    ready to pour some decent cash. development alone would cost thousands if you don't know what you are doing.

    If you're a programmer then you don't need a budget at all.
    But if you plan on outsourcing, then expect paying at least 200 working hours.

    Agario replica would probably take under 30 hours of development; then it's all about what kind of game you're trying to develop.

    complexity of my game is same as agar.io ofc other designs and a bit other gameplay ... i am more interested in the cost about the Website stuff ( Shop System, serverhandling, serverstructure, servercost ) if i have to pay 100€ Server cost per month for 50 user and 20k euro for Server structure i dont think this is for me :D

    I haven't included server costs in it. Just the development part.
    But unless you are going to host one million players any time soon, then you shouldn't worry about server costs.
    Instead try to figure out how to make your game successful in the long run. Technology isn't a problem these days, but attention is.

    You can host shittons of players for 60€ a month on a dedicated. Then you'll need the guy to make the server work & goes smoothly.

    Well you'll have to make a business plan for all that. How good are you at describing specifications to employees, how good are your employees, what platform do you want to develop it on, what language.

    Everything can go from 1 to 10 if you don't know how to manager a project properly.

    A single skilled man can do that for free if he knows what hes doing. it may cost you 50K if you can't manage the ressources properly.
