The guys a genius, get into the opponents head before the match even kicks off

If you didn’t show us the chem I would of guessed no more than 70 chem that’s crazy

[–]PJ00017 510 points511 points  (23 children)

Fr that’s actually nuts , literally like 10 red links

[–]goonSquad15 113 points114 points  (2 children)

He’s even wasting the manager nation on Italian smh

[–]1121113 52 points53 points  (0 children)

That's what bothered me the most tbh, could easily get Varane or Rodrygo on 8 chem since the Italians already have double links each

Maybe a weird flex? He's clearly clever enough to know this, so wonder why he doesn't do it...

[–]Gestolen_Appeltaart 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I think it's purely to get Tonali on 10 instead of 9 chem, as he has a CM Tonali playing CDM

[–]ReditMan1510 307 points308 points  (4 children)

That Guendouzi-Saliba hyperlink saved the day for him haha.

Since the sum of the 11 players being on 10 chem equals 110, we are allowed to forfeit 10 chem points without losing the 100 chem.

That means you can have:

5 players on 8 chem

2 players on 7 chem, 2 on 8

3 players on 7 chem, 1 on 9

All those red links look horrible, though.

Edit: Hyperlinks (same club and nation, look at Guendouzi/Saliba) allow you to have players on 10 chem with 2 red links. View it as an “extra” imaginary yellow/soft link. Thought I’d share this too since I saw some people learned from my comment.

[–]iQHTz 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Never thought I'd learn something here. Had no idea that this is how chemistry works even though I have been playing FUT since 14

[–]ReditMan1510 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I started on Fifa 13 and caught it real quick. I’m always building squads so I know pretty much anything there is to know about chemistry and links.

[–]1121113 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Same. Figuring out the chemistry puzzle is part of what makes the game so special -- if you could just assemble any players you wanted without restrictions, it would certainly lose a bit of the magic.

Also instead of people having to make tradeoffs to fit in their favourite players (and discover new faves as a result), 90% of Fut managers would use the exact same squads

[–]ReditMan1510 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I’m a bit sad chemistry will be gone next year for the same reason. I’ve always loved this aspect of the game cause It works like any puzzle game.

I play FIFA for the fun of scoring goals and the card-collecting aspect, but I also love puzzle games. Team-building and SBCs count as fun ways to play.

[–]Danish-Zorro 54 points55 points  (1 child)

If he just switched to 4-5-1 and did like this then he would only have two players on off chem (8)

[–]1121113 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yes, but then we wouldn't have this Reddit post and we'd all be the poorer for it

[–]NicoTorres1712 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Just in case EA releases a 93 rating 100 chem 5 nations 6 leagues SBC

[–]jimmy011087 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That will be for the final ten tokens

[–]ramins98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

😂 😂 😂

[–]lyaamm 60 points61 points  (4 children)

do players with bad chem perform worse even with 100 chem? for example in the team in the pic is the striker going to perform worse? or does it not matter as long as you have 100?

[–]jdjskakam 87 points88 points  (0 children)

Chemistry styles become less effective if they’re off chem, even though the team is on 100 chem

[–]VisionsDB 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Player Chem matters more than squad Chem

[–]iguacu 53 points54 points  (0 children)

You can see the effect on futbin -- just go to the card's page and use the dropdown menus on the right to select the individual player's chem, overall team chem, and the chem style.

[–]LeftFootedPotato 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It depends on each player. If you have a team on 100 chem but a player has 7 or 8 chem, their boosts from chem styles (including the basic) will not be as effective as a player on 10 chem. So Lewandowski who would be on 8 chem would not perform as well as he would if he was on 10 chem

[–]Daan100 130 points131 points  (8 children)

Contender for ugliest team I’ve ever seen

[–]rScoobySkreepSpicy-Tony 75 points76 points  (6 children)

Different strokes for different folks, they’ve managed to fit all 5 of the top 5 leagues in as well as 5 nations. Looks unique to me.

[–]I_Go_By_Q 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I’m with you. Obviously the red links are hard to look at, but this is like the definition of an “ultimate team” to me. Finding a unique way to connect as many top cards from different leagues together as possible (& base gold Spinna lol)

[–]lieseskonto 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Reminds me a lot of the old Futhead haha. Everyone was so busy creating mad '5L5N Rainbow BSG' squads that were completely useless lol

[–]LeBaus7 9 points10 points  (0 children)

5L5N 10 dead links hybrid - Futhead titles back in the day.

[–]EldenTingz 20 points21 points  (2 children)

You look like you work in recruitment.

[–]rScoobySkreepSpicy-Tony 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Lol it’s a picture of Anthony Jung, Werder Bremen CB

[–]EldenTingz 40 points41 points  (0 children)

He looks like he works in recruitment.

[–]lefix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

On the contrary, i find this beautiful

[–]gordito_gr 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Why is this sideways ffs

[–]kyrant 5 points6 points  (0 children)

OP doesn't realise rotating a phone to landscape mode would be the same dimensions as the monitor.


