Since its advent Chemistry has been a very important aspect of FIFA Mobile 21. In-game Chemistry confers advantages in VS Attack in the form of better chances. No matter what you’re doing in FIFA Mobile, having high Chemistry is going to be a positive for your team. Perks have been introduced last year also play a vital part in improving your max chemistry in FIFA Mobile 21.
Additionally, Team Chemistry has been revamped this season. In this new season, Chemistry linked up by exact leagues is now expanded to regional groups. Regional Chemistry Groups include multiple leagues that let you link up more players for added Chemistry. For example, a player from the Premier League will have a Chemistry Link with players from the EFL Championship, EFL League 1, and EFL League 2. It would give you a lot more freedom in teambuilding with the 8 different regional chemistry groups.
FIFA Mobile 21 Chemistry: An Introduction
Team Chemistry is that little number that pops up on the right when you go into VS matches where an unbalanced chem adjusts your chances.
Chemistry only comes to play in versus, it doesn’t matter in any other type of skill game or match play. Only versus attack and league vs league. Chemistry imbalance is much like an OVR imbalance thus determines the chances you’ll be getting. Higher your chemistry and team OVR compared to your opponent, the more great chances you’ll have during your versus attack. The worse the balance you will end up with counter-attacks. If you are into head-to-head or just playing campaign matches and skill games, it won’t affect anything. Chemistry won’t even come into play for you.
Chemistry is unlocked once you reach level 7 and is only possible between 80 rated and above players ie elites. They are designated by solid lines connecting the players. As compared to the dotted lines connecting gold players and below. Grey lines signify no chemistry at all while bold neon Green lines at the other end of the spectrum signify an abundance of chem.
How to increase Team Chemistry in FIFA Mobile
Chemistry is basically a numerical breakdown of the links between the players in your starting lineup. Each player in your starting 11 is given a possible chemistry score of 12 for base players or 13 and above for event program players. Icons, for instance, have a unique chemistry that allows them to link with all players despite what league or country they are from.
1. Avoid Hybrid Squads unless necessary
The chemistry score is divided between their team, their league, and their nationality and with the new update it is also divided in specific regions, with the addition of a program/event for event players. Each of these attributes is given a score based on the players in proximity through their connection lines. So by default having a squad from the same league, nationality or even club makes maximizing chemistry easy.
Example: Messi at Centre Forward receives 5 Player Connection lines because he is linked to the wings and also to the center mids. The goalkeeper however only has links to the center backs so maxing out his chemistry score is more difficult in a four back-formation.
Going back to Messi, we can see, because of his four connections, he has 56 chemistry points but only the first 21 are counted towards the team’s final chemistry score. Alba is the left-back, he has a total of 19 possible because of his different program. Even though he has 22 chemistry points between his team, he does end up maxing up 19 total for the team compared to Messi who has much more chemistry but maxes out at 21. Understanding these aspects makes putting a mixed team together possible.
2. Prefer using New-Event Cards over Base/Old Event Players
Viewing from the chemistry view, the numbers on the left side of the team crest mean the chem value he is receiving from his teammates while the right-hand side numbers indicate the chemistry value he is giving out to each of his connected teammates in return. Each player has different chemistry stats as seen from the player.
As we can see players from the latest events such as Lunar New Year, Top Transfers, and Carniball, can receive maximum chemistry up to even 25 compared to past program players such as Team of the Year who yield up 15 to 19. You need to use the most recent program cards to boost your chemistry. The more you use Base cards or Past Event players, the harder it will get to bump up your chem to reach the maximum.
3. Check out Players before buying
You can see individual player chemistry stats in the player detail page in the bottom right corner under the player bio, you need to check those stats when you are researching players to put into your lineup especially if you are trying to push for high chemistry especially on a hybrid or mixed team. These will allow you to max out your chemistry with that mixed squad across multiple teams even leagues or nationalities.
Note: Chemistry has nothing to do with your position. It has everything to do with your links. You can swap positions in between your team and it won’t change your chemistry score at all. Position literally has nothing to do with chemistry, it only affects the boost associated with the player.
4. Adding Icons in your Squad
If you are having trouble figuring out how to maximize chemistry in your squad having your favorite crop of players, try adding some of your favorite Legends from the past! The Icons as we know them have the specialty of Wildcard Chemistry. They possess special Chemistry which enables them to link Chemistry with each and every player.
The Icons are from a particular club or league, and they thus add the maximum chemistry to a particular region, but stay lest assured, they will still enable wildcard chemistry to the rest players. Thus having an Icon in your squad can boost your previously neglected chemistry by a high margin.
5. Keep a note of all the Regional Chemistry groups
As we know this season in FIFA Mobile 21, Chemistry linked up by exact leagues is now expanded to brand new regional groups. These Regional Chemistry Groups in turn consist of multiple leagues that let you link up more players for added Chemistry.
