    How is Kimmich as a RM and why not Gnabry for instance? And Moralez at LM?

    Any thoughts on Modric as a CF? Wouldn’t be my normal first choice, but his flashback looks decent, and almost a KDB kind of CF.

    Could work. I use him as a CM though.

    Got Sancho from the ultimate TOTS pack. Team is looking like this now:

    Ter Stegen

    TOTS Carvajal (7 chem)
    Flashback Militao
    Flashback Boateng
    TOTS Davies (7 chem)
    TOTS Sancho
    Flashback Witsel
    Flashback Modric
    FB Douglas Costa
    Flashback Mertens (8 chem)
    TOTS Cristiano Ronaldo

    Modric is great, loving him as a playmaker. My team is much more solid since I put in Witsel for De Jong too. Guess I just need that Vieira type muscle in midfield.

    Thanks man! I'm using your 10 depth tactics and having a bit of luck for once. Beat a top 100 player 4-3 yesterday on rivals.

    Very good point and I can relate to that because I felt that I was missing physicality as well especially in the center of the field. When I got SMS TOTS, it felt like he was the missing piece. Modric now plays as a CF who drops behind and gets back on defense and knows when to find a spot to string a shot. At the same time SMS provides the physicality required at defense and offense and he switches very well with Modric while De Jong takes on play-making from behind.

    Team

    Neuer
    TOTS Dumfries
    FB Boateng
    Baby Maldini
    SS Alaba

    Prime Figo
    TOtS De Jong
    TOTS SMS
    OTW Hazard
    FB Modric

    TOTS Lukaku

    Do you guys all play high line defense? I am having it at 5 now and can go to 7 with its pros and cons but it feels effective many times.

    Been trying out some new tactics on the 4411 with a CAM. Gets the ball forward quickly and presses the opponents which suits my play style.

    POHT, 5 width, 5 depth

    Fast build up, 5 width, 6 players in box, 2 corners, 1 free kicks

    GK - Ter Stegen - default
    RB - TOTS Carvajal - stay back
    CB - FB Boateng - default
    CB - FB Militao - default
    LB - TOTS Davies - stay back
    RM - TOTS Sancho - cut inside, get in behind
    CM - FB Modric - cover center
    CM - FB Witsel - cover center, stay back
    LM - Birthday Costa - cut inside, get in behind
    CAM - FB Mertens - free roam
    ST - TOTS Ronaldo - get in behind

    Won 7 of my last 8 on rivals using that :)

    People's thoughts on who to use at CF out of 96 Sancho or 94 Perisic?

    99 Lewa is at ST.

    Sancho is fantastic at RM for me but I reckon he’d compliment Lewa at CF better than Perisic would

    I am back to use some 4411 in Rivals while doing objectives.

    It´s an ultra attacking setup, but maybe someone might like it too:

    pressure after posession loss
    5
    9

    posession
    5
    5

    ST: stay central
    CF: stay central
    LM+RM: get in behind + free roam
    one CM: stay central, stay back
    one CM: get foreward, stay central
    one FB: overlap
    one FB: inverted

    then activate "join attack for fullbacks" on Dpad

    You will score lots of goals which helps for objectives. But you will concede a lot too. But what does it matter. A 6-4 win is always better than a boring 3-1 grind, isn´t it ?

    Yeah, that´s the way to go :smile: I always play that way. If in doubt: one more attacker instead of a defender !

    In the recent WL where I finished 17-12 I scored 103 goals and conceded 95 in those 29 games. Madness ! I used 3412 and 4231 with attacking fullbacks and one attacking CDM (so basicaly 3 players to defend, compared to the usual 6 staying back with all these park the bus clowns).

    But it was fun and way better than grinding out the same Gold 2 finish while scoring 70 and conceding only 50 or something alike.

    Won 7 of my last 8 on rivals using that :)

    How did you find fast build-up and 6 players running to the box in terms of build-up and transition to offense? Do they bomb forward?

    I like the forward runs. It’s all about getting the ball to Ronaldo’s feet, and using the wide players to stretch play. I’m not a huge skiller or good in tight spaces so I find I create nothing on balanced etc.

    So lm looking for some advice.

    Love this formation.

    However, against the direct counter attacking people l become unstuck.

    The other night is WL l just had a guy play 4-2-4 against me. My fullbacks were on balanced. He literally sat 6 behind the ball and spammed the ball up the wing.

    How do people not concede on the counter?

    This is my problem with the formation and the game. People just sit everyone behind the ball and spam a through ball to a Neymar (for example). I could stop it and play 4-2-3-1.

    Is the game this broken? I’d like to know peoples methods to defeat Counter attacks.


    I use tele broadcast but not great on the mini map. Co-op frustrates me as it just too far out. Any advice on camera settings?

    Hey! I did build this squad but I'm not sure how to setup it for the 4411 formation.
    Who would you play as CF?
