This guide will tell you everything you need to know about the new chemistry system
Ultimate Team Chemistry System Explained – FIFA 23
The chemistry system has been an integral part of the series as it will allow you to improve the performance of your team by adding players belonging to the same Club, League or Nationality.
These provided a boost in the player’s performance improving their stats for loyalty and positioning.
FIFA 23 has changed the chemistry system by focusing on the chemistry of each individual player instead of the squad. If you add players belonging to the same country, league or club to a team then you will receive 3 points for each player.
The positional links have been removed along with the chemistry bar. You can now reposition any player irrespective of their position on the field.
If a player has zero chemistry points then it won’t negatively affect the attribute of the players but having three points can enhance their attributes.
You can increase a player’s chemistry by adding more players belonging to the same Team/Club/Nationality to your team. The amount of chemistry that you unlock for each category is based on these metrics and the more players you add to each category, the more chemistry is unlocked for players belonging to that specific category.
- 2 players belonging to the same club: 1 Chemistry point
- 5 players belonging to the same club- 2 Chemistry points
- 9 players belonging to the same club- 3 Chemistry points
- 3 players belonging to the same League- 1 Chemistry point
- 6 players belonging to the same League- 2 Chemistry points
- 10 players belonging to the same League- 3 Chemistry points
- 3 players from the same country- 1 Chemistry point
- 6 players from the same country- 2 Chemistry points
- 10 players from the same country- 3 Chemistry points
You can mix and match attributes from different categories to gain points for each player, for example, 1 Club point +2 League points= 3 chemistry points for the player.
Icon players count as 2 players towards the Nation chemistry points while Heroes count as 2 players toward the League chemistry points.
Managers in your team will also count as 1 player towards league and nation chemistry points.
The Total Chemistry menu on the left side of the screen will tell you about the number of players required to reach the 3-player threshold limit in that category.
You will see little diamonds on the card for each player that indicates the number of chemistry points that they have. Each player will only gain chemistry points when they are playing in their preferred position.
If any players are not playing in their preferred position then they will have zero chemistry and their FUT attributes will be applicable to them.
This will be represented by a yellow exclamation mark that appears on their card. All players on the team will have a preferred and alternative position on the team. The Loyalty system available in previous FIFA titles has also been removed.
That’s everything you need to know about the new Chemistry system in FIFA 23!
