    I play 41212 narrow find it best formation against 4231 the cam splits the 2 cdms... but yeah it's all u seem to play it's so boring and repetitive squad battles is more interesting than wl.... it's all pass around until u get a lucky bobble or bounce time finesse abuse unfortanly it gets players no matter how bad they are a undeserved win n why all the sheep do it.

    This is a good summary really

    I utterly dominated a guy last night and lost. He had three playes as described above and scored two ridiculous timed finishes with Son. Like directly from a pass, it was totally unrealistic.

    433(4) is my go to formation this year. Two midfielders to defend, a CAM for attacking through the middle and wingers for wide play. It's the most balanced one so far. Especially against all these AI defenders.

    433(4) for me find a lot of success against more popular formations. Balanced midfield is key. I do switch to 4231 narrow however if I'm struggling to hold possession in game or struggling to create chances. I tend to struggle against 451 or 4132 but rarely come against these

    I always finish gold2/3 anyway no matter which formation I use :D
    I tried 4231 wide and narrow, 41212(2), 5212, 433(4), 4411...
    4231 is very solid in defence but a bit boring in attack.
    I like 41212(2) but i need fullbacks on balanced to have some width...and i get murdered on counter attacks.
    433(4) is probably the most fun formation, the cam really shines in this formation.

    442 with all players on 'Stay back on attack' and 'Come back to defence' is a perfect counter to it.

    Yes and I have no shame about it as it is the best formation on the game, and it offers a lot of options on the ball, so it is good for keeping the ball and controlling the game.

    Yeah. 90% of my opponents in the wl have used 4231 for the last few weeks. It’s a dull formation to use and duller still to play against

    I like it, either that or 41212-2 seems to be. Plenty of effective formations against it tho

    I actually don’t know how people can like 4231...How do people not get annoyed that their LAM and RAM hug the touch line and are so hard to get involved in the play?!

    I play either 4231, 41212(2) or 4222. All depends on how the game is playing and if im creating enough or not.

    But yes 9/10 players use 4231 and all play the exactly same way, pass out wide, back inside to cdm then pass it back to wide cam for first time finesse.

    I play either 433(4) or 451. Both capable of beating the mega teams with the right players

    I've had it in my quick tactics since day one. Playing one formation all game is not the way forward this year imho.

  • I use various 4-3-3 formations. Usually 4-3-3 (2) (the one with 2 CMs and 1 CDM.

    I still find someone using 433 tends to play the ugliest. Chip through balls into the corner and smash it across the goal constantly.
