What formation do you use?

I make a lot of this sort of thread, but hey, it's a fifa forum!

So, I am wondering what formation people use and if they get goals out of anyone but their striker?

I have 433 (2) ATM with a team that should be getting me goals galore, but along with me being average at the game, I feel like the formation doesn't help.

LW Neymar 8 games 2 goals
RW Bale 8 games 2 goals
ST Ronaldo 15 games 13 goals
A rotation of midfielders have 3 goals in 8 games between them.

Help me!

    Just thought (a very obvious thought) maybe I should go 2 striker.
  • Go 4-3-2-1, would work wonders with those, essentially 3 strikers. Got to ensure a balanced midfield though

    I use 4-3-1-2 and the CAM scores the most :D

    Midfielders I have are:
    Kroos
    Rakitic
    IF Krychowiak
    Modric
    IF Medunjanin

    I had that happen for me in a couple of the drafts I did!

    I could sell Bale and Neymar, change to 4312 and splash on a legend CAM like Hagi or Rui Costa!

    I was always 433 on 15, usually 433(2). But was finding that my midfield was getting completely swamped by high pressure tight formations on 16. I swapped to 4312 and I find it's much better for this years game.

    For the people that use 4312, how do you balance your midfield 3?

    In terms of Defensive stats, attacking stats and work rates? :)

    Sorry for asking a lot :D

    i just think with the new mechanics that midfield is where you can win or lose games.

    I had same issue as you in that I had wingers to replace. So in one team I just moved Lucas to RF, and got Di Maria for CAM. Actually started winning games again lol. I would just move Bale to RF if I was you.

    I've done exactly that, moved bale to RF and put him striker with Ronaldo.

    Just need to work out how to balance the midfield and who to get CAM

    Basically stikking with full BBVA so may get a legend CAM or James

    If you go legend CAM first choice has to be Rui. HE is unreal in game and he give Ronaldo a green link. Second choice probably Deco, for chem reasons and he is nasty too.

    Loved Rui Costa is fifa 14! Would definitely be my first choice!

    Do you know what a fair price is on Rui and Deco? @Pugzilla

    I haven't watched Deco but Rui was deep into the 5's earlier in the week. I saw a Rui go on bids for 555k on like Tuesday. I paid 605 for mine and he is worth every virtual coin.

    4312 - 2 Box to Box midfielders out wide, defensive sided CM in middle. Possession IG. Plays like a dream.
