Survivor is a special minigame room on Transformice. The objective of survivor is for the shaman to kill all the mice whilst the mice try and survive. Currently, maps are being accepted for the minigame. This room is available on the English, Russian, Brazilian, Turkish and Kongregate servers.
The shaman will attempt to kill the mice using his creativity, brutality and objects available to them. Most maps to do not include cheese or a mouse-hole. The bot Holzinatwo runs the minigame and one mouse is selected as shaman. If the shaman kills all the mice, he/she will be shaman again on the next turn. However, if they die or are unsuccessful in killing all the mice then one of the surviving mice will become shaman. Most shamans resort to using the cannonball.
Hugging is a technique used by some mice in order to survive. Mice stay extremely close to the shaman so that they cannot be cannoned without the shaman running the risk of killing themselves. This technique is frowned upon by many players and often results in vote-bans.
Survivorstat is another bot found in survivor. It records how many mice have been killed in a round or how long it takes for all the mice to be killed. Survivorstat also keeps track of players achievements in the room. You can find them out by typing /w survivorstat stats nameOfPlayer .
Besides, you can also check the survivor status of the whole server by typing /w survivorstat stats .
Totems are also commonly used in Survivor to make killing or blocking easier for Shamans. Blocking totems are used to put up a quick blockade. Blocking is used to prevent mice from being cannoned into hard to reach or higher areas of the map. The most often used totem is a cannon totem. It usually consists of multiple cannons used to kill a large number of mice at once. Cannon totems may also incorporate boxes to kill mice who are wall jumping. The totem isn't popular in the room and often results in insults being thrown at the shaman. If used effectively, cannon totems can kill most, if not all, the mice.
Some totems like the anvil god or most other gods will result in a ban. Not all of the gods have to come from a totem they can be made in game. Some gods you can not be banned for, like the cannon orbit. This is a set of 4 or 5 cannons connectedto a ball by C or v nails, then the ball has a rotating world nail in the center of it.This totem is looked down apon, because it gennerly kills most of the mice on screan in a few secconds. But this totem some times "losses" a cannon, kills the sham, does not work because of the small space, or the cannons.stops.working becauseto many cannons broke off(to fix this just add more cannons). Other totems.thata can be used are a mass of falling iteams like boards or anvils, a cannon god (see totem usage), or a mass of spining invsable long board used to trow other iteams. (If you haveany questions about gods ask a mod, if you have questions about the cannon orbit ask llandshark on the EN server)
There are a number of glitches which an occur whilst playing in the room. The spirit glitch commonly occurs due to the increased use of spirit. Glitches which cause the shaman or mice to become invisible are also a regular occurrence. However, forcing one's self to become invisible is a ban-able offence.
