All players have their OVR calculated with a new algorithm so existing players will likely have slightly different OVR after this update
New: Scouting Update!
Added 250+ College Teams - all undrafted rookies now have a College. Each College has a Region you can deploy Scouts to
Added 12 unique Scouts to each league that each team can choose to hire using Team Points and deploy to college Regions to scout undrafted rookies
NOTE: Old scouting system is totally gone. Team Points spent on old scouting have been refunded if the league is in a week before the draft.
Special "Media" scout provides 50% accurate scouting reports to all teams for free
Scouting Reports are delivered by Scouts that you hire each week, to review undrafted rookies with more accuracy and detail than the media
Scouts have a Confidence % which means that % of reports they generate are accurate and true. The rest may be inaccurate!
Undrafted player Culture is unavailable from Media scouting reports. Need to deploy a hired scout to determine Culture.
Consistency is no longer avialable before player's OVR is revealed, but may be hinted at in Scouting Reports
Combine Results appear Week 25 with results from 8 scouting combine events for all undrafted players! These give a clue to a player's Physical attributes
Mock Drafts are updated every 4 weeks until the draft! Based on Media scouting reports
Updated draft logic to be more realistic
Added Sim Scouting option to Team Options - Automatically adjust Scouting assignments to regions
NOTE: More Scouting report Summary text is planned for future updates

Leagues are starting to get big in terms of data storage! Due to this, creating new leagues now requires email verification

New: Defensive Playbooks! Blitzing!
All teams now have a Defensive Playbook which determines how often to blitz
Blitzing is high risk, high reward: it grants the defense a higher chance for a big play (sack, INT), but it could also mean a big play for the offense if they are able to react!
Added Halftime Adjustments for Blitz Rate
Reduced rate of INT TDs (pick-6)
Balance changes to prevent coaches from getting too OP
All leagues maximum culture impact changed to +3 if they were previously over +3
All coaches culture impact changed: +5 or more -> +3...... +3 or +4 -> +2...... +1 or +2 -> +1
New leagues default culture impact is now +1 instead of +3
Negative culture impact is now always only -1
At the end of the season, caches must now get at least 10 wins to go from +1 to +2 CUL boost, and 12 wins to go from +2 to +3 CUL boost
At the end of the season, coaches must now get at least 8 wins to maintain +2 CUL boost, and at least 10 wins to maintain +3 CUL boost
