    This thread is how to take stats for all PS4 NHL Leagues using EA NHL 17.

    At the time of this posting there are 1 serious issue out of our control that everyone should be aware of
    • People on a 720p TV: I am having trouble with screen shots from people using this resolution as the detail is too fuzzy and i get a lot of mixed results using the OCR
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How To Take Stats

    1. Prerequisite & Setup
    Before your game, these are things to make sure are working
    1. Make sure your Leaguegaming "PS4 GamerTag" is linked to the correct gamertag (under external accounts) you played your LG game with.
    2. Make sure your psn account is connected to your twitter account
    3. Make sure you are either signed up for the LG game (either unconfirmed or confirmed) using the signup system.

    2. After Game

    (If your game is disconnected, follow the instructions of 2b. listed down below)

    Once a game is over a member from the winning team is required to take 4 screen shots from their PS4 and upload them to twitter. You must add a your own custom hashtag so you can search for them in the OCR.

    We recommend #LGHLTeamName. Replace teamname with your teamname. example #LGHLLeafs for the Maple Leafs, #LGHLBlackhawks ect. For the AHL use "#LGAHL" and CHL use "#LGCHL". The hashtag is important is its what we will search for.

    For NHL 17 we need 5 screen shots, they are:

    1. Team Stats - Example.
    2. Period Stats - Example.

    For Player stats, we use the new NHL 17 player stats screen that has gamertags and all 12 players on a single screen shot. We require 2 images here to get all stats.

    3. Player stats (scroll so PIM is highlighted) - Example.
    4. Player stats (scroll so FO% is highlighted) - Example.

    Tips for taking screen shots -
    • Do not take a screen shot with any screen overlays over any part of the stats, ie notification popups.
    • Do not take a screen shot with your twitch on the right side.
    • Do not upload the screen shots from your phone or computer. I've coded it so we will only accept screen shots uploaded directly from PS4.
    If there is any blockage of the stats table the OCR will not be able to find where to start , or what stats are for what columns.
    3. Using the OCR (optical character recognition) on Leaguegaming.com

    Now that the game is over a member from the winning team (or team manager) can use the OCR to do stats, to do so goto
    1. The League the game is for (LGHL PSN or LGAHL PSN, or LGCHL PSNP)
    2. Hover "My LG" > Input Score > Select the game
    Once in the "OCR", follow the steps outlined.


    The 1st step is for the old player name system, if your screen shots are from the new NHL 17 stat system, skip this step.

    The 2rd step is to search for images by the hash tag in which you uploaded them to., select the image(s) by clicking on them and selecting the type of image its for (Team Stats, or Period Stats or User Stats ect).

    Last step is submit and save the game stats.
    4. Manual Stats Corrections by Team Managers

    If for whatever reason the OCR does not include a player, or adds an extra digit or does an 8 instead of a zero for example, its up to the managers to manually edit and correct game stats. They can do so by viewing the game, and there is a link at the bottom of the game to edit stats.

    2b. If a game is disconnected

    If a game requires any type of restart, simply take the 4 screen shots to capture the state of the game at that point. Then when the game is over after the restart, take the other 4 screen shots. In the OCR you can create a partition where you simply select which set of screen shots or for what periods played.


    Examples
    Here is a video of how to use the OCR from NHL 16, the process is basically exactly the same except we use the new NHL 17 menu for screen shots.


    If you have any questions, please post below and we'll update this document.

    Thank you[/MEDIA][/INDENT]

    If that's true we need to report that to ea. But you would do 2b and do stats the nhl 16 way with player names.

    I reported this issue to EA within the first week. I have a case number.
    The only resolution I was offered was to be provided with a link to the web forum to publicly discuss the issue.
    Meaning they are aware and don't seem to care about the issue, from my standpoint at least.

    It's because you are playing early. I look for tweets after the scheduled game time

    @Tris10 So what do we do with the shots? I noticed as today was the first time I tried to enter stats mainly because teams aren't playing preseason.. But the new player stats page shows "Shots" as every attempted shot by any given player in a game whether it is on net or not. And the team stats page ONLY registers shot on goal. What do we do in this situation as I am getting the error "Shots do not add up between teams"? Do we adjust the overall shots in the game? as there is no way to distinguish who's shots didn't actually go on net...

    That's not always the case. We had guys showing 5 and 3 shots in the player summary page last night, when they actually recorded 7 and 5 shots (respectively).

    What I ended up doing last night was grabbing a screenshot of our team stats section, attaching it to the game, and adjusting the numbers manually.

    I don't have twitterI will just take the necessary stats with pictures on my phone, and then manually put them in immediately after the game.
