Agar.io: Teaming in FFA mode

Hi Agar.io fans,

In our early writings, we mentioned about how to start teaming and advantages of teaming. To sum up “teaming” in Agar.io is to act in an ally state with another player for mutual benefits. You can start teaming with another player by proving him that he can trust you like sending him some mass or helping him to eat his target. Then you team up with your ally and rule the Agar.io world.

Is Teaming Good or Bad? Why People of Agar.io Hate it?

Teaming is a very fast way of becoming leader in Agar.io game. On the other hand, people in Reddit and Agar.io forums HATE teaming and complain about teaming should be banned in FFA mode. Because FFA means you show your skills, fight alone. Teaming kills personal skills and you die instantly because you can not defend yourself against team members if you don’t have a pal. You can not believe how many mails we receive each day that teaming should be banned. People loving to play as teams can no wonder play in “Team Mode”. Team mode is a mode designed for team-playing.

Can Teaming be Banned, Technically?

Technically speaking, to ban teaming is a hard job to do. Because there IS a feature to send some mass to others. To detect whether a player sent a mass to other for teaming or another reasons/strategies is difficult but of course not impossible. Developer can easily prevent teaming by checking amount of mass and sending frequency that a player sent to another player.

To my opinion “Teaming” will continue for some time but in a day (may be weeks of a few months later) it will be banned. Because lots of players team up and that makes others piss off really much. What do you think guys? Are you a teaming lover or hater? Should it be banned? Please leave your comments below.

        i hate how teamers can get away with using tactics that would if it were a solo player easily mean the end of them, it’s funny when they split to feed their buddy and you get in the middle of them and destroy them both, that’s just like wow there’s 2 of you and you still can’t win your skill level must be worse than that of my 89 year old grandma.

      Do you even know what FFA stands for? Free For All. Everyone against everyone.
      If you enjoy teams, go play on teaming servers then, fucking moron, and stop ruining a brilliant game with lame tactics because you got no skill to survive on your own – which is highly noticeable as whenever the partner disappear, these retards just dies quickly because they sucks when they’re alone again.

      Most servers are now dominated by a couple pieces of shit trusting the board, that you cannot defeat unless they do a mistake.
      I even have seen my fair share of servers getting depopulated and dying just because of this.

      Teaming just kills the game, and people like you are responsible for that.

        Calm down a bit.

        I get the point that FFA is not meant for people teaming up, but I liked both playing solo and teaming up with random people there.

        The teaming mode is not fun to me because there I’m stuck with one of just 3 teams.

        There should be an additional mode with ‘free’ teaming where you can team up by exchanging mass (w), where teams are only fixed till death and where the leader board is still individual (with possible addition of team symbol).

        It was more difficult to get to the top before, but it certainly wasn’t impossible to get to no.1 playing solo. I did so on several occasions.

        The Current FFA is the way it should be, but adding a new mode where teaming up is meant to happen should satisfy all parties.

          Teaming basically takes the game from Difficult to Very Easy. Pro-team is a misnomer because pro’s don’t set the difficulty mode to Very Easy. Viruses are no danger, you can catch up to larger cells and then have your player split into you, you can split multiple times to consume small cells with no risk because you can feed your partner. Basically teaming is a way for little kids to feel like they are winning by essentially putting the difficulty on Easy mode.

        I agree with Rum. Calm down! Think off your heart. It’s only a game.

        But I also agree; It’s less fun with teaming in FFA. But we have to live with that. If you don’t want that try team mode.
        (And if you are blue with only a thenth part of the leaderpie (circle) in blue it’s a challenge on it’s own to form a team!)

        Or you find youself a way to mess up the teams.
        I’ve decided to kill every cell that W’s me; every cell with “W plz” or the dull “Need a bro” and things like that.
        Number One on the leatherboard for me is only on sundaymorning on an American server (I’m from Europe) I’m fit and wake they almost fall off their chair. 😉
        On the European server I reached 2300 mass on my own with four big teams circling around. And yes they killed me. Not because they where bigger or smarter. No, I flew myself into a corner.
        As the name one cell says it: Deal with it.

        I starting playing at the end of last week and was hooked. Unfortunately, it has taken less than a week for me to drop this game. It is so disappointing because this is a great game that I want to play, but one can’t overcome this teaming frenzy. I was enjoying increasing my skills, but quickly have come to the point where there is little room for any more growth against the teamers. They’ve created a ceiling. The fun is gone and, for the most part, so am I until teaming goes away in FFA.

    Well there is something called a TEAM mode. Although monopolizing a server is fun to most, it’s called FFA for a reason. REALITY CHECK. Eat or be eaten. I played this when FFA and team were the only modes and I thought it was better and much more enjoyable when it was every man/woman was for him/herself. It was harder to stay in the top, hence the addicting thrill of being the top dog. Now unless you form a team, it becomes nearly impossible to crack the top 5. Too many weenies that can’t win with their own skills. Should be banned.

