Hey guys been away for 2 updates I think now just looking for some formation advice?
Used to play 41212(2) but tried a few games in the dkt earlier and it just didn't feel the same.
I was looking to see what works after patch?
Thinking of using something abit more fun with with men.
How are 442(2) And 4411?
Also see a lot playing 4222?

    That’s still the best formation, 4321 and 4312 also play nicely

    4-2-3-1 is very good.

    4321 is back is it? I thought it became pretty ineffective a few months back

    I wish I was good and patient enough to play it tbh

    4411 is poor on the counter but makes it easy to keep the ball 4222 is easy to keep the ball with but it feels like you can exploit gaps in midfield against it especially if the two cdms aren't that good, 442 (2) is an average formation not that great in attack and needs icons or very good players like futbirthday florenzi or toty kante or modric cdm next to a solid player.

    That’s what I’m rocking at the moment, was 41212 (2) since the start but switched to incorporate 3 CAMs and I love the extra defensive solidity it gives me, if I go behind in the second half I will switch to 41212 (2) again for the extra striker.

    Cheers mate so the narrow compact formations still dominate?

    not always, 41212 is still strong but if you were playing against a 442 or 352 it would best to switch to a 4231 narrow because 41212 narrow against someone who runs down the wings a lot can get exposed, in a 4231 if you have fast wide cams with over 85 pace they can help defend against the wingers.
