OGame Alliance

Postby vrek » Fri Feb 01, 2008 1:40 am UTC

I have been getting back into ogame. I made a [xkcd] alliance in Universe 34. I welcome anyone here to join me. It is very weak(I just made it) but hopefully with more members it will get much better. When you request membership just put your fora name in the message so I know you are from xkcd.

[Edit]
by the way a I should probably include a link http://ogame.org Fixed sorry

Just started Ogame, just applied for membership to the alliance. I'm a complete newb at this game, but it looks like the sort of thing I'd enjoy.

Alright, first question from the newb: Is this game based on European numbering? As in 2.000 means two thousand, not a very precise measurement of two(which would be 2,000)? If so, I have a LONG time to wait to be able to build some things...

Also, since my metal and crystal production is SO slow, can I just close the browser and know that it will continue to produce all day? Kind of like how an iPod's internal clock keeps going even while the power is off? The Superbowl is later, see, and Randall and I have plans to be stealing cars, so I can't really sit and watch my crystals grow.

Heh, I'm currently ranked 40-ish in uni 35 with about 2 million points :) It's a miner account, though, so I guess I could start a raider account in uni 34 and see how it goes.

Okay, I've joined under the name Emmerich. I'll go ahead and apply to the xkcd alliance.

Oh, and if that guy can attack you now, while you're still in newb protection, that means he's still a newb himself. In other words, if you play well, you should be able to crush him in a few weeks since he's almost new himself :D

And yes, mine production continues while you are offline. But also, people can attack you while you are offline, so be careful.

Basically I'm going to be screwed if that happens. No fleet, no defense, next to no resources, don't know how to defend, so yeah. I'll just hope no one has any interest in a planet formed four hours ago.

all member requests have been approved. You will find I am a REALLY lax leader so if you want a fancy title, or a special power with in the alliance just ask and I will most likely grant it. If I don't respond here IM me on AIM or come into the AIM chat(only Akira bites and they only really soft and rarely make you bleed).

Okay, I've finally gotten around to applying. Name's Emmerich.

To those worrying about being attacked, don't sweat it. Nobody in their right mind will raid you until you have >10k res at the very least, and most won't even bother until you have ships to crash. So take it easy for now :wink:

Depends on your playing style. If you mostly build buildings (especially mines), you don't need to spend that much time. Maybe 15 minutes to half an hour per day at the very least. If you want to attack other people, you'll probably playing upwards of an hour per day. Of course, if you do attack people you will gain resources and points much faster than mines can give you (except very high level mines).

XKCD finally found OGame? I used to play this, like, a year ago. Then i quit and started playing AstroEmpires, which is like OGame, but better. Then i quit AE because it was consuming my life.

I won't be joining. It would qualify as a relapse for me.

I assume so, to send a message, you have got to go to your messages link and then type in the name of the person that you want to send the message to. This does not sound that bad, but you can't just click on a person and send it to them.

Edit: This is wrong. Sorry.

Okay, to answer a few questions:

Can we send messages to each other in the game? Im thinking we could coordinate raids and stuff later on.
Yes you can send messages. At this point, you have to locate the person you want to send a message to, either by using the "search" function, or by finding them in the statistics. After you have found them, you click on the little paper icon and write your message.
I assume so, to send a message, you have got to go to your messages link and then type in the name of the person that you want to send the message to.
No, this doesn't work. You have to find them in the game and click on the little paper icon.

Communication would be a lot easier if whoever's in charge of the alliance made the "member list" and "send circular message" functions available on the alliance page. Circular messages allow you to send a message to everyone in the alliance at the same time, and the member list shows you everyone who's in the alliance, who's online, what their points are, and allows you to message them directly from there.

As for attacking targets together, yes you can do that, although for now I wouldn't worry about it. Wait until we have serious fleets, which will probably be a while.

Ok, if i want to do defense, what kind of setup should i use. Right now i only have enough junk to do rocket launchers, but i'm lookin for the long term.
Right now if you need defense just build a few Rocket Launchers. Building too much defense at this stage will slow your growth, unless you're being raided constantly without it.

In the long run, I tend to build a defense on each planet of about:
2000 to 5000 Rocket Launchers
2000 to 5000 Light Lasers
400 Heavy Lasers
200 Gauss Cannons
50-100 Plasmas
50-60 Anti-Ballistic Missles

I tend to have this defense once I reach a million points or so, so don't worry about it for now.

Some people would call that a lot, some would call it too little, but I find it works pretty well so long as there isn't much else to make the planet an attractive target.

Why can't I build a shipyard? I can't find it anywhere in the buildings menu, or research, or anywhere. Is there something I need to do or have first?
You need Robotics Factory lvl 2 to build a shipyard. Before you can build small cargoes and raid, though, you will also need to build a research lab and research energy tech lvl 1 followed by combustion drive lvl 2 and computer tech lvl 1.

Azrael001's advice about the technology link is a good one to follow, in general.