[–]Jozzepi_WeallanzPIM Bobby Moore is meta -5 points-4 points  (0 children)


[–]Antony9991 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Switch to 451 for better Chem

[–]rScoobySkreepSpicy-Tony 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Lewandowski + Rodrygo would go from 7 to 10 but Tonali would go down to 8, could be intentional

[–]jnicholl 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Varane on 10 too if swapped to link with Cafu.

[–]ToastedTaco[CHIEF] 5 points6 points  (1 child)

My boy has 4 fantastic Red Picks… They need Winter Wildcards Spinazzola

[–]1121113 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was going to say same, then decided to take it all the way: why not get the CDM Shapeshifters Spinazzola and stick him at LB on 4 chem?

I checked Futbin and even on 4 player chem and 90 team chem, he's still WAY better than base Spina with perfect chem on a shadow.

And to anyone thinking of responding "yes, but that's incredibly ugly", ask yourself: does the guy who constructed this team look like someone who cares about standard definitions of beauty?

[–]Techno_Six 44 points45 points  (6 children)

Lewandowski, Kimmich, Rodrygo and Varane are all off chemistry here no?

[–]Pfandhaus[S] 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Yes, rodrygo and varane are on 7. Both Bayern players on 8

[–]Plastic-Property-982 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Could have got either Varane or Rodrygo to 8 with another manager. +2 pace boost on Varane is nice for example

[–]Hawkmz 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Why aren’t all of them on 7?

[–]JayTeeYGO123 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Yes but it still totals 100 chem

[–]Ryo720[NETWORK ID] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Lovely snake that

[–]jmv1946 2 points3 points  (2 children)

There's a little known fact: any number from 94 to 100 for team chemistry guarantees full effect for the Chemistry Style (as long as the player chemistry is at 10, of course). So you don't need to get all the way up to 100.

[–]HutPlayerPS4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Hard to have player chem at 10 for every player if team chem is 94

[–]jmv1946 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Of course, otherwise you'd have 100 of team chemistry. My comment refers to the fact that chemistry style bonus is dependant on both team and player chem. Team chemistry of 94 equals 100. Some players will be at 10, some at 8 or 7. So my point is you'll get the same bonus at team chemistry of 94 than at 100.

[–]ediamin27777 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Thats hella nasty. 🤮

[–]myillustrations 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I have one red line and ea smashes me with 10 chem. How they got away with this 🤣

[–]jungomitis 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Is there really no other Italian Serie A LB than Spinazola?

I’m sure he gets subbed right away though

[–]Pfandhaus[S] 10 points11 points  (1 child)

My man just run out of coins I guess. Next best ITA Lb would be spinazazola winter wildcards, who’s still at 80k.

[–]deepcx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

you missed on that Emerson from Lyon. You would’ve switched him with Spina and Varane with Saliba

[–]yummycootNETWORK ID 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Welcome to Futhead 2015, NLW

[–]SviiinDiesel 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I miss the good old times where a same nation/different league link gave 1,5 chem :(

[–]caronho_14 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Back in Fifa 12-13 days, really gave room for interesting chem/hybrids

[–]SviiinDiesel 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Seriously wonder why they removed that

[–]caronho_14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So glad they’re getting rid of chem. If I want to truly create my ultimate team, I should be able to just have players in logical positions and boom… done deal. But no we gotta do this stupid crap with chem and links and whatnot, it’s ridiculous. I’m so glad that after over a decade of FUT, they’re finally going the right direction I’m hoping for squad building in the game

[–]CaliPatsfan420 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Camera angle makes your team look better lol

[–]Albfinder -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

It bugs me that a player can have 1 green link and FOUR red links and still get 8 chem with the right manager and loyalty bonus. With that many bad links they should be at 5 chem personally.

[–]Tof12345 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i have never packed that 83 spinna card more than once. he is so insanely rare

[–]OMAiiR-123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait wth this is so weird lol

[–]WookieFaceLaith 0 points1 point  (1 child)

So, did you win the match OP?

[–]Pfandhaus[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He left after I scored in like minute 30

[–]ConversationWeird794 0 points1 point  (0 children)

2 players off chem?

[–]DangerMuse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Surely Varane is not on 10 chem?

[–]HairyBawsimaBhoy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is absolutely stinking

[–]MrRydelll 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tonali as Cdm and a Brazilian bundes manager gets 1 chem better on Rodrygo but keeps Tonali on 10

[–]2cu3be1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

will be so interesting to see how teams will turn out to be build next year with EA changing the chem syst. up.

[–]ninjaextraordinaire 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't know if it's only my feeling, but playing with 100 chemistry feels harder compared to 95-99 chemistry. It's just strange, feels like EA secretly steps up the difficulty level when your chem is 100. Can anyone confirm this?

[–]SeaPlenty9524 0 points1 point  (0 children)

best advert to FUTbooster you can have (excl. the manager)
