EA let us play our top teams without having to worry about chemistry, I have so many top players I can’t use or consider buying because of this, only for a week, experiment with it see how much positive feedback you get.

    Would make things more interesting..

    There are so many single players than interest my in a league but not a full squad from that league. Hybrids are good but sometimes you just want to use the players you want and not the players you have to use.

    Chemistry needs to go full stop it’s not ultimate team if you can’t link the players you want it’s just a completely pointless restriction and just means people can’t just have all the players they want

    For me this is nonsense! Teams buy players not only from one nationality or from one league. Couldn't Real Madrid buy (for example) Rashford to their club due to the absence of England players in the team or due to the absence of Legend players on the team ?! Idiocy! You can make a task to play a player for 20-30 matches and there will be chemistry 10. This stupid company limits us in the freedom to choose the squad. Not everyone knows how to play Messi, Ronaldo. In their place there is no way to put players from other leagues! I'm not surprised that ea doesn't understand this!

    Said for ages that players should achieve `icon` status (in terms of links) once they have played a certain amount of games for your club.

    Definitely. Gets boring playing against the same core players over and over again.

    I hope EA wont, trust me i will hear you complain when all you see in WL is these Kent/ASM and other OP player hybrid teams.
    It will be even more of sweat fest, with all these players trying to exploit meta players and moves.

    Stepping away from position restrictions is what made NBA 2k my team a joke of a game later this year. Having 7"7 Centers with 90+ speed playing Point Guard where you normally run 6"0 players is beyond stupid. For me it takes all the fun away of building a team and actually thinking through who to buy.

    My guess, majority of the player base wont pick up these off league players, they will sell everything tradeable and buy one squad of meta players.

    Keep chemistry! Those who want it gone are either bad at the game, paying to win but still losing or button-bashers who can't be bothered thinking.

    So you won't see the same core players making your game boring eh? Of course you will just different ones.

    Good thing there is a ignore option on this forum so that this was hopefully the last time i had to read such a stupid response.

    Keep chemistry but add a player loyalty to where they attain icon level chemistry after a player completes so many matches.

    10 matches = +1
    100 matches = +2
    200 matches = +3
    300 matches = +4
    etc

    If you play with somebody enough, he could fit with anybody.

    Players should at least get a yellow link to clubs they've previously played for. How does someone like CR7 have no chemistry to any Real Madrid players when he played there so long.

    Licensing would prevent that.

    Tbh, the PES system is best here.

    After traders being upset about removing pack fillers it does bring up a good point. What would you do with chem styles?

    Have they though? (removed pack fillers)

    I might not be making absolute sense of the changes, but are they not adding that other stadium stuff, tifo's etc, as well as increasing chem style drops?

    They will just fill with this stuff instead. No way in hell will we be getting more players.

    Well after the backlash from traders it’s probably a good thing if they have other fillers so it can replace the removal of fitness or chem styles if op wanted those removed too.

    It's done as a heat map type of thing that takes a bunch of things into consideration (like preferred formation, playing style and that). It's totally dynamic though so as you play, the 'chemistry' improves.

    It would take a lot more than this for many people to come back or consider buying Fifa21.
    Changing chemistry is definitely not in the top 10. The top 5 are lag and delay related.

    SO MUCH THIS.

    Players should start to "gel" with the team as they play more games, just like they do in real life.

    I just feel the effects of chemistry are absolutely ridiculous from the outset. The effects should apply to mental stats only, if anything, but not physical.

    Like, I've got a Spanish player from La Liga with 95 pace. I put him next to a French guy from Ligue 1, and the Spaniard can't run as fast anymore. How does that make even the slightest bit of sense?

    The player base has left because of Chemistry restrictions?

    Or because the game isn't very good and the only reason you've all been playing is for the free high rated objective cards and lots of free packs to feed the addiction?

    Mate I said this from FIFA 11. Will never happen.
