Do you pause at the start of the game and change formations?

Interested to see the responses. I never do it because I personally think it’s effort because you have to do all the tactics as well.

Some people think it’s cheap and to some extent it is but is it worth all the players being full chem? Probably.

    I do but only because I had to in the one nation WL. Never did it before that and only do it now because I had to keep some players from that weekend.

    As of Friday I now sub on Salah straight away. I say Friday because I only realised on Friday that he will get the chem of the person he replaces.

    That's not how subs work, subs get 6.25 chem.

    5 chem.

    And no, I don't. I have in the past when I was "tryharding" so as to not be at a disadvantage vs other people who do it, but I hate doing it and it's late in the game.

    Never. And I’ve played in WL with teams with as little as 63 chem and still finished where I always do.

    Yes i do

    I want to play with the players i enjoy playing with. I also have to lots of different leagues and players to hybrid because of the TOTS SBC. I also play 41212(2) and just dont have the coins to buy most of the central version of players i want to play with.

    Just try them off chem for one match. It really makes so little difference. I had Mbappe on 2 and he still banged them in for me.

    It’s a mental thing really, I never change my formation at the start and I’m fine with using my players on 6 or more chemistry.

    lol, that's a dead wrong statement. He gets 6.25 chem (only if your squad has 100 chem) and even less if not

    I do because of the amount of untradeables I have to fit into one team.

    No but early on I did swap CB Lothar & CDM Marcel Becuse the other cards were so much more expensive

    No, it pains me that people cba to build an effective squad from the break, as that’s the whole point to this game mode. Also, does it really matter that tots Neymar is on 10 chem vs 7? My starting 11 has 6 different leagues and about 8 nationalities. 4 players are at 6-8chem but does it really matter to me? The answer is no. Unless your a pro and fut is how you make your living then you are trying way too hard in a game that’s SUPPOSED to be about having fun.

    Nothing more satisfying than making a formation changer first half rage quit.

    Early in the game I did, now I don't need to I've got many icons that it's easy to build a team in my preferred formation, 41212(2) with only Tots Son on 7 chem. 90% of my WL opponents still change. I start Prime Gullit cam and Red Tots De Brunye at RCM, switch them if opponent pauses, so most the time :joy: if not I'll wait until half time etc...

    I had a rule. Change if he the opposition pauses it or change at half time.

    I saw a thread where other people said otherwise but I’ll take your word for it mate. In all honesty I could be subbing on TOTY messi and Ronaldo and it wouldn’t make a difference as I am that bad!

    Pretty sure EA confirmed that a sub would have a maximum of 6.25/6.5 chemistry depending on the squad chemistry.

    I never change formation. Sometimes i do a quick switch of players...like dinho starts at ST at 7 chem and i move him to CAM (otherwise he’d play at 4 chem).

    Yep, change formation and set all my tactics, takes me 20 seconds max to sort it all

    No I have respect for myself, and I have respect for my opponent. Just wastes everyone’s time for so little benefit

    Depends on the formation I’m playing against. If at this stage you’re not countering different formations you’re an idiot

    This might sound weird to most, but the squad / formation i see on the squad screen is how i like it to remain in game. Thats just me though, always been that way since 09!

    I always pause at the beginning for the full 30 seconds to create a little emotion for the match. I usually then get a good spanking