        I found a way to stop that teaming.

        In this case it doesn’t work if your blue since green and red are teaming.

        But if I was green I place myself between the splitted green blobs and then push the outer blob away. Preferably against a virus or in a big (blue) blob.
        It’s hard work (because no one understands (until now) what I’m doing). You need about 250 mass most times. To much makes you to slow. When I’m on a Team Braking Mission I never eat other blobs, I only graze. Takes time but fighten other blobs is to risky and I’m to busy avoiding getting eated.
        When between the cells watch out for the red blob circling around the green cell you push. And for the other red en blue ones.
        If you kill one loiter in de hood of the red leftover. Soon he”ll will be accompanied again by a much smaller blob and then before he gets mass from red….Shoot!!!
        I succeeded a few times. They get annoyied and leaf for another server (or start crying in their bed).
        I’m from the Netherlands so I hope you’ll understand my English.

        Now I’m trying to find a way to annoy teams in FFA. But I think I’ll have to team up to kill a team. That’s the paradox. :)

        January 27, 2016 at 4:14 pm — Reply

        A lot of people learned how to play and it still happens! It’s almost impossible to escape a teamer. Why? Because it allows a person who is smaller than you, to be able to eat you, it allows a person to split into 16 pieces and not be under threat, it allows a person to hit a virus and recover from it way too quickly. And most importantly, it allows all of what I just said to happen with very little use of skill. NONE of this is supposed to happen in FFA or experimental. Teaming is basically the equivalent of hacking. The game becomes unnecessarily easy for you, and unnecessarily difficult to others.

        YOU learn how to play agar.io by YOURSELF! If you want to team, go to party mode. It’s too difficult for you? Teamers in party mode are too strong? Well that’s EXACTLY what solo players feel about teamers in FFA and experimental.

    I believe teaming/allying should stay in FFA mode.

    Why? Well, I believe in the rule of “survival of the fittest” and “survival of the smartest.” Gaining one’s trust by feeding him or her mass can get you a long way in FFA mode because it can help take down the biggest (well, largest) threat in FFA mode and get someone else, who was smart enough to ally and accept other people’s mass and assistance, to the top. FFA mode is more than just skill, it’s puts how smart you are to the test as well. People should look at the person’whose trust is being earned’s perspective rather than the person who is trying to earn the trust to gain and help an ally. (Sorry if all of this is terribly worded, 3AM.)

    I hope teaming/allying stays.

        FI that’s a bunch of bull. The if you want to team up and play with friends to stay on top go to team mode. It is wrong for people to take over the top 3-4 spots and make sure that no one can even get close. One of them will just split themselves up to take the next guy out the feed himself into his friend at that point the friend will fill him back up. Now for all the other people playing, is this fair? No. The only thing left for them to do is to “Esc” and hope they can find a new server that they at lest have a chance to win, but most likely not for the cheaters are on almost all the servers. The only way to win is to find a team and try to get better….. Oh, wait. That’s called TEAMS! Go play that and leave the FFA to those who want to play FFA.

        Teaming should be banned in FFA for all goodness sake. If you want to team and take over the leaderboard and eat the bigger cells, then why don’t you go to Party Mode or Team Mode. It should be freaking obvious that FFA is for solo players only because of the mere existence of Team and Party Mode.

        But hey, Mike Sus Scrofa; you are so right. You can’t really split-team with the same color in Team Mode because you can’t eat the same color. W-team is the only option for them hahaha.

        And for Party, it lurks with real pro-team players (e.g., Pine and Asuma in YouTube). You can’t really win, even with a team if you’re not skilled like Jumbo or Wun Wun.

        So actually it’s fine by me if players team in FFA so long as they accept that they’re weak as hell.

      I don’t see how dividing indiscriminately to eat any smaller cell that wanders too closely, then feeding all but one of your cells to a partner, be w-fed to grow and repeat demonstrates any higher intelligence.
      Teaming doesn’t show you are smarter than those who play by themselves, and it requires very little of you, if anything, to form a team, since people looking for it are so comon. Just reach about 500 mass and you are set.

      To eat a cell by yourself, you either have to move intelligently, so they can’t scape you, or be quick and risk dividing and live for a while in smaller halves, running away from bigger cells. You need to assess if your mass is big enough to eat someone else by either method, and assess the risks involved.
      With a team on your side? No risk or challenge anymore, divide away and redistribute mass. They too large for you? No problem, just be w-fed until you are evidently larger and eat, then redistribute mass.
      A virus made you explode? who cares! just send your pieces to your mates and be w-fed to reach the same size you had seconds ago.

