FIFA 16 News Roundup #40

We’ve made it to 40 FIFA 16 news roundup posts folks.

In this week’s roundup we will cover all the FIFA 16 highlights for the past week and the chemistry/fitness glitch that was recently discovered by the FUT community.

Earlier this week, FIFA youtuber, Nepenthez, with the help of a few members from the fifa forums and r/fifa noticed that non-day-1 players (IN-Forms, TOTS, TOTY, Transferred, Upgrades, etc) in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team get their fitness reset to max after each match without using fitness cards! The following video will explain and prove the glitch in more details:

Shortly after this fitness glitch video got out, some members of the fifa forums noticed that non-day-1 players, no matter where they played on the field, they would be on 4-base chem, whereas day-1 players could get up to 10 chem as they should. To prove that this glitch actually exists and that it isn’t a hoax, a reddit member named RighteousOnix posted the following video proving that the glitch is in fact real:

From the video above we get the following:

  • that chemistry definitely works
  • that non-day-1 cards gets base chem (4) regardless of what it shows in the pre-match squad screen
  • it might also show that the basic chemistry style is useless (or glitched), as it did not improve dribbling from 85 to 86 on a day-1 card. (3 chevrons = +5 dribbling, so 1 chevron should be 5/3=1.67 dribbling)
  • and to some extent the relation between 1 chevron and IG-stats. 3 chevrons into dribbling equals +5 dribbling.

Here is a graphic explanation made by reddit user, OkejBerg , of the points made above:


Now the real question, did EA Sports knew about this glitch? Because from the look of it, it’s in the game at least since FIFA 14.

If they knew about it and didn’t do anything to fix it they basically sold colored cards that weren’t much better than their original ones, in fact because of this chemistry glitch some of the IN-Forms cards would perform worst that their non-IF cards.
