FIFA 23 has arrived, with a number of new features in this year's game. That is especially in the title's most popular game mode in Ultimate Team. One of those related to chemistry, with a big change to the way you will build your teams. If you are a bit confused then don't worry, here is a summary of FIFA 23 chemistry explained.
Chemistry is a fairly straightforward concept in Ultimate Team. You players will link to other players who come from the same team, nation, or league as them.
However, the way it is applied has changed in FIFA 23. Whereas the footballers would have to be in similar areas of the pitch to experience benefits of chemistry links, this is no longer the case.
Here is a quick explainer on how it all will work.
FIFA 23 Chemistry Explained
The main thing you will notice about chemistry in FIFA 23 is that 'links' are no longer present. The green or orange lines that indicated increased chemistry have been removed.
Instead, players can now now be given a maximum of three chemistry points.
Continue below to see how to increase your chemistry.
How To Increase Chemistry In FIFA 23
There are three basic ways to increase chemistry in FIFA 23.
The first is by playing your squad members in their preferred position. In FIFA 23, players will only receive a chemistry boost if they are starting in the exact position that is displayed on their player item.
Most players in the game have a number of suitable positions and you can select whichever one suits you by using a 'position modifier' consumable item.
Secondly, you can build chemistry by meeting the various 'chemistry thresholds' linked to your players. The graphic below gives a good idea as to how this can be done.
As you can see above, players receive one chemistry point when they play alongside two players from the same club as them. That number then increases by one with each of the subsequent names added from that club.
It works the same with league and nation links. As mentioned previously, players can receive chemistry boost from relevant teammates regardless of their position on the pitch.
Finally, players can also be given a chemistry boost by adding a manager from the same league or nation to your squad.
- Play your players in the correct position
- Meet the various chemistry thresholds
- Add a manager from the same league or nation
All fairly straightforward.
With all of that, hopefully you will feel as though have now had FIFA 23 chemistry explained.
It is a bit of change to previous iterations of the game, although it should offer you a bit more flexibility moving forward when crafting your squad.
