We always test all parts of each FIFA game as everyone has differences. UT has a thing called chemistry and also player morale. Basically means how well people get on with each other and how happy they are. Or at least it should mean this. We have been looking at team chemistry and individual chemistry. While testing it in previous versions we realized how important morale is and fitness. Also which positions the players to like to play in outside of UT. Check this in an offline exhibition game before you buy players so HULK actually likes LW/RW/ST. We always use him as ST when not testing the game 🙂
So this is how we tested everything trying to use scientific controls and variables rather than just deciding. Obviously the opponents online have different levels of FIFA ability but we know how everything is affecting our players. We have played over 150 games purely testing this with no other internet devices switched on to give the best connection possible. If you don’t understand everything below or just want the results just read the conclusion at the bottom of the page ha. We also recorded lots of games and will attempt to create videos giving examples. We took some real beatings and some people were recording at the time too ha.
The control used was 4-1-2-1-2 formation, Team rated 79-81, Play >10 games with >90 fitness, Neutral morale, 95 or higher chemistry and every player 9 chemistry, Players in correct positions and formation, Played between 7pm-10pm UK time, In the Gold cup only.
Then varied the following (meaning only changing each of below in turn compared to the original control) –
- 2 attacking players in wrong formation but correct position and 9 chemistry from players around them.
- 2 attacking players in correct formation but wrong position with 9 chemistry from players around them.
- 2 attacking players from different leagues both with 0 chemistry, wrong formation and wrong position.
- 2 attacking players from different leagues both with 2 chemistry, correct formation but wrong position.
- 2 attacking players from different leagues both with 4 chemistry, correct formation and position.
- Less than 70 overall chemistry. Used all different players from various leagues so players had less chemistry but in correct formation and position.
- Less than 70 overall chemistry. Added a few players from various leagues in wrong formation and position.
- Less than 50 overall chemistry. Players from various leagues in wrong formation and position.
