How it looks ingame:

With the wide midfielders playing more central than they should and for some reason the LCM and RCM play like wingers.

How it should look:

It would be great to have such a team with someone like Pjanic in a Pirlo-esque role and 4 midfielders in front of him, with the wide players actually on the sidelines would make great attacking options.



EA PLS FIX.

    Tbh ea ruined the 3 atb formations , its all about the 4231 unfortunately.. i use to run the 352 but then i started to realize how many little girls like to run the 4231 cause they would easily destroy me with that formation so i was forced to work with another formation.. but luckily im able to work with the 451, you should give it a go or do what every noob does and just run the 4231 and forget the 3 atb formations

    The 532 could probably work similair, but that one has a top spot in the visually unpleasing formations right below the 4321 and the 451

    I completely agree. Shame that it doesnt work right.

    IMO the closest you are going to get to having a player in a Regista role that is not horribly exposed is a 4141, I'm using it at the moment with Kroos as a Regista. It is working rather well with him having a huge amount of assists through Lewandowski.

    That said I might have more of a play with the 3142 having the wingers stay wide and coming back on defense which should allow for the wider play you mentioned above.

    I don't even know how they screwed the 3142 so bad

    thing is very few people experiment because they dare not risk losing. im pretty sure if you out in the time with all the custom variations , instructions etc, you could get close to what you want. Just the same way that you can make 4231 play very different with different tactics.

    Nowadays its copy some youtuber who tells you want the "best" everything is ....Id rather lose finding out what works for me

    Why is it still not possible to play with this formation like it's intended?

    They ruined 4-3-1-2 as well. Instead of sitting behind the strikers, the cam plays left mid. Took me over a month to adjust to a new formation. Finally settled in 4-2-2-2 or 4-4-2(2).

    3 at the back formations dont work in this game simply because they dont play out like they should.


    The fullbacks/LM/RM are lost.
    The centrebacks are not wide enough when you are in possession of the ball .

    And the CDM does not drop down when the fullbacks/LM/RM go forward .


    A CDM in 4231 will never have same role as a CDM or CM in a 3 at the back formation IRL.
    While in fifa a CDM will act the same in every formation, there is only so little you can tweak.

    I used to love 5212 with overlapping fullbacks...but now they're dead in the second half....big stamina problem.

    Shambles when 532 is the closest I can probably get.

    Played around with 5 atb formations yesterday for a bit and while the width the wingers provide is great, the wingbacks get forward a bit too late. They seem to wait till you have crossed the halfway line.

    Although Quincy Promes would make a spectacular LWB.

    They broke 4-3-1-2 as well. Plays like a 4-4-2 with the cam playing left midfield.

    As EA aren't going to fix it anyway, trying to make something similair myself might be a fun thing to work with.

    So this is what I want
    3142.png

    Key players:

    CDM:
    The regista, the Pirlo of the team. Where every attack starts and where the attack of the opponent ends. Having him between the defence and midfield would be essential

    The wide midfielders:
    Workhorses, going up and down all game, providing width. Would be a good thing if they stay on one line with the CMs.

    What's probably the closest thing ingame

    How do we fix this?

    I've been playing 3-5-2 with my fitness team for the last week and it has the same problem of hamsik spending more time at LAM than CAM. Which is annoying because I'm using that formation over 4-2-2-2 for the sole purpose of having hamsik at cam to take advantage of his 5* weak foot.
    Aside from the wandering CAM i'm actually enjoying the switch to 3-5-2, i get caught out every now and again with a through ball but that happens regardless

    If you added everything they broke with this game to the title, it would be a page long😂

    There are enough threads on other issues. I'm trying to keep formations covered. :#

    I disagree, ive moved from 4231/4411 to 3142 and i think its a great formation.

    Had one of my best weekend leagues using this formation and even better found it pretty fun too
