Eat Your Own Tail!

Eat Your Own Tail!


Today i tried an counter intuitive strategy, so far I’ve only been beaten by my own greed, not by being outplayed or being out numbered, I’ve never been encircled and constricted, reached 60k multiple times;

  1. get top 15 mass (I know, it isn’t a full strategy, it is end game strategy)
  2. get to the middle
  3. eat your own tail, while doing this make an as big as possible circle
  4. patience
  5. if something close by dies eat it, but don’t go that far that you break formation, don’t take risks, we are playing the long game
  6. more patience

Generally the middle is devoid of big players; the turnover is just to great for most to get big. Eating your own tail means you can’t be cut off by small fry because you are protected by your own tail. you can’t get bad luck and run into 4 small fry with no way to escape because you couldn’t see far enough, you always have your own fate in hand.

the downside is; it is really, really, REALLY slow, you’ll see snakes die next to you and you have to let them go because you don’t want to be break formation, remember, you are in the center with a whole lot of small fry, breaking formation is the only way you can lose

the troll-side is; snakes will spawn within you….sucks for them because opening up for them is dangerous and they are not worth constricting, they have to die to you anyway if they want to restart.

Why can’t you get encircled? technically you can, it just doesn’t happen, first because like i said, the middle is very devoid of big players because the chance to die is just too high. Secondly if they try to encircle you they open them selves up to being cut of by small fry; they have to press themselves against you to constrict you, but to do that they have no escape from anyone to the outside, when they do try this is when you get to eat most; close encircling death is easy to eat with no risk and no need to break formation

why the middle? there is food there; and since it is a slow strategy all little bits help. secondly; there is the most death here, eat 10% of a dead snake here and there and it will add up.

How much of your own tail do you eat? i haven’t figured it out yet; of course you don’t want to eat to much; since your circle will get smaller and can get encircled, you don’t want to eat to little because it give you little space to eat around you without breaking formation

    Just an update: It’s almost impossible to “eat your own tail” (circle for more than about 15 minutes a time), even without mods/extensions since about September of 2016. I’m not sure if the ppl in control at have deliberately done this as a way to prevent “legendary circlers” such as “Someone”, “Dat Snake”, and the like from circling to like 5 million mass/length.

    This is what happens, if you’re brave enough to circle for more than 10 to 15 minutes. Without warning, and with nothing to do with lags/glitches, your snake/worm will break the circle formation and go off in a different direction in a straight line for at least 5 seconds; most of the time, in the middle of the map, this proves deadly as it makes you a sitting duck to get killed. I’ve tried to work out exactly how and why this phenomenon happens, and all I can think is either it’s a deliberate move on the part of Slither to try and keep the “artificial/bot” scoring down, or Slither just has not updated its game in a long time. If anyone would like to contact the people that run and ask about this bizarre happening, feel free to.

    I will test out what happens more over the next few days and report back to you all.

      you’re waiting others to act instead of acting, thats why. its a safe method, but as you might already know, safe is almost never as fast as non-safe

  2. people didn’t read how to do it, they thought you download it and it does it for you.
