Scouting: Specific Roles Explained

  • Specific Role = Goalkeeper (GK)
  • Specific Role = Right Wing-Back (RWB)
  • Specific Role = Right Back (RB)
  • Specific Role = Center Back (CB)
  • Specific Role = Left Back (LB)
  • Specific Role = Left Wing-Back (LWB)
  • Specific Role = Central Defensive Midfielder (CDM)
  • Specific Role = Center Midfielder (CM)
  • Specific Role = Right Midfielder (RM)
  • Specific Role = Left Midfielder (LM)
  • Specific Role = Central Attacking Midfielder (CAM)
  • Specific Role = Right Winger (RW)
  • Specific Role = Left Winger (LW)
  • Specific Role = Right Forward (RF)
  • Specific Role = Center Forward (CF)
  • Specific Role = Left Forward (LF)
  • Specific Role = Striker (ST)
  • If the Scout has any specific Role, there will be a 100% probability that at least one player from Scouting will have the same specific Role. So, if the Scout has a Defender Role and Center Back Specific Role, at least one player from Scouting will be a Center Back. As a result, a Scouting from that Scout with Overall Knowledge from 90 to 99, which only returns one player, will be a Center Back.
  • All the Players from Scouting will have the same Role as the Scout’s Role. A Scout with a Defender Role and Center Back Specific Role, for example, will only find defenders in the Scouting process.
  • The first Player found in the Scouting, where the Scout Specific Role (if any) is applied, will always have the Scout Specific Role.
  • For the rest of the Players, the probability will depend only on the Scout Role, according to the tables below.
  • Why can a Scout only find Players from the same Role?
  • Is there any negative impact from this choice?
  • Is there any logic behind these values?
  • How will Scout improvements impact the Specific Role probabilities?
