Agar.io - private server resurrection!
Tuesday, 24 May 2016
Agar.io died a little bit the day Miniclip disabled player-made private servers. The official servers are fine enough but what Agar.io player doesn't want to just play with friends once in a while, seriously?
The game's Party Mode made it possible to play on the same server as your friends, but also hundreds of other people trying to do the same. I shouldn't need to tell you that's more than a little irritating when you want to play the game on a smaller scale than what Miniclip is willing to allow on their own servers.
There hadn't been an option for people who just wanted to play with a smaller group since private servers got cut. No wandering to small servers to play, no making your own just for your group of friends--and on the official servers bots were running rampant.
As of yesterday Miniclip removed the restriction on private servers, allowing players to once again make servers instead of just relying on the official ones. This is great! But all those servers that were killed when they disabled private servers are probably not going to come back.
It's time for Agar.io players to start building up their own private servers once more! Miniclip have not only enabled the ability for players to make their own servers again but they have also improved the official servers' bot protection. It's nice to get free mass from swarming bots, but not so great when you realize one guy has dozens of bots swarming towards him for free food. Thanks cheaters.
This is all great news if you were getting tired of playing FFA on the official servers amidst a bunch of teamers and bots.
