Much better IMO
Lets also make AI offense and AI support, give things different stats, make them play each other, make a gambling site and make millions off people betting against this.
u could make a site and pretend like its not yours, film yourself winning money and promote the site to dumb minors like gigipopper. then get arrested. just like that tmartin guy with csgolotto

Hum... I'm not nearly as qualified as Boom or NA zhl level players to question the usefulness of Z steal, but à bout that whole "it's great for def / it's terrible for def / it's useless... Can't you just pull out the stats from previous seasons ? I know the teams aren't the same ans players might have improved between them but still :

- if stealing really helps def, you should see an increase in the number of goals made as a whole during the last season (by taking out the extreme 10-0 or so from totally unba games). The opposite result would mean it's favorable to offense.
- if there is only a small difference, it probably means its impact is marginal.

This might be a stupid comment since teams change each season, but assuming you take out the totally unba games or teams, I think it might work ? Would at least clarify if there is indeed a difference between NA ans EU when it comes to using Z steal effectively.

This would not be accurate at all since teams change, new players come in, some players don't sign up, some players change position, different goalie, different attendance and a bunch of other stuff.

Why does krazy have any say in anything and why is he not banned yet for juicing?
