Make the taxes more realistic.

I have 26M right now. I have to pay 15% tonight = 4M
If I throw away 1M right now I will pay 10% taxes = 2.5M

That is ridiculous!

Just buy a few sets of equipment...  ;)

But true, could be improved. Don't know if it's hard to program though.

Been suggested before to use the "progressive"tax system with boxes. Which would be something like this:

For someone with 15 million:
First 10million: 0% tax = 10,000,000 * 0% = €0
10-20 million:  10% tax = 5,000,000 * 10% = €500,000
Total €500,000

Someone with 55 million:
First 10million: 0% tax = 10,000,000 * 0% = €0
10-20 million:  10% tax = 10,000,000 * 10% = €1,000,000
20-30 million:  20% tax = 10,000,000 * 20% = €2,000,000
30-40 million:  40% tax = 10,000,000 * 40% = €4,000,000
40-50 million:  50% tax = 10,000,000 * 50% = €5,000,000
50+million: 60% tax = 5,000,000 * 60% = 3,000,000
Total: €15,000,000 tax.

Even the tax office (at least in Australia) doesn't make the calculation so hard Sjiz. Don't know how Oska has done the formula in the game, however, it may be as simple as what I had suggested (a simple -70k, -370k, etc addin to the formula).

Interesting, perhaps my explaining is bad :p. Its just using brackets and not the total amount to calculate tax. You fill up one bracket en everything above that gets taxed a little more. How big you make the brackets is up to osca.

Actually it is not very complicated, and exists in many countries today (including US). It is called "Progessive taxation", and it is aimed at creating a fair(er) taxation system when:
a. - you want people with more money to pay a higher % (and this is currently the case in CFF), and...
b. - ...to avoid un-fair treatment for those who are in the situation described by Telamon (juts over the limit of the higher taxation bracket)

It is really not that difficult if you take a minute to understand it:
Telamon has 26.000.000:
for the first 1.000.000 - 0%=0 tax
for the 1.000.000  - 10.000.000 tax is 7%:this is 9.000.000 * 7% = 630.000
for 10.000.000  - 25.000.000 tax is 10%: this is 15.000.000 * 10% = 1.500.000
for 25.000.000 - 26.000.000 tax is 15%: this is 1.000.000 * 15% = 150.000
Total tax: 2.280.000

He wouldn't need to do the "tax evasion" by throwing away 1.000.000, because that would only save him 150.000.

Or maybe Osca wants people to throw money away. I am not sure what the fiscal policy of CFF is :D

The explanation is spot on, and is exactly what it is.  Just when it's calculated, they say

>$25m to $50m = $2,130k + 15c for every dollar over $25m.  Essentially, all of the progressive rates before that level is pre-calculated.

In a formula, depending on how Oska wrote the taxation up, a simple reverse addon would do the same.
eg >$25m to $50m = 15% minus $1.62m

Another suggestion: make achievements for NT managers who win their NT competition.

I wanted to add to the taxes discussion...I fell into this very predicament as the end of Season 36.  After having sold most of my Team and after the final race, I was just over 25,000,000 Euros.  As such, I would have been taxed at the 15% rate for the entire amount (approx. 3.768 million Euros).  To "evade" this additional 5% tax, I purchased equipment for 140,000 Euros, bringing me to just under 25,000,000 Euros.  I was now only taxed at the 10% rate (approx. 2.5 million Euros).  In effect, by wasting 140,000 Euros on equipment I did not need after the season ended, I saved myself 1.268 million Euros.

Maybe it pays to be an accountant    ;D

Maybe this have been suggested before, but I think the nation team calender never should have 2 TT-races. At least not in the same category. This is the second year in a row, where I notice it is two flat tt-races, and this is hitting the smaller nations even harder than already their lack of cyclist is. Meaning, larger differences between nations, and lower morale for smaller nations to actually care. Not a good thing.

True, I second that.

Always we have one in every speciality and one random, maybe this year and past we have TT, other time flat cobbles or hills, all cyclists same opportunities.

Its okay to have one random, but this possiblity should not include a TT.

Why? Because, then tactics have nothing to say, and its almost always the big nations that get the adventage and wins on this.
Example: Last year Norway had no chance scoring any point in the TTs as tactics had nothing to say, and its a small nation. Well, that is crack on the motivation for NT-managers of smaller nations. As not 1 TT in itself is punishment enough, you risk two, not a good thing.
What does it lead to? Less motivated players for the smaller national team
Meaning more? Less motivation for players from smaller nations in general.

This is in fact important, well, if recruitment outside huge nation is something that is valued of course.

I can't agree more! This season I took over Estonia's u23 side and it seems a huge challenge to select 9 decent riders for each stage so when in comes to a field like TT it becomes even harder.....I had the same feeling coaching Portuguese national teams on here so the issue remains with "small" countries on here but anyway we'll trying to do our best and keep competing :)

P.D: Where are the Mountain TT at senior level? We haven't had any in the last seasons and one of my riders is craving for it  ;) :P

In the Spanish forum, there's a suggestion to either make all promoted cyclists 19 or 19-20 years of age (the suggestion regurgitates itself regularly).
I would agree with the all 19-20 option (at existing comparative ratios).  However I'd also have half as many promotions, so it'd be 1 promoted per day, plus 3 scouted per week (Tues-Thur-Sat); that way it wouldn't affect cyclist depth.

Do not reset stores revenue at the end of the season; base it on the last 118 races
For example, today stores revenue would be based on results from race 28 of last season till race 27 this season

In the List of Favourites, also show Age and (maybe) Medals.