      Teaming doesn’t show anyone is fittest, as you call it. It only shows they want to be in the top positions with as little effort as possible and, most of the time, with little skills.

      I fail to see what is the satisfaction people get from this.
      What’s the point of being first place if you have to cheat or be unfair to get there?
      It’s just the same as in real world sports: what is the point of being world champion if you had to take drugs to get there?

        This.

        No need further explanation, its so frstrating to see top 5 spots taken by team.

        If you play the game as it was intended to in FFA mode, you get a 30 minutes thrilling session to get to the top, and trying to stay there until you get inevitably shot by a virus ^^ Hyper fun.

        The same as a team ? 10 minutes getting to the top, with little to no stress, then trusting top position as long as you want, with no risk beside fucking up badly…Certainly feels like any “god like” mode I tried in any game…

        Banning teaming in FFA should be a no brainer.

        Asking for teaming in FFA to stay is, in regards of what is said everywhere on forums & Co is pretty pathetic.

    Teaming kills the whole spirit of the game in FFA. They are usually going after small players and (as said in the main article) they are defenseless. This way the game becomes a waste of time, which is the main reason a lot of people left the game. Only in my circle of friends I know at least 10 people who were die hard fans of the game, and they are not playing anymore.

    There is a way to at least trick teams, but only if/when you have enough free time.
    1. Watch the game in spectate mode and wait for one of the team members to get eaten. This happens quiet a lot actually, mainly accidentally.
    2. When this happens, quickly join the game with that team member’s name.
    3. Go near the big team member, the one’s who’s waiting for the other one to pop up near him. Eat some food on your way and eject a mess in the big blob giving the sign that you returned.
    4. The big one will start feeding you, thinking you’re his real teammate. Sometimes you’ll have to eat a few other players until you get the chance to eat him.
    5. The moment he has split into small pieces to feed you, strike and eat him up.
    6. Spread your mass around and make other players happy. :)

    This actually worked for me and I’ve destroyed at least 6 teams in less than an hour. You have to tackle the trust factor in the game until the Agario stuff will decide to do something against it (if they’ll ever consider banning it).

    I think there should be a calculation as to how much and how often two people exchange mass, and once it hits a certain amount (clearly teaming), they should be banned. It has completely ruined the game. It’s now pointless playing it unless you’re willing to play with someone else. Defeats the purpose of “FFA”.

    Why not let the market decide? Would it be difficult to create another game mode called “Solo FFA” with code that prevents mass-redistribution? I would like to see if more people would select “Solo FFA” or “Team FFA”.

    I suspect that “Team FFA” people would eventually change their mind because all the unsuspecting victims would switch to “Solo FFA”. Once the easy-pickings disappear, “Team FFA” would be unpopular.

    Then the overall popularity of Agar.IO would increase since many users stopped playing after spectating a server and realizing that unless you have a team to redistribute mass with, don’t bother playing.

    This is for the makers of agar.io, I dare you to play an unnamed cell all by yourself and make it to the top and keep it for five minutes. And if you truly can and think it is ok to team up then let it stay. But if you can’t and start getting mad because you can’t make it there all alone then stop the teaming. I am done with agar.io for now and if you could e-mail me when its fixed I’ll come back. I played for almost 5 hours and could not get above 7th place for longer then 10 seconds. So please look into it for the ones that love to play your game fair. Thank you for your time.

    I loved playing agar.io in my free time. It was fun to climb up the leaderboard and become the leader. But lately it has become unplayable and utterly frustrating to climb because of teaming.

    Almost every server has two or three teams constantly grabbing small to middle size blobs. I spend almost 10 mins or so to find a server where people are not teaming(via spectate) but eventually someone starts teaming up and before u know it they clog the leaderboard.

    I understand the developers of the game want to keep the game simple and fun to play, but there is an obvious flaw in the game which needs to be fixed.
    Maybe the party mode was introduced to encourage all teamers to go and play there, but i dont think it has worked.
    There are some ideas to curb teaming in FFA :
    1. introduce time delay on splitting and ejecting mass, for example your first split is instant but for to split again into four pieces you have to wait 0.5 secs, again to split into 8 peices you have to wait another 1sec and so on…..same for ejecting mass(in sums of 15 or 20 Ws)
    2. always change server when you have grown larger than 1000 mass or something.
    3. or else simple detect if player is splitting or ejecting mass too much and log him/her our of the server, and place in a new server.

    I love playing this game, i hope you guys do something about this problem.

