I've seen this one plenty before "- Very hard to stop inside - sky's the limit."

However, I don't think I've seen it worded like this before, "- Has nothing inside unless he beats his defender off the dribble - sky's the limit."


Is the wording something new?  Is this what they are spending time on improving/changing?

Oh, these messages are for the same player, but different trips

That seems weird and contradictory to each other...I know I rarely read the first part of those messages and just look to see what the second part says when doing SV...maybe a case where what the first part says doesn't matter you just need to pay attention to the second part to find out if he's high/high or low/high

The first part has to do with current ability, so it's weird that you got two different messages for the same player. Nonetheless, definitely high-high.

Which is why I rarely pay attention to the first part...I see the rating, I know his current ability...I want to know what he's gonna be haha

This message is nothing new. Its been around just like all the other potential messages.

High/High.  I have seen this particular msg several times in rebuild situations.  I have seen it more for guards than for big men, but then I rarely recruit big men with less than 45 LP (ballpark, each situation is different), but when I have, I have gotten this msg from time to time.

Any time it says "skys the limit" it's high/high for LP.

he must be on the borderline of good and ******, in the sim's eyes. kind of silly but as others have said, both indicate high/high for lp. the assistant's impression of what makes a rating good is absolutely worthless anyway, so i dont think its a big deal, but i agree its weird and doesnt make much sense. i suppose then, it fits nicely with the other responses we get from recruits?

Yeah, I knew the sky's the limit was high/high.  I just never really noticed that there were different wordings based on the level of the recruit's current abilities. 

Thanks, guys.  I was wrong, the messages were about two different guys.  I double checked by clicking on the envelope next to the recruits name on the recruiting page.  Well, I must have clicked through too many times because the second message was for another guy I recruited.

Very hard to stop inside......64 starting value

Has nothing inside unless he beats his defender off the dribble.......10 starting value

I guess I just don't pay attention closely when the attribute is that low.
