Found this formation to be the one every single mother son dog baby and postman uses it.

A major reason this game flops is the dull boring community that plays it. I refuse to join them because for all I know I will win games more than I do now but the overkill will soon kick in and it will make me put the controller down like I did fifa 16

Toxic toxic community

    The main reason trash players probably like this formation is that if you use dribbling back, your Ccam acts like 3rd cdm.

    Before patch it was annoying to play against fabinhho and kante, But at least you could punish ptb noobs.

    After patch it’s a pain to play against Ccam aka 3rd Cdm Griezmann And Reus. And even if he overcommits with Reus or Griezmann, his other 8 players are already behind the ball waiting to autoblock and autointercept the ball.

    LMAO WHAT WAS EA THINKING INTRODUCING THIS TACTICS.

    Which form? 4231 with 3 cams or the one with wingers? I'm using the one with 3 cams at the moment to see if it suits me. Not liking it tbh.

    It’s not the formation, it’s the way people use it. When you set both your CDM’s and fullbacks to stay back while attacking and then chase back with one of your CAM’s, it’s pathetic. Throw in dropback and a low defensive line with depth turned all the way back and you have your classic piece of **** FIFA player.

    My favourite formation is 433. Just takes me back to my Brazil only teams before weekend league made metas more important. But I've always used 4231 as my go to formation to hold on to a lead or against someone I feel is as good as or better than me.

    Just a shame that it's the only formation to really use this year lol at least it isn't 41212 one, two pass and in on goal with your fastest striker and low driven anymore🤣

    I guess in 2019 a formation in a video game can be toxic.

    Yup.

    The formation I fear the worst is 4-3-2-1 with people who have Mbappe, Neymar, icons. They run past me like I’m standing still and play 100 mph around the pitch.

    I use this, only problem is defensively it's just so open and you cant particularly control the game

    I used 4231 and went 17-11 two weeks ago

    This weekend league went 4222 and went 17-11

    Felt like it played better and 4231 was pants in comparison

    Tbf Odontologie mind 4231 that much as it’s quite predictable to play against.
    Im struggling way more to play against 433s, 442 n stuff.
    433(4) User myself

    4-2-3-1 works with a good team, doesn’t work so well with an average team. I have previously played 4-2-3-1, but after the patch prefer formations with two Strikers. A lot of people use it, but not very well. Can be difficult to break down at times (this is where you need the big man Zlatan in the box), albeit I rarely lose to a 4-2-3-1.

    I have used 4222 since November, and have found that it just didn't work as well since patch.
    I switched to 4231, and have been unbeaten since, using exactly the same players, and similar CT's & PI's.

    FIFA 17 4321

    The good ol' days 😇


    I mean, is there a reason NOT to play 4231?
    - There versatility allows people to play drop back + counter, possession based,
    attacking style 433(2)-esque if u use one attacking cdm, wing play..There's not a single thing u can't do in this formation 🤔
    - It fits the gameplay mechanics. Autointercepting is super strong, attacking with 4 men only up front is still a viable tactic, drop back and pressing too (which shouldn't make sense at all btw). Which benefit would you actually have to play 4231 with a high defensive line?
    There isn't anything wrong with the community when it comes to formations, the gameplay just forces them to play in a certain way.

    I will never know why people are bothered by what others are using, whether it's formation or players. Surely it matters more what you are using and enjoying

    Well when opponent using this, surely it effects your level of enjoyment.

    So basically people are struggling against it therefore it's bad and people should use it? Literally the definition of a sore loser

    I've been using 3-1-4-2 for the last 2 weeks now and get the exact same results as when I was using 4-3-2-1

    Formation/players/tactics etc. don't really matter you'll still end up around the same so just use what you enjoy

    Well said, far too many people play this game and expect to finish higher in weekend league and can't take a loss in division rivals without blaming other people's formation etc