    Teaming in FFA is definitely a problem for the game. Individuals playing against teams are at an obvious disadvantage, such that the mere existence of teams encourages the formation of still more teams until FFA mode is no longer FFA at all, but actually team mode. Now that it has become necessary to shuffle through FFA servers to find one that’s actually FFA, the need for an adjustment would seem apparent. It would be simple enough to apply diminishing returns to mass inheritance, preventing the formation of teams while preserving the strategic or friendly use of its ejection.

    Over all you don’t need to set up a new server thing to make banning programs. All you need is a program that makes admins and giving them the power to kick people from a sever. Lets say you made me a admin, all I would do is just play the game as normal, you know having fun, and i see someone teaming up to stop anyone from getting on the board. Like if I get killed by someone that’s on a team by over spacing themselves and then feeding himself back to his buddy. I would then go into spectating mode so I could watch them for a bit to make sure that this is going on, and if it is just kick them from the server. Now I know that’s a lot of power that you give to someone, so have it where the admin has to record it in spectate mode. So if someone says they were kicked out unfairly the admin could show what it was for. I would love to do this not just for myself, but for all the fair players out there that love this game. Thank you for you time and I love your game.

    honestly guys I have some mixed emotions about the ideas of the players, like having a new game mode or having an admin etc.. I think all of them is right. .. i hope the creators of agar can resolve this problem.
    But i think what’s really annoying and destroying this game other than teaming up in FFA, is teaming up in Team Mode. i know this sounds crazy, and i also know that “teaming” with other colors is not prohibited , BUT only if your color and whoever you want to team with is on the losing side, just like what other said that if the enemy team has controlled over 75% of the mass, you should consider teaming up with the other minority. NOT on the start or the middle of the game..
    and please, can you make it so that we get our experience while playing and not after we get eaten?, most of us ( or just me )freezes when there is large amount of mass in the screen.. so all of the time we spend and accumulated experiences will turned to nothing :(

    I hate alliances in FFA mode, the game returns extremely bored. Even when I decide to follow that logic, is non-sense.
    I think there is a way to prevent this and is the next one:
    _ First, create an space where you are warned that only can play alone without alliance.
    _ Users should be able to mark other users (or something similar, I mean by name or whatever). Of course with the intention to mark those who makes alliances.
    _ When a user recieves many marks (one mark per user), for example 5 or 10 marks, then the user is banned
    _ To make this effective, banned users can’t get in to agar.io for a lapse of time (by IP or whatever), for example 30min

    haha, I really hate that

    I know I’ve been make a lot of post on here. Reading all the other post here and some people have great ideals, but in every server and every mode people are cheating. I spent an hour in every mode on many servers, and the same thing happens on every single one I went to. Cheating. So over all the only way to make it a fair game is to put admins in the game to watch the servers. After some time they will learn to play with fairness.

    I have tried to look at this situation differently in the past few times I have played, taking the fact that there will be teams as just another challenge of the game, and to some extent it makes it less annoying.

    I have started to think of ways to overcome the unfairness of teams in FFA, as if it were a part of the game.
    One thing I have started to do is to get between the team members. If none of the team members is big enough to eat you as you get close to them (same size you are), they will tipically start to transfer mass like crazy, just as the tipical reaction of single players is to run away. This gives them time to transfer enough mass to grow to the point where they can split and eat you.
    In this situation, instead of running away, get closer and pass through one of them (won’t eat you, because you both are roughly the same size), until you get between them.
    This alone usually leaves them not knowing what to do, since they can’t transfer mass safely anymore. After this, there are too many posibilities: Sometimes they disband, sometimes I get to eat the smaller one, sometimes there is a long chase and nothing happens, sometimes they are three, four or more players helping in their team and there’s nothing to do about it. During the heat of battle, I have even received mass intended for the teammate, grown and ended up eating the bigger teammate!
    Anyway, it sure is fun to see them unarmed and not knowing what to do for a while.

    Another thing to do is follow a team from some distance waiting the moment one of them is small and then eat it. This is not super effective, but works when the team members are not complete assholes. When they are, you will be eaten even if you are far from them, since they can split several times and reach very far, and even if you get to eat the smaller member of a team, the bigger one can split just to get back at you, since replacing teammates is easy.

    I also have started to detect teams as they are forming, and do everything I can to disrupt them before they get too massive, even if this means sacrificing mass.

    I still think teams in FFA are utterly unfair and should be banned in some way or another, but for the time being, trying to deal with them as you would any other hard game challenge helps a little with the frustration. I can still get to place #1, but only once in a while, it now is much harder, and when I get there, it doesn’t last as long…

    Now, the game is showing a graph of mass versus time when one finally loses. If the game is registering this information, then it should be no problem to check for repetitive big changes in mass (up and down) that occur periodically (the hallmark of teaming) and then take some action, like banning IP or simply resetting their game. Same goes for projecting too much mass in too short a time or to the same people again and again.

