The closer you are, the easier it is to pull a guy down, or more specifically, the more likely a guy is receptive to be pulled down. I've never found one farther than 20 miles nor have I been able to pull one down with a OVR over 495.
I don't believe this to be true at all. I pull international players down to my D2 teams all the time and based on your theory, that would be next to impossible since those guys are about as far away as you can get, thus making them, by far, the least receptive to any type of pulldown action. Usually get them with between 8-10 evals (or scouting trips, whatever it's called nowadays).
Maybe at D3 what you're saying is true, I haven't played at that level forever, but I totally disagree with that premise at the D2 level. Plus, I'm talking about a normal D1 to D2 pulldown. Maybe trying to go from D1 to D3 makes your statement accurate, like I said I haven't played D3 for a long time.
