Length is one of the most important elements of Slither.io. The length will determine the size of a snake. It is displayed as a number on the lower left-hand corner. To increase the length, you should eat as much as possible. The food includes pellets which are randomly generated or left when you boost or from the dead snakes. Try to absorb all of them without being killed by bigger snakes! Besides, the length also determines the turning speed and radius. If you are a large snake, your turning speed is slower. And the turning radius is larger. The vision is also affected by the length with the camera zooming out to a certain distance. It will zoom out slowly. Thus, new players have the small vision sometimes even after they eat too much.
Ranking and Leaderboard
The length will be the measure to assess the position that you rank among players on the server. You can imagine of “X of Y Players”. X is the current rank and Y is the total number of players. The leaderboard shows you the current length and the name of the best snakes.
