I'd like to ask the reverse question in a couple of ways. First, I had the 0 ADV concept explained to me. You learn to make projections on your own. The growth of players is predictable enough.
Now, I'm just starting my second season. In my first season I ran with the minimum allowed ADV, 6 million. At 6 million I quickly realized that the projections were already ludicrous. Like a 26 year old player, currently 65, projected to 76 - impossible. This season I cut it right down to 2 million and the projections are only marginally more stupid.
The point being - These are only projections, right? How much is the system programmed to overestimate, underestimate, or even lie to you? Is there a dollar value at which Advance Scouting becomes fully reliable at all? And has anyone played at that value, and gained a competitive advantage by doing so?
