    Well if you knew there was a spy but didnt know who and the alliance leader that the spy is working for shows you evidence they do have a spy then here is what i tend to do .

    Send a message to every alliance member titled 'MM - important' or something like that with information that will need to be passed on (like an attack on the alliance ) , but when sending it , send then individually to each member with a unique difference.

    once done , challenge the leader the spy works for and say they have no proof , when they copy and paste the MM you 'just sent' you can see who it is sending the information across

    hope it helped

    hmm,

    this idea will take up alot of time and effort..
    In most alliances everyone gets to know each other..

    The leader could make friends which each people make them feel unique and then just 'Pretend' to share some 'serect' info which each player..
    and then see which piece of info was leaked :o

    But in you telling them serectly, they will heopfuly not tell other Teammates.. this will also tell you not who to trust lol xD
    beware i cba doing all that work, it would take a lonnnnnggg time!

    -------------
    i just thought the True members might feel backstabbed if they found out what has been done, tell em it was to rid of a spy (once you got rid of him/her)

    false targets. MM the whole alliance asking them all to fake someone and that real attacks have been organised and are on there way. you then scout the target and if they're got a ridiculous amount of defence then you know you've got a spy.

    next bit is set each individual person/account that you suspect of being a spy a specific target from the alliance that is spying. ie. zero a village or crop lock or something like that. usually the spy probably wont do this as well why would they attack there own alliance.

    ermm if all else fails. just quit and hurl insults about before you go
