Here's a question I need answered pretty quickly: If you have sent scouting trips to a guy who you need to pull down, do you need to send ten scouting trips and the scholly in order to pull him down or just the remaining number left to get to ten scouting trips total.

For example, if I sent a guy four trips first, can I now send him six and the scholly, or does it still need to be ten?

Thanks!

There is no magic number for pulldowns...I've pulled kids down with as few as 3 SV's and a schollie or as many as 23 SV's before he finally came down. Each kid is different, so pick a number you feel comfortable sending and then add the scholarship and see what happens.

From my experience, there is no perfect number required to pulldown a player. 10 SVs just works most of the time, so that's what most people use. Therefore, if 10 is all it takes for the player you want...it shouldn't matter if you split the SVs up between different cycles.

So ten isn't even always needed, it's just become a common and safe practice?

This is what I was hoping/thinking, just asked in case I heard a bunch of answers on the other side.

Did you receive a backup message? If so, there are isn't a golden number of trips to pull down.

I've found that your prestige has an impact on how many trips it takes as well. If you are a lower prestige it can sometimes take up to 20 or more to pull a guy down whereas Ive never had to use more than 10 as an A or A+ and only rarely as an A-.
