This wiki has gone through a unique history and level of development unusual for its size. Though most source material has been deleted or otherwise lost to time, itʼs worth writing down the crazy times weʼve had and the amazing things weʼve built over the past four years. What follows is a summary to the best of my ability of the ʼs history.
In May 2016, a random guy made the wiki. He left forever. Then Zathus and some other people came but weren’t able to ban any vandals and it was a complete mess, until finally one or two months later Zathus got admin, and then bureaucrat. Everything was great in those halcyon days, and we kinda just vibed and no one gave a shit about running the wiki. But then, in October, a new guy came along. Their na…

One of the core features of Diep.io is the ability to customize individual aspects of each tank, beyond the premade classes. One can upgrade health and body damage to ram enemy players, or bullet damage and reload to become a hurricane of death. However, just how many different builds are there? It's a difficult question to answer, with seemingly endless configurations of 33 points into 8 different stats. However, there is an elegant way to calculate it formulaically through mathematics. In this blog post, I'll explain this method in detail, and why it works. Note, however, that this method assumes knowledge of basic algebra, utilizing polynomials and exponents.
There isn't an easy way to simulate the ways to pick stats with typical grade-lev…Read more >
Many have wondered about just where the name “Diep.io” comes from, as “Diep” is a seemingly random word with no clear meaning, unlike other games such as Agar.io (agar is used to cultivate biological growths like the blobs in-game). Some have theorized it originates from the during World War II, given that tanks were a key part in it. But why would the developer name a game about polygons and circles shooting each other primarily after a failed Allied invasion?
However, there is an alternative and more likely explanation, and it has to do with the history of the game itself — or more specifically, its roots in a classic Flash game: , released in 2011 and followed up with a sequel shortly after. This simple game featured a basic tank who had t…Read more >
As you can see, I am back making Wiki Updates! There's tons to cover this week as far as events and tech news goes — the 6DIIep restyling project is close to completion, and there's plenty to discuss theme-wise! We also had an April Fool's joke this year, mainly due to main page "changes", 's craaaZY theme and the rise of that malignant and deluded , who thought he could SIMPLY RISE TO POWER and EXPEL ME AND MY BOT WHILE CAUSING WIKI-WIDE CHAOS AND IGNORING URSUUL, ZATHSU, ME, PATRIK, DRONEDES…
Erm, anyway, there's tons of news … dig in!• • • }} Read more >
2017 has been an eventful year for the diep.io community. This community is what we’ve picked up after the rise and fall of 2016
into dramatic fire and brimstone, and we hope this time it doesn’t collapse like it did before. So far, the Diep.io Conception Wiki was merged with this one, the Staff system received some major overhauls, and it’s been a great year all around. From a seemingly hopeless state at the beginning of the year, we have grown and expanded our community and content, and our wiki is filled with activity!
Not only that, diep is finally alive again! Zeach has updated the game for the first time in forever, adding a new tank called the Rocketeer, a tank that shoots Machine Gun Missiles. The Skimmer has been reworked to shoot F…Read more >
