    Doesn't happen if you actually sort your formations properly in the menus, i've played stupid amount of games and never seen it once.

    That is not true.

    I had my striker(mertens with low/high), with instructions to stay forward play as a cb.

    Next game he was a left midfielder.

    It is random, and annoying as hell.

    That's probably because you haven't gone into the custom tactics and set the positions players for each individual Game Plan, i had this exact argument with a friend of mine who was convinced that it was randomly moving his players to random positions, i forced him to sort out his game plans 1 by 1 and since then he hasn't mentioned it happening once...

    It is happening to the main formation not the attack or defense.

    I have done that. Given position+instructions to every player on every game plan(ultra defensive all the way to ultra attacking).

    Doesn't fix the random position changed

    someone said above if you set you formations correctly then it doesn't happen, that is true ive never had this issue when my set up is correct. but when you sell a couple of you players an change it up slightly just for a game or two then all hell breaks loose! I cant understand how something so basic is so ❤️❤️❤️❤️ up I had Mahrez playing CDM for 60 mins of a game because of this an it laterally drove me insane.

    were 4months into this game, this should NOT be happening esp when its had half a dozen updates already!!

    I'm not one to rant usually but this pisses me off

    Mine is all set up correctly for four different formations and I was using 41212 and all players were out of position. I had used all my pauses and couldn’t change it so it is happening. All last year I had similar problem with that formation

    Something weird happens when you switch player positions after changing tactics and making subs. Not sure what causes it but its very real.

    happened to me today for the first time (only once, luckily), I paused the game and put them in the right positions, did not work ...

    This isn't the issue. At least for me. My players are always in their correct position when I switch to an unchanged gameplan. However, if I then make subs and swap players around in game, sometimes it becomes messed up. Easy fix is to pause it when this happens and swap 2 players around, it'll be fine then, but still a dumb bug.

    When that happens just pause it and swap 2 players around you don't mind playing flipped. I typically just switch my 2 CDMs around.

    this is wrong, it is a glitch in the game, i don't even have to change my individual game plan - if i change something in custom tactics alone - like switching to constant pressure, my players move around randomly

    If its RF and a CDM that swaps and o just pause and swap these two. Then it swaps so that st’s play CDM and cb and CDM plays st and wings. It just so messed up!

    Should record it
