I've had my doubts about whether chemistry mattered but now I finally think it does. This guy wasn't exactly brilliant but I definitely wasn't 12 goals better than him. His team rating was 86 but his chem was 53. His players were clumsy and sloppy and gave away 3 penalties.

    Chemistry means nothing IMO. Some swear by it, but I've won Div 1 and Draft countless times using teams around 80 chem

    @Fletch only problem is that one thing has abolutely nothing to do with the other

    If a player is worse than you, you win no matter what (unless you have the ocasional game where you have 20:1 shots and lose 1:0), you won div 1, because you were better than your opponents. Chem is like the extra 5% when you play someone who is on your skill level, if your opponent has a 50 chem team and you a 100 chem team and you are exactly the same, chem might let you finish 1 out of 10 chances better and might give you a slight overall advantage so that you win 60 out if your 100 games and he wins the other 40. Chem clearly doesn´t mean "nothing", it just doesn´t mean "anything" either, but people can´t seem to see anything between those 2 extremes :)

    Doesn't mean "Nothing" but I think people expect it to cause a dramatic effect when it really doesn't.

    Chem is overrated, most of drafts teams are around 80 chemistry, and the play the same as 100

    Chem doesn't mean nothing but don't sacrifice a very good player in your team because of poor links

    Chem matters somewhat, try and get your player with 5 or more chem so they get the standard stats any more than that and they just miss on the bonuses afaik

    I've lost to 50 chem teams, and I also beat some of them by 7+ goals. It matters, sometimes, but eventually the guy behind the controller means more. I guess that guy was worse than you think.
