    Hello, this thread is to explain the new "Private Matchmaking ID" EA has added to NHL 17. The goal here is to make an private number that 2 teams can use to match up vs each other. Only players in the game will be able to see this number.


    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This new 6 digit code is generated by 3 sets of numbers to make it unique.
    An example of a number is 84 08 40, The numbers come from

    • The 2 digit LG League ID. This is the ID for the league in the LG Database, example LGHL = 37, CHL = 39, LGHL PSN AHL=68.
    • The Team Index of the home team. We get this number by sorting the standings by team name, if you are the Winnipeg Jets you are 30.
    • The game number in the season. IE games 1-82 (for most NHL leagues)
    We display the number with a space to help you remember it, when you enter the number of course, remove all spaces.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Update is live as of now, here is a quick video of how to set up the pin system:


    By LG McDonald



    "From the EASHL Club Menu, go to "Play Drop In"


    "Next step would be Group Matchmaking"


    "Once the team captain selections his or her position, the PIN can be entered by selecting the "Y" button"

    Those of you not familiar from the group match making screen, you can invite your party to the game session OR have your players join off your name"

    Brodie has it as the following in his thread on the LGHL forums:

    LGID, Home Team, Away Team...

    I'm assuming we will be following the @Tris10 way though because you have it set up on the site already the way you described it in this thread. Just looking for clarification