    I also think teaming in FFA is something that will put away users instead of bringing them in/making them stay.

      I’m with you. There’s too many teams on the FFA servers. I tried to play Team Mode for a few times. In 3 of 5 games there was teams between different colours.

      I’ve tried to split teams on FFA, but as you say, they’re only eating their teammates smaller parts. There’s no such way to defeat them.

      But what if we discussed other gamemodes. Experimental. I would say that it’s not OK to team either there. For me it’s still a gamemode where many plays alone.

      But now to Party. There’s almost ONLY teams. So, for me, it’s OK to team there. Party is, for me, a team server with the same rules as in FFA. That’s why I think it’s OK to team there.

      Teams. Fine, if you and your teammate got the same colour. Not if you’re red and she/he is green. If you want to team either way, play Party. If you don’t want to; don’t play!

      That’s my opinion. What about yours?

    Teaming should definitely be banned! It’s not fun, you’re eaten when you’re really small and then, when I tried to team, some of the “friend” blobs ate me out of nowhere. It’s really annoying and they’re indestructible, because you hit them with viruses and it doesn’t change a thing. Although well, I’m not too pro neither :)

    The names of the teamers are getting weirder with many complexed symbols and characters. I believe this is to prevent fake teammates from trolling after the real one dies. Though some are still imitable, one thing that frustrates me is that they have communication outside the game and there is no way to win over them because they can discuss their strategies while playing.
    Seriously I only tram with my friend in Party mode and I just want to enjoy playing solo in FFA but all those mfkin [AGF] and [VIP] and country tags like [US], [AUS] are like running business and they appear in EVERY SINGLE server I refresh.
    Developers please do something about this! Many of us are losing patience and we’re here to play AGARIO not SURVIVIO.

    Why not respond to the users and actually fix this.

    It’s obvious that many people don’t like teaming in FFA, and there’s a drop down menu to choose game mode, so why not use this to give people the choice?

    Simply have ‘FFA – no teams’ as an option, and tweak the rules in that mode so that any ejected mass can only be picked up by viruses, but not other players (it simply vanishes to nothing quickly).

    This single change would make team play much less lucrative, and I’m sure other methods could be employed to further cut down on team play in a ‘no teams’ mode.

    I don’t know if is permanent, but an hour ago I was playing in experimental mode and suddenly I noted that I was number 1 (I was playing alone without any alliance) for a long time. This made me dude. So I made an alliance with the number 2 and what happened is that any time we splited and fed each other our mass grow down very very fast! So after 10 cicles of “I feed you, you eat, then you feed me”. Our entire mass was 1000 !!! (and not 6000 like our first start)

    I just wanna say, teaming in team mode is not that fun as you can’t give your half mass to your teammates(aka spacebar, and also the reason why there are two or more different colors’ players are teaming in a server). I point this out because people keep saying that if you want teaming, you should go to team mode’s servers. W key is slower than spacebar and also can’t do as much thing as it. Also, when played agar.io just now i found that there are less teams and you will getting smaller when you team with someone,(i know game developers tried to prevent teaming because lots of people complained about it) i felt disappointed cuz it is a bit boring to play in own tho.i think play as team in Asia’s server is fair and fun cuz there are more teams against you :)-(I mean you are not unstoppable in these servers)Anyway, I hope the game developers fix this problem and allow some servers can play as team vs team. This is just my opinion. i hope you guys suggest some solutions about this.

    The people that don’t like teaming in FFA are the ones that don’t take advantage of it or aren’t good at it. I think it’s silly to regulate it. Teams never last forever.

    It seems that agario changes are permanent. Not all the people has noted yet.

    The new rules I think are something like this:

    _ when you give mass using “w” it costs you more than 13 (which is the value of each w-mass), near 20 just I estimated.

    _Split yourself produces a decay of your entire mass. The decay is small if you split once for example, but when you split and split every time the decay is very big (make the proof, start with mass 300 and split all you can, you will finish with 200 mass when you recovery your one-cell form).

    _ The other rules still the same (bigger you are, bigger the decay of your mass. If a virus splits you your mass doesn’t go down. And so on..)

    So with this rules is very difficult to stay an alliance for long. And those who preferd to play alone has an adventage.

    I think it would be nice that agario creates a play mode without this new changes so if you like to make alliances you can in there.

      The last few comments have noticed the same as me; big changes have been made so teaming is not an option. Whether pressing w or space bar you lose too much mass and the team mass shrinks rapidly.
      I started teaming because I would get to No. 1 and then the game would get boring…you move so slow, opportunities to eat other cells are few and far between and it would take so long for the two cells to recombine that a team might find you.
      It is only after reading all the above comments that I realise how most players hate teams (like I used to!)…sorry guys for eating you 😉
      I agree with the comments about the team game – it’s bad because you can’t split to help a team mate. It is also anonymous so when you give loads of mass to a team mate you rarely get anything back.
      I would prefer a solo game with the new measures to make teamplay not a viable option (much better than trying to patrol all the servers and ban people, which is not feasable) and also a game where teamplay with teams of 2 or 3 is possible, like I have been doing for the past few months.

