I F'n give up

1
I have literally tried every single formation this year and while some play good for 2 or 3 games, I can not find a formation that feels right and my team plays consistently well. Part of the issue is the F'n lag in the online games. Wholly crap it is bad. Anyone else having an issue finding a formation that fits your play this year??

    I used to like playing with wingers but have switched to the infamous 4321

    if you (literally) couldnt beat them, join them.

    does help with some neat passing round the box and runs from the cam

    There isn't a formation that fits your play mate.

    The meta is ptb, Auto defence, counter with 2 or 3 formations.

    Don't try and play your way otherwise your already at a huge disadvantage.

    No, I refuse to ever play PTB or auto defend. I'd rather just quit playing than join the legion of douches out there.

    I like your style, but unfortunately fifa seem hell bent on making everyone play this way.

    Yeah, I prefer the wide formations but I just can't get clicking with any for an extended period of time.

    I am playing 442 and damn well sticking to it! Results may not always be great, but I just wanna enjoy the game so will play my way.

    OP, do you have any formations you like more than others?

    I play 4312 normally solid defensively and when attacking your strikers make runs pulling his defenders from your cam

    I struggled i used to like 433(2) and this fifa i liked 41212 with lm rm i like to play wide cut in ect ect i heard people talking about 352 so i thought id try it at first i lost most games but once you learn player positions how the formation works its a cracking formation,now some games when i attack i seem to have so many options who and were to pass to but also defensively seems pretty good as long as you dont drag you back three forward.

    Qualified for my first WL in 18. Regretting it now, every game has been a struggle. 10+ shots per game, all blocked or magical clearances/ auto tackles from defenders that come out of nowhere. And then get countered and its a goal.

    auto defend fifa17/18 is the end of this game, but this is a method to playing children and earn money for EA ;)

    I agree with the above really struggled finding a formation used 4312 most of 17 but packed some good wingers this year Willian, IF Sterling and Martial and now bought Sane for a potential potm and have gone to 352. Once your used to it it is very fun. You struggle against a 433 due to width but narrow formations play straight into 2 cdm and 3 cb so is great. You do need some wingers with h or at least m defensive workrates though as they need to get involved. Worst case you can outscore your opponent!

    I guess I'll give this one a go again. Nothing else is working. Any tips on CT's?

    Yep, each year EA seem hell bent on narrowing the skill gap. it's s No surprise that 90% absolutely hate playing th is game.
  • Ok, tried 352 for 3 games so far

    Game 1 (No lag) W 3-0 Rage Quit 12'
    Game 2 (No lag) W 3-0 Rage Quit 24'
    Game 3 (Major Lag) W 4-2 Full Time. Went down 2-0 first 12 minutes but came back to win.

    This formation is fun to play. May stick with it for a while.

    auto defending is just a complete joke, back to 17 again playing a person in attack and the cpu in defence.
