    Exciting news, we finally have the single biggest feature we've all been waiting for, a direct API to EA Sports for stats. This means no fumbling with screen shots, OCR, twitter or your phone to prove stats. This also means managers no longer will need to correct stats or spend hours fixing and managing their organisations stats.

    This API is for both Xbox One and PS4, and we'll support it for every LG NHL league Team league we do including
    • LGHL/LGAHL/LGCHL
    • Pro Series
    • CanAm
    • Friday Night Puck
    • IHL & LGWJ
    • And any other supported LG League
    This is the killer LG Feature we've all been waiting for.

    There is still some manual input as this API doesn't give us everything we have today, Rather then losing these stats we decided to make those stats manual, So manual stat input is this
    • Team Time on Attack
    • Team Power Play Goals & Attempts
    • Goals by Period
    Everything else we get from the API.

    How it works is simple, the user selects the LG Game, then types in the "EA Sports Club" their LG game was played on, That brings up a list of the last 5 games that EA Sports Club played. The user simply needs to select which EA Sports Game is connected to the LG Game.

    Here is a full demo


    There are a few things to consider though
    • We can only get stats from Club Challenge, Not the match making PIN System
    • It takes roughly 30-50 minutes after the game to show up on the API
    • We can only see a teams last 5 games right now, meaning if they play all night in club challenge we might not be able to get stats for that game
    Here is a list of the benefits
    • Makes being a manager in LG much easier, less work
    • IF we remove the OCR input, we could move all stat entry away from managers so that only BOG could manage stats and we never have to worry about stats being padded
    • 100% accuracy
    • We could do things like team records, season achieves now, now that players wont accidentally be given 1000 goals for a single game by accident ect.
    We will still support the OCR going forward while we test out the API but going forward this should really help our community and grow LG to new levels,

    If your game does not show up in the API, please read this thread

    I mean our challenge DR wouldn't let us enter at all. Then we had to go on a different club and it eventually wouldn't allow us to enter that challenge DR either. During proseries we joined 3 different clubs because we couldn't get 6 members into the dressing room. The game would freeze upon clicking challenge DR.

    You know what that still equals? Unexpected headaches and delays.

    Watch the video,

    It will display the "EA Sports Games", and you select the first game as periods 1-1, then the 2nd game for periods 2-3 ect. And LG will sum it all together for you

    I hope EA is probably looking to solve those club challenge issues.

    now if we can just get the bidding fixed like 95% of the owners want then we would really have the best of everything

    @Tris10 When you did the disconnect part of the video of Period 1 to Period 1 then Period 2 to Period 3. If a goalie DCs in say the 2nd would it be handled like Period 1 to Period 2 and Period 2 to Period 3?
