Question: What does "Multi-alarm" mean?


Published: Jul 17, 05:42 AM by: Robert ~ Voidhawk

The Question:

I’m trying to send my friend some deutrium so he can get nanites but it says “multi alarm fleet cannot approach”. What does that mean?

The Answer:

Multi-Alarm means that you and your friend are using (or have used in the past 24 hours or so) the same IP address.

This can be caused by sharing a computer to play OGame, or if you both have two computers on the same internet connection (like a broadband connection at home with multiple computers.

My suggested course of action is to contact a GO and find out what is causing this. Sometimes they will have you change a few settings. Sometimes they make one person start a new account in a new universe.

Turning of the IP-Check just because you want to can get you into trouble. Please contact a GO before doing this.

Please do not discuss methods of getting around the multi-playing. Not only will you get banned in oGame, but you will also get banned from posting comments here at OGame Tips.
