategies, cell eating, and dot eating. However, dots eating is painfully slow in comparison. You’re not a gatherer, and you’re a hunter! Don’t be afraid to take a little loss over a few cells, because doing so will make it, so you’re more focused, faster runner, far more difficult to eat. When people see you’re not going for the dots, they can’t predict your movement! They lose interest very quickly. A stronger player who can eat more people and find better opportunities, then suddenly will appear in the leaderboard. Secondly, go try playing team mode for about an hour. After going through this torture for an hour you’ll see that you simply can’t focus on the dots, and you have to run from everybody! If you take this mentality to FFA mode, you’ll dominate.

#4 Eject a small amount of mass!
Trying to lure an enemy by ejecting some mass into their direction can be a surprisingly effective way of fooling them into getting eaten. This works especially well in Teams Mode when you have your allies as a backup. Only eject a small amount of mass towards a cell significantly smaller than 1/2 your mass. If they come towards you to take it, split to get them. If they don't, eject more mass. If they still don't take it, eject some more mass and split towards them. You will be using your ejected mass as a mass booster for splitting. When you split it, half of your main cell will almost instantly absorb the ejected mass while boosting you forward a significant amount towards the cell you want to eat. Now you can split again to eat that cell.

#5 Mind trick your targets!
One method you can use to catch cells easily is to fake playing passively. Often you'll find smaller cells zooming around your cell or dodging your cells split attack when you telegraph your intent to split towards them. You can trick them by simply going in another direction and as they get near, instantly turn your direction and split towards them. If your aim is accurate, you can catch someone off guard with a very easy split attack as they will not expect or be able to dodge your sudden movement. This trick can work at all levels of mass, but is best executed by cells with a mass less than 1000, due to bigger cells having slower instantaneous movement. Often larger cells cannot dodge cell attacks due to slower movement.

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #2

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #2

Tips & Tricks #2 on Agar.io
#1 Avoid virus cells at all costs once large!
Any Agar.io player who's been at it a while knows how easy it is to topple even the biggest cell with a simple obstacle, and some people go out of their way to try to break up large cells. It's best just to avoid obstacles once you reach a certain size threshold unless you're running from a larger cell. In these instances, you need to think quick and try your best to spawn another obstacle on them before they can corner you. It's a dog eat dog.

#2 Don't stop gathering the food cells!
You are consistently losing size. The larger you are, the faster you lose it. The tiny cells that spawn all over the map are a critical part of your diet, no matter your current size. You need them to get big when you're small, and you need them to supplement player cells once you're big. Don't think you'll be okay avoiding them once you're huge. For an idea as to how much mass you lose per second once large, click the gear before getting in-game and turn on 'Show mass' to see just how much you need those tiny cells to survive. You will be surprised! Gather food cells when searching for next feasting targets!

#3 Bait targets before your cells rejoin!
Some people are thirsty, and if you play your cards right, you may be able to take advantage of that. Your cells can't join back together unless you let them touch, meaning if their size difference is significant enough and you're pointing in the right direction, you can move around without allowing your cells to join back together. You can quickly change directions (or stop moving) to let them join quickly after keeping them apart for a while. This is perfect for baiting some players and has a few uses when escaping. Always be aware of your cells' locations and whether they're about to join again or not.

#4 Move around to find victims!
When you're a large cell, seek out those higher than you on the leaderboard. 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 leaderboard. You're not going to lose! Occasionally you may find a player with one cell much larger than the other. If the smaller cell is facing you and the larger cell is considerably larger than you, you will be easily able to catch and eat the smaller cell because the larger cell will block the smaller cell from getting away. Keep in mind that if the larger cell is more than double your size, he may kill you to save the smaller cell.

#5 Trust or don't trust?
Be careful in FFA, even though some cells might seem passive towards you that doesn't mean that they won't consume you at the first chance that they get. Some people have names that try to be friendly: "LoveOverHunge", "Let's Team Up”, etc. Since there’s no way to communicate, expect betrayal without hesitation, especially from larger cells. You can depend on smaller cells to be nice since they have no way of hurting you. I've noticed that people do team up, by prefixing their name with a team name (e.g., [UOA] or [HKG]). Team members help to feed smaller members, defend split members, and help to rejoin split members (by eating half of them than feeding the mass back in). Teams do far better than lone wolves but should you trust them? It's up to you to decide.

