Hanusch 16:12:37, 15.12.21 Once scouted, a goalie is basically useless forever and this is not very realistic.

Yes and no. Sometimes when you know the weak spot exactly, it didn't work. How I know? I lost the WC bronze because of it. Also once Finland lost at semi-finals to GB, who doesn't have a manager at all (all lines, tactics was untouched since WC start and they won Silver, the manager probably never know what happened, because after that, his account got removed to bit heaven)

But there is also stories, where the weak spot is common knowledge and make the goalie almost useless to use, because of it.

The problem is for one off games random is still random.

If knowing the weak spot helps 70% of the time, there is still 30% chance it won't. Even in playoff series, it's only 2 of 3.

and concerning the original post: skating (let's say speed in the case of this game) is by far not important enough.

in real life hits and skating are somewhat countering each other

Today is already the second Saturday of January. Will there be no special jerseys awarded this month?

the goal is to make those least used options make more sense / be available



If that really is the goal, why not alter what player profiles make up each tactic? For example, behind the net tactic could easily use blue liners or creative defenders. The idea would be to add extra player profiles where it makes sense. That would change the tactic usage % quite a bit if you make the least used ones more inclusive.

Some examples I've seen that can arguably make sense:

Behind the Net:
Defenders = creative & blue liner & offensive
Centers = creative & playmaker

Short Passes:
Wingers = creative & speedy
Defenders = creative & speedy (maybe offensive & blue liner as well)

Shots from the Blue Line:
Centers = Sniper & Creative & Playmaker
Defenders = Blue Liner & Offensive (maybe)
