Online Help - Scouting
The scouting screen is where you can view the list of scouts in Neutral Zone. You can hire and fire scouts from this screen, view a scouts details, extend a scouts contract or use your scout for various jobs.
Your scout can be your most valuble member of personel as a team with a good scout has more of an inside track on the information within Neutral Zone. Your scout is mostly used to find a players potential ablility. The more accurate a scout is at predicting a players potential, the more you will gain from it. However, your scout can be used to do many other jobs such as analysing your next opponents gameplan, comparing team strengths, predicting what the weather will be like on game day and giving you his predicted order in the draft.
A scouts salary will count towards your salary cap, therefore you have to make a choice. Do you go with the high priced scout and eat up cap room, go with a lower priced scout who may not be accurate, or have no scout at all and rely on your own judgement when signing players.
You can also hire more than one scout, and use all of your scouts to try and work out the actual value of a players potential.
