  • In Fifa 13 Ultimate Team, what defines formation compatibility? Tomasz Łazarowicz

    In Fifa 13's Ultimate Team mode, every player (card) has a preferred formation. Every squad is playing in some formation (obviously). When a player card is placed in a squad, the formation compatibility is evaluated. It may receive one of three ratings.

    Green Formation Compatibility - Full formation compatibility, provides bonus to Chemistry. This is only awarded if formations of squad and a given player are exactly the same.

    Orange Formation Compatibility - Formations are somewhat compatible, seems to be neutral to Chemistry.

    Red Formation Compatibility - Formations are too different, gives a Chemistry penalty.

    Now, the rules that decide whether a formation of a player is at least somewhat compatible with the squad's elude me. What are they?

  • The formation needs to be a variation on the preferred formation.

    For example, a player who is suited to a 4-4-2 may work well in a 4-4-1-1 as it is a variation, but not well in a 3-4-3.

  • I know that booster packs are given out to users who have got all possible card drops from a certain game, as stated in the Steam Trading Card FAQ.

  • One of my squad members have Arms Master and with the way Squad Bonus(Rank 6 Arms Master) is displaying the bonus I'm wondering who it affects. The wording and the way it is displayed on Shepards squad bonus abilitys(no green bar to indicate an improvement) made me think it was other members of the party that benefits from the ability. But with the way it is displayed on squad members ability it looks like the squad member benefits from it when it is its own ability. So who benefits from Squad Bonus abilities? Is it all members of the party, only others than the one with the ability

  • Whilst doing some research about backwards compatiblity on the Xbox 360, I found one of my favorite games from the original Xbox, Yu-Gi-Oh The Dawn of Destiny, was backwards compatible. I found a small game shop in town that had this game so I proceeded to buy it. I inspected the disc before purchasing, there are no noticeable scratches, scuffs, or anything else that would indicate a problem... that provide backwards compatibility? I'm about to go all "office space" on my Xbox if I can't figure this out.