    In china /east asia server its normal to team up with 2/3 friends bcoz its hard to survive without friends in both servers. I hate it when teamers try to eat me so usually i make my own team to fight against the other teams…its quite interesting watching those teams fight against each other ..this is why i like agar.io so much. Recent update doesnt allow us to team up anymore which is quite a bit dissapointing.
    In china/east asia there r some groups exp: [vip] [烎] they hv 15+ members and they usually occupied the whole leaderboard in party mode….they are incredibly strong and some of them use RC to communicate …its sooo hard for us normal teamers to fight with them.
    I think there should be FFA solo and FFA team and normal teamers could play together…
    The existing team mode is so unfair coz there r always 2 colours helping each other.

    It’s true it’s funny to play as a team but in agar.io there is a server for it. We must leave FFA mode at it’s baseline where it a free for all and people ther must show their valor alone. Playing in team ruin the FFA mode part. Because ppl acting as team have no more fear to split up cause they are giving their mass to their partner. and they know their partner will get them bigger right after. No more challenge to try to save their splitting mass. The real fun part of the game is really to be able to get bigger and stay big alone. Without any external help. In my book those one teaming up in FFA mode are only those one not able to do a thing alone.

    And really that start to be damn abusive people are forming now team of 3 and more player to rules the FFA server. Those kind of player are starting to ruin all the funny part of Agar.io on the FFA map where it’s suppose to be a 1 vs all player. ith that kind of game play many play dont stand a chance to succeed in the FFA mode. And mainly those one who believe in the FFA mode. You should set some kind of marker on the mass we are throwing . Like that, a player can only eat it’s own mass and a spike can receive those mass. On that way other player cant not use those mass to get bigger. With such marker you can easily set thing if it’s a team map or solo map. In the team map you put a team marker. People should really use the team server to play as a team and leave the FFA server to those one who like to play alone to proove themself.

    My interest start really to fall down because of those one destroying the FFA mode by teaming up. and i’m sure many other one are in that position.

    There should be a agar game where the “W” is used only to send viruses against bigger cells. The teaming possibility on agar make the game really frustrating and unfair!
    You should defenetly unable the option to send mass to other cells, that’s really why a lot of people stop playing the game because of the frustration and the unfair fight against the people who team.

    Teaming is fucks who have no skill. Let’s be honest here, teamers simply can’t survive and win without aid of others. I’ve fought many teams of 2 and won, but it’s difficult and unfair. 2 v 1. They only reason they win is because they have 2x my mass, but I can win because they have no skill and rely on the other person. I personally GO AFTER teams to get them off the “gene pool”

    To ban teaming would be stupid. After all, all you have to do to beat a team is to become larger than their combined mass, or bigger than just their biggest player and scare them apart. If anyone really tried, they wouldn’t actually have a problem.

    After dealing with this for some time, I believe I have a solution.

    The larger you are, the greater the chance that the mass you eject will be a virus that .

    This would add risk/reward factors to the common practice of having a subordinate spot serve as a shield that can grow and capture for the leader. The leader could not constantly inflate his buddies without risking blowing them up.

    Is so annoying when you get fairly big (let say 1k) and become slower . Than at some point another player , with your same mass stick to you , overlapping , and literally while you try to get away from him , he shots mass at surroinding players begging for mass so he can absorb you , since you and him are so slow and overlapping
    It might be the cheapest and most annoying thing i ever witnessed .
    Just 10 minutes ago , i was literally fighting against 4 people , constantly , everyone giving to this asshole mass so he could overlap me and eat me . At the end after a ridiculous long chase they popped me with a virus and i got eaten

    Well i am no angry since i proved my point
    They where 4 versus 1 and struggled to eat me , everybody ganging up on me , i felt almost bullied

    To solve this problem, you could enable a mode where donating mass is impossible. if you think about it, there is no down-side to this. The only benefit of donating mass is for teaming. You could still send mass to viruses but it could disappear after a few seconds and nobody can pick it up.

    Here’s an idea….why don’t we just make a new part of the code that kicks people that repeatedly eat the same person, regardless of mass exchanged within a certain time frame, label it as ‘ensuring that individuals are not specifically targeted in a form of cyber bullying’, and then let all the teamers rage as they realize that they can’t team.

