Question: How do I destroy a planet?


Published: Feb 8, 05:52 AM by: Robert ~ Voidhawk

The Question:

How do you actually destroy a planet? is it by attacking it? this might seem a stupid question but I really don’t know!

The Answer:

To destroy one of your planets:

You can only destroy your own planets. And you can never destroy your home planet unless you delete your entire account.

You cannot destroy a players planet. You might be able to force them into surrendering their account. But that isn’t really fair. Just raid their resources, and give them a chance to build up some more. Then raid them again. :)

A destroyed planet lasts for 24 to 48 hours (varies depending on the server updates).


OGame Tips Strategy Guide

  1. You have to actually click “Delete Planet” also. Make sure to put emphasis on that. Pressing enter just refreshes the page.

  4. Question: Can u capture/colonize a planet with a moon or can u even colonize a moon

  5. jejeje
    Sorry, but it’s funny!

    You can’t capture/colonize a planet with a moon, and you can’t colonize a moon.

    It’s impossible to change your home planet.

    You can ride the colonies, but you CAN’T destroy a planet that is not yours.

  6. Ummmm what about death stars?

    — JediNeo    Feb 19, 10:53 AM    #
  7. You can capture Colony with moon, but instantly when you got it, moon will disappear.

  8. death stars can only destry moons never planets!!

    — jony    Feb 26, 10:35 AM    #
  9. maybe you could destroy a moon with about 10, but you would need alot more to have any chance of destroying a planet

    you can only delete planets that are not your oringinal home planet

  14. im so confused i just built a new colony and i dont see where you click surrender colony plz help me so frustrated :/

    — knightscar    Jun 6, 02:29 AM    #
  15. First of all, if you catch a Colony with more than 200 fields make your home planet and use your principal as another colony.

    Then, you can’t destroy planets, buildings or researchings of other players.

    Can’t coloniz another planet if is that not empty.

    Can’t coloniz a destroyed planet. (24-48h ‘till you can get coloniz it)

    The only way of capture a full fleet is destroying it and get the rubles.

    If you want to delete one of your colonies you should go to overview and click on the name of the planet, (yes, where it’s written “name of planet” – “name of player”)

    After clicking there you can choose 2 opts. one is to give another name to the colony and the other one is to delete it.

    Click on there and then introduce you account password, and then click on the button, don’t push enter or it’ll send you back to the overview.

    So I hope I’d help here.

  16. OK…, how can i make a colony my home planet and use the other one as a colony? Cuz i just got one with 204 fields :D

  17. You can’t ever “officially” change your homeworld, however you can use it as if it were a colony.

    To summerize for the people who can’t stand deciphering people who can’t use proper English grammer, here is what has been said thus far:

    – You can delete only your planets: even if you had 1 million deathstars, all you can do is raid their planet. – You can destroy other players’ moons with Deathstars.

    -If you colonize an empty planet that has (had) a moon, the moon will disappear.

    – You cannot “colonize” a moon. You only get one after having a very very large debris feild. – You are lucky if you find a planet with more than 163 fields. VERY lucky. – You cannot capture another players fleets, ships, structures, moons, or planets.

    I think I’ve covered everything. I hope that answers all questions… ;)

  18. i didn’t bother reading all the stuff above because i’m too lazy. so if this question has been asked. i really don’t care, but will a destroyed planet return for new users or colonization question mark

  20. btw

    YOU-CANT-DESTROY-OTHER-PLANETS-YOU-CAN-ONLY-DESTROY-YOUR-OWN-sheesh its been mentioned 15 times already lol.
    oh and once a planet is deleted, in 24-48 hrs (depending on server) it will be an empty space and left for everyone else to colonise it. and can you change appearance of your planet?

  25. Do all planets always have the same number of fields? Or does the number of fields change whenever the planet is destroyed?

    — KryO    Feb 25, 06:41 PM    #
  26. Um, getting a bit off topic aren’t we guys?

    Yes, you need storage buildings.

    No, planets have different number of fields. It is randomly generated when the colony ship arrives.

  29. can u actually force a player off a colony i know i cant really force them off their homeworld but if there is not enough room for your own colonies? i am new only started a few days ago lol so i have like 4 light fighters not really enough to invade yet lol though im workin on it

    — fonduman    Jun 18, 07:04 PM    #
  30. OK. Here’s my question. (this is all an example)There is a destroyed planet in my system in slot #5 which means the guy who had it before left it cause it was to small (thats the main reason colonies r destroyed) I.E. it had 24 fields (slot 5 planets might have that size so dont BS me k?) I wait till it’s available again and colonize it. Will it have the same size (24 stupid fields) or be way bigger?

    — Grotte    Jun 20, 01:04 PM    #
  31. Ninja and samurai? I think you build an alliance depot on a moon and players send ships there for you to attack with. And no, buildings cannot be destroyed or degraded by an attacking fleet.

    You cannot capture a colony. You can only send a colony ship to a vacant planet to colonize it.

    You cannot force a player off their colony per say, but you can attack until they agree to abandon their colony.

    And Grotte, read the article/other posts before you post a comment!!! But since I’m so nice, I’ll post the answer for other people who are as lazy as you. NO IT WON’T BE THE SAME SIZE!!! IT IS RANDOMELY GENERATED WHEN THE COLONY SHIP ARRIVES!!!

  32. you CAN destory planets ive seen it done with 100k of deathstars in uni 18

    — snifferfrog    Aug 18, 08:48 AM    #
  33. So, say you’ve had a small planet, for some time, just to mine it, then you find another planet with lager fields and you need to get rid of the smaller one. you want to destroy the planet that you’ve been mining, but you have a shite load of defense on the small planet: do you loose all the def, and get back none of the res put into it?

    — New GM    Sep 5, 04:00 PM    #
  34. sorry, snifferfrog. 100k deathstars would cost 500 BILLION metal, 400 BILLION crystal, and 100 BILLION deuterium. Now, supposing you had level 35 metal, crystal, and deuterium mines on all 9 of your colonies, it would take approx. 215 years to mine that much metal, 258 years to mine the crystal, and 107 years for the deuterium. Besides that, production time for 100k deathstars with shipyard 12 and nanite 5 is more than 98 years! The guy who has that many must have been playing for a long time…. Think twice before you put up total crap on these boards!
