It’s important to take the following information lightly, as these leaks are subject to change prior to FIFA 23’s release. Nonetheless, these changes are quite massive and they would certainly shake up the Ultimate Team mode.

It seems the chemistry rework would eliminate individual player chemistry and a team chemistry rating of up to 100, with a star rating system to determine chemistry. Weaver suggests that a squad can reach up to three stars for maximum chemistry.

How chemistry will be determined in this new system remains to be seen but the leaker does reveal another vital bit of information in that every nation and league will allow for chemistry between players. This would be a huge change for the Ultimate Team game mode in FIFA 23 that would open the door to an infinite number of squad building possibilities.
