    M18 Chemistry Guide [ARCHIVE]

     

    Welcome to another year of Madden everyone!! If you've missed any of what chemistry is/does - check out THIS LINK for last year's full write up. Without further ado: 

     

    Chemistry 101 - Understanding Chemistry:

    • Only players in the starting lineup help to activate their specific chemistry's and their respective stat boosts. Other players that are depth/bench will receive the boost but won't contribute towards activating it. 

      Example: If I have Tier 1 "Go Deep" Chemistry activated with Odell Beckham Jr.Julio Jones, & David Johnson in my starting lineup, only those three players help activate and receive the boost to PBK, RLS, and TAD. If, however, Tyreek Hill is my WR4 (depth) and he's on the field, he will also get the boost to PBK, RLS, and TAD but will not contribute towards activating it (or add towards the next Tier). If I only have Odell Beckham Jr. in my starting lineup and Tyreek Hill is a WR4, "Go Deep" Chemistry is NOT active (only 1 of the necessary 3 players for Tier 1 are active), and therefore NEITHER player will receive the "Go Deep" boosts.

    • Which positions contribute towards chemistry?
      On Offense: 
      QB, HB, FB, WR1, WR2, WR3, TE1, TE2 LT, LG, C, RG, RT
      On Defense:
      DT1, DT2, LE, RE, MLB1, MLB2, LOLB, ROLB, CB1, CB2, CB3, FS, SS
      On Special Teams:
      K, P

    • When a specific chemistry is activated, your players will receive the stat boosts as shown in the table below. This doesn't necessarily mean that your players' OVR will be boosted though. The reasoning can best be explained by MrJohnson_4's comment HERE. So don't worry - your player is receiving the boosts, it just may not be enough to give them a boost to their OVR.

    • Team Chemistry - if your starting players are from the same team (i.e - New York Giants), those teammate players will receive stacking boosts to AWR and PRC for each Tier (max 4).

      Example: If I have Odell Beckahm Jr., Landon Collins, and Dominique Rodgers Cromartie all in my starting lineup, activating Tier 1 chemistry, each will receive a +1 stat boost to both AWR and PRC. Each subsequent tier adds an additional +1 stat boost to those two stats.

    • Team Training Chemistry - activated via team specific items (i.e. - coaches, stadiums, light uniforms, and dark uniforms). Each of those 4 items are upgradeable into 3 tiers, therefore 12 Tiers are possible. 
      Please note: tiers only boost/stack for players of that team.
      Thanks jmellerEA for the info!!

      Example: If I have all NYG Team Items fully upgraded to Tier 3 each, all my NYG players will receive all the boosts through Tier 12. If I have 4 different team items (non-upgraded), each player from those respective teams will only receive Tier 1 boosts.

    • Team Leader Chemistry - like Team and Team Training Chemistry, this chemistry only boosts players from the specific team that the Team Leaders that are activating the chemistry are from (per card art)

      Example: If I have all NYG Team Leaders in my starting lineup, each and every NYG player on my team will receive their respective stat boosts.

    With Primetime Protector listed and Situational Pass Rusher listed, but no release of anyone with these chess as of yet.  I wonder if anyone is coming out with these.  

    They were listed in the release notes of a mid-season patch. They may have been removed from the game / never put in. At this point, doubt we'll see them now.
    Quote from smithaz1981 >>

    What’s the point then of getting those cards with one chem when you can have two?

    I haven't played in some time but some of the single chem cards may just flat out outperform those with dual chems. But generally speaking, depending on the Tier you can get each of the chems, I would think it's pretty safe to almost always opt for the dual chem player cards.

    I'd imagine a Ryan Shazier will show up at some point... was a little surprised at the Sony card but now that I understand the story behind it I see it.... would be no different then me making a card for one of the McCourty twins who are probably the most popular Rutgers players to hit the NFL in recent memory.

     

    I'd probably make a Jets player though and most likely this year it would have ended up being Jamal Adams since it took forever for him to get an upgrade with his Rookie Standout TOTY followed by his Easter card.

     Hold up!!! Are you an RU alum too!?
     Not quite  but I went for a few years and partied there for a few more before finally moving out of state.
     Noice! I was there personally for the golden Schiano years with Brian Leonard, Ray Rice, Kenny Britt and the McCourty Twins.
     Yeah thats when I went back... 2004-05 then parted 05-07... I was actually in that club off George the night Ito hit the FG over Louisville
     You mean my Facebook friend Jeremy Ito? LOL. Ito was the best...wonder if he's still the Big East leader in points scored
