There are a lot of things that have been enhanced in the new FIFA 18. One thing that was ignored in the earlier games was the chemistry. We are talking about Team chemistry, player chemistry as well as the different chemistry styles. A good chemistry between your players can help in the development of the players attribute by 60 to 80 points. A good FIFA 18 chemistry can change your silver card into a good one, and a bad chemistry could take the new players attribute and change the card from gold to Silver.
You might not know of the many benefits that it can have on your team and the players. Many of you might not even know what it actually means, how you can build it, how you can include individual chemistry with team chemistry etc.
FIFA 18 Chemistry – How it Works
Completely understanding the FIFA 18 Chemistry in FUT is a bit complex. There is actually an algorithm that executes different equations behind it. Basically, there are three different types of Chemistry in the game. The Player Chemistry rated out of 10. The Team CHemistry which is rated out of 100 and then comes the overall chemistry which is a combination of the Team Chemistry and Individual Player Chemistry.
There are different Chemistry Styles which are basically modifiers that come into effect when the stats have been increased. Every time you play a match against opponents, a good team and player chemistry helps in increasing their attributes by a huge amount.
The Player Chemistry and the Team Chemistry do not affect the player attributes in an even manner. Instead, EA finally revealed the logic behind it. The Player Chemistry accounts for 75% while only 25% is reserved for Team Chemistry. So, it is better to have a card with 10 rated Player Chemistry than having a team with overall Team Chemistry of 100. The later is not fully ruled out, but effects very little.
How they affect the attributes? This is calculated by calculating the Overall Chemistry of the player. The Overall Chemistry is marked out of hundred. If the Overall Chemistry of the player is more than 50, you will see an increment in the player attributes. If the Overall Chemistry is less than 50, the attributes will fall. And if it is exactly 50, the attributes won’t rise or fall. The amount of increase depends upon how much over or under the Overall Chemistry rating is from 50.
But how to calculate Overall Chemistry? You won’t have to apply much math to it.
- First, take up the Individual Player Chemistry rating and multiply it with 7.5
- Now take your Team Chemistry and multiply it by 0.25
- Now add both the results to get the Overall Chemistry.
For example, if you have a player with Individual Player Chemistry of 9 and a chemistry of the team be 90, the overall chemistry of the player will be 9 x 7.5 + 90 x 0.25 = 90. Since 90 is way far from 50, the attributes of the player will increase really fast.
On the other hand, which attribute will increase depends upon the chemistry styles. Another thing to keep in mind is that the Chemistry is calculated before the match is started. The chemistry rating does not change with any kind of change in team formation or substitution that you make after the match starts.
There are three possible scenarios that could happen with FIFA 18 Chemistry:
- If the player has 100 team chemistry rating and 10 individual chemistry rating, you will see the maximum increase in the attribute points. You get 90 attribute points which are distributed as per you chemistry style pack.
- On the other hand, if you have 0 team chemistry as well as 0 Player chemistry, you will see a maximum decrease of 25 points in every attribute.
- If a player has individual chemistry ranging from 3 to 5, the attribute increment is nonuniform.
How to Increase FIFA 18 Chemistry in FUT
There are certain factors that you should keep in your mind if you want to have a better player as well as team chemistry. Some important of them are:
Player Positioning: The position at which a player plays is written right under the card. When they are played in any other position you will see the position color changing to green, orange or red. Red simply means that the player is out of position disturbing the entire team chemistry as well. Orange means that the player is likely out of position and green means that he is perfectly in position. Place the players in their natural spots for better Team chemistry.
Player Linking: This is an important part. When you place a player in any position, you will see a lot of lines connecting their card with the cards of other players around him. These lines are different in color again, i.e. red, green and orange. There are a lot of things that determine the color of these lines for example, whether the players are of the same league, club or nationality. The final chemistry is determined by the number of green lines x 2 + the number of orange lines – the number of red Lines.
Manager: The Team Chemistry also depends upon the league as well as the nationality of the manager. But not all the players are affected. If the player in your team is from the same league or nation, he will get a Chemistry boost in the form of a green tie icon.
There is a loyalty bonus of one point in Team Chemistry for all player who has played 10 or more matches in your Club.
And for the substitutes, EA recently announced that each and every sub that comes on the pitch after the match starts comes with a flat Player Chemistry rating of 5, no more no less. That makes an overall rating of 60-65, which is not bad too.
