FIFA 23 Chemistry system explained in FUT 23 - Game Guide

 The chemistry system in the Ultimate Team game mode has been established for several years. However, the system in FIFA 23 changes fundamentally. In the following, we will explain how the new chemistry system works and what you need to watch out for.

Chemistry system in FUT 23 - changes

In FIFA 23 Ultimate Team gets a revised chemistry system. The following points have been revised in FUT 23:

  • So far it was the case that players standing next to each other built up "links" with each other, which could become stronger and stronger. These links are gone in FUT 23, they no longer exist. Instead, players can now build chemistry with each other across the field, rather than just with adjacent players.
  • In the past, there were also penalties and the respective values ​​became worse if there was no link. The penalties are also no longer in FUT 23, so your players can no longer receive any negative effects if there is no chemistry.
  • Also, the 0 to 10 scale from previous FIFA games has been removed. Instead, there are now up to 3 points per athlete that anyone can achieve (more on that below).
  • Players now have one major and one to multiple minor positions. These can be exchanged with each other. What is no longer possible is to move the player freely in your lineup. If a player plays in a position that isn't their actual position, that player will always have 0 chemistry. That's why it's sometimes even more important that you change your player's position via the position modifier. However, the player's rating remains the same whether top rated or not.
  • There is no loyalty system anymore. It used to be that players got an extra chemistry point directly from packs or tasks, but that is also a thing of the past.

FIFA 23 - Chemistry System Explained

With the changes described above, you now build your chemistry in FUT 23 differently than in previous years. But how exactly does that work? We explain it to you:

When you add players with a matching country/region, league, or club, you build chemistry. Example: If you have 3 French in your team, each of the 3 French gets 1 chemistry point. Each player can have a maximum of 3 chemistry.

Each club, league, and region that is in your squad is listed in a bar on the left. Players on the bench do not affect team chemistry.

On the left you can see the chemistry of your team.
On the left, you can see the chemistry of your team.

The following table shows you how many players you need to build up chemistry points:

-1 Chemistry point2 chemistry points3 chemistry points
association2 players4 players7 players
Liga3 players5 players8 players
Nationality/Region3 players5 players8 players

So the perfect chemistry value is 33. Which is also logical, because 11 starting players x 3 is 33. FUT Icons and FUT Heroes always have 3 chemistry points when playing in their intended position.
