How to Choose the Right FUT 14 Chemistry Style
There are many things you should look at before picking a FUT 14 chemistry style. It is a difficult choice but is ultimately your decision. Pay attention to the following points:
This is probably the most overlooked factor when choosing the right FUT 14 chemistry style to apply in the players. Teams with low budgets should pay attention to this point because the prices of these cards may range between 150 coins and 10k coins. You never should quit buying the player you want just to be able to apply the chemistry styles to your players. Look to this cards as adjustment.
It is also important to note that a more expensive chemistry style doesn’t mean that it is a better style. Hunter, Shadow and Hawk are the most expensive cards. However, the Basic style, the cheapest one, is some times the best choice.
The position is an important factor when choosing a FUT 14 chemistry style. While not mandatory, most of the time defensive styles are applied to defenders (Sentinel, Guardian, Gladiator, Backbone and Anchor), attacking styles are applied to forwards (Sniper, Deadeye, Hawk, Marksman and Finisher) and the other styles to the midfielders (Artist, Architect, Powerhouse, Maestro e Engine). The five goalkeepers styles may only be applied to these players.
Generally speaking, it is a good practice to apply chemistry styles according to the player’s position, if it is in line with the other factors.
The formation has an important role when choosing a FUT 14 chemistry style. Players which play in the same position but in different formations may have different needs. Let’s take the example of the central backs. If they play in a 4xx formation, they should be fast. However, to the central CB of a 5xx formation, the defending and the heading is something much more important.
When choosing a FUT 14 chemistry style, you should carefully analyse the roles of each player in the team.
- PLAY STYLE
There are no two people alike. So, no one plays FIFA in the same way. There are better players and worse players. There are players that like to use the wings to attack and there are players that like to do it by the middle. There are players that prefer to play in counter attacks and there are players that prefer to keep the ball. Not all of these preferences are reflected in the formations we choose. Ie, two people with the same formations and the same players can make use of them in a different manner.
When choosing a FUT 14 chemistry style, you should carefully analyse the roles of each player according to our play style.
- PLAYERS’ ATTRIBUTES
There are no two players alike. So, it is impossible to apply a chemistry style without knowing the players’ attributes and work rates.
One of the most common questions has to do with the approach that should be done: it is better to boost the lower stats in order to get a more balanced player or it is better to boost the higher stats to make the player even better than their opponents ? The answer is not easy. In a general way, players tend to follow the second option because most of the times the higher attributes are also the most important ones according to the player’s position. For example: Messi has a low defending stat because he doesn’t need it to play well on his position. It is natural that players try to improve his attacking attributes.
But some times it can be different. When a player plays in a position and in a formation in which the importance of the various attributes is not so uneven, it may be better to try to balance the player. Let’s look to the example of Diego Alves. He is a wonderful goalkeeper but there are many people that doesn’t like to play with him because his positioning is poor. In these cases, it makes all the sense to apply a style to improve his positioning instead of his reflexes and diving that already are incredibly good.
To choose a chemistry style according to the players’ attributes is something very personal. It depends of who is choosing.
FUT 14 Chemistry Style – Our Suggestions
We are pretty sure that, even before all the explanations, there are many people that still need help to choose the right chemistry style to their players. That’s why we added this chapter to help people to take that decision.
We made our suggestions only according to the positioning, because price is not something very important to most of the players, because it is impossible to show the right style for every players and because the play style is something very personal. Don’t forget that our suggestions are only suggestions. You can have a different opinion.
In our opinion, the importance of the goalkeeper’s attributes follow this order: reflexes, diving, handling, positioning, speed and kicking. In that way, and since there are no chemistry style card that boosts both reflexes and diving, our choice goes to ‘Glove’. It improves the diving, handling and positioning.
All the other cards boost at least speed or kicking, attributes of less importance to us. That’s why we think that the ‘Basic’ card could be a good choice many times.
Every one should know that defending and heading are crucial to every CB. Some times, pace is also very important. That’s why we think that ‘Sentinel’ and ‘Anchor’are two best cards to apply in a CB.
The first one should be used on the central CBs playing in 5xx formations or in defenders with high defensive work rate and low attacking work rate. The second one should be applied to the other players.
RB, LB, RWB, LWB
The fullbacks are defenders that can attack by the wings. They should have good defending, pace and passing stats in order to be able to do it well.
The style ‘Shadow’ is the most recommended card to these players. However, if you a crossing abuser, you may prefer applying the ‘PowerHouse’ style.
It is not easy to choose which chemistry style to apply to a defensive midfielder because it depends of his role on the team and which formation you are using.
One of the most common problems of the CDMs are their pace. Most of them are are too slow. In that cases, the card ‘Shadow’ my be very useful. However, we still believe that ‘Backbone’ and ‘Powerhouse’ are the best cards to the players playing in this position.
Also to this position, the choice of the style depends of many factors.
To most of the players, ‘Artist’ and ‘Maestro’ styles would be perfect. If you love long shots, ‘Deadeye’ is a good card.
The ‘Engine’ style is our favourite to apply in a winger.
However, depending of other factors, they could be better with the ‘Catalyst’.
Depending of your play style, there are five chemistry styles that can be applied to a forward:
– ‘Finisher’ to who plays as a reference in the opposite box;
– ‘Hawk’ to who also wants mobility;
– ‘Hunter’ to who plays in counter and doesn’t like to cross to the box;
– ‘Marksman’ to the skiller;
– and ‘Sniper’ to who apply in very fast forwards and in a play style without many crossings.
Remember that our suggestions were based only in the players’ positions. When choosing a FUT 14 chemistry style, you should look to the formation, attributes and style’s prices.
