I know the formation and style of play was very popular in FIFA 17, so people are trying the same thing now, but really... dont people get tired of playing the same old lets smash the ball up to the CAM and two ST's waiting for the ball and then a quick counter attack?

My last 5 matches in seasons have ALL been this style of play.

It's just so stressful and boring defending the same, over and over again...

Does nobody enjoy building up your attack with lovely passes and them smashing it in with the likes of Mario Gomez?

    Just keep the ball from them, they make mistakes and you have to take your chances

    I cant stand it either, they try to frustrate you and you and to frustrate them more.

    Don't know how ppl can play without cdms this year tbf (talking about 4321 and 4312 obv), just switched to 4231 (2) after some really bad results and dominated my way to winning the DKT

    @DoD_Jester , 4411 works just fine against the boring counter attacks.

    Won my last 5 in a row in seasons, with Mario Gomez scoring 10.

    Gonna give 4411 a go here soon. 4312 isn't bad but it's so congested in the final 3rd

    8 in a row in dkt right now (you can win twice a cycle now) but I do plan to try 4411 soon

    I’m enjoying the 41212(2) with strikers on balanced to hold up play and full backs overlapping this year open things up a lot more. Trying the ole go to press back line and get in behind created a ridiculous gap between the midfield and strikers
