    Also, some of you may be aware that there is a 'draft guide' out there. If I see evidence of people using this draft guide, and I will be going through these picks team by team and comparing after the fact, I will boot you on the spot.

    Not to seem like im cheating or anything but how will you determine who is cheating with a draft guide and who just scouted well? I purchased the Double scouting points early on with my coach points and i was able to scout every area of need by the end of the offseason and then extra. Atleast scout their grade levels on key stats, not unlocking the big xp ones like Development or clutch and all that.

    As did I, and there is a limit to how much can be scouted even then. I have had the bonus since week 7.

    The big one is development.

    Even the best scouts will miss around 40-50% of the time on a good day. It will be pretty obvious who is using the guide

    Right. And i didnt scout development so i was able to scout key traits for almost every position, and i pretty much know all of them because of scouting however i did not unlock ANY development traits. I didnt want it to look like i was cheating just because i was able to scout some guys with high physical talent.

    Yeah I scouted my positions of need very well and have a fews guys pegged as "superstar" development without actually scouting the development trait. This is just knowledge I've gained from doing a handful of drafts in solo online CCM. I hope I don't get punished for just knowing what to look for when drafting these guys.

    I second that, I even got a pointer from someone here and used awareness as my guide.

    As alluded to, the awareness rating can give away Superstar and Quick development, along with some other ratings. Of course once in a while they bust, but normally a guy with B awareness is Superstar or Quick, just like the B intangible guys are going to be able to play right away.

    I always scout speed first, then awareness. Speed and acceleration costs way too much to increase so they are a priority for my rookies.

    I never said all superstar/quick players have high awareness. I just said most high awareness players have superstar/quick development.

    Don't know why Madden won't just ditch the "potential/development" trait. Shit's lame an not a true attribute you can scout. Performance based, in right "scheme" should optimize players performance.

    AWR has zero influence on FB's. I had the' highest rated FB and watched him miss a shit ton of blocks. I'm not feeling the AWR trait at all actually. In my other league my center went down, inserted a bum with like a 30 AWR, he does fine. Madden has no logic for block assignments/blitz scheme. That's why douche's can nano and shake blitz, when it's really a simple pick up.

    I agree, there were games where my FB picked up his block as designed and other games where he was a complete dumbass. Its almost like penalties, a random chance to be a complete eff up.
