OGame Wiki

An NAP or Non Aggression Pact is an agreement between alliances or between an alliance and a player that states that neither will attack the other. These are enforced only by the alliances and/or players concerned, and are often broken for many reasons.

There has been much debate over the abbreviation 'NAP' as it differs only in one letter to the internet slang term "NAB", similar to noob or newbie.

It is a widely held view in the ogame community that only NABS do Naps as a NAB would have difficulty protecting him or herself.

Many alliances have rules preventing its members from attacking and/or spying on each other. In a way, these can be considered as NAPs, but typically aren't called NAPs. Many people consider that no fighting within an alliance is a good idea and it is discouraged to attack a fellow alliance member.
