FIFA 22, FUT and the value of collective

The Chemistry value is the essential element for the construction of your team and its evolution in the FUT (FIFA Ultimate Team) mode of FIFA 22. Indeed, if the beginner players focus on the cards, the Chemistry level will be the key factor in the creation and evolution of your dream team. Thus, it is the value that will prevent you from really using everything and anything in card but which will also be a direct representation of the good construction of your eleven.



Do not hesitate to consult our various FUT guides for more information on the Ultimate Team mode of FIFA 22.

How does Chemistry Value work in FUT?

The collective on FUT corresponds more or less to the level of synergy between the different players of a formation. Thus, in order to have a good level of collective in your team, it must have the following elements:

  • Players playing in their main position
  • Specific synergies between nearby players (connected by a link)

The individual collective (at the level of the player) therefore begins with his position. If an attacker is placed in midfield, he should see his collective level drop, thus limiting his values.

Note that it is possible to use FUT items to change the position of your player. However, each change leads to the loss of this element, causing a relatively high cost (several thousand credits) especially at the start of the season. In addition, the possible positions are limited, a MG will not be able to pass BU via a permanent change of position. On the other hand, it is possible during the game, to move a player to limit the penalty linked to his position, or to modify his position via your personal tactics.



But the collective value will also evolve if the links between the players are positive. To obtain a positive link, both players must have:

  • Of the same nationality
  • Play in the same club
  • Or evolve in the same league

The value of global collective will therefore be composed of the total of the collectives of each player. A score lower than 80 (out of 100) indicates that players are badly placed or that the links are too often red.

Exceptions via special Icons and Fut Heroes cards

Again, there are exceptions with Maps Icons and FUT Heros Cards, new to FIFA 22. Icon Cards can be linked with any card in the game. Thus, the link will be at least yellow with an Icon Card, allowing much more flexibility within of your FUT training.

As regards the FUT hero cards, the latter will create a strong link with all the cards of the same championship as it. Thus, David Ginola's card will give a strong link with Renato Sanches, even if the latter does not play for the same club and they do not have the same nationality.

The collective, what importance on FUT in FIFA 22?

As in previous editions, the Chemistry value is the most important element of FIFA 22 FUT mode. Indeed, a bad score will decrease the value of your cards and thus reduce your work of optimizing your players to nothing.

Indeed, the styles placed on your players make sense only if the card has 10 individual collective. For example, a Hunter element will not give a +10 boost in speed without 10 in collective, but a limited total. Additionally, your substitutes also lose a style bonus if the team's overall chemistry is not at 10.



  • FIFA 22, FUT and the value of collective
    Although several players are not in their primary position, the overall chemistry of this team is 100 thanks to nation synergies. Also note the Icon card which allows links with all the cards.

We notice on the example above, that players from several different leagues cohabit without problem (yellow link) because of the same nationality. That's why a good card on FUT is also rated because of its country. The more the country has good players across different leagues, the easier it will be to use players from that nation. On this subject, you can consult our guide to learn how to identify a Meta player on FUT 22.

Therefore, it is essential to focus on the value of collective rather than spending hours buying and farming new player cards.

Advice to improve the collective

Since the collective is obtained by placing the players in their real position (unless you make a change) and according to the different synergies between the cards, it is best to follow the following advice:

  • Promote FUT teams made up of players from the 5 major European leagues or major nations on FIFA 22
  • Use link-limiting formations on your maps where synergy is difficult
  • Anticipate your future eleven according to your current cards for the collective

Also note that it is possible to improve the collective score via coach's choice if he shares the same nationality or championship as the majority of the players. But it is also possible to win collectively via loyalty score : as soon as a player has participated in 10 matches within the club, his individual collective score will be increased by one point.



The best formations for the collective

Since it is possible, via your personal tactics, to play in a totally different formation from that of your base team, it is important to use formations that limit your links in order to improve your collective.

Thus, the best formations to increase the collective on FIFA 22 are generally:

  • A basic 4-3-3 or a variation of the 4-3-3
  • A 4-2-2-2 if you have no player on the wings (allows you to link BUs/CMs in groups of 3)
  • A 4-5-1 if your wingers and full-backs have strong links

If at first glance, the value of collective seems to be a brake on the creativity of teams in the FUT mode of FIFA 22, the latter quickly becomes an excellent exercise for players. Thus, you will learn to quickly master it, both for your teams and for the realization of DCE.