    I didn’t really have much problem with teaming at first, back when it was mild, the players would slowly feed each other with w, or would position themselves in such a way to shoot viruses to help their partner. It required skill to use such tactics, and it was easily prevented with proper positioning. Now this Split as many times as possible to eat all the people who just spawned and labeling people who ‘were too stupid to get close’, to feed their partner has gotten out of hand. I make it a point now to just blow up or consume all teamers I see on pure proper conduct.

    The most satisfying thing in the world though? I was surrounded by three teamers in FFA all in top ten as was I. They all start to box me in with no way out, their being split in two so that I could not run. Just as they are all about to eat me, my mass reforms fully, I was just large enough to eat all of them. I rule number one position for quite a while after that. For quite a while I was hunted down by all those teamers trying to get revenge. Eventually I got cornered by two of them, and there was absolutely nowhere left to run. I was named BySkillNotPower, the guy who ate me was named ByPowerNotSkill. My point is, teaming is for those people who are not skilled enough to play on their own and try to use sheer force of numbers and cheap tactics to win. Those who play on their own have to worry about so many different factors to survive, while teamers just throw around their mass as their buddy wipes up the mess. Teaming has no place in free for all, by keeping it going you are teaching people to win through mob mentality. If one were to just get rid of the mechanic that lets you to split to feed your buddy, by labeling it as them ‘cyber bullying another player’ then a large part of the problem that stems from teaming would be rid of.

    The reason I use teaming in FFA is because of the feeding yourself to teamate option. If I am popped by a virus, then I can feed my smaller pieces to my teamate. If in Team Mode, mu teamate is unable to eat my smaller peices and they are eaten bu another color. And it’s fun 😉

    I have stopped playing Agar solely because of teaming. It is not fun to work hard to gain mass and then get wiped out by a strategy that I consider cheating, almost every time. In fact, it’s infuriating. Fix this and I would come back.

    Ibrahim, your opening of this topic struck a hopeful note that you were sincere in regards to ending teaming on FFA servers. But it has been five months now since that post.

    Go on any FFA server yourself and you will find at least one set of d-bags teaming. What has been done so far is not anywhere near sufficient to eliminate or even reduce teaming on FFA.

    Fixing the problem takes four things. The first is skill, which judging from implementation of Agar.io, I think you possess. The second is money, which since the game has been monetized, ie IAP and advertising, should be sufficient to solve the problem. The third is time, which should be available since you can hire people to solve the problem. The fourth is motivation to bring about a solution to end teaming.

    Which leaves me asking the question of why hasn’t more been done? I think anyone can say the first 3 items are satisfied. Which leaves us all asking what will it take for the necessary motivation to be found to implement a solution to end teaming in FFA?

    I think teaming is fine. The problem is lag. You can’t defend or destroy these people who actually suck( that is why they team) if there is a bad lag every time you move or try to seven into a virus to blow em up

    It might sound funny but the actual problem is todays society.
    As long as it is rewarding to put your personal gains over others and you totally lack sportsmanship, people and especially kids and teens won’t care at all if their behavior is recklessly ruining the game for others that want to play on their own or don’t have anyone to team up with.
    They feel strong, empowered but apparently they just lack skills. So what’s happening is just a mirror of what mankind is becoming more and more.
    Agario is a brilliant game because of its simplicity and fun and should not be torn apart.
    Team play as such is fine but ONLY on a dedicated server for team play. I hope the Agario developers will come up with a good idea how to ban those players and teach them a lesson in life. They desperately need it!
    Sadly there can’t be hosted sessions where team players are immediately kicked from the game.

    argument is valid but no one actually teams in team mode. I want to make a connection with someone as we go hunting for the leaderboard. Without teaming agario is slow placed. Also without teams there wouldn’t be any lv 100 players and the 500k XP needed just from 99-100 would be nearly impossible without teaming. I play on mobile and thankfully can still team. Will probably quit after the anti teaming penalty gets added over.

    Please fix the teaming problem Ibrahim. Seven months since original post, when will there be an end to teaming? Simple counters to track feeding mass and eating of someone should be simple to code. Once the limit is reached, drop their connection and flag their account and/or ip.

    Let me guess that boys like the prior poster, fore’burg’skin, attempting to justify teaming are likely boys at clubs acting tough with their mates. You can’t stand alone in real life, so why should we expect anything different in a game?

    I personally am giving up on the game because of teams, it is a broken mechanic which leaves non team players with no defence. As soon as a team appears, you are just playing to die. There is no other purpose in playing at that point. Every day for the last 6 days I have went to play and just had the experienced soiled to be honest. Enough is enough for me.

