I agree I see no correlation in all my teams between Formation IQ and Player attributes. In fact I've run a season or two with no formation IQ practice opther than special teams and Find that the growth isn't that much more for player attributes its like 1 point or no difference but the Loss of IQ didn't affect me in a negative way.
Formation IQ doesn't change player attributes directly. Instead, it's a modifer to attributed during the game simulation. The previous developer (whose information has proven to be suspect, at times) said it was a maximum of +/- 5%.
So for a player with a score of 75 on whatever stat, formation IQ would figure in somewhere along +/- 3.75 points.
For a player with a score of 40, that modifier becomes +/- 2.00
At least that's how I understand it - and if true, it means practicing formations at D3 or D2 is a total waste of time.
