OGame Wiki

The officer recruitment screen backdrop from Universe 42

OGame offers 4 officers and a commander, each available for a fee of Dark Matter. The officers are located at the Officers Recruitment located on the left menu in the bottom (in gold colour).

Some players are strongly against the implementation of officers - some to the extent that they will attack relentlessly if they discover that a player is using an officer (as much as the bashing rule permits). Some anti-officer alliances have also been formed with the lone purpose of attacking officer users. Some people have even created tools to help detect officers. Though it is almost impossible to detect if someone is using any officers at all.



Main article: Commander

The Commander-position has established itself in modern warfare. Because of the simplified command structure, instructions can be handled faster. With Commander you are able to overview your entire empire! This allows you to develop structures that bring you one step closer to your enemy.