      No they are still under threat if you have fast reactions you can split between their cells and the guy who they are intending to feed all their mass 2, you even stand a chance of killing both of them because the guy accidentally feeds it all to you then you destroy his teammate, done it a few times now feels good too. i don’t have trouble getting to 1st place against teamers in FFA, Experimental or even party sometimes but i can only keep it for about half an hour to an hour and it’s really annoying to have it all taken from you in like 2 – 3 seconds by someone making a load of errors and still killing you (maybe the name Homura Akemi is lucky for me or maybe anime just rules) 😀

    I absolutely hate people who team in free for all (yes hate not dislike) it pisses me off to the maximum because unskilled players can easily defeat a very skilled player

    “oh i can split kill this guy, FFS don’t believe this shiz no i can’t because he’s teaming, FOR GODS SAKE EVERYTIME I TRY TO SPLIT KILL SOME IDIOT COMES AND GIVES HIM A LOAD OF MASS!!!”

    even more annoying is that most of them when they’ve been made more than big enough to kill you still take like 2 seconds about it, “Damn those are some slow reactions you’ve got there how unskilled actually are you scumbag maybe you should reconsider existing on this planet”

    Team in FFA = No skill at all and a huge annoyance to other players

    Other annoyances of mine: Fake Jumbos , Fake Wun Wuns (you’re not Wun Wun or Jumbo so come up with your own name instead of stealing a youtubers’ name the TWT clan and Hero clan (all they ever do is team kill people 1 v 1 they all play very badly). and of course LAG!

    I’m addicted to AGARIO but I’m abandoning the game because of all the teaming up in the FFA mode.
    If they disable the features of people sending mass in the FFA mode and people understand there’s a TEAM MODE FOR FUCKING TEAMING UP, maybe I’ll get back to it in the future.

    I just want to say, teaming and walling have ruined agario. When you use a god mode cheat, you take all the risk out of the game, its fucking boring. thats basically what teaming is, you dont have to care about how small your opponent is you can just eat everyone smaller than you and the feed it to your partner. No skill required. What other multiplayer game has an exploit like this? Its just bad design. I dont understand how teamers enjoy that shit, boring for them, frustrating to everyone else, and it gets to the point where you give up and start teaming and realize the game is broken. I wont explain walling but if youve played a lot you know what i mean, its another exploit of this games bad design, its not fun anymore. I dont think this was the original intent of the game, so i hope you fix it if thats possible, because i cant and wont play this shit anymore. Ban teaming.

    Teaming in FFA sucks. Makes that game-mode no fun, and team-mode sucks as well cause no matter how many times I swap back and forth, there is always 1 dominant team while the two other teams are a slither on the pie chart making your average life around 4-8 seconds. How can anyone enjoy a game when they can only play 4-8 seconds at a time? It’s ridiculous. Heck most of the time I am ate up the moment I spawn in. You just can’t run fast enough. And what’s up with the leaderboard these days? I’ve tested this theory, and lately, every single time you make it within the top 10, you will start randomly stopping dead in the water while everyone else moves around you and lose connection, or you lose connection the moment you enter the top 10… then it instantly comes right back and you’re back starting as a tiny cell again.

    This game was a tad bit fun at first, but it got old pretty quick dying the moment you spawn in.

    How hard is it to fix? Not hard. I played a game called ogame, had lots of cheats. They had voluntary mods who enforced the rules. Catching the cheaters would be easy if there is a way to view the servers. The only questions is lack of motivation.

    FFA is short for “Free For All” which means everyone is for themselves. People who team have an unfair advantage because the other person doesn’t want to team. Teaming in FFA is just annoyingly frustrating. If one wants to team, go to either Teaming, or to a Party. It’s really simple, now if you team stop ruining the game for other solo players.

    Thank you!

    My sweet son introduced me to Agar.io about 4 weeks ago.

    since then I became hooked and have been number 1 on about 8 occasions. Sadly, I very quickly became very very annoyed at the amount of teaming in every room. I used the titles “TEAMING CHEATS!” which just makes it harder for those limp guys that cannot reach the top on their own.

    Sadly, I no longer play the game. Such a shame as for once I found something I love. I try. I log on and immediately see the teams sharing mass with each other. There is no choice bu t to leave.

    Here is a suggestion: Maybe prevent mass sharing altogether, but allow mass ejection at virus? That is one way an alternative game can be developed that makes teaming pointless.

    Teaming is unfair in FFA primarily because the strategies and disadvantages for splitting are removed for teamers. When solo, a split (or multiple splits) leaves the player vulnerable. For teamers, multiple splits do not create the same disadvantage. Secondly, super large cells can split to the maximum and are still so large that players cannot eat nor shoot to defend. A large cell eats the green cells and is unaffected by them from when shot at by a defender. It is virtually impossible for a solo player to defeat a large teaming duo. Agar.io programmers could make one simple change for teamers….make their mass dissipate at a factor much faster burn rate. Punish teamers with a very fast burn rate of mass.
