So guys, it's the end of this Fifa. I'm really curious, what formation did you guys end up with and liked most?

I can't decide honestly, I have tried so many and liked so many. For me the 433's were the best, with the 433(4) and 433(5) on top, followed by 433(2). The other 2 I didn't try.

Have tried a lot of other formations and had short periods of succes with them, but never consistent.

    Really enjoyed 4321 after I got used to it (haven't played since like June though so who knows what could've changed by now :D )

    I don't even know honestly. I'm near unbeatable when I use the 4411, must be because it's so solid defensively, which is good as I'm terrible at defending on this game. Plus if you pick your attackers and wingers carefully in this formation you're set. It's not a formation that I use a lot though unfortunately as I tend to want my wingers higher up the field.

    4411 90%


    occasionally 433-2

    Rarely 4231-1

    Used to 4312 but found the lack of width boring

    I don't see how this is a formation that is solid in defense. It's a nice formation if you want to play nice possession play, but if you are chasing a game when you are behind I think it will be a struggle. I have used 4231(2) a lot lately and it's amazing to play with when you are 1-0 up, because you can set the pace. But when you are behind it's a struggle.

    433(2) as I like having a holding midfielder in any lineup that I use.

    Liked 433(4) the most for a while but it didn't suit the teams I wanted to make, so played mostly 4321 and switched to 433(4) often in game if things weren't going as planned.

    After each game started to turn into a chess match for me because of defensive opponents I switched to 3421 and haven't looked back. Great formation and you create so many chances. Requires some proper defending though.

    433(5) is my favourite followed by 433(2).

    My most consistent and successful is the 4231(2), other formations like 4231, 4411, and 442(2) have been very successful too.

    I ended up with 4231 and 41212 teams, two formations I despised for the majority of the year, my fav formation is 4141 though

    41212-2 or 433-4 as it is a competive advantage for how the game works.

    Though i really like wide formations like 4411, 442 and 352 but they simply are not as viable to play in divisions.

    Using this since 2 days back and is finally winning again Cos i can't defend in the box and the extra CB helps a lot and the formation overload midfield and help win the ball. I surrender the flanks to opponent though.

    4411, 4312 and 4231 have been the most effective for me

    For me FUT has progressively got worse. 15 and 16 are both attack heavy, and favours the 3 pacey forward style of play. Heavily biased towards counter attack and quick turnarounds.

    Previously I'd use most of the formations because I build a variety of teams often with lower rated less OP players. I used to maintain a good winning average but not anymore.

    I think to consistently win on 15 and 16 you need to have a team that abuses the mechanics. So attacking players with pace, skills, agility, balance etc.

    I know Joe Fifa will come on and say "I win with 65 pace attackers blah blah blah" but the evidence is clear from the people I play almost every game. Even those that do use a slower attacker are usually the ones that spend all game doing the 3 OP easy to apply skill moves.

    EA have destroyed this game.

    I always will be a false 9 player.

    Not seeing as much 4-3-3 (4)/4-3-1-2/4-1-2-1-2(2)/4-3-2-1 though as I thought; that must be 90% of my opponents.
