I really like the final third play, but feels absolutely horrendous to build up with due to having only 2 players in central midfield playing vertically from one another.

Any good alternatives??

I really like having that 2 ST and the CAM but don't really want to be playing 352.

Any good similar alternatives??

How do you build up with this grim formation??

    Ive always played with a 4-1-2-1-2 just because I create so much more on the offensive side. You could have your outside mids tuck in to give some more midfield relief?

    I dunno. I feel if i have them tuck in i may aswell play 41212(2).

    I find the passing operates weird in the (2) and I'd definitely have to attack with my fullbacks.

    Wish football had an extra player. 4232 would be great 😅

    I’m in the same boat. Love 41212 because I enjoy all the opportunities it creates, but I’m not as solid defensively. I’ve been playing it for the majority of my years of FIFA (minus the years when you had to pay an arm and a leg for the 41212 formation cards). So far, 433(4) has been the next most enjoyable formation for me, but I’m thinking of going back to 41212 because I just can’t get the same attack going with any other formation. It’s a real dilemma for me.

    I found that 4132 is better, it is basically almost identical to 41212(2), but with CM instead of CAM

    Very valid haha, I only have issues like 1 outta 8 games when it seems like you you get control of the ball and you have to play slow build because your strikers are on an island.

    I recommend 41212(2) with attacking full backs on the Dpad. It’s my go to all out attack formation and if your good defensively unlike me you could use it whole game. I only use it in rivals cause idc if I lose in rivals or if I need a goal in champs

    I tried it before with fast build up was ridiculous like 6 v 3 every possession but often left just 2CB defending.

    Also i dont like the passing. It operates weirdly. Try make a straight pass and my player runs around the back of a cb 80% of the time. And through balls were always overhit.
