You need to split the maximum amount of times, and be larger than the green spiky things to be able to eat them. You need like 10k mass total at least to do this
because you are split the maximum amount of times, the green things wont pop you
Yeah if you split 16 times, then you will not be split by the green things.
what you do is you have to go through a bomb first then you need to be bigger than the bomb then you eat it
When you split on them without the max amout of cells, you'll still gain the mass of the virus you split on though.
Yes, this seems to be a glitch. Right now, people who're logged in on FB can easily eat viruses on experimental. I don't know yet why the mechanic on FFA works differently, though. Even though I was logged in, I got busted.
On the plus side, people who can eat viruses cannot split, so they're easier to evade. :)
ETA from above: Okay, so the glitch has been fixed for newly spawned cells. However, I feel it's kind of unfair that some people have other abilities than others. There's no way you can catch the very big virus eaters right now. :( I wish all servers would be reset to allow for equal chances of everyone.
That would be cool, but what if you were the big guy then you would have to reset