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #1

Agar.io: Tips & Tricks #1

Tips & Tricks #1 on Agar.io
#1 Use the boundary to your advantage!
Hugging the boundary is important for when you want to escape from a predator cell - particularly when there are solid virus cells that you know can protect you. At least 1/3 of your cell can overflow outside of boundary lines, which leads to an easy escape otherwise seemingly impossible. You cell does not burst, or pop when you hug the borderline, and hence becomes a crucial strategy to know to survive. On the other hand, the Agar.io game space does have its limits, and if you know where those are, you can use them to trap or corner your opponent. If you corner a smaller blob into the edge of the game, you’ll be able to absorb him easily because he’ll have nowhere to run. Learn to use it to your advantage

#2 Time your splitting carefully!
I know it's tempting to split your single cell into two to go after smaller prey, but it's not always worth it. And you need to be able to gauge the size difference between yourself and whatever you're thinking about eating because you go down to half your size when you split. Only split when you can guarantee that you'll not only be able to hit your target but that you won't be too small to eat them once you do. It's also almost always best to split when you can eat more than one target, making your splitting extra worth it. After you split kill and are in a corner, try to focus all your mass in one cell by pressing W. That way, if someone kills the small cell, the loss is not so great, and if they are small enough, you can eat them.

#3 Be extra careful when more than two cells!
You almost never want to split up too many times at once, unless you're trying to get away from bigger cells or it is guaranteed that you'll get much larger. This is particularly the case once you've gotten enormous. Each time you split, your cells are halved in size and doubled in amount. This means you're less capable of hunting down smaller cells, and you're very vulnerable until your cells join back together. Splitting too many times is one of the biggest causes of falling off the leaderboard, second only to getting cornered and trying to juke through virus cells or having someone spawn a new one on you. Only split when last resort, to save your life. By doing that, all your cells will be very small, and you'll have a hard time controlling them, giving your enemies an opportunity to finish you. Other than that, the more cells you split into, the more hostile cells will be able to consume you.

#4 Hide behind viruses!
So, while you're small, you’ll often see the aggressive larger blobs coming after you to eat you up. If one is in hot pursuit and you think you can’t get away, but a virus is nearby, that may be your best hope of survival. Big blobs don’t like viruses because once a blob is larger than the virus the virus can split it into pieces if they collide. By hiding your blob behind the virus, you’ll keep the larger aggressive blobs away from you.

#5 Virus cells as a weapon!
Those spiked virus cells aren't just there to make life difficult when you get big, you know. They can also be used as hiding spots when you're smaller than they are, and they can be used as weapons against larger cells. When you're larger than an obstacle cell, and you collide with it, you split into several smaller cells which are what makes them the number one size-ruiner; but you can use them to your advantage by shooting mass towards them. The 'W' key expels mass in the direction you're pointing the mouse, meaning you can aim mass toward an obstacle cell. And what happens when you shoot a bunch of mass into one? It spawns a brand new virus cell in the direction you were aiming. This is something you need to take advantage of when there are several large cells on the map, or when you are large and are trying to defend yourself from an even greater cell.

Agar.io: Lag Fix

Agar.io: Lag Fix

Lag Fix on Agar.io
#1 Choose the nearest server to your location!
Choose a server that might be the nearest to your location, or at least near in the broadest sense. If you are from Singapore for instance, check the East Asia Server in the options menu. This method is the most important one because it will reduce ping time (aka lag) directly.

List of Servers in Agar.io
- US West: California (USA)
- US East: Atlanta (USA)
- South America: Atlanta (USA)
- Europe: London (UK)
- Russia: London (UK)
- Turkey: London (UK)
- East Asia: Singapore
- China: Singapore
- Oceania: Singapore

#2 Stop downloads, stop other network consuming operations!
Reduce your traffic. Free your internet bandwidth by closing downloads, online streaming, buffering of long videos, other websites open in other tabs. Just imagine what these internet hogging operations can do to you when a sudden delay turns your Agar.io unresponsive for a few milliseconds to seconds? Your efforts are wasted to drain.

#3 Disable browser plug-ins, add-ons, and extensions!
The extensions installed on your web browser cause extra network traffic and may slow your network connection for Agar.io game. Shut down everything that nips your computer performance; especially browser plug-ins can be significant. The simplicity of the game doesn't imply high performance, do not be fooled by the look of things. Turning them off will increase your Agar.io game performance and fix your lag problems.

#4 Close all other tabs!
Close all the tabs and restart browser. Browsers of nowadays have too much trash in their cache and takes a little of the internet’s memory away, which is collected when you open new tabs. Closing tabs can squeeze you some free memory which is helpful in the long run!

#5 Incognito mode and refresh your browser frequently!
When playing in incognito mode, your browser does not keep and cache information like browser cookies. Effect of this method is less compared to others, but it may be worth to try. Some players indicate, the longer they play, the more the game stutters and spikes. Simply refresh your browser frequently. A good opportunity is after every death. This also puts you into a new room with a different set of players after refreshing.

