Hello Diep Community
Today is the day I finally decide to start a weekly series, Captain's Opinion. What this series is based upon is my personal opinions on game modes, shapes, tanks or updates that come to Diep.io. Enjoy!
So this week's topic is... SURVIVAL MODE!!
At first my original opinion of this game mode was negative. Instant deaths and many minutes spent waiting for the game to load was taking it's toll but recently, I started to play some more and it's really quite exciting.
One of my personal favorite ideas about this game mode is the constant XP gain as the match ensues, allowing everyone to upgrade fast and get their builds ready for the final showdown. However this is an extremely fast paced mode that requires some slight Diep skill and going with your gut, especially in risky situations.
Surviving the opening seconds
This is essential in any survival match. As soon as the server opens, my recommendation is to go to the border of the map for fast XP gain because as the arena gets smaller, the polygons start to clump up, making them XP gold mines. Make sure to plan ahead too when considering a build because you'll have to act fast in order to be effective.
The Final Two
Congratulations! you and another player are in a duel to win the server. Be careful though, the arena is really small now so there is no room for mistakes and errors. You need to really dodge bullets like a pro in order to avoid dying and also position your tank so you can hit him with a stray bullet here and there in order to deplete his health until total destruction. Any build or tank is good in this situation if you know how to use them. I've won in all different kinds of tanks from straight bullet spammer such as Auto Gunner and Snipers such as... well Sniper. So it really doesn't matter what tank you have or what tier it is even, you just need to out wit your foe and go in for the kill
So those are my thoughts and tips on Survival Mode but these are only mine. I want to know what you guys think about this edition!
