Hello,

As many alliances, we got the visit of some spies time by time. Most of the time they got spotted rapidly. So what are your strategies to discover spies in your alliance ?

This is what I found out by now to be the general characteristics of an alliance spy. You have 2 kinds of spies : the sleeping agent and the very active perfect soldier.

Here some general characteristics according to me:
* they are always very obeing and quite polite
* they play in war and attack quite good
* they have an experience above their current level (they have other accounts)
* they say that they are not a spy (serious..we got one that ensured us that he wasn't a spy without asking him if he was a spy..he left and took his co-leader grade in his group back after 5min)
* they ask about tactics, strategies, etc
* they don't care about integrating the alliance seriously
* they are quite discrete and don't want to be in the spotlight

Now, I know that this can be the stereotype of any player, but you rapidly sense that a player has some weird behavior. In most cases, it confirms our initial thought as he was a spy in the end.

Any other remarks on this from the community ? Any funny stories about Dominations' spies ?

If an alliance goes through the trouble of sending spies and managing that feedback loop in a game...then I'm just going to let them do it simply to commend their efforts lol.

We often have visitors who help out in a war or with advice. I don't think they would get anything from spying, lol. Just keep my eye on the poachers. I don't like poaching.

Ha ha, too late Vix, I am the leader of the North Korean Army. Your war bases have been compromised. Your tactic of hitting opposites will be countered. :).
But on a serious note. Alliance should not be worried about spying, however they should be more concerned about sabotage. Nothing hurts you more than filling your bases with foot soldiers and Saboteurs.

Do war base troops really matter though? Like, does anyone not use sabotage on the TC to prevent the spawn?

If they don't cause any harm to your alliance and just pop by to learn about strategies and tactics, what's stopping them? I don't mind if they come and help in a few wars. And even if it's a current war against the alliance they are from, knowing how we arrange targets won't help them much in any way either. They still got to hit and clear the same targets even with this intel.

But if they come and try to poach members or donate raiders to war bases, it's a different story.

British don't have to sab the TC if all they have placed is howies and archers.

Raiders are actually quite good on defence. They have good hp and dps and most importantly fast to chase down attackers.

Except for poaching and putting bad troops in bases, or seems like a awful lot of effort with very little gain. Anyone with that amount of time on their hands really should find other hobbies.

I hear stamp collecting is making a comeback.
