Default 'Bounty' for poms + ad buf?!

As we all know, all routes have a additional way to gain score besides stealing land/collecting seeds. Most of the routes exploid bounty for this, a few routes enable themselves stealing other peoples units via bribes, whereas a few others are abel to kill and increase their own staff depending on what/how much they killed. However, the pom route lacks such an ability (unless you get a p-unit ofc).
Isn't there a possible 'bounty'like thing to be created for the poms route? Such as getting 1-3% bounty of the distracted staff (preffably a low % since you distract all 3 ticks), BUT only get bounty from staff that is able of killing poms. This will prevent people from constantly rushing prot vd for free money or TLing rpg for example.


Also can we get a buf on poms, I know they had one this round but they still suuuuuuuuuuck, perhaps in return reduce their HD a bit.
18 mil poms unable to distract 8 mil bikers. sure we want a anti pom route.
30 mil poms unable to distract 8 mil rpg, 2 mil snipers, 1,5 mil shocks and 1 mil humvee. Say wha? Thats just bollucks!

True, if we ad but poms (again) they might be to good against bikers once again, so you could give a few units an AD boost against poms (for example bikers, sorcerers and maybe more) liek dragons had an HP bonus against dragons not to long ago

Just thinking out loud, call me an idiot if you like I'll prob ignore it though

I kinda like the idea of some form of bounty for poms, but at the same time it's a ridiculously powerful route, and the sacrifice you make for that power is not being able to kill/bounty. Can taking away the downside that counterbalances the awesome points of PoMs really be justified?

Also, I don't think PoMs need an AD buff. They wipe the floor with health units and flak on a ridiculous scale, they can't be made to be awesome against everything.

I'm sceptical of this claim. Other than the humvees.

If you can't block that with that amount of POM... your doing it wrong....
POM have Hypno which is a briber unit, so i dont see why you should add another form of bounty to the POM route.

You would be creating cash out of nothing. All the other ways require the loss of stuff. YOu could so easy just keepattacking same ppl over and over just to earn bounty.

Agreed with above. PoM should have weaknesses, I don't personally see any reason to buffer them any more.
Plus, all bribing staff are P-units besides Zombies and Political Bribers - And neither of them scream "DANGER" at me...

I'll be honest, I am surprised at how much armour Officers must have!

What ratio would you expect POMs to get on Officers?

[range] 500,000 allied Political Mastermind attacked, distracting 5,272,048 hostile staff.
[range] 184,135 hostile Officer attacked, killing 348,530 allied staff.

The only lethals I was attacking were 750k officers, so I distracted 565,865 of them. That's a ratio of 1:1.1! Quite shocking in my opinion. But then POMs seem to be having a good time stopping flak (1:10) so I can't really complain
