The Scoreboard, also called the Leaderboard, is a miscellaneous feature in Diep.io. It is located at the top right corner of the screen during the gameplay, the scoreboard does not display on the title screen. The scoreboard displays the top 10 players of Survival, Free For All, 2 Teams, and 4 Teams, the number of players on each team in Tag Mode and the Health of the two Motherships of the now defunct Mothership Game Mode. There is no leaderboard in Domination.
The score determines your position on the scoreboard and the Level of your tank. Your score and level are always indicated below in the center of your screen during the gameplay in the score bar, which also displays a bar (color depends on team—default green) which shows your score compared to the top player. In Free For All, 2 Teams, and 4 Teams, your score will be indicated on the scoreboard if it’s high enough. When there are lower then 10 players in the server, like in Sandbox or Survival, the number of bars will be that number of players, say if there are 7 players alive in a Survival server, it will show the 7 players' score compared to the number one player.
Scoreboards by Game Mode
Free For All
In Free For All, the top 10 players are arranged from highest to lowest score. In VERY old versions of Diep.io it was arranged by the number of kills, then it was changed to highest to lowest score (no bars), then the comparison to first bar was added, and then at the right of the comparison bar, the class of that player was added.
In Survival, the scoreboard works exactly like the Free For All scoreboard.
2 Teams and 4 Teams
In the 2 and 4 Teams modes, the top 10 players are arranged from highest to lowest score, no matter what team they are on. The scoring system is the same as Free For All. However, instead of the bar being green, it will be blue and red for 2 teams, and blue, green, red, and purple for 4 teams, depending on what team the player is on.
Domination is the only game mode without a scoreboard.
In the removed Mothership game mode, the health of both Motherships were displayed and were arranged from highest to lowest HP. When both Motherships died, blue would always be shown first as blue was the first color added into the game.
In Tag Mode, the amount of players the four teams have are displayed and arranged from highest to lowest number. If the four teams have the same score, the order will be Blue>Red>Purple>Green, according to what time they were added into the game.
In Sandbox, the scoreboard works exactly like the Free For All scoreboard.
In Maze, the scoreboard works exactly like the Free For All scoreboard.
The leader is number one on the scoreboard. An arrow will show where the leader is, but if the leader is close, the arrow will disappear. The leader themselves also cannot see the arrow. Most leaders are very skilled and often focus more on Tanks instead of Polygons.
- The old Scoreboard had no bars and the score was shown inside the parenthesis after the player’s name. Player Name (Score).
- Domination is the only gamemode without a scoreboard.
- The removed Team DM and Mothership, had its own kind of new player spawning system depending on the scoreboard. New players would spawn on the team with the lowest contribution to the scoreboard. For example, if there are more red team players than blue team players listed on the scoreboard, then new players will spawn on blue team. If Red Team’s Mothership has lower HP than Blue Team’s Mothership, then new players will spawn on Red Team.
- As of August 8th, 2016, the players’ classes now appear on the scoreboard right on the left, near their username.
- When you hover over a player on the Scoreboard, the bar turns brighter.
- In the beginning of a server, you spawn on the leaderboard as the leader until the bar immediately goes down.
- The leader’s tank portrayed on the scoreboard is backwards compared to others. (Left facing)
