What's the best formation against Ai ?
I used to play in 41212 and the seconde variation but got smashed in my last 3 games in Legendary so I guess it's time to change the formation..

    Im playing 4231. Started playing this yday and won 4 matches on legendary.
    But i dont think that formation will do it for you.
    If you are good or Lucky formation is not a problem

    I've tried the 4231. It is solid defensively and reduces my goals conceded a little bit, but I can't generate any offense. I often lose 1-0 on legendary with this formation. In fairness, though, the CPU defense can get so oppressive with all the blocked shots, interceptions, and brutal tackles the ref lets go, I have trouble generating offense from every formation. Anyway, my point is that is you are even reasonably competent in attack I've found the 4231 might be a good choice because it will give you some stout defensive coverage.

    I've also tried 41212-2. Slightly better attacking than the 4231 but also slightly worse defensive coverage. I like attacking through the middle but it is so darn tough to break down the CPU that way.

    Also used 4321. I've easily had the most attacking success with this formation. You will score and get shots on goal. But defense can be a struggle. I regularly concede 2-3 using this formation on legendary.

    In general, though, I agree with @pafiel . My results have been very similar regardless of formation. I end up usually going back to the 41212-2 because it's what I'm most comfortable using even though I still believe attacking the CPU through the middle is difficult. SB has gotten me to experiment with different formations I wouldn't usually use. Not with any success, but at least I've now used them.

    Thanks i'll give that 4321 a shot.. If I play in counter attack with this formation it shouldn't be hard to defend imo

    4231 is very good especially when they start to press you. Its so easy to create space for your wingers by baiting their full backs with your full backs.

    Try to set it to offensive and pressing
  • I spend a lot of time researching and testing that and based on experience from others and my own the best formation by far is 4-5-1 to use against AI. Before I still lost games on professional level against God squads but as soon as I changed to this formation I immediately beat the AI on world class and a few days later also on Legendary level. It did wonders for my squad battle results but also seems to work quite well against other players though I haven't figured out yet with what formation I go against other players.

    It seems that dominating the midfield against AI is the key and with 5 on the midfield that's exactly what happens. Also this formation brings some repetitive patterns to score from, the most obvious and consistent is in the attacking 3rd bring the ball from one side of the field to the other by 3-4 passes, after the last pass the RWB will make a run in behind and can easily score with a driven shot in the far corner.

    Another 3421 here, the AI can't cope with four wide players.
