Chemistry needs a completely new overhaul

2 random players from the same league have a link but for instance an Iniesta has a red link to Messi.
It does not make any sense to me. They kept this system since the introduction of Fut and i honestly think they need to bring something fresh into the mode next Fifa in terms of chemistry.
Maybe take off chemistry as a whole and give the Managers a few more functions so that your team has a high chemistry instead of just linking players in the same league/same nation with eachother.

I dont know... just a random thought

    But that would mean that you would need a certain amount of matches played until you have 100 chem.
    Considering the patience most of us have particularly in weekend league i honestly think we need something else

    There needs to (imo) be some kind of restriction to squad building whereby you can't just chuck 11 players together. The people who blindly follow YouTube knob ends would just buy whichever 11 players they were told to, and teams would be even more limited than they are just now.

    But I do agree they need to come up with something different. And while they're at it stop people playing (eg) cr7 at cm just to get full chem then switching in game to his proper position. Even just the often suggested idea that players should have specific positions they play and outwith those positions the don't get the boost (I would prefer get a penalty but I reckon that's unlikely). From what I read a few years ago this would require a complete rebuild of the game and is unlikely till they move to a new engine and have to do a huge rewrite anyway.

    Would like to see previous club part of the chemistry system would be good with flashbacks and certain players who I like but can’t fit into my team

    If there was no chemistry then there would be too many cards that don’t ever gets used and it would drive up the cost of the cards that are most popular and inflate their values more than they already are. . I hate how they do chemistry but it benefits us in the long run.

    Chem in general is just outdated....... the name of the game mode is "ultimate team"..... when you can't even make your ultimate team cause you have to link players together.....

    It’s pointless, everyone just changes formation and sticks players in random positions to change in game, why bother with chemistry.

    Yea I don’t think the whole game needs changing and if you do idk why your playing it but I definitely think things could be improved upon.

    I was just thinking about this and I think past clubs should play part like you said why wouldn’t Iniesta and Messi link that would allow for more chem link ups and fun or if they added a +1 chem link say for players who play more than so many games with each other

    But I do I agree we want an “ultimate” team but if it was just free chem then there would be no skill to making a team. I just think the chem should get a few more adds.

    I like chemistry restrictions personally. I treat it as a challenge in its own right and even playing people off chem is part and parcel of football in real life even though I do have a little chem ocd.

    1 improvement I would suggest though, would be to make the Captain mean something. Give him icon links, then who ever you pick for that game/team will improve chemistry. You can now use who ever you want as the captain and he also helps the team.

    I am also hoping for this for years, maybe not remove it completely, but make it less strict..

    If scrapping chem isn't an opinion, then I'd like a consumable that allows you to field any players you want and it be full chemistry.

    They would, I guess, be in packs, and would have 1 or 3 match versions.

    Price, no doubt, would be extortionate after a while.

    But, at least it would allow some more variety in who you can play and, consequently, the teams you come up against.

    Of course, we could just have a situation where your players gradually gain chemistry the more they play together, like a real team, allowing you to actually build a cohesive unit based on your play time and not their nationality or league status.

    I really wish they would do something different with managers, maybe have the top tier managers give +2 chemistry or give a +1 to all players regardless of nation.

    They should go to a system similar to Madden. Something like if you have Multiple players from the same Country, Team or league you get boosts to certain stats. The more you have for each category the better stat upgrades get. This would add alot of variety to teams IMO.

    Not everyone. I would argue it would be worse if there were no restrictions on chem.

    You tubers would identify the best player for each position and the sheep would buy them. Ta least now there's some slight variation depending on whta league you want your strongest players from, at least up until everyone has access to icons.

    I agree. Not everyone including myself. I wouldnt worry about icons tbh. Only 1% will be able to afford the best ones and they will die in pro/elite teams when they quit anyway. I’ve given up on getting Gullit or Zidane. There will probably only be 2 on the market at one time.
  • I agree they should definitely tweek it, becoming increasingly boring seeing Mbappe starting in centre mid. Unfortunately there is no originality in this game anymore. Nearly every game you know you will face rashford, lenglet, mendy, ter stegen. David Silva one of the best midfielders there is but unfortunately unusable on Fifa as it's all pace,pace and pace. Fifa needs a good revamp that is for sure.

    Is there really any need moaning about chem when they've already made it ❤️❤️❤️❤️ easy to bypass it.

    Personally I've always liked it, and the biggest sham has been bypassing it and not punishing low chem enough.

    There's enough good cards out there to make dozens of great teams.

    1. There should be a loyalty bonus. If 10 matches played get you 1, then do something like 50 matches played get you 1 more, 100 another. They want us to play the game. This does that.

    2. Managers should mean more. They are so important in real life. Maybe managers could vary in chemistry influence, ratings boosts, etc. Maybe Mourinho boosts all defense stats for example. Klopp boosts chemistry. Etc.

    3. Switching a LM to RM or LB to RB shouldn't be so much of a drop. Or at least give guys who can play both sides in real life that ability in game.

    I agree it needs sorting out especially when ur playing squad battles and ai team only has 65 or below chem yet finished game with 85+ passing yet your team with 100 chem is on exactly same

    You're focusing on the wrong thing.
    The ability to change players positions and formations needs to be completely redone, not chemistry being removed.

    To be fair, I think both need to be addressed. My ultimate team might not work in the current parameters. I would like to see chemistry bonuses awarded for logging so many matches with a certain player.

    This. For instance, It makes no sense why David Villa doesn't get any chemistry with a non Spain Barca player.

    That’s where they have to have imagination and bring back bronze and silver tournaments.

    That's a licencing issue. He's no longer a barca player so he can't behave as such.
