The right choice of full-backs can be the secret to a well-balanced squad in FIFA Ultimate Team. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the very best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team full-backs you can buy.

Crafting the perfect Ultimate Team is something that takes fans dozens upon dozens of hours over the year. Swapping and constantly changing to find the right balance of players to suit each individual’s playstyle.

Luckily, we’ve got guides on each position outlining the best FIFA 22 has to offer. This time, it’s the full-backs under the microscope.

Full-back is one of the most underrated positions on the Ultimate Team pitch. On the one hand, they can work wonders defensively as they nullify the threat down the wing. On the other, they can be a secret weapon as they overlap into crossing positions.

FIFA is a game that relies heavily on pace, especially in wide positions, which unfortunately makes some left and right backs nearly unusable in the game’s meta.

With this in mind, these are EA‘s best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team full-backs set to dominate this year’s game.

Best cheap full-backs in FUT 22

If we’re honest, high-rated full-backs that fit the meta do tend to be few and far between, which means the ones that do can be very pricey. This being the case, you may want to look at some cheaper options to get the ball rolling when it comes to the best FIFA 22 Ultimate Team full-backs.

On the left side, Everton’s Lucas Digne has more than enough pace to cope with tricky wingers, while being French should help you with links to other players. For Bundesliga players, Guerreiro of Dortmund has a solid all-around card at a cheap price.

In terms of the opposite side, Denzel Dumfries is a pacy option in Serie A, while Reece James is a solid all-rounder for Premier League squads.

One of these returning features is none other than FUT Hero cards. Here’s everything you need to know about FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23.

What are FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23

FUT Hero cards were a new introduction in FIFA 22 and the concept is meant to highlight incredible players of the past who never quite reached icon status.

EA picked a set of players that shared a common characteristic of leadership and respect for the clubs they played for.

These Hero items are special cards in FUT as they utilize unique chemistry attributes. They offer league-specific chemistry and provide a green club link to any player within the same league.

FIFA 23 players fear Ultimate Team SBCs will be a nightmare to complete

Due to the drastic chemistry changes introduced to FIFA 23, Ultimate Team players are dreading the completion of SBCs.

Published

With major chemistry changes set to impact FIFA 23’s Ultimate Team mode, players are already convinced that completing SBCs will be a nightmare.

With the standard version of FIFA 23 set to arrive on September 30, players are excited to discover what the game’s new features have to offer. EA have been breaking down FIFA 23’s new features across each game mode ahead of the highly anticipated release.

While Ultimate Team fans are excited for FUT Moments, other changes like the ones made to team chemistry have not gone down well with the fanbase. It seems players are worried about the implications this new Ultimate Team chemistry system could have on SBCs.

SBCs have been a staple of the Ultimate Team mode for some time now. These FUT puzzles grant players valuable items and packs to improve squads. In order to earn rewards, players must submit a squad that meets certain criteria. Most SBCs will have a chemistry requirement which makes finding the correct solution a challenge.

With team chemistry set to be a thing of the past in FIFA 23, players are worried that SBCs will be an aggravating experience to complete. As one FIFA fan puts it, “More controllers will be broken trying to complete SBCs than from actual gameplay.”

Previously, players could be asked to submit a squad with a minimum chemistry rating of 80. However, this is no longer possible with FIFA 23’s shift to player chemistry.

A statement from EA confirms that players will be asked to meet new SBC chemistry requirements of either the “Total Chemistry of all Players combined, up to a maximum of 33,” or “Chemistry Points per Player between 0 and 3.”

Players have yet to come to grips with the new system of calculating chemistry, which makes the idea of FIFA 23 SBCs with the new system a daunting task on the horizon.

An example of a FIFA 23 SBC requirement would be for all players in the squad to have a minimum of two chemistry points. Given that players are used to using straightforward chemistry lines, this new system could cause a ton of frustration, especially during FIFA 23’s early days.

A post to the FIFA subreddit highlights most players’ perplexed reaction to a system that according to them, did not need changing: “The system doesn’t make sense and it’s vastly inferior to the previous system.”

FIFA 23 players will have to adjust to a learning curve when it comes to Ultimate Team SBCs, despite the fact that they believe the previous system did not require any changes. One can only hope that no controllers will be damaged in the process.