#6 Try out different web browsers!
Try playing Agar.io in a different internet browser. High-security browsers such as Tor browser do not handle Agar well. Firefox is playable but tends to freeze up at the worst of times. Safari is slow and jittery. Internet Explorer is surprisingly smooth for Agar.io. Chrome is my browser of choice; however, browser compatibility will vary between people due to different platforms and connection speeds.

#7 Avoid playing during peak hours!
There are times when Agar is laggy purely because of all the people playing it, meaning you won't be able to do much about lag until the developer buy better servers and internet services. If this is the case, make note of the time and simply try to avoid playing during peak hours. Playing in the morning generally, have lesser players than any other timing.

#8 Restart your modem and limit your user on your Wi-Fi!
If there are other people on the same Wi-Fi network as you using the internet at the same time, consider playing at a different time from them so you can take full advantage of the available bandwidth. Activities that require a large amount of data transfer (e.g., downloading files, intense gaming) will have an impact on your connection speed. Or maybe you’re just too far from your WiFi source, try moving closer, it will give you more internet speed, and it might just be the fix for your Agar.io lag problems.

#9 Enabled no skins, and dark theme!
Play without skins and everything you can go without. Yeah, I know everyone loves skins but this setting may make your game faster. Sometimes you have to sacrifice for something. Some players also mentioned they have better performance with the dark style. I guess the white background can be quite too much for our eyes if stared long enough.

#10 Lower your graphics quality!
Lag can occur when your computer does not have the power to handle it. One easy way to smoothen out your gameplay is by lower your graphical quality. Setting it to 'very low' will save your computer from using a little bit more CPUs and GPUs power to run Agar.io. Remember there are hundreds of player cells with/without skins, and also, all the pellets scattered around... Your computer needs to process all these objects, not only your cell alone.

Agar.io: Facts

Agar.io: Facts

Facts on Agar.io
- You pick up food cells or aka pellets to grow. Each pellet gives you 1 point in mass.
- The bigger your mass, the slower you can move.
- At Size 35 onwards, you can eject a blob of size 16 to increase your passive movement speed or feed a virus.
- At Size 150 onwards, you can create another virus by feeding an existing virus 7 times.
- At Size 150 onwards, you are large enough to explode an existing virus.
- At Size 400 onwards, due to a passive loss of mass (about 20/s), it becomes nearly impossible to retain size by eating neutral blobs which only contribute a single point of pass each.
- The maximum size limit is 22,500.
- Going over 22,500 will get you split in 2 automatically, and cannot be combined if two or more cells adds up to a 22,500.
- The more pieces you are in, the more zoomed out the map is, and the further off you will be able to see cells that want to eat you. Of course, the smaller your cells are, the more quickly you will be eaten.
- The space bar key divides you in half. One-half shoots forward, the other backwards a little. Doing this is great for getting out of tight situations and also eating other cells.
- After a minute or so of being in smaller pieces, your pieces will go together to form a large cell again.
- You can only eat other cells that are smaller than you.
- Without dividing, you must be at least 10% bigger in diameter (and hence slower), so you have to pin the smaller cell somehow into a corner, virus, or larger cell.
- By hitting the spacebar and dividing yourself in two, you can shoot forward and catch the smaller cell. The cell you’re shooting half of your mass at must be less than ~1/3 your original mass, or you’ll go through it or worse yet, eaten.
- The W key shoots out mass in the direction you were moving. You can use this to feed your friends, temporarily lighten your mass to move faster, or feed the virus cell (the green spiked circles).
When in 4 or more pieces, you can self-feed by pointing your cursor to the blob you'd like to grow and pressing W.
- The green viruses, pop larger cells into many tiny little pieces and especially rewarding for popping large cells.
- The ejecting mass feeds the green viruses into them. After being fed 7 times, they shoot a second green virus out. The projecting virus goes in the direction of the last cell added to it.
- The only moderation that names have is that they’re limited to 14 characters. For some reason, the people who choose to play Agar.io tend to pick somewhat descriptive names. There’s an option to have “no names” in the settings menu if you don’t like seeing profanity.
- If you want to have a “skin”, choose one of these names. They are automatically applied.
- Also, mods are allowing you to connect to the same server are your friends (Agar.io mod). I haven’t done this personally.
- You cannot split into more than 16 pieces. This means that once you’re in 16 pieces if you’re big enough to pop a virus, it will feed you and make you bigger without cutting you up more.
- There is no sound in Agar.io, which means you can talk with your friends, listen to podcasts, or jam to electronic dance music while scooting around eating other cells smaller than you.
- Every blob loses mass passively with time. The larger you are, the more mass you degenerating.
- Your score corresponds to the largest you have been in your current life.
- There’s a 50% chance for cells to spawn on ejected blobs.
