    Depends on when you did the restart, in that case you would do
    periods 1-2
    then the next game is
    periods 3-3

    @Tris10

    I tested it out and noticed a few issues.

    The first and more important issue is the club search feature might need a little work. Using the following game: http://www.leaguegaming.com/forums/.../league&action=league&page=game&gameid=424232

    The clubs involved were "LG Red Wings" and "Man Overboard."

    [​IMG]

    Searching for Man OverBoard returned the expected results:

    [​IMG]

    I searched for LG Red Wings and got a bunch of results, but not the club necessary to do stats:

    [​IMG]

    So, what this suggests is that the search might only be able to be done by a single word (in the cases of the two searches I did, it searched for "Man" and "LG" rather than the full search terms?). I am not sure if there is any way you can either expand searches to multiple words or display more results. If not, every club will need a unique 1-word name to ensure that searching for their club yields a result.

    An additional question tied to this: Does the search differentiate between PS4/Xbox teams?

    The second and less important issue is that the stats EA stores are the ones from the player summary screen. The player summary screen consistently gets player shot totals wrong. This is something on their end they would need to fix.

    No words, freaking incredible.

    So basically we would have to use club challenges forever and no more drops?

    This system is really great, and as far as stat entry goes will save us alot of things to do post game. But, club challenge was in fact a disaster to start the season out. We will not be saving time using this system the way the challenge dr is now. Plus, waiting 30mins after a game to search up the game also adds to the time commitment.

    I do not want to complain about a great new feature, but the pin system being way more reliable plus the accuracy the ocr now has.....I'm not so sure this will make management easier. The capability that we have to automate this is a big step, but the fact it's only searchable by club is a bummer.

    Majority of Xbox has continued to use CC even when the pin system came out. There hasn't been issues in awhile taht I've experienced

    @Tris10 this is fantastic.

    One suggestion for a future enhancement by EA: GUID for each game or partial game played. That way you don't need to search and they could drop the 5 game limit if they want, they could store stats going back 30 days per club.

    Users get a screenshot in the Dressing Room, where the GUID would be displayed. If they need to combine multiple games due to disconnects, they just grab the GUID's at each restart.

    Sweet feature @Tris10. Hopefully they've improved the club challenge system so we don't run into the same issues we had before.

    This would be up to the API. It only gives us the last 5 games so far

    Great in theory. Not so great if it doesnt work and nobody took screenshots.
