1. Accounts

The owner of an account is always the owner of the email-address bound the game account.

Each account is entitled to be played by a single player at any time, account sitting being the only exception.

Account exchanges within a single universe must be done with the assistance of a GameOperator and are allowed only once every 15 days. In strict accordance with the T&C the new owner have to change the email-address within the first 12 hours after the account has been switched.

You can contact support at http://support.en.ogame.gameforge.com/


Clarifications

Every account exchange needs to be informed from original owner, tickets from new owners claiming they took it can not be considered.
The only complaints considered will be the ones that come from the owner of a given account's registered email address.
No complaints will be processed in cases where players do not change their e-mail address after an account exchange, inter universe exchange or free account giveaway.

4. Bashing

It is not allowed to attack any given planet or moon, owned by an active player, more than 6 times in a 24 hour period. This rule also applies to moon destruction missions. Probe attacks and interplanetary missile attacks do not count towards the bashing rule.

In specially-designed universes announced on the forum (http://board.en.ogame.gameforge.com/) the bashing rule can be modified or abolished.

Bashing is only allowed when your alliance is at war with another alliance. The war must be announced on the relevant OGame board, in the correct forum and must comply with the board's specific rules.


Clarifications

Attacking fleets that are completely destroyed do not count towards bashing.
All Moon Destruction missions count towards bashing, regardless of the battle or moon destruction outcome.

Bashing Limits for Special Universes:
Universe 30, Jupiter, Nekkar, Vega, Xalynth: 12 times in a single 24 hours period.
Universe 35, Electra and Quantum: 20 times in a single 24 hours period.
Universe Taurus, Ursa, Yakini, Zagadra: 1x fleet speed : 6 times in a single 24 hours period (even if economy speed is 2x, 3x or 4x)
Universe Wasat : 2x fleet speed: 12 times in a single 24 hours period (even if economy speed is 4x)

5. Pushing

It is not allowed for any account to obtain unfair profit out of a lower ranked account in a matter of resources.

Pushing is, but not only limited to, these example: resources sent from a lower ranked account to a higher ranked one with nothing tangible in return.

Trades, recycling help & ACS splits must be completed within 72 hours.

For all exceptions (like bounties) a GameOperator needs to be informed via TicketSystem: http://support.en.ogame.gameforge.com/


Clarifications

After a pushing ban is over resources must be sent back to the player who pushed your account or otherwise returned as arranged with your GameOperator.

  • Trades that mean an unfair profit to the higher ranked player by falling outside the following range of ratios will be considered as Pushing cases:
    3:2:1 Where each unit of deuterium is worth 2 units of crystal or 3 units of metal.
    2:1:1 Where each unit of deuterium is worth 1 unit of crystal or 2 units of metal.
    These trade rates are valid for all universes at ogame.org.

  • Recycling Help and ACS Splits: It is recommended to notify a GameOperator while the lower ranked player transports resources to the higher ranked one. ACS split can be done as players want while all involved contributed.

  • Bounties/Headhunts: must be approved by a GameOperator before they happen and can only be paid for after the conditions of the bounty/headhunt have been fulfilled.

  • Note: If You expectedly or unexpectedly receive resources from a lower ranked player, you cannot keep them. Any pushing case will apply 72 hours after the resources are obtained. Within this time, the resources should be sent back to the player pushing you or an appropriate GameOperator should be contacted to arrange a solution.
