I play Space Invasion which is quite similar. I was thinking about trying Ogame but Space Invasion was free and I started from there so I decided to keep on playing it...

Maybe I try it when I got myself and my clan wiped off from galaxy :D So far our tactics have been working well and we have lost only one clan member since she could not resist those continuous waves of enemy raids, got bored of it and quitted. There's some things that annoy me in Space Invasion, thou.

How's the teamplay in Ogame? Because in Space Invasion you can't combine armed forces and generally speaking only the strongest member of clan and his fleets are those that counts. Others are just cannon food and not very useful. If our clan, for example, would try to fight strongest player in galaxy he would single handedly slaughter us all even when our common force is better than his... That's because we can't combine our forces well enough in that system. So he got biggest pe... fleet and we can't win him. How's that in Ogame?

Word VT, we played planetarium. And it sucked us in. But we survived to play more expensive, better games. Addictive all the same though.

God Bocom you're out of the way :P You're like forever away from me.

Lol blindsdog :D Come to 36 ;)

Gravehill: Not sure, I'm only a pretty low level at the moment, 4900, Smiley is in the 3500 range. We're both in the OCAU alliance, but I haven't needed to call on them yet. I know we're at war with the G-unit alliance, but I'm not good enough yet to take part. I don't know much about the team/alliance raids/wars/etc.

I recently learned the tech to build colony ships, but not enough res (ganker keeps wiping me out) to build one yet. When I do I'll be colonising a second planet. Smiley is colonising his third tonight. (Rogue World Asylum, Tempus Fugit and I believe his third is going to be Machinae Prime). I haven't decided what to call my second planet. Apex Ultima probably, or Hubnester Inferno.

I just really need to build my fleet back up after I was wiped out. :(

used to play Planetarion back in the day when it was still free. then they started charging for it, and I couldn't be arsed anymore. (i see they have a free version now too... but I disapprove of mixing both free and pay-for-it gameplay :P)

hm, maybe I'll check this out some day.

I'm building mines on Sid Icarus at the moment. I'm using it as mostly a mining planet, but as it's so small, I'll probably take what I need and then nuke it.

Ok kids, those of you on Uni 36, my alliance has said they will accept each of you (we're ranked #7) if you join OCAU (http://forums.overclockers.com.au). As in the forum the alliance is for. You're all welcome to find your own alliances, but I thought I'd make the offer anyway.

OCAU is an overclocking and PC hardware forum based in Australia. That said, there are members from all over the world, and discussions aren't just hardware but games, consoles, as well as "off topic" areas like sports/fitness/health, pets/animals, entertainment/tv/music/movies (we need moar masu fans), food/cooking/booze, etc. There's probably something for everyone there.

So if you're interested, let me know, join OCAU and I'll hook you up, ok? The reason I offer is because you guys are stuck out there in the middle of nowhere, as low ranked and unallianced players, and they are always the first to be raided.

I'm fucking shitty because my boy joined Ogame a few days before me, is rank 2700 and has fuckloads of resources to have a huge fleet and get whatever he fucking wants. While I'm rank 4500 and I can't even get enough res to get a high enough combustion drive to get heavy cargos, let alone cruisers or battleships. Even if I had the res for the combustion drive, my next upgrade is lvl 5, and I need lvl 6, and it'll take me another week to save up the res for that, -then- I wont be able to get the res to build the stupid fucking cargos.

Well, at start you pretty much just get some resource production going. Click on the "Help" button on the left and it will take you to a tutorial, which is always worth going through :). Also look on the Technology button to see all the things and what you need for them.

Blargh, you should come to the Quakenet IRC channel sometime so I could help you a lil more.

Also, which part of the world are you? In the upper corner there is your planet name and a series of numbers after that, I am 2:104:10

I'll add you to my buddylist, Carstuar. Go to 'Buddlylist" on the side panel and pick 'Your Requests' (I think). My name is Baringa.

Best advice I can give you us that your mines are priority #1, defense #2, research #3, fleet #4. The higher those mines go, the more income you get. The more income, the more shit you can afford.

Oh, by the way, there is no down time. This game runs 24/7 whether you're online or not. Learn how to fleet save!

I think you need to actually send the recyclers as a fleet to the location with a debris field.

Title: Re: Ogame
Post by: Carstuar on February 26, 2008, 09:24:10 am
It's pretty addictive. I constantly check if I can build/research something, and send out probes to find inactive planets to raid.
One thing that I find annoying, though, is that all the good planets are taken. (the big ones).

Bocom you build colony ships and send them to a new galaxy. you keep your homeworld for mining and such, but build up a new base in a less populated area. For example, i have several planets in galaxy 5, including my homeworld. I also have 2 planets in galaxy 7 which are being built up to the same standards as my homeworld.

Ferion is complicated, so if you don't have time to learn rules about as complicated as D&D, I wouldn't bother trying :P
