    No. Maybe a time restriction (ie can't change formation until halftime). Changing formation midgame is one of the biggest keys to victory.

    No formation changes and no subs until halftime would be great

    Great idea. Only forced changes such as subs because of injuries/red cards and formation changes because of red cards otherwise at halftime.

    There is not a single coach in the world that says right before kick off “Wait!!! Lets quikly change our formation to 41212 narrow, the **** with you wingers, go try and find your luck in central striker position or something”

    So actual no manual pause. That could be a nice idea. I mean you check and tie your shoelaces, so you just have to check and make sure you have enough battery in your controller

    I seriously don't get why it bothers you guys that much!
    And honestly: Allowing formation change only after halftime is BS. When I see that my formation doesn't work against a good opponent I change it after 20 minutes already.

    I pause at kick offf and go from 532 to 4312, matthaus cb cost me 720k, his cm card costs 1.4 million. Do i spend an extra 700k to please my opponent or pause at kick off? Thats right i pause, and then when i score i dab. It makes my balls tight knowing theres folk out there squeezing there joy pads with anger while watching the clock tick down

    Yeah, this is the thing. We have to live with the 1st minute changes as it's totally a legitimate thing to change after 20.

    Anyway, I'm with you - I don't see the big deal. I'm not one who does it by the way.

    But IRL the players also don't become slower or weaker or less skillful because you put them as striker instead of a wide forward.

    In some cases they might. Play a random winger at CM or CAM for example, their positioning would be well off. Also, wingers tend to be suited to only being pressed from one side by a fullback. If they’re struggling to find any space they lose their composure and their passing will suffer. I’ve seen it with Ben Arfa at Newcastle. He wanted to play through the middle, but he was so much more effective on the wing since he had so much more space to work with. Put him in the middle and he’d never find a yard of space and couldn’t pass it to save his life.

    Agree with this. Also chemistry changes need to apply.

    Sure that's due to their unfamiliarity with positioning, which isn't programmed into FIFA, the way FUT is set up it's not exactly going for realism, so I'm not sure what the point is trying to compare it with real life.

    Something has to be made about the constant pausing at the start of the game to change formation

    So stupid. You play with someone uses the wings a lot, you need to adjust your play to deal with it. If you wait till half time you may lose already.

    Its not tactical adjustments 95% of the time its to cheat chem and get fast players central

    No point in locking formations (that's not realistic) - just revamp the chem system, or enforce the chem system in-game.

    That's the only sensible solution - until then we'll have to put up with all the unimaginative sheeple first min-changers, who enjoy dabbing following a ping pong fest.

    Just do what PES do, as soon as a player is not playing in their natural position their ratings receives a penalty, however the more you play that player in that position the more they will improve until eventually it becomes a new natural position.

    Although that would make people hold onto their players for longer, which probably isn't what EA wants as they want to encourage trading to make people spend.

    pausing at the start is as realistic as CHEMISTRY CARDS position change cards etc THE WHOLE GAME IS NON-REALISTIC

    how is no subs or formations until half time REALISTIC it is not

    I APPLAUD THE PAUSE AT START OF THE GAME it undermines EA BS system of CHEMISTRY POSITIONS etc that requires people spend MONEY To make the team "playable"
