One quick question for you -- have you identified or looked for anything that correlates with the development trait? Obviously most people are interested in plucking the "quick" and "superstars" but I just drafted a 78 OVR DB in my recent draft that had "slow" development. Any idea how to identify those players?
I get the feeling that the development trait is mostly random and would perhaps be impossible to know.

Correct. From what I've observed, it's pretty much totally random. The only thing I have noticed is that players with draft story like "missed the season through injury" or "kicked off team" will often have slow development.

But I'll build a differentiation between a positive and negative draft story into the next version I think. Thanks for the input!

RE Open Office, I'm not familiar with how it works TBH or what the differences between Excel and it are. I googled quickly and can see that things like vlookups have a different formula syntax in OO, which would definitely mess things up as the tool uses a lot of lookups. What exactly isn't working properly in Open Office?
Just seems to be stuck on loading and it's not as if it's a huge file. Managed to workaround by uploading it to Google Drive, great tool so far. Exactly the sort of thing I need

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

Thank you so much for this. It's amazing.

Is it weird that I still can't sort, even with the unprotected sheet? I tried Google Sheets and Excel 2007. Am I missing something?

Re: Scouting Tool for Madden 17 CFM

This is incredible!! Too bad I was 7 weeks in to the season before I found it, because it took a chunk of time adding in players.

Not sure how heavily weighted it is in your formula, but something to think about.
This matches a particular draftee for me. This tool listed him immediately as "Do not draft", but he's had about 6 "This guy is amazing and setting records" stories. Late 2nd rounder ROLB: 23 y/o, Power Move B-, Tackle B-, Pursuit C+.

I'm honoured, thank you!

Done my first season in my sim-only Browns CFM, trying to turn them into contenders without playing any games (or cheesing the CPU with unfair trades etc.).

My 2017 draft class. Not too shabby!



Had to give an arm and a leg to trade up from #6 to #1 overall to grab Heisman trophy winning QB Ben Trejo, but it was well worth it. Gave up two first rounders and a top second rounder to bump up 5 slots but I'll take that trade all day long to nab by QB for the next 15 years.

Whiffed on that MLB in round 2 (slow dev to boot), which I was annoyed about. Still, that's an example where the tool isn't perfect.

Got some solid players in the middle rounds, particularly pleased with that Guard in the 6th as he has quick dev too. The tool told me not to draft the SS, but I badly needed depth at the position and he looked pretty solid even if the tool didn't like him.

As much as I appreciate what you've done, I really like that there are still "misses" like your 2nd round MLB. Most of the guys are looking for a sim experience (as I'm sure you are) so it would take a lot of realism out of the experience if we could always guarantee the outcome. I feel like your tool has taken us from the Dogpound (pun attended) and given us Belichick-like scouting abilities. But of course, humans make mistakes and it's good that there will still be misses.
