It would seem apparent that water drop rates are now around one third of the drop rates for food.
I recollect them being around equal over the time I've been playing this game.
The current alliance task is set at 2,500 water per member.
Usually players with a dmu are able to make up the shortfall for players without a dmu for the tasks that require food or water but in these present circumstances the picture doesn't look so rosy.
When lower level members are barely in a position to provide water for themselves with no excess to donate and higher level players have their ability to find water reduced to one third, is this the beginning of a new era of unachievable tasks?
