At the start of
FIFA 20 Ultimate Team
, you'll be asked to pick a nationality; after you do so, you’ll be given a chance to select your Ultimate Team players from the players of that nation. The choice is completely yours! But some nations have better players altogether like Italy, Germany, France and Spain.
You can have one
in your team in each of defensive, attacking and midfielder roles, at the start of the game. The nations mentioned above have quality non-rare gold players to build a cheap squad from.
After you’re done with choosing players for your squad, you’ll go to the next stage: Picking a loan player, which thoroughly depends on your strategies and tactics as a manager.
Is he a best or average-rated player? In how many games is he going to play for your team? The choice is yours and you can have your loan player in any of the defensive, attacking, midfielder and goalkeeper roles.

Next is choosing your kit and badge and head for objectives! It is highly recommended that you complete objectives since it’s a great way to get free packs, cards, and coins that in turn, could help you build a better squad.
Some of these objectives are very simple to do like changing formation, getting perfect chemistry links, playing the team of the week, and so on.
If you've played FIFA Ultimate Team before, you should probably know what Chemistry means and how it works. Chemistry is actually the rating that concerns a player’s performance within the team and not as an individual.
Chemistry defines how your players are linked to each other on the field, so it’s a counting factor, especially early in the game, when your players usually have not high stats.
The higher the Chemistry rating is, the better your players cooperate with each other. You can increase Chemistry by choosing players from the same nation, the same league, and the same team, and assigning them the roles they are best fitted into.
You'll also receive one bonus chemistry point for every player that is of the same nationality and league as your manager.

You will also gain bonus chemistry points for having loyalty bonus, which is awarded to any player who have played 10 games for the club. Note that there are two types of Chemistry in FIFA Ultimate Team: Player Chemistry and Team Chemistry.
By now, you surely know about the former; the only thing to add is that it ranges from 0 to 10; the higher this number is, the better a player is fitted to his team. The latter, however, ranges from 0 to 100, though 110 is also reachable! Team Chemistry is an average of the total chemistries of a team players, and when high, can lift the players’ stats by 25%.
Not a separate concept, Links actually show how good the chemistry of your team is and how well your players are connected. There are four types of links, categorized by their color: Red links, yellow links, green links, and perfect-green links. A red link is the poorest link and shows that the two players have nothing in common, be it league, club or nationality.
A yellow link shows that there is some kind of connection between the two players; when two players are from the same league or nationality, they are yellow-linked. If two players share two in the league-club-nationality trinity, the link between them will be green, and finally perfect green link happens when two players share whole the trinity.
If two players have a perfect green link, their link color will stay green and their chemistries are not affected, even if they have two red links with two other players. If there is great chemistry in a team, one red link will not affect the overall chemistry, however, if you have one yellow and one red link to any player in your team, that will affect that player’s individual chemistry.
