Another simple suggestion to fix the scouting system in FM

Firstly can SI provide clarity as to what scouts actually factor into account when providing their opinion on potential ability?

Secondly, if this isn't already the case - can the under the hood PA simply not be one of these factors? Wouldn't it be possible to use a formula - (which then also factors in scouting error) - based on current ability vs age (where he is in a perceived development curve), various attitudes like determination/professionalism etc, form and then a higher weighting towards physical attributes and more "natural" attributes that are harder to teach therefore indicating higher potential.

So in essence the in-game prediction of Potential is not at all linked with the under the hood PA value.

 

This would then fix the issue that is currently present that high PA players are too easy to spot.

 

CA/PA suggestion on top of this could be a solution to the "late bloomer" problem. What if there was a cap on CA development based on training facilities and league reputation and then once players broke this cap or made it to the higher leagues - would see a rapid improvement even past the 25yo development cap?

Well that's good to hear - I disagree that the weightings on each part of my suggestion are correct then because players often are ordinary or behind others in terms of development at 16-17 but have 5 star potential and others have 3 stars. The 5 stars are almost always better than the 3 stars. In real life im sure there are plenty of 3 stars who come out as better players in the end. This doesn't happen enough in FM.

SO if what you're saying is correct the accuracy of reports needs to contain more error than it does currently so that what we are told is a 3 star prospect more often will actually become a 5 star player and a 5 star prospect will more often become just a 3 star player to add to the randomness of the game
