1. How do people get huge talents from this?
2 I personally feel it boosts youth academy players potential. Is it true or I'm just deceiving myself?

I think that on very rare occasion you can get a 16-17 years old youth academy player with relatively high potential, otherwise you get some supporters, which doesn't have much impact.
I've never got a youth academy player "via" U17 tournament, so I rarely organize that event, but it might be worth it if you get a player.

Hello,

1- It's totally random.
I don't know if you are aware, but if you click on the title of an event, you can see the whole historic of this event organized by all the clubs of the game.
https://www.virtuafoot.com/#events?type=4
And I've just browsed 10 pages (with 10 events per page), and only 2 talented juniors were found by this way.
https://www.virtuafoot.com/#formation?fid=551702 - 17 yo - potential 71
https://www.virtuafoot.com/#formation?fid=552762 - 16 yo - potential 79
So, the chance to find a junior, from this little sample, is 2%.

2- As said before by Andre Malles, when you don't find a talented junior, you win some supporters.
From my little sample, between 350 and 475.
(it's kinda expensive, in this case)

To resume, it's like a lottery.

Player detection has proven to be a much safer option right now. Even than the scout method

Unfortunately, you're kinda right :/
At the beginning, when the U17 tournament appears in the game, it was a disguised help for beginners. Clubs with little facilities had more chance to find a really good junior. (and the player could be sold to finance facilities)
But with many cheaters that have created multi-accounts just to find this player, and even some used scripts, the U17 Tournament have turned now in a total lottery, and the junior found isn't good as in the past.

Detection is a good option, if you can "waste" time.
And you can sign many juniors (max 16) in 1 season.

Scout method is still good, but it really depends on your youth scout skills.

By the way, for me, the big advantage of the detection is that the junior have a fixed potential, no surprise chan you promote him.
And the junior found by the youth scout need to play to increase the chance to promote him with a certain potential. But even with 80/20%, you can have "bad" surprise.
