These are some great ideas and very simply to implement.
I like bringing back the emassy rule and add more rules for it. Actually the whole alliance thing need to be improve and be more benifitable.
Also, I think showing the hero gear no the front page of home village is important. And it will be more usefull if they add any notification to the troops building when the training helmet is active.
That is kind of you, thank you. Embassy is desperately in need of help I agree.
