Spinning news stories in the game has been significantly modified.
Here’s a screen shot.
The player and issue the story is about look similar. The first number in a circle is the ‘Coverage extent’ (it used to be called ‘Profile’). The second number is ‘Coverage slant’ (used to be called ‘Spin’), and the third number is the news story’s Power (extent x slant).
Players now have 3 different options, Spin, Neutralize, or Flip.
Spin has the greatest chance of succeeding, and changes extent and slant by 1 (up or down depending on whether the story is about you or another player).
Neutralize has less chance of succeeding, and sends the story to 0 slant and ends the story.
Flip has the least chance of succeeding, and send the story to +1 slant.
Players now allocate Spin Points (SPs) to increase the chance of their action succeeding. The number of SPs a player has per day are based on their Spin Strength.
