Time for another one. This one might get interesting.

A few of us have done our best to explain in the other draft thread but here goes nothing....

We have 8 tag teams. Each tag team has 1 club, 1 nation and 1 league from which they have to build their starting XI. You do not have to fulfil a quota from each category, however try to be as creative as you can.....

....to a point. The twist to this is that we are building our XI's in same way we would in Ultimate Team. Every single player in your XI must have 9 chemistry by the end of the draft. Therefore, you have to ensure your players have strong links with neighbouring positions and players in the team.

Dead links are allowed, as long as you compensate them with strong links elsewhere. As long as every player has 9 chemistry, you're good to go.

    Stick with me here...

    Each individual player must either fall under your league, your club or your nation. So, let's say your league is Serie A. You pick a midfielder who played in Serie A, but he also played in the Bundesliga for Hoffenheim.

    Your nation is Germany, so you pick Mats Hummels for the centre of defence. Your midfielder would link with Hummels, because although your midfielder was picked under the Serie A category, he also at one point in his career played in the Bundesliga. Therefore he would link with Hummels.

    Simply put - if neighbouring players in the XI (CB,LB or GK, CB for example) at any point in their careers played for the same club or played in the same league, they will get a chemistry link.

    It's not easy to explain but hopefully you get the drift.

    Time Limit

    The first round will have a time limit of 6 hours. From the second round until we finish, the limit will be 4 hours.

    If your team misses the time window, we move on to the next team. You must then wait until the end of the round before catching up.

    As always, between midnight and 8am, the time window pauses.

    It's a tag team draft so you have to discuss picks with your partner over PM's.

    Formations

    Your team can use whatever formation you wish, provided it is in Ultimate Team. You can use a custom squad builder to double check on how the chemistry links work if you wish.

    @fergoosee looks like you're stuck with me.

    4th is the perfect position in the middle going up and down!

    Right need to read properly and get my head round this one.

    I think the chemistry is straightforward for the most part. The only confusion really is if you choose a player and its not shown on the squad builder. For example, if you have Hummels at CB, and he links to a Serie A CM (who used to play in the Bundesliga) then the squad builder isn't going to show the chemistry link?

    Is this current players only, or all time?

    So if you have Bayern Munich Hummels at CB and Inter Milan Matthaus at CDM you could say there was a same club/same league chemistry link because Matthaus used to play for Bayern Munich?

    Or would you have to have Matthaus as a Bayern Munich player to get the link?

    There would be a link regardless.

    Both played in the Bundesliga so they would get chemistry.

    Yes but when you create the team in a squad builder, it won't give the chemistry points for both being bundesliga league? You will have to calculate the chemistry points yourself?

    Oh but he is. All about opinions. But for me what he achieved in lesser teams beats what Messi and Ronaldo have done in teams full of superstars. No one has ever dragged a team to World Cup glory like Maradona did in 86. And almost again in 90 when he wasn't at his peak.

    And to win 2 Seria A with Napoli up against the greatest club team of all time (for me anyway) in Milan is quite incredible. Would Espanyol win La Liga with Ronaldo or Messi in the team? I doubt it personally.

    Times have changed..... Its all about opinion really like you've just says!

    The teams Maradona played in where no place near as poor as Espanyol either!
