This is an idea for lazy people who want the game to do all the work for them.
If you want to plunder res build a horsey nuke, 500 horses gets you 36k res.
If you want to plunder favour build some divine envoys, I know they suck for everything else but they rip off favour just like any other myth, I lost 290 favour because somebody had the idea to send a load of them at me with other units and I had to dodge. Now I'm not complaining about that, in fact I applaud the fact he thought about what he was doing.
Perhaps other folks should try doing the same instead of wanting everything handed on a plate to them.
