1. Population sales on the cash market can no longer be made unless you A) have a positive net cash in the offering country and B) have over 30M peeps. 30M peeps! Positive net cash! A sensible use of the cash market is to offer peeps for gcs, then use the gcs to buy game money to cover the negative net cash. That is now made impossible by (A) and very difficult by (B).

2. Population transfers within an empire are not allowed unless the donor country has over 30M peeps. 30 Million peeps! At this rate, it will be impossible for new players to get even one decent-sized country in their empires (if, indeed, they are able to conquer a country). At least when it was 10M, there was an outer hope of making at least one country fairly large, further exacerbating problem 1.

3. Missing money. Yesterday (August 2274 on FB), I was looking at the Finance index page of one of my countries (Najdorf). I didn't take the time to do a detailed calculation of what my monthly costs were, but it was bounded above by 350B. How did the costs reach 1T?

4. Corporate taxes. Recently it was changed so that you can only raise or lower corporate taxes by 3% per month. I realize that this is put in place to limit abuse by "insider trading," but it also severely limits players who want high taxes when they have low taxes (to discourage CEOs, for instance) or vice versa (e.g. to encourage CEOs). I would like to see at least the option to set a target tax level, even if it can only be changed by 3% per month. This would prevent the abuse, and it would allow players without much time for changing settings to get their tax rates in line with their long term strategy relatively quickly.

I am generally displeased about the new features that make the cash market even more exclusive. This hurts the new players the most. Established players can find ways to make sure they stay in the in crowd, but new registrants will find it much more difficult to do so, even if they know what to do.
