As the title says I always try to set up a DB where ‘the elites’ are not dominant and winning everything all the time

 

usually it is FFP[but this doesnt really work as the game generates more money -new sponsorship deals/re finance debts to by pass any penalties]

 

Impose stringent squad rules eg no  non EU players etc and in a few seasons the elites have bought all the best domestic players

 

cut back the prize money it hits the lower clubs more long term

 

so as a test I have been  imposing a 'super rich tax'[ corporation tax]set at 70% for higher earners-lower earners are at 20%

 

so far the results are promising

Man Utd pay this at the end of the 20/21 season all their super sponsorship deals are smashed even when they announce new deals the following season it is swallowed up in tax 

 

now I am going to tweak this and see how capping high end plays out over a few years

 

[ran a quick sim with the top 6 relegated to second tier as punishment for ESL shenanigans and liverpool/city go up straight away but the other 4 are languishing in mid table] so the ‘super tax’ is working

this tax   would be country by country for the 'super tax'

 

I have removed the dirty dozen from UEFA comps and have them in a poorly funded ESL[if I just banned them from UEFA comps they had a weeks rest to prepare for the domestic games- this way they are playing more games for less money and domestic form suffers too👍]

 

 also increased the finances of UEFA comps so after a couple of years with the above measures the 'elites' are reigned back in along with a wage cap for domestic leagues it means the domination is almost over for the 'big 6'

in a 5 year sim so far Liverpool have won 1 title but by a point from Wolves -EPL has been won by Everton, Leicester,Leeds so it seems to be working

 

Swansea were in EPL replacing the relegated 6

think this is a tad high for a team who isnt raking it in so some tweaking is needed would be good to get some other users testing this to see what the results are and then put  the best option in place

my goal is fairness and a level playing field so it isnt the same boring teams over and over at the top, its getting there but it could be better

Here is what I set in the editor

 

nation-england-tax rules

NB as with all editing 0 is the top division and so on[eg EPL is 0, Championship is 1 etc etc]

now there are already  corporation taxes set up initially in the DB- [there are 4 for England so I removed them  and replaced the entries as image 2]

I have still imposed wage caps and squad restrictions but they are hit +miss

 

if you manage a squad [ I just took over a club on squad submission date] it wont let you exceed the wage cap

it stops you from submitting until you are under the amount

 

however I am seeing this from 1 or 2  AI teams, and there is  no punishment that I can see when they do this?

NB also seeing the AI elite clubs offloading several of their top players to counter the lack of 'huge income' and meet the wage cap

next test is to run  corporation taxes in all top nations only tried England/France at this stage, PSG taking an absolute kicking

so looking for other users to try this and then we can tweak the taxing etc to reign the elite in quickly and get a much better game IMO

 

some setting I am using for FFP+ Squad selection 

 

overall squad rules

non  EU 3 players -are limited to the ‘top 6’clubs

annual wage to all clubs

 

match day rules

8 homegrown for all teams

2 non EU again just for' top 6'

 

FFP

over 1 year check period

 

board can only invest £10m [negating the rich sugar daddy owners]

 

also no losses allowed -£10m

Also I added minor individual TV deals to the top 6- 1m a season so the other teams get the below amount- the top 6 nothing due to having own tv deals
