Private servers are back in Agar.io

Hello, Agar.io fans! We hope you’re all enjoying the new update, which contained numerous anti-bot fixes, among other things. Due to the way we’re handling the elimination of bots, every time we notice there’s a presence of bots, we deploy additional measures to eliminate those bots, and keep everyone playing a fair game. A consequence of this is that it makes writing private servers really hard, as we’re constantly changing our protocol.

While we don’t endorse private servers ourselves, we appreciate some of you do use them! So, we’ve decided to disable some of those protocol changes if an IP is specified in the url. This change will allow those private servers to exist and use the official client, while still deterring connections from bots as our servers won’t accept connections without those integrity checks in place.

With this change, we hope that the talented developers who write servers can avoid changing the parts of the protocol that deal with protecting the game against bots. This means we don’t have to change the protocol as often, which makes everybody’s life easier!

If none of this makes any sense to you, don’t worry about it, but if you’re one of the few who enjoys private servers, hopefully this is good news. Thanks as always for playing Agar.io!

  1. Pls Miniclip revive Agarplus! Don´t remove Agarplus this extension don´t only fix the lag bots and helps people who have bad pc to do well the agar!!!!!!

  2. This update has made me completely unable to connect to ANY server. A lot of others are having this problem as well. I might be able to connect once, but if i want to switch servers i will have to wait about 30 mins before i can connect to another one. It doesn’t even say “connecting…”. It just shows the background for agar.io. I have tried clearing cookies, adding things in the url, but nothing has fixed the problem. What is the point of bringing back private servers if i cant connect to any server at all! Please fix this problem as soon as possible! I am completely unable to play! Better yet, put agario back to the way it was before this big new update.

    Sincerely,
    A concerned fan

  3. My friend and I love playing agar.io and teaming up, but in like 10 minutes, whenever we get really big, we disconnect! The lobbies are laggier than ever, they don’t last long enough, and WE WANT BOTS BACK! I honestly wish bots would come back. I don’t care if I even have like 5! The only reason I use bots is for teaming, not for mass. It’s SO hard to find a good teammate on Agar.io that you don’t know. #BringBotsBack. I honestly wish we could have the old agar.io back, from like 3 months ago. These updates are getting worse and worse…
