Thinking about it, all i come up is this and it's completely dominating my 442 :(

Anyone made the jump to 41212? Have you won more because of it?

    I did the switch a few weeks ago, couldnt get on with my old playing style and 4321.. went from div 7 to div 4.. same time played my first WL, ended up one win short of gold 3 :) so worked out nicely for me tbh

    Yep made the switch from 4231 to 41212(2) with the new patch. 4231 seems a lot weaker now and 2ST formations feel better

    Depends how you play the game. To be honest i have done the exact opposite and moved away from it. It is a good system as you have 2 strikers and a CAM behind and you can play 1,2's off each other. The problem is it feels like a very direct system and makes you rush your play sometimes and you can lose possession easy.

    I now play 4222 and i find it much better for keeping possession. I could win div 1 consistently using 41212(2) but since i switched to 4222 i have won in each of my last 7 attempts. Something i could never do with the 41212.....

    I enjoyed the 4231 all of last week, even after patch I thought it was decent.. then Saturdays games it just felt so slow and build up play took forever.

    My last stretch of games reverted back to 4222 which was a bit better and now I’m going to be experimenting a bit this week with other formations again!

    Yes, was using 4231, made the switch to 41212(2).

    Took time to get used and to find perfect players plus custom tactics.


    Box to box CMs are a must (Matuidi,Vidal,Herrera..etc)

    RB/LB balanced - they have to support the LM and RM, using them in every single atack, not for crossing, just for width.

    RCM-Stay back, Stay on edge - you have to get cover to your CBs if you lose the ball in the final third, because your opponent have CAM-ST-ST and really wants quicks 1-2 passes 

    LCM - balanced - he has to be all round midf. Vidal for me is great!

    RM Stay wide,Get in for crosses - someone a little bit stronger, who can cut inside to make a space behind his back to the RB.

    LM Come back on defence - Yes come back to receive the ball and make a simple pass to the LCM or CF.

    CF-False 9. The main man! False 9 for sure if you have a little agillity player like Messi, Dybala ... His role is to drop deeper when needed, to be your playmayker, to make a space for LM,LCM,RM and ST, and when decides to make a run. Hold the ball, don`t rush it.

    ST-Target man (or balanced), Stay central. M/M or M/L working great. He is important part of your building, stay a little closer to the rest of the team, not to be isolated with get in behind.

    I play mainly 4231 because but switch to that or 3421 if I need to push for goals. I also think 41212 is better to destroy average players. 4231 can be passive at times, wich is good if you play against decent players but can become a burden against inferior players that don't know what to do.

    It's my favourite formation since Fifa 17. It's not great defensively though, I'll switch to a more defensive formation to see out a close game.

    What I don’t like about 4222 is that the two strikers are spaced out a lot further from eachother. I prefer them closer to pass and make better runs.
  • I still can't choose between 4-2-2-2 and 4-1-2-1-2 (2).
  • After using several formations after the patch it feels like 4-1-2-1-2 (2) is the best formation for me. The attacking triangle is awesome!
