I have allways played wingplay formations, because i like to use fast Wingers etc.

But im just so sick and tired of losing to those Narrow formations.

Last game i played 4411, I was under 0-3 at the 50th min, I got so f.... Mad at the opponet and switched to 41212 (2) in rage and spammed the 1-2 passes.

He didnt get one shot at my goal after the change and i won 4-3. I was all over him.

After that i sold my wings and changed gameplay. Now it's my turn to win.

End of story.

    You need to be a really good player to make wingers work on this game imo. Shame really.

    If you like wingplay, you could also try the 5-2-1-2 formation. Plays just like the 4-1-2-1-2 in attack but you have wingbacks rather than full-backs, and they really push on and feel more like wingers to me.

    As mentioned above, 4231 is good to use, assuming you know what you’re doing - but don’t switch in game like the rest of these guys, have some pride and take the hit on Chem.

    I hit Elite 3 this weekend, probs could have got El2 but got screwed by my GK in a few games.

    I changed up from 41212(2) to 4411 and won so many more games in WL, must suit my style more, I found it easier to keep possession whilst playing good football, had lots of rage quits due to the domination

    The best players switch between 41212 and 4231.

    It’s no difference to real life if the formation isn’t working just tweak it.

    The assisted passing is ridiculous it takes no thought at all this is what happens when ea cater to people with no football brain and no thumbs but i won't be like them I've always used wide formations i don't need to spam 1 two passes and place my whole team in the middle and let the ai defend for me.

    The only people that play that way are the same people that abuse fifa every year and they watch youtube videos because they suck at the game its just like the passing these people want their hands held none stop scruffs.

    The "new role" or good coding of full backs has made a whole new version of 41212-2. I play both of them on balanced, and you can actually play some proper football and be effective at the same time.

    I played 41212 2 today for the first time this Fifa, needless to say it was good, just dominated through the middle

    Only thing that annoys me is RCM and CAM constantly switching positions.

    I think the reason people playing narrow is becouse of the camera settings and becouse you cant see all your players movment its a huge mess.

    Unless EA fix this people will keep playing narrow unrealstic tactics.
    I cant think how many times i lost the ball passing to my wingers becouse i had no clue they start a run to the box or on the line...

    Co op camera is very hard to play with so the game is in dead end atm imho.

    Agreed, the Co op camera gives the birds eye view but you are to far away to actually be able to see :/

    I play 4411 with my RM on 8 chem and a cm on 7 chem.

    Got 18-10 this weekend, first WL this year. Should have done a lot better too.

    Nothing better than smashing these people with wing play.

    41212 sucks the fun out of fifa. Ping pong passing.

    it's too inconsistent, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't, narrow ping pong passing works every game

    also it actually take skill to attack through the wings, you don't need it playing direct with narrow formation

    This is not what causes that. On both free form and stick to position the CAM is often defending for you as RCM, while your RCM is in the middle of their box. It's a known bug with the formation.

    41212(2) was the formation I play ok at.. not sure if formations are kinda affected by updates, as I changed to 3421 (with a new team) loved it.. then i let in as much goals as I scored.. played a more defensive formation 5221.. but I felt it was boring... now after the last patch I thought I’ll give it a try again with my new team... wow it feels good and don’t feel exposed.. Love it now

    Last year I constantly made elite w cheap 433-2 teams.
    These year wing formations just aren't as effective. At least for me.

    because AI is stupid sometimes and it doesn't defend the space and follow the ball/player (if your opponent is using free form)

    nerfed shielding is a part of it, if you try to dribble in the box you get bullied so you have to pass and look for the openings (like in handball)

    Having used a lot of formations this year, I definitely think that 41212 (2) is the most effective. Anything with wingers is generally pointless - LM/RM are too far back, LW/RW are too far wide and LF/RF are miles ahead of midfield. Having a CAM and two strikers is by far the best since its a tight, but not too isolated, triangle.
