A player is completely different from an AI. First and foremost, unlike an AI ant, they can be controlled by a human, and are the only ones that can dig. A maximum of four players can be on a single team. They are responsible for the architecture of the colony. When a round is about to start, players have the ability to lock the team they are on, and play solo if desired.
At the beginning of the game, players start out as the queen. Right clicking the ground will result in the colony being founded at the current spot the queen is located at. After placing the colony, the official colony begins, and all players now become workers.
Players, from time to time, get hungry, and will need to eat food every 4 minutes. When a Player eats a Super Food (known as "blue food"), their speed will increase by 40% for 90 seconds. Not eating after two minutes of being hungry will result in the controlled ants death.
Players can press the "Ctrl" button, or right click on their ant, to open up a command menu. This menu is important in order to obtain food, attack predators, prey, and other colonies. The command menu is essential, and if not used properly, the probability of dying in-game will increase.
