Let's push information about DR onto this page.
The game is not nearly transparent enough as it comes to some of its inner workings. How many newbies do you think have queued up an attack on a fat country, hit that attack button, only to get 50 acres and complete befuddlement?
Players should also be informed of the 10% random factor here, and be warned about defensive allies.
I have suggested to either add it to the information you get from a spy op or create a new spy op called "News spy" that shows both the news and then shows the DR and C:C DR that country is in.
I am very much against giving that info out for free tho, I rather have it as something you have to spend a turn for.
I happen to also think that an op "Spy on country news" and perhaps "Spy on intelligence centers" would be a very important change for the alliance server and other clan servers in which a lot of previous and present conflict is derived from rumours about FA being sent or hostile spy ops being used to mess both with people who want a fair war and/or people who are netting. This would create hard facts out of rumours and would increase the power of spy ops for intelligence gathering, which is really what I think they should be for.
