Back* from the grave



Quote from name:Homepage
OGame is a strategy-game set in space. Thousands of players across the world compete at the same time. In order to play you only need a web browser.
However, this doesn't begin to describe the in-depthness of the game. It's basically a version of the Tycoon-style games where you get resources and build progressively more and better stuff. But since this is competitive and multiplayer, you also get to attack and defend against other empires. Below is a list of its features:


  • User-friendly tutorial, accessible at any time, and grants rewards for completing up to 10 tasks.
  • 4 (counting energy) main resource systems
    • Money-based "5th" resource, though supposedly there are ways to get this resource without paying, outside of one tutorial reward
    • This resource, however, does not greatly effect gameplay in any way
  • Multiple universes, some with unique sets of rules
  • Buddy system and PM system, as well as a Clan feature (called "Alliances")
  • Almost forgot to mention Alliances have customizable member ranking, and the rank system is currently set up to mirror SEN's
  • Infinite numbers of ships, defenses, and many possible strategies
  • Ranking system to see how you stack up against others in your universe
  • Upgradeable mines, research, weapons, armor, and multiple (and upgradeable) energy harvesting methods
  • Muted, eye-appealing graphics. No "cartoon-like" images
  • Entirely browser-based; no downloads, addons, anything (save the images and html itself)
  • Interface is intuitive; everything in the menu is where it would logically be
  • Description of your planet, including temperature range, diameter, and moon(s)
  • Headers representing worlds are unique, though similar:
  • Lasers, Ion Beams, Gauss Cannons, and even an entire universe can be yours. Or you could be a trader. Or even a peaceful overlord. Or...well, you get the point.


NOTE: I'm not advanced enough to be able to list every single aspect of the game, though, so this will likely be updated when I discover new stuff.

As there are many universes, when joining be sure to enter Hydra as your universe, otherwise you might not be able to join the SEN Alliance. I'm not sure if you can join Alliances in other universes, and I don't care much to find out. When you go to register, make sure you have the correct universe, as in this example.

As in all browser-based games, inactives are exploited. Here's a list of known inactives in order of discovery, and I'll cross them off as we completely milk them dry:
List





Finally, because Devlin will have a mini-fit if I don't mention this, just because it says SEN does NOT mean it is SEN-sponsored.

The tutorial broke when I validated my account :stfu:

Forgot to mention you don't have to announce your coordinates in here, I can see them in the Alliance menu. Also, what do you mean it broke?




Feb 2 2011, 8:13 pm OlimarandLouie Post #4



When I validated my account, it logged me out. Now the tutorial has ceased to exist. Guess I'll learn everything the hard way :awesome:

There's a question mark in the top left, above your menu. Click it. Picture coming.

How much time each day does it take to play this without being absolutely useless and killable?



Red classic.

Hmm, I haven't been attacked yet. Generally the higher players ignore you...but I dunno.

Send an application through the Alliance link in OP?

Meh it's pretty much like any other browser based game but If SEN people are doing it I'll join for lul.

The colors make it oddly addicting to me...it's how soothing and peaceful it looks, I guess. Except for the ad, it's all so relaxed and nice ^^

OVERWATCH STATUS GO

So I just accidentally tested it, and I think you do have to be in the same universe. Time to start over in Hydra. :/

And applied.

EDIT:: @poison
lulz. You might find that OGame was actually the most intense browser game I've ever played. :/

lol... ogame... too old school for me :)... my 200,000 strong Battleship and Battlecruiser fleet got ninja'd in 2008 and since then I've been quite happily living a normal life without waking up in cold sweats at 4am when my fleet returns home :).

Enjoy...

I'll be team mascot and adviser... always fleetsave with resources. If possible fleetsave to a debris field. Keep an eye out for players who have moons, and therefore possibly Sensor Phalanx's. Don't turtle. Use speedsim (appears to be down, for me atleast) or another battle calculator.

Still. This universe is young, the strongest player is only 4000 points.
EDIT:: Nope <_< I meant 400k points.

Oh yeah, word of advice. Tech straight to cargo ships. <_<

Great, now I'm going to get addicted to this stuff again. At least until I get wtfpwnd by some massive fleet like last time I played it.
Zycorax 2:290:12

And lol yeah, cargo ship raids early in the game is awesome ^^

Why is this? Oh, and btw, I really, really want two SENners to get together in the same universe. Would make my day.

Also, having the rank of "Member" should allow you to see the member list. Can anyone verify that inside of their Alliance menu they can see something like this?

We (or I) don't see the "online" column. Thats pretty useful. Why can't I see that ;_;

Can't we just migrate to the same galaxy at some point?



None.

You can scoop a lot of resources from defenseless planets. I remember doing it a couple of times once when I started in a fresh universe. It gave you a nice resource boost in the beginning ^^

If I can go into the negatives with energy then whats the catch? Why build energy plants (or w/e they are called)



None.

We could. Though it would hamper progress by a lot. It'd be best wise to migrate if you were under constant attack by a stronger player that you cannot defend yourself from.
