Hey there. This research was initiated by AshleyWilliams, I'm just providing data.
About the test you're running; I've already done that, and the result is yes, duplicated paths do deviate after picking different skills. However, as far as I remember, specialization choices were exactly the same. Nevertheless, I didn't do much of it, so my conclusions are tentative; you are welcome to give it a shot. More details are in the comments of the page. Be sure to review whatever I could collect for comparison or addition.
I'm logging all the picked and discarded choices at the moment, including duplicates, but I need to do so during levelling, which takes time. About sixty units are pending.
Duplicated troopers are helpful to get an insight how the process works. But the picture is still incomplete. On one hand we have that the path is pre-generated because that's how duplicates are possible in the first place; on the other hand the set changes if taken different paths.
There is no password on your new tank test subject Metal Andy.
