Right now scouting is only really used to get accurate stats of the players, and no matter how good or bad the scout is he always
gets the players attributes exactly
right. It's ridiculous. The guy doesn't even have to watch the player any more than a day or two, just ask for a report twice and you're done. Of course he might get the player's potential wrong or get wrong info about the hidden characteristics of the player, but it's still way too accurate for a report made in a single day.
As a fan of the simulation side of the game I'd really like to see something to be done with scouting to make it more realistic and tougher to find the hidden gems.
