    41212(2) is the best, just play around with custom tactics until it suits you

    Give 4-2-3-1 first version a try. I was struggling vs my mate before I used that formation.

    I was beating him in over 100 friendly tournaments in fifa 17 using 4-3-3 (4), so I started with that formation in fifa 18, has worked fine in squad battles, not in online mode. This evening I switched to 4-3-2-1 after a reccomendation here on the forum, and I won the next 3 games 4-1, 5-1, 5-2 vs my mate.

    (Edit, sorry I typed wrong up there first, 4-2-3-1 is the formation I meant, NOT 4-3-2-1)

    4-3-2-1 is too exposed defensively
    3-5-2 is better but needs lot of practise and tenchnique
    After trying many i settle for 4-1-2-1-1(2)

    I think they recommended the 4231 to you unless there is another thread

    How better do you consider the narrow to the wide version?

    Had my worst weekend league by far last weekend (17 wins). Using 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 and 3-5-2


    Went back to basics 4-4-2 this weekend and got 21 wins and by far was the most balanced formation VS all the little tricks people try

    Yeah Fineusk: sorry, typo, 4-2-3-1 is the one I was recommended :) going to try that some more for sure.

    352 and 4231 are my favourite to go between in the WL

    433(5) if I play seasons as its a more fun formation for me, but just isn't as effective for my style

    3-5-2 works well but think you need the right players to make it work. Also server lag can make it useless as any formation

    4231 with LM/RM is working best for me. Started out with my favoured 433(2) from last year and I was just getting non stop countered. The two CDMs in 4231 make a huge difference to that.

    About 75% are playing the 41212 (2)
    4231(2) is good with the right players.
