In this, the second, part to our Ultimate Team Chemistry Guide we’ll go through the two easiest ways to create an Ultimate Team with 100% chemistry.
Previously we learned the effects of Ultimate Team Chemistry and why it’s so important for winning matches. We also learned each of the individual factors that go towards making up your overall Ultimate Team Chemistry in FIFA 12.
So here goes:
The 2 Easiest Techniques to create a 100% Chemistry Ultimate Team
1. Pick A Team Based on Nationality.
As mentioned in part one of our FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Chemistry Guide, players increase the team chemistry if they link up with other players of the same nationality so one of the easiest ways to get a 100% Chemistry Ultimate Team is to choose a squad of players that all come from the same nation. Popular nationalities include:
Be prepared to pay a premium for players from popular nations.
If you’re looking to create a 100% Chemistry Team on a budget, look to less popular nations that still contain some quality players such as:
Below is my current Brazilian Team.
2. Pick A Team Based on League.
As with nationalities, the exact same principal applies to leagues. Players who link up with other players that play in the league increase Ultimate Team Chemistry. Therefore, again, it makes sense that picking a squad of players that all play for the same league is an easy way to achieve an Ultimate Team with 100% team chemistry.
As with Nationalities, again be prepared to pay over the odds for good players in the more popular leagues, such as:
- Barclays Premier League
- Spanish BBVA
- Italian Serie A
If you’re looking to build a team based on league on the cheap, again choose a less popular league. Great Ultimate Teams can be created from the following leagues using a lot less coins:
- German Bundesliga
- French Ligue 1
- Portuguese Premiera Liga
- Russian Premier League
When building teams from less popular leagues you’ll also have the added bonus that a lot of the players will have the same nationality giving an additional boost to Ultimate Team Chemistry.
If you’re planning on building a couple of teams, then plan ahead! As you can see below, I was able to use a number of my Brazilian players in my Serie A team. Being able to use the same players in both teams dramatically reduces the cost of both teams.
Other 100% Ultimate Team Considerations
Once you’ve decided to focus on building an Ultimate Team from either the same nation or the same league there are still another couple of factors to consider to make sure you get that Team Chemistry up to 100%. Unfortunately, nationality or league aren’t enough on their own.
Choosing a formation is an important decision because it can have a large bearing on how much you’ll have to pay in order to get your 100% Ultimate Team Chemistry. As an indication 4-1-2-1-2 formation cards can sell for anywhere between 6,000 to 12,000 coins!
Once you’ve decided on a formation, do your research. If you’ve chosen a popular one, make sure you know how much formation cards are selling for before you search for players to make sure you don’t pay over the odds for a player in your preferred formation.
Players in the right formation can also give a nice, healthy boost to their team chemistry. You can still get away with 2 or 3 players out of formation however and still achieve 100% Ultimate Team Chemistry taking into account other factors.
Players playing in their preferred positions increase Ultimate Team Chemistry. The more players you can get into their preferred positions the better. The odd CF playing ST or CM playing CDM won’t make too much of a difference but it all helps. The more players playing in their correct positions allows you to get away with more players playing out of formation.
Get yourself a good Gold manager with your preferred formation! (You can use Gold managers in Bronze and Silver teams!) Try to choose one with the same nationality as the majority of players in your team. This will be straight forward for your Ultimate Team base on nationality but you might have a decision to make on your Ultimate Team based on league.
A good manager with the right formation and nationality can boost your chemistry up by as much as 20 points! They’re by far the cheapest way to boost your Ultimate Team Chemistry!
- Choose the nation or league you want to base your team around.
- Try to pick players in your preferred formation and their preferred position – remember you’ll be able to get away with a few out of position or formation.
- Get a good Manager that matches your formation with the same nationality as the majority of your players.
- A good tip is to buy your cheaper players with the correct formation and position. This will allow you to buy you’re more expensive players a lot cheaper buy choosing one with an unpopular formation or position and still be able to achieve 100% Team Chemistry.
Not satisfied with teams from the same nation or league? Next up we’ll be discussing how to build hybrid teams and how to link your favourite players together.
